After the first few weeks of 2015, we can say that our expectations about what will happen in stock markets have been confirmed. Nowadays, the most important is monetary policy of central banks. What impact does it have on stock indices? See how we use it in trading these markets ...

Trading with stock indices

Stock indices: Italy - MIB and USA - S&P 500 


  • Information is important and even more important is to understand them. That is what we are trying to do in PTA Trading Floor. We want to show you only understandable information so you as an investor will know what else to do. Nobody will be surprised if we say information is money.
  • During last months of 2014 we were mentioning to our clients about opportunities to earn on stock indices. We predicted also stronger growth for European shares compared to those from United States in the end of last year. Euro has weakened because ECB started quantitative easing. For this article, we chose to show you Italian index MIB as example, which we traded. Despite the fact that we predicted weaker growth of US stock indices compared to European ones, we succeed in long position at S&P 500 too. Even when the market was trading sideways. For more information how to take advantage when volatility is low and the market is trading sideways, please read the article - Sideways trading: Open the trade at the price where you would place a Stop Loss order.


Italian stock index MIB: We opened long position at 18875.80 in mid-January, due to the reason described above. It was swing trade (several weeks horizon). Price quickly moved in our direction therefore we closed the trade although we believe that the market has potential to grow further. We hold other long positions in European markets, therefore we will consider further purchases of MIB later. After 14 days we closed our trade at 20732.3 on 5th Feb 2015. We earned in 14 days 2118.27 USD (1856.50 points = €) i.e. + 3.7% in our model portfolio PTA Trading Floor.



US stock index S&P 500 E-mini: We decided on the same day when we opened the position at MIB, that we will take opportunity to profit on the other side of Atlantic. The market has been trading sideways (How to trade sideways? for more info) so we decided that we will buy at the bottom of trading zone, where the price tested December low. Trade was opened at 1980.75. Risk Reward Ratio (RRR) for this trade was 1:4. RRR is a ratio of how much money we are willing to risk to how much we can gain. For example RRR 1:4 would mean that we risk 10 USD so we can earn 40 USD.

We have finally closed the position after 8 days on 28th Jan 2015 and we earned 2038.50 USD (+57.75 points) i.e. + 5.2%. We closed the trade because we think that the market will continue to trade sideways and thus it will lag behind Europe, India, Japan and China. These markets have interesting potential in the coming months or years.

Patience and clarity

"Peter is a patient mentor. He leaves no question unanswered and properly clarified. When I was confused in his comments and interpretations, Peter clearly explained the issue even several times when I needed and justified adequately with practical examples. From my point of view I would put more emphasis on the chart analysis, and details of opening and exiting trade. But on the other hand, these things are discussed at PTA Trading Floor which is included in price. I hope we go through this in more detail on the second session."

Context which I previously ignored

"My expectations about the course were more than satisfied, I have gained a new perspective on trading and I have pushed it much further. Patterns that I thought I knew, have now a new dimension. I have started trying different approaches and strategies than ever before. Now looking at the price chart, I see the context which I previously ignored. Thanks for everything. I won't give you 5 stars just to prevent you from stagnation so you will always improve yourselves and bring other people new information about trading :-)"

PTA helped me to huge change

"Finally, I am in profit after long time. I used to be confused and suffered while trading. I didn't have time for anything and I stressed a lot then. PTA Daily Online helped me to change my life. Harmony works. My family and me are more balanced and last month I made 34% profit. Many thanks for opening my eyes."

Obtaining broader pricture

"The content of the training is complex. Speaker has no problem to adapt to individual requirements. Currently, I am testing gained knowledge in my trading system. I can say now that it definitely improved it and I have moved further. Gradually I become more prudent trader. I have met profesional who knows what he is talking about and can use it in market reality. He is able to pass on his experience in a friendly manner. I do recommend the training because you will get broader picture of what's happening on the markets."

Amazing course

"Huge satisfaction. Interactivity and professional approach. I have gained a contact person with whom I can consult trading issues if necessary. Mentor has extensive experience with trading, can learn, advise and determine the direction of price moves. He is a professional who does not pretend anything. Amazing course that due to mentor's professionalism and interactivity moves trader quickly forward. It is different but interesting approach, which by now I have not pay attention to. It makes your ideas about the potential trading opportunities more realistic."

Positive meeting

”Peter delivered what I expected according to the cost of the course. He explained significant aspects of trading very well. I am an experienced trader and it was interesting to listen to him especially in live trading. That was the first time I saw a real live trading on course. However, his system is partialy suitable for me. I earn money by different techniques, but I don’t say that it wasn’t worth the money. New ideas are always good."

Realistic insight to trading

"Comprehensive training covering all aspects of trading. Peter had adapted training flexibly to meet individual customer demands in time and in course content. I have gained an initial comprehensive and realistic view of the trading and idea of what to do further. Good access to educational materials. Thank you."

Friendly and well informed approach

"The content of the course is absolutely core justification of market funcionality. The trading system is simple to understand. Trades are not frequent, which is good at least in my case as I am busy with other things and generaly I think that I have received greater insight into the markets. As said many times during the training "In simplicity there is beauty". For me it was beneficial that the system does not use any indicators which mainly show just what price has done in the past. Until the course I used to use them, so I'm glad I do not see them on my platform any more."
