    Has anyone here used The Global Trader? I'm not sure whether it is just software or some sort of system. Any thoughts or opinions would be most welcome.

    Their web site is www.globaltrader.net.au

    Regards

    They don't have an ASIC license for a start.

    I like the sound of the personal trainer that comes with the gold pack. I need to work off a bit of this flab.

    40 minutes a week instead of 40hrs? WTF!! :banghead:

    I spend 40 minutes a week waiting for the computer to turn on and off.

    Initial investment $5K profit $46K?

    What do they do, rob banks???

    And, how can an Australian company do this without a lisence? :confused:

    Next time you're on Jetstar, ask the pilot if he/she has the qualifications for flying the plane.

    If not...

    I take then that no one has come across this company before. I have done some research and the lead programmer, Colin Moyan, is the lead programmer and he appears to have been involved with a company called Aussoft.

    Power is very expensive in Peru.

    But, having thought about it, maybe it's only 30 minutes, so I have 10 minutes a week left to make $45K!

    Guys,

    I know this sounds like fun, but can you help a real novice out here. Has anyone heard anything about this company?

    In my opinion - if you are a real novice, then you don't yet have a critical eye required to evaluate any kind of education / advice. In which case it's better to stay away until you're able to recognise what it is your purchasing.

    They could be great or they could be garbage but the point is you probably won't be able to tell - no disrespect of course. :)

    Re: The Global Trader

    btw... it looks like a mechanical system + some kind of bonus for refering new members.

    If you are interested in trading systems I would personally recommend Quantitative Trading Systems by Howard Bandy. He also posts on this forum.

    Not sure if this means they have a licence but this company name is on their website: DATA8 AUSTRALIA PTY LIMITED

    If you stick the same name (DATA8) into here nothing comes up, maybe it's in some other name as below but can't see it on their site.

    Looking at their old website pages you see they did have a couple of licences:

    1. DATA8 Australia Pty Ltd through ASR Software Corporation Pty Ltd Licensed Investment Advisors, ASIC License No: 208868

    2. DATA8 Australia Pty Ltd through Compliance Software Pty Ltd and the licence number is 233029

    Anyone make any sense of that?

    Edit: I guess you could call them to find out if they have one :D
