What is Insider Week?

Insider Week is trading project which began its existence in 2014 and which demonstrate that with the sensible approach even with small trading aсcount you can get a solid income in addition to making money from the main profession.

How did Insider Week come about?

During the combination of main work and trading, we were faced with the issue that the day trading did not suit us, because after the main job and time spent with the family, these was no time left for trading during the week. Only at the weekends, we could fully concentrate on financial instruments and perform the analysis. But it was not in efficient as all markets were closed at weekend. Our passion for trading, enthusiasm for it and the demand in return on investments with minimal time spent on trading led us to focus on main 2 blocks: swing trading and intermarket analysis.

Both approaches allowed us to conduct trading during the week with minimum amount of time spent in the middle of the week since most of the work and required analyses were done on the weekend.

And since on Sunday we already knew what we would do next week, we felt like insiders. This is how the project itself and the name Insider Week were born 🙂

Risk Disclosure: Trading in futures, forex and CFD's involves a high degree of risk and is not suitable for every investor. An investor may possibly lose more than the capital deposited. Only risk capital should be used for trading, or parts of risk capital. Risk capital is money, the loss of which does not change the financial situation or does not affect life. Performance achieved in the past is not a guarantee of future profits.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. The account results presented may vary significantly in gains and losses. One of the limitations of hypothetical results is that they are generated by known historical data. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk - no hypothetical track record can represent the financial risks of actual trading. For example, there is a possibility that trading will be suspended or cancelled if losses are incurred, this can greatly change the actual results. Furthermore, there are numerous other factors that cannot be fully accounted for in hypothetical performance when implementing a trading program, and thus can affect actual results.
