Client Queries

  • How secure is this website?
    We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. For example, this site has a True BusinessID Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate issued by GeoTrust. Therefore, all data passed between your browser and our server remains private and integral.
  • What trading styles do you use?
    Trend following on daily and weekly charts are my favorite and most profitable trading styles. I also swing trade on daily charts and day trade when the conditions are right.
  • Do you supply trading tips or stock recommendations?
    As it says in Way of the Trader, "Trying to trade someone else’s ideas is like trying to comb our hair while looking at their reflection. Ultimately, we are our own opponent when we trade, so mimicking the actions of others is pointless." For this reason, I don't supply trade ideas or recommendations. Having said that, I will occasionally review stocks if asked and share my opinion on the set-up.
  • Do you manage funds for others?
    We do not manage funds for others, we provide educational resources and trading tools for active individual traders.
  • Are you an authorised investment advisor?
    Ian Murphy is not authorized to provide financial or investment advice. Explicitly, the opinions and views expressed should not be understood as an encouragement to purchase or sell any particular security or financial instrument. Content is provided for information and education only and is not a recommendation to trade. Trading is not suitable for everyone and involves the risk of losing money. Please read the Trading Disclaimer.
  • What financial instruments do you trade?
    Liquidity and transparency are essential for traders, so I trade blue chip equities, liquid ETF's and futures. That's not to say other instruments can't be profitably traded, of course they can, but equities and futures suit my trading style and risk profile.
  • What markets do you trade?
    In recent years, I’ve mostly traded US and European equities, plus US futures due to the liquidity, regulation, transparency and free availability of information. The relative strength of the dollar and euro are other important factors.
  • How do you process payments?
    All payments in the store are processed externally by Stripe, one of the largest on-line payment platforms in the world. As a result, we do not have access to client's debit or credit card details because the information never touches our servers.
  • How do you manage my personal information?
    Clients can view their personal information on their profile page and request a copy of their Client Activity Log which contains the time, date, type of activity and IP address for every visit they made to this site. Clients can cancel their subscription at any time and also request to have all information associated with their account deleted. We do not share client information with 3rd parties. This does not include trusted 3rd parties who assist in operating this site, conducting our business, or servicing clients, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. For more information please see the Privacy Policy & Cookies page.
  • How safe is my password?
    Client's passwords are masked through a process called 'hashing'. This replaces the actual password entered with a random set of numbers and letters that are stored on our server. This allows our systems to validate your account credentials when you login without revealing your password. This is a recognized industry security standard.

    Of course, this also means we do not have access to passwords. If a client forgets their password they will have to follow the forgotten password process as explained below.
  • What if I forget my password?
    If a client forgets their password and clicks the 'Forgotten?' link on the login form, a new randomly generated password will be sent to their registered email address. They must click on the button in the email to activate the new password. This password can then be changed on their Profile page.
  • How can I cancel my subscription?
    A client subscription can be cancelled at any time using the 'Cancel Subscription' link on your profile page as shown below. You will continue to have access to locked down areas of the website until the date shown at 'Current Subscription Expires'.
