Follow the trend
By doing this, stock market legends Jesse Livermore and Richard Dennis made millions.

Here’s how you could boost your investments using a simple trend-following method.

(It could also save you from the next big crash).

Dear Investor

One day in October 1983 an unusual advertisement was placed in the Wall Street Journal.

Two things made it unusual.

First, it was placed by one of the most successful traders in the world – Richard Dennis – who had turned a tiny stake of $1,600 into $1 million by the age of 26, and was now worth over $100 million.

And second, he was inviting people to train with him as traders, even if they had no experience of the markets.

It was a bit like Jose Morinho advertising for new apprentices at Manchester United, irrespective of age, fitness or footballing ability.

From the applicants, Dennis selected twenty-one people from a variety of backgrounds: university graduates, a security guard, a salesman, a bartender, a board game designer and one guy who simply said he was ‘unemployed’.

Dennis trained this motley group for two weeks and then gave each of them a trading account. They were set free on the markets to apply their training and try to make money.

The result?

Five years later, they had made a combined profit of $175 million.

That’s right. $175 million. Which works out as an average of $8 million each.

It sounds like the plot of a Hollywood film. Ordinary men and women being trained in a secret system in just two weeks, and a few years later ending up as millionaires.

But it did happen, and it’s a well-documented story.

In the next few minutes I’ll explain to you some of the key trend-following principles used by Richard Dennis – principles which enabled his inexperienced group of trainees to go on to make millions of dollars.

And in addition - which should be especially useful for you - I can show you a practical, easy-to-use trend-following method which anyone can use to make money.

This method allows investors like you to:

  • Identify the most promising sectors in the market at any time.
  • Spot new trends emerging, and get in on them early.
  • Profit from markets anywhere around the globe, and
  • Protect your wealth from downturns and the next big crash.

Let me say one thing from the outset. I’m not a stock-market legend, nor am I promising to turn you into a multi-millionaire. I’m afraid that’s beyond my powers.

But what I can give you is something much more realistic, and very effective.

Before coming across trend investing, I suffered some huge losses in the 2008 financial crisis. Using this trend-following method I subsequently regained all my lost wealth, and more, in a relatively short space of time.

Not only that, but I’ve been making consistent profits ever since, year in, year out – often when the markets have been flat or falling. And so have many other ordinary investors who also use this method.

If we can do it, so can you.

To start with, let me show you the kinds of trends that are constantly appearing in the market, which are great money-making opportunities for us.

Big money-making trends

Within the overall market, some sectors and assets are always performing better than the stockmarket average.

In many cases, very much better.

If you’d had your money in the overall market over the past two years, 2015 – 2017, you would have seen capital growth of 12%

That’s the return from the FTSE 100. Not bad, but not exactly scintillating.

But let’s have a look at the returns you could have achieved by investing in specific market sectors and assets – rather than the stock market as a whole - during this time.

In just 6 months, the UK Small Companies sector produced a 25% return:

In 10 months, Japanese small companies produced a 45% return:

In 5 months, global bonds produced a 20% return:

Most profitable of all, if you’d put your money into gold, you could have seen a 160% return on your money in just 8 months.

Remember, these are all specific sector and asset gains that occurred during a period when the FTSE 100 – the overall stock market - went up by only 12%.

In other words, by investing in particular sectors as they surged upwards you could have significantly outperformed the market as a whole.

Obviously it’s easy to pull out these numbers in hindsight. Even so, all the trends I’ve just mentioned were picked up using the Saltydog system.

In our demonstration portfolio – which we provide to show you how the system works - we made 27% from UK small caps, 25% from Japanese small companies, 22% from global bonds, and 89% from gold.

The real question is: How can you spot in advance that these sectors are going to go up?

This is where we come to the core principle of trend investing, made famous by Richard Dennis and his eclectic bunch of trainees – and the basis of our own Saltydog system.

But just before we get to that, let’s look at the way most people invest their money, and what it is they’re missing.

“Buy and hold”: most investors don’t know what else to do

The stock market is volatile.

It goes up, it goes down. And every now and then there are big crashes.

As an investor you need a way of dealing with this. For most people, that means “buy and hold”.

This is the ‘passive’ approach to investing, where you don’t try to respond to market movements at all. Instead you ignore them. In other words you buy stocks or funds and hold on to them for months or years, irrespective of what the market does – and trust that you’ll come out on top over the long term.

Why do most investors do this?

For one, it doesn’t take much work. (One good reason why financial advisors are fond of this approach).

But more importantly, most people simply don’t believe it’s possible to get in and out of the market at the right time. That would be “timing the market”, and only super-sophisticated investors or whizz-kid traders are supposed to attempt that.

This is simply not true.

And the fact is that “buying and holding” – i.e. sticking with your investments for the long term, and not reacting to anything the market does - has two big potential risks.

First, you’ve got a very good chance of experiencing enormous losses along the way.

Huge market crashes happen pretty frequently. In only the last 15 years there have been two crashes of 50%. There was the dotcom bust of 2000-03. And then there was the financial crisis of 2007-09.

Both times your stock market investments would have been cut in half.

Not only that, but even if you’d patiently endured these two market crashes and stuck it out for nearly two decades, you could well have achieved capital growth of precisely... zero.

Just look at the chart below to see what happened.

After hitting a peak of nearly 7,000 in 1999, the FTSE 100 never went significantly higher for the next 17 years.

It’s only this year, 2017, that it’s started to really move above that level.

Is that what you want with your investments?

If you were hoping for capital gains, that’s seventeen years of going nowhere. Nearly two decades. How long are you prepared to be a ‘passive’ investor, hanging on in the market to see any positive return on your money? Thirty years? Forty?

This is one fatal flaw of ‘buy and hold’ investing.

Get in at the wrong time and you could buy and hold for decades, and see little or nothing for it. You never know when the next big crash could wipe out years of hard-earned gains. That’s definitely not something you want to happen as you’re getting closer to retirement.

And the second problem with buy and hold?

You can miss out on some fantastic opportunities to make money.

The world doesn’t stand still, and neither do markets. New companies emerge and grow, whilst old ones fade away. New sectors and regions come into favour, whilst established ones stagnate.

If you - or your financial advisor working on your behalf - just invest in the market as a whole and then stick with those investments for months or years, you could easily be missing out.

So how can you become an effective active investor instead? And what’s the secret to making profits from upward trends?

Trend investing: the opposite of everything you’ve been told

There’s one particular saying that encapsulates how many investors think they should make money in the markets:

“Buy low, sell high”.

In other words you look for investments that seem cheap, undervalued, or are heading down, hoping that they’ll go up again, like this:

Intuitively, it makes perfect sense. Buy something when it’s cheap, and then wait for the price to rise again.

The trouble is that often things don’t work out like this. Falling shares frequently keep going down or sideways, not higher.

This is where trend investing comes in. And it starts from a different premise altogether.

Whilst value investors look for investments that have fallen in price, trend investors like us get excited about prices that are rising.

Why? Because, thanks to what’s known as the ‘momentum effect’, it’s likely that any market trend – whether up or down - will keep heading in the same direction. Rising prices tend to keep rising, and falling prices tend to keep falling.

So a trend investor is on the lookout for investments like this:

For many people this is counter-intuitive. If a share has hit a new high, most people think it will go back down again – and they’re reluctant to invest at that point.

But a lot of times, they should. You buy into a rising trend, and hold on as long as the price keeps rising.

Why does this work? Essentially because of the herd behaviour of investors. In the words of respected wealth manager Ben Carlson:

“Fear, greed, overconfidence and confirmation bias can lead investors to pile into winning areas of the market after they’ve risen… or pile out after they’ve fallen.”

By using a trend investing strategy, you can take advantage of the market’s herd behaviour - and make more money.

Of course the momentum effect doesn’t work on every single occasion, and it doesn’t continue indefinitely. At some point every upward trend will flatten off or start heading downwards.

But it certainly happens often enough to make trend investing a great method for catching upward movements, and also – just as important - for getting out when the market starts to turn down.

There’s plenty of research that bears this out. As one paper from the Journal of Portfolio Management states:

“The existence of momentum is a well-established historical fact”.

This is the key principle that market legend Richard Dennis ingrained into his trainees. As he put it, “Markets in motion tend to stay in motion”.

“Chasing momentum is such a successful investment strategy.”
John Stepek, Executive Editor, MoneyWeek

Not only this, but our direct experience (and profits) over the past fifteen years has confirmed to us - and to other investors who use our Saltydog system – the huge benefits of trend investing.

Let me show you how it works. Here’s how we spotted the long uptrend in UK small companies, starting last year.

Last August we saw a new positive trend emerging. As you can see from the chart below (the orange line at the bottom), although the UK small companies sector had been falling, there was a sudden turnaround at the end of July 2016 with a 4-week gain of roughly 9%.

August 2016: new strong trend emerges

According to our rules, this 4-week positive uptrend was an important signal indicating a good investment opportunity. In our Saltydog demonstration portfolio we actually made an initial investment at this point (with our own money), to illustrate the system at work.

This trend continued to move upwards over the following weeks, rising to a healthy 15% gain by the end of the month. This was a good example of confirmation of a trend, and we correspondingly increased our investment in our demo portfolio.

Three weeks later: the trend is up 15% and rising

This process continued over the following months, with the UK small companies sector continuing to rise, and us adding more money to it.

The upshot was that over the space of ten months – from August 2016 to June 2017 – our demonstration portfolio showed a very nice 26.8% gain from this trend.

This illustrates two key points: how we can spot an uptrend as it starts to emerge, and how we gradually add more money as a trend becomes more established.

Thus we “ride our winners”, and can keep making more money on the way up.

3 common myths about trend investing,
and why they’re wrong

As I’ve explained, our trend investing system is based on identifying movements in particular market sectors.

At any one time, some sectors are heading upwards, whilst others are flat or heading downwards.

For example, during 2015 property steadily moved up, whilst stocks headed down. In the latter part of 2016 small company shares zoomed ahead – as we’ve just seen - whilst large companies lagged behind.

What Saltydog users have said about trend investing:

“I have long given up trying to understand the stock markets from a fundamentals point of view. There’s no obvious correlation and I see it more of a herd mentality. So therefore I like the Salty system… My annualised return since I started is 8.5% .”  R.L.

“Value investing, which I had been trying to apply, is not for one in his late 70s.  You have to stomach long periods when key holdings are deeply under water.  Back the horse that IS running fast, not one that just might run fast… In 2015 I made 8.8%.”  D.E.

“I like being able to quickly react to changes in the market. My other investments which are supposed to be actively managed by an IFA hardly seem to change from one year to the next and I keep being told “it’s for the long term”, which seems lazy to me.”  O.K. 

Shares, bonds, property, emerging markets, technology, high-yielding companies and so on… the situation is always changing.

You might think it’s complicated to invest in particular sectors, but it’s not at all. It’s extremely easy, using the relevant funds. Whichever sector you’re interested in (and we want the ones heading up), there is a huge variety of possible funds to invest in – and our system picks out the very best performers.

You can think of trend investing like putting your money on a horse race, except with one enormous advantage - as the race progresses, you are always able to switch your money to the leading horse, so that you’re in the best possible position throughout.

In other words, your money is always making the best return that the current conditions allow – riding upward movements in the market, and avoiding the downturns.

Obviously enough, this is an active system of investing.

It means you need to be monitoring the market regularly – though no more than once a week – using the special data and charts that we provide. And you need to be moving your money in and out of different sectors, to take advantage of the uptrends and to avoid the downtrends.

In case you’re wondering, it’s not at all difficult if you follow our simple rules. I’ll explain more about how it works shortly.

Now, as you may be aware, what I’ve just described is not the mainstream view of how you should be investing.

Far from it.

In fact the Saltydog system goes completely against what most investment advisors, professionals, fund managers, gurus and journalists tell you to do.

These experts all say that private investors should not attempt to get in and out of the market. They think that anyone who tries to do so is mistaken and will lose money. They tell you to stick to ‘passive’ investing.

So you’re probably wondering…

… if all these investment professionals say that “timing the market” is impossible for a private investor, then how can the Saltydog method work?

And how come there are so many satisfied Saltydog members, showing extremely positive results in their portfolios?

So let’s go through the main reasons the experts give for why you shouldn’t try to take advantage of market trends.

I’ll tell you what we think, you can hear from current Saltydog users, and then you can decide for yourself.


“Private investors can’t time the market”

The first objection to active investing is that private investors are demonstrably bad at it.

Most investors, left to their own devices, time the market completely wrong. They get frightened by market crashes and sell out on the way down. And then they wait until a bull market has really got going, and buy late on the way up. So they buy high and sell low – the exact opposite of how to make money.

In fact a study conducted in the US found that, over the last 30 years, the average investor in funds made an annual return of just under 4%. That’s while the US market (the S&P 500) made an annual return of 11%. In other words, private investors under-performed the market by 7% every year, for three decades!

This is a pretty shocking statistic, and would no doubt be replicated here in the UK. The primary emotions of fear and greed are true of investors anywhere, leading the vast majority of them to make extremely unprofitable decisions.

Passive investing:
the argument for it

Let me make it clear: there is a very solid case for long term passive investing – where you buy cheap index tracking funds, diversify, invest regular amounts month-by-month, and rebalance your portfolio every now and then. If you do this, then when the market falls, you benefit from buying shares at cheaper prices – helping your returns over the long term. This approach is also simple to operate, taking very little time.

Of course nothing comes without a price. And for all its simplicity, passive investing has two important requirements: emotional self-discipline, and a very long time-frame i.e. decades. It’s very uncomfortable holding on and continuing to invest when markets are plummeting and you’re watching your wealth dropping by thousands or tens of thousands of pounds. Plus, for many investors, retirement isn’t decades away – it may be only ten or so years ahead, or right now.

Also if you’ve finished accumulating your savings pot and aren’t contributing further regular amounts to your investments, a falling market is simply going to lose you money – rather than be an opportunity to buy cheaper shares.

Personally, I don’t like losing money, ever. And I’m not prepared to wait literally for decades to see if a passive investing strategy eventually produces the results I need. I want to actively manage my investments. And I know the Saltydog system works – which is why I use it.

So one obvious moral to draw from this is: Don’t try to be clever about timing the market – you’re just not up to it. Don’t even bother.

And that’s exactly what most investment advisors say.

There’s even a saying that encapsulates this view: “It’s not about timing the market, it’s about time in the market”. In other words, you’re far better off buying and holding.

But here at Saltydog, we have an entirely different view.

Yes, most investors aren’t good at timing the market. We don’t disagree with that.

But most investors don’t have a clear method or strategy that they apply. They’re simply at the mercy of the latest market news – getting frightened when the market drops, and getting over-optimistic when it heads up. In other words, they’re making very important decisions based only on vague ideas, feelings or guesses – which can easily change from one day to the next.

The key point here is that the Saltydog system is not based upon a vague, subjective view of what the market, a fund or a stock might be about to do. It’s a system. It’s based on hard numbers. And there are clear rules to follow.

So with Saltydog you’re not acting on your own hopes, fears or hunches of where the market might be heading. On the contrary, you look at some very specific numbers and charts which we update for you every week – data that clearly shows you trends that are already happening in the market – and you make your decisions from that.

It’s not going by your own feelings. And it doesn’t rely on you making predictions or guessing where the market might be heading next. Instead it’s looking at the weekly Saltydog data and following a few simple rules.

As long as you’re capable of comparing a few numbers (“This is the highest… These are the most consistent”) and following some basic guidelines, it’s perfectly possible for you to take advantage of market trends using the Saltydog system.

Here’s what people using the Saltydog system – private investors just like you – have said. And please note, they were investing over a period when the FTSE’s annual performance was often flat or even negative:

“It’s easy to understand and lets you know the sectors which are doing well at present. I’m up 25% in 18 months… It’s worth every penny.” David Moody

“It’s easy to follow and I’m gaining in confidence. My initial investment has grown 30% in under 3 years. Delighted.” Christine Corner

“33% in 3yrs since subscribing.” Andrew Ashworth

“Since October 2010 I have made an annualised 9.69%… I base decisions on the data used in Saltydog, which is very good.” M.I.

“I like the fact that the work is done for me re. trend analysis of performance. Returns in three full years: 16% (2013), 7.5% (2014) and 10.5% (2015).” P.W.

“About 25% in 3 years. It clearly beats other ‘systems’.” Alan Ashton

“I like the concise structure of how funds performance is measured and displayed. Performance 2015: 16%.” R.F.

“I have averaged 12% using a blend of my own choices and Saltydog. I find it a thoughtful, professional and productive system that does ‘everything it says on the tin’.” Mike Jamieson

You see why I’m so confident that the Saltydog system works for ordinary investors?

I strongly believe that any reasonably intelligent and motivated investor can achieve this kind of performance using Saltydog, and that includes you.

So now let’s hear the next objection from the mainstream experts.


“Active investing is costly and your gains will be eaten up by trading fees”

The next objection to active investing is that it’s extremely costly.

Well, the answer to this is simple: No, it isn’t.

OK, it’s a bit more expensive that doing little or nothing with your portfolio. But the charges probably aren’t what you imagine at all.

Let’s say you have a portfolio of £100,000. With the biggest broker in the country, Hargreaves Lansdown, it will cost you precisely £450 a year to buy and sell as many funds as you like, as often as you like.

With Hargreaves you pay a 0.45% management charge per year (that’s your £450) and then there is no charge at all for buying and selling funds. You can buy and sell as often as you please, without incurring a single additional penny in costs.

With another broker, Charles Stanley, it’s even cheaper. With a £100,000 portfolio it would cost you only £250. That’s a management charge of 0.25% – and again, no charge at all for buying or selling funds.

Let’s put this into context.

Yes, with Hargreaves Lansdown you are paying nearly half a percent of your portfolio value every year in fees. (Though with portfolios over £250,000 the percentage fee is lower than 0.45%).

But what about your potential returns, using the Saltydog system?

We have a demonstration portfolio that we set up to show how our system works. This very cautious, safety-first ‘Tugboat’ portfolio is up 58% over the past six years – averaging just under 10% a year. (Many of our subscribers, taking a more adventurous approach, have done much better).

This performance figure takes into account all costs.

In other words, even with the necessary broking charges you can still take full advantage of the Saltydog trend investing system for very healthy returns.

Yes, you’ve paid some costs. But have your gains been eaten up by your trading fees? Not anywhere near.

And so we come to the last thing mainstream investment experts say about trend investing, and why they think you shouldn’t do it.


“Trend investing is too difficult & time-consuming for ordinary investors”

The final objection is that trend investing is just too difficult and time-consuming for the average investor to pursue successfully.

My short answer to this is: nonsense!

But I’ll give you the longer answer too.

Since the Saltydog system is all about actively managing your investments, of course it requires some work and takes up some time compared with passive investing, where you do practically nothing.

So if you don’t want to give up any time at all, or you prefer to have one meeting a year with your financial advisor, for example, then the Saltydog system is definitely not for you.

But is it too difficult or time-consuming? No. At least, not for any investor who wants to properly take control of their their money and out-perform the FTSE – which is a perfectly realistic possibility.

I’ll give you the practical details in a minute. But rest assured, you don’t need any technical skills or complicated financial knowledge. You just need to be able to compare some numbers and look at a few simple charts. It’s really not difficult.

Again, you don’t have to believe me.

Here are some other comments we’ve received from people who have been using the Saltydog system for the past few years:

“Simple, easy to use system. Very pleased.” S.L.

“Very simple to follow, has given me an 8% return annually. Allows me to draw a better income from my pension than otherwise.” M.K.

“I feel safe and in full control using your advice. No unnecessary risk taken. Easy to understand and simple to follow.” Doug Jordan

“The system is easy to use and update. I have used it successfully over the past two years making 15% and 7%.” S.H.

As I say, these people are not experts or financial professionals – they are private investors just like you.

They find the Saltydog system simple and easy to follow. They have significantly beaten the market. And they have been making consistent, positive returns, even in years when the FTSE 100 has fallen or is flat.

And there’s absolutely no reason why you couldn’t have an equally positive experience, with an equally profitable effect on your investments.

In a moment I’ll explain how you can do this. But first, a brief introduction.

The bad experience that got Saltydog Investor started

Saltydog Investor was set up nearly ten years ago by entrepreneur and successful businessman, Douglas Chadwick.

It was prompted by a very bad experience he had with his financial advisers.

After selling a successful business in 1985, Douglas invested £150,000 via a financial services company. Being busy building up another multi-million pound business, Douglas paid no attention to his investments, trusting that they were in expert hands.

Fifteen years later, in 2000, he decided to enquire about them - and to his horror discovered that his investments had gone absolutely nowhere. They had effectively been forgotten. The returns were close to zero, whilst the management fees and costs were anything but.

First he was extremely angry at the incompetence of his so-called investment ‘managers’. And then he decided to do something about it.

I should say that at various stages in his life, Douglas has been a deckhand on a deep-sea fishing trawler, a navigator on a merchant navy ship (hence the name “saltydog”), has obtained a degree in Theoretical Physics, and has built up two successful manufacturing businesses worth millions.

So when it came to taking control of his investments, he did it in his own unique way – being both very practical and adept at mathematical analysis.

The result was the first version of the Saltydog trend investing system, which Douglas used extremely successfully from the year 2000 onwards, making substantial gains and never losing money in a year – not even in 2008 when the FTSE 100 fell nearly 30%.

Whilst this system was originally for his own personal use, Douglas always wanted to help other investors. He felt that they, like him, were being badly let down by the financial services industry. And so in late 2008 he decided it was time to make his system available to others.

With a team of experts in finance and engineering – including me, Richard Webb - the system was automated, using a series of algorithms. We did many months of back-testing and research. We expanded the data sources, gaining access to the most comprehensive data available, covering tens of thousands of funds. Together with web and design professionals we worked hard on the presentation of the data, so that it was simple to review and understand. And we refined the Saltydog approach even further, making it accessible and easy for anyone to use. We finally launched two years later in 2010.

This is how the Saltydog Investor came about – a system borne out of frustration with mainstream investment approaches, and which has been proven to work over the last fifteen years.

Now let’s get down to some practical details, and how you can use the Saltydog system yourself - to take advantage of rising trends, avoid the big downturns and potentially out-perform the FTSE.

I’ll also tell you how you can receive our in-depth handbook, “How to beat the market using trend investing”, which reveals everything you need to use the Saltydog system effectively and profitably for yourself.

Trend investing: why we use funds

As I mentioned earlier, the Saltydog system is based upon investing in funds, not purchasing individual company shares.

The reason for this is very simple: when Douglas started investing it was using funds, and he developed the system from there.


“How to beat the market using trend investing”

Our free, in-depth guide to trend investing covers:

  • How to spot profitable trends
  • When to buy and sell for consistent gains
  • How to choose the best sectors & funds
  • Avoiding market downturns and crashes, and
  • The method behind Saltydog’s consistent performance, and how you can match it yourself.

To claim your free copy, see the details below.

But there are also three definite advantages of funds:

  • *They provide exposure to all markets and all sectors across the globe – allowing us to take advantage of uptrends wherever they occur.
  • *They spread your risk across a range of different companies within one sector, meaning that your portfolio isn’t dramatically affected if one particular company gets into trouble.
  • *You get smart people with research teams doing stock picking for you, meaning that you don’t have to be an expert in individual companies.

Now some investors only want to pick individual company shares.  That’s fine, but it’s not what the Saltydog system is about.

Other investors object to the large salaries that fund managers get paid, or are concerned about the costs of buying and selling funds.

To be honest, neither of those objections really concern us.

Of course we want to keep our costs down.  As I said earlier, you can buy and sell as many funds as you like by paying your broker a reasonable annual management charge.

But ultimately we’re looking at the overall return our investments are making.  As you’ve seen from the Saltydog portfolio and from the gains achieved by Saltydog users, we’re consistently performing extremely well.

And that’s the main thing we care about.

So how can you achieve this too?

How to use the Saltydog system for
impressive gains

Here’s how to use the Saltydog system.

First, you’ll need to read our members’ handbook – which won’t take long. It explains how to spot new trends in the market, when to get in, and the best time to get out.

So what happens if you do want to continue with the system after the two month free trial?

Given the high price of investment services on offer from mainstream financial companies, it would have been easy for us to charge an equally hefty rate.  Although there is nothing like the Saltydog system available elsewhere, many stock market data services cost thousands of pounds a year… and aren’t nearly as easy to use as Saltydog.

But we really don’t want the price to exclude the average private investor from the benefits of Saltydog.

For that reason, we’ve kept the annual cost of membership to just £300.

And we try to make the payments as easy for you as possible.  You don’t have to pay the membership fee upfront all in one go.  Instead we only ask you to pay £25 per month, and you can cancel at any time you like.

In other words, you get the first two months of Saltydog completely FREE, and after that the most you’re ever committing is £25 at a time.

Considering that we’re offering you the chance to ride the uptrends, avoid the downturns and potentially beat the market, I really can’t stress enough how good I think this offer is.

If you do take up the free trial, it’s very easy to cancel.  Just send me an email at any time during your two-month trial period, to, and I’ll cancel your trial immediately.  We don’t take any money until your two-month trial is over.  There’s no catch and no small print.

We’re extremely confident in the value of the Saltydog system, and we want you to be completely happy with it.

Should you choose not to continue with the Saltydog service after your trial period, you’ll be able to keep the Members’ Guide and Starter Guide, plus all the emails and newsletters we’ve sent you during the two months, with my compliments.

Remember… the Saltydog system gives you the chance to ride the big uptrends and beat the market.

Now’s your opportunity to really take control of your investments, responding effectively to market movements, and growing your wealth steadily and consistently.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Saltydog system of trend investing.

Here’s what some more very satisfied subscribers have said:

Excellent service… Very impressed with downside protection… A perfect foil to ‘buy and hold’ of the mainstream press.” Simon Payne

Trending to around 12% annualised, even with all the trauma of the past few months.” David Gauld

I love the fact that it gives me the confidence to invest my own money with sensible guidance plus the information to enable me to make rational decisions.” Fran Sharp

The advice makes sense. The whole idea makes sense… I made 8.5% in 2015 [when the FTSE 100 made a 5% loss] which is no mean feat and largely thanks to you pointing me towards funds that I had no idea existed.” R.W.
