“Michael took the brave step of becoming a full time investor in 2016. An exciting journey I embarked upon myself in 2004. Whilst most new investors are unlikely to embark on the activity full time, this book distils what Michael has discovered on that journey, and presents it in a readily digestible form for others starting out on their own investment journey – no matter how much or how little time they are prepared to devote to the activity.”

UK Stock Trading Handbook Ebook
5/5

“Aged 61 and recently retired, I badly needed to improve the return on my capital until my pensions kicked in. My prior investing record was dismal, despite the bull market years I had made many mistakes and doubt my return over the period was any better than inflation. It was therefore time to take this business seriously and make some proper money.
Much of this material is not generally found in books on investing, nor is it particularly easy to find on the web. For instance, the website for the London Stock Exchange will tell you all about the L2 and auctions at the technical level but not how to use them – this book does.
Michael says this is the book he would have like to have been available to him when he started investing and I agree, it has been invaluable to me and really turned my whole approach around.”

Answers to your questions

My name is Michael Taylor. I’ve been trading UK stocks for a living since 2016. I previously worked at Vodafone as an intern, but I didn’t like spreadsheets and I also got rejected for their graduate program in Germany (so that was that).

I knew I wanted to trade stocks because I enjoyed researching and learning the game. Stocks move for certain reasons and I wanted to find out why.

Since then I’ve made a lot of mistakes, and when I started there was no book that could’ve saved me a lot of money.

I’ve also spoken at various events such as Mello and TEDx (as well as on cruise ships), and I write The Trader column at Investors Chronicle.

You shouldn’t anybody unless you have a reason to do so. 

It’s easy to spam ads these days and promote fake flashy lifestyles inside a hired private jet, or by claiming to make $20,000 clicking a few buttons by the pool. 

If it was that easy, everyone would be doing it. 

These people probably won’t be around in six months because people aren’t stupid. 

Investing in stocks is a skill that focused time to learn. 

Trading is even harder.

Look on any UK stockbroker that offers CFDs and spread bets and due to MiFID II regulation they are now required to show how many of their clients lose money. It’s usually 80% and above.

My book has been free since 2019 and will continue to be – if you don’t learn anything, then feel free to unsubscribe and you’ll never hear from me again.

These ebooks are free because if you learn something and decide you want to learn to trade, then you might consider my course.

If you just want the ebooks and my free newsletter, that’s fine.

If you just want the ebooks and then wish to unsubscribe and never hear from me again, that’s fine too.

Not much. You can start with £50 in a tracker fund. But if you want to invest in individual companies, then realistically you need at least £1,000 per stock. 

This is because commissions at most serious brokers are at least £8 for a trade.

That means a buy and sell will cost you £16, or 1.6% of your £1,000.

You’re welcome to stick around for my monthly newsletter, Buy the Breakout. It’s free. But if you want to take trading more seriously, then you might be interested in my UK stock trading course.
