Trading online demands as much prudence as any other investments

There is no way you can divorce risk from trading:
One of the most salient features of trading is the risk involved in it. How can someone separate a quality that is inherently generic? If there is risk there is also the scope for earning extraordinary profits. Who wants to play safe when there is so much of money to be earned?
Critics say that bitcoin code is a scam:
But I want to ask them if they have actually used this one?
I have done a comprehensive research on the topic of people calling just about any trading software a scam. I have got back to them on their personal chats and mailed them all with this one basic question. And what do you think I found out?
A majority of them do not answer me at all. I am left to imagine if they are actually alive or are they fake accounts that were created to cry wolf. From a small number of people, I have got answers that fleetingly describe that they tried to trade on the Bitcoin Code but they either were too discouraged with many a negative review or that they came up to the step where they had to fund their trading account and then shied away from it.
This left with a very big question and that is if these people who have not even funded and started their trading account keep calling such legitimate trading software a scam how in the world can we believe in the veracity of such reviews?
The reviews are all made up:
I can tell you for sure after so much research that almost all the reviews that you find on the internet are made up. They are cut copied and pasted from various review sites so that it discourages people from investing in the legit software. There is definitely more to this than negative propaganda. I am guessing that these reviewers are paid by software that has a vested interest in the fact that people read them and be discouraged from trading on them.
I have used bitcoin code and I will tell you that it is perfectly legit software. there is no doubt that it is one because within a span of three weeks I have made a profit of $500 and that is like doubling my initial investment. I have made losses too but made more than up with my earnings. Where is the reason to crib then, eh?!

Fox & Chicken – Werewolf hits the henhouse!

Everyone’s favourite party game gets a farmyard twist! Hungry Foxes versus brave Chickens – who will survive?

Making the creating signals strategy work

How you can make this type of strategy’s work is that you must know what type of news events is expected and when they can be expected. To help people understand what and why most of the platforms that offer binary options trading have an economic calendar in them. For example, you can consider that there is one company that is going to announce its earnings report in a couple of days start planning your activities and analysis that you’re going to use for trading during these days and whether you are going to use robot-like SnapCash Binary. If there was any way that you could know what to expect from these reports it would be of great help.

By knowing the expectations from the report you can make decisions beforehand by attempting to guess what contents it might have and in which position the market is going to move. If you are not able to expected report information, you can still take decisions once the report has been announced depending on understanding what the market is expecting and how it is going to react.

The advantage of using this approach for trading is that it is very easy in understanding and learning. However, it also has some disadvantages such as the market is not so predictable. One example you can consider this at suppose a company releases its reports of earning and say that upon listening you come to know that it is a positive news, this means that the price will go really high and the market might seem that it will go in a positive way with the first statement but once the complete report is red there is some more information which tells that the prophets are not going to be at the level they were supposed to be which will make the market to react in a negative manner because you would have predicted that the market will move fast whereas as a result of report it will move lesser than you would have expected. There are chances that it might even move in a different direction than predicted. Theory will see that even after getting a positive news event the price of the trade goes down.

Another difficulty you will face is that the duration of movement as to how long it is going to last and to what extent it is going to go. You can consider the same example mentioned above, it suggested a positive report which means that the shares of the company are going to increase but it is hard to predict that how long the rise in the price position is going to stay and to what maximum amount it’s going to go.

About the game

Fox & Chicken is a (slightly) more family friendly take on the classic party game Werewolf. You may also know it as Mafia but, however you play, the idea is the same. Players are handed a card at the start of a game that gives them a secret role, splitting them into two teams – in the case of our game, you’re either on the side of the nasty Foxes or the innocent but tasty Chickens. You win or lose as a team – it’ll either end up with Vulpine Victory or Cheering Chickens!

How do I get the game

The game is fully funded and is now in insane stretch goal mode!

We are currently using Kickstarter to fund Fox & Chicken and we funded in 22 hours and 51 minutes. That was pretty quick! Like, unexpectedly quick! Thankfully we have plans set in motion for stretch goals aplenty – so head over to Kickstarter for the latest offerings. Note that our Kickstarter campaign closes on 1 May 2013.

Back Fox & Chicken – Werewolf hits the henhouse! on Kickstarter!

What do I get with Fox & Chicken?

The basic game comes with twenty cards:

  • seven regular Chickens, each with unique art!
  • five standard Foxes, each with unique art!
  • the Egg, which will always be safe from harm!
  • the Little Chick, who has the power to tell whether or not there’s a Fox nearby!
  • the Mother Hen, who offers protection!
  • the Prize Chicken, who could cause everyone’s downfall!
  • the Rooster, who could potentially chase anyone away!
  • the Chicken in a Fox Suit, working on both sides!
  • the Den Mother, a vixen with an appetite!
  • the Fox Cub, an over-excitable little thing!

And now there’s a whole pile of extra stretch goal cards, too:

  • the Little Metal Hen, our first Stretch Goal!
  • the Zombie Chicken, Stretch Goal number two!
  • the Mad Scientist Chicken is Stretch Goal three!
  • the Vegan Fox is our fourth Stretch Goal!

…and, of course, there could always be more if we keep on going!

If you’re interested in checking out the games that we’re currently working on at Sprocket Games, give us a shout via email – – and we’ll let you know what we’re currently working on!

At the moment, we have three games in development:

There are good days and bad days in trading. If today is a bad day and you have got nothing but loss, it would be better than you put an end to trading for the day since you have I have lost huge amounts maybe because the decisions you are taking are not right and if you continue taking wrong decisions you might end up regretting to continue trading similar to the decision one might take about using SnapCash Binary which is a bad idea. Instead of relying on things like faith, luck and sixth sense intuitions it would be a good idea to believe in your strategies and master in analysis and skills. Apart from doing analysis and using your skill, there are types of strategies that you can use for binary options trading. There are a lot of strategies that are there which you can implement which are different but there are three elements which are common for all these strategies.

  • Making use of binary options trading signals by generating them and indicating these signals on which trade they must be placed.
  • What is the amount you should be trading?
  • Improvise your strategy each time.

There are a lot of possibilities because every step has a different precise strategy. If you want to develop your own strategy that will be successful one you must understand all these elements to the extreme. Let’s understand the first element in depth

Generating Or Creating Signals

The work of the signals in trading is to indicate that assets price is going to move in a certain direction. As we all know that the assets price keeps fluctuating every time. What helps is that some source through which you can predict the movement in the price even before it is going to happen, and the signal does the exact same job.  There are two different ways to create signals, the first one would be creating signals using the events from the news and the second one would be making use of your technical analysis. The no voice traders and people who do not have experience in trading make use of news events to generate signals. This approach involves keeping an eye on the news like

  • Company announcements
  • Announcements by industries
  • Inflation figures that are released by the government

The way this works is that if the news given is a positive one then will predict that the price is going to increase and if the news is negative it means that the prices are going to decrease.

Pocket Universe is a space exploration game for two to four players with a bit of meanness thrown in for good measure. Travel around the Pocket Universe in your ship, collect as many resources as possible and either spend them to improve your status or stash them for points!

This Just In is a party game based around creating the best headlines you can from a selection of cards in your hand. Each round sees one player, the Editor, demand stories based on a certain subject. The other players then submit their responses hoping to catch the Editor’s eye, then must tell the story behind the headlines. Between three and eight can play this light, quick and fun game.

Dice Quest is a cut throat extravaganza of chucking dice and getting the better of a dungeon filled with monsters. Create a grid of dice to boost your abilities, take down enemies (with or without your fellow players’ assistance!) and get out of the depths with the most loot. Again, between two and four can play.

Episode List

The Little Metal Dog Show began back in April 2010 with an idea to produce a podcast on board games that did things a little differently. It took a while to decide the approach that would be taken, but soon an interview-based show quickly became the format to stick with. Each episode normally has a couple of interviews that could really cover any area from the world of gaming – as long as someone is interesting, they’re welcome to come on as a guest. From players and designers to mathematicians and film-makers, The Little Metal Dog Show looks far and wide for people who – above all else – have something to say.

Most of the currency pairs that are majorly traded on a foreign exchange market are most of the times highly vulnerable because of the reasons like

  • The market is very active
  • Most of the times volatile
  • They are event-driven

In daily trading of 24 hours, there is news that is announced about the economics throughout the day to which it is highly vulnerable. Because of the time constraints and the ever-growing Technology, the currency traders who are highly active want to gain access to the news from the Forex market, the charts, accessing the accounts that they have created for trading and quotes just at the tip of the finger all day long. The latest advancement in mobile phones that is smartphones that has a lot of software and applications such as Tesler App that is freely available has become one of the popular ways of staying up to date to do Forex trading.


The mobile apps have become so famous that any Forex broker you choose offers you an app for trading. There are few brokers whose apps have become so popular that even if that particular trader is not taking help of that broker to make trades, he is still making use of their app. There are a lot of trending apps for Forex trading that provide access freely to the latest news, price quotations and charts. Below are some search apps enlisted

Little Metal Television – Relic Runners with Matthew Dunstan!

Blimey, I always forget how long it takes to sort out video stuff when compared to doing the podcast… Anyway, here’s the latest instalment of Little Metal Television! This time around I got to meet up with a previous guest on the show, designer Matthew Dunstan. He’s responsible for the latest release from Days of Wonder with his brand new game called Relic Runners – not too bad considering this is his first published effort!

The things that you should know if you want to start trading the cryptocurrency

Apart from the things that we already know like we should have a wallet and a platform to start trading Bitcoins and become a Bitcoin Trader, there are few other things that are enlisted below that you can understand and start trading the cryptocurrencies.

  1. Not a part of normal stock exchange market: When we say cryptocurrency exchange, many times it so happens that people confuse it to the normal stock exchange that is present or the thing that it might be a part of this. Cryptocurrency exchange and the stock exchange are completely two different platforms. You can choose to use Coinbase which is an exchange as well as a broker for trading or even better the advanced version of Coinbase that is GDAX which will cost you less. Both the Coinbase as well as GDAX are nothing like the Wall Street the exchanges that are present here, however, the mechanism both these platforms use are same and the entities and specifications used are different.
  2. The people who are new at this preferably choose to trade stocks that are related to cryptocurrency on the stock exchange market. There is a trust known as GBTC which has Bitcoins and its shares are sold by this trust eliminating the necessity to trade the Bitcoins directly. The main stock exchange for Bitcoins is GBTC which was established in the year 2018, however, one must know that the shares of GBTC trust are more expensive than the Bitcoins. And another difference the regular stock market and cryptocurrency exchange have is that cryptocurrency trading takes place 24 hours and the market is open for 24 hours whereas the regular stock market is not open 24 hours.
  3. Coinbase is the best and the easiest place where you can buy or sell or store the cryptocurrency. Currencies like Bitcoins, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin cash can only be stored, that is sold on Coinbase. If you want to trade this you will require an exchange that Coinbase can offer such as
  • GDAX
  • Bittrex
  • Binance
  • Kraken
  1. In the year 2018, the market of cryptocurrency has been insanely unpredictable. No matter whether you trade Bitcoins or any other type of coins or make use of GBTC trust just within a fraction of seconds you can either make a fortune out of it or lose everything the next second. One can mitigate such risks by hedging, making sure that you don’t ‘go-long’ on the funds that are investible.

Recorded live at Thirsty Meeples – Oxford’s utterly wonderful board game cafe – as part of their Week of Wonder that celebrated the games of DoW, we discuss how Matthew got into designing, where Relic Runners originally came from and what he loves about gaming.

Episode 101 – Save Crash Games!

Hey folks – here’s a new episode of the podcast; a Tony-less episode as this one was kind of put together at the last moment. This time around, Michael is joined by Patrick Nickell from Crash Games – genuinely one of the best people in the world of games. 2016 was something of a rollercoaster for Patrick, mentally and financially, and we talk about what’s been going on with him and his company.

Please note that this interview is pretty emotional and raw. There’s some heavy discussion about depression and suicide, but that doesn’t mean everything is dark. There is plenty of positivity in our discussion, plenty of passion and Good Stuff – I just want you, the listeners, to know what you’re going into before you hit play.

You can get the podcast over on iTunes, of course, or you can grab it directly from this link right here.

As ever, thank you for listening. And once you’re done with this episode, if you go and help Patrick and Crash Games, you won’t know how much I appreciate it.

We mention at the end that there are several helplines for people to call if you’re thinking of suicide or harming yourself, and as promised, here are some numbers. Most countries have some variant of these, and it’d be near impossible to list them all, but these are for places where the majority of Little Metal Dog Show listeners subscribe from. Metrics are useful 😉

US: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – 1-800-273-8255

United Kingdom: CALM – 0800-585858

United Kingdom: Samaritans – 08457 90 90 90

Ireland: Samaritans – 1850 60 90 90

Australia: Lifeline – 13 11 14

France: SOS Amitie – 01 40 09 15 22

Germany: TelefonSeelsorge – 0800 111 0 111

Remember – someone is always ready to help.

Episode 100! Enter The Dark Carnival…

Blimey. Somehow we managed to reach one hundred episodes which, we suppose, is something of an achievement in itself. Thank you to everyone who listens, whether you’ve been around since the very first show or are new to the team. You’re all rather special.

There are a lot of things that a trader is expected to know about the trading market. By this, we do not mean just mean the basic understanding or the read-out about the trading market but by this, we are trying to emphasize on the point that the traders will have to have a complete reading and understanding of the market on a daily basis. Now it is a known fact to all of us that this is a market that is subject to constant changes and modifications and there is something always happening here. Now like the everyday news channels and the newspapers which we have made a compulsory one in our routine life and have decided and taken up to spend some time on, even the news on trading needs to be given attention to.

Knowledge gaining should happen every day

Nobody can master the field or skill of trading overnight for it is something that cannot happen this way or in simple terms, it is impossible. Every trader will have to spend at least a decent amount of time here to know each and every small and simple thing about how the field operates, how trades happen on Quantum  code etc and when a person goes step by step in doing this, he is definite to take a longer time, but remember when you decide to do it this way steadily, you are sure to understand and succeed in trading.

Now, this is possible only when the traders decide to spend some time for this market on a daily basis. As said above nobody can learn or understand this complex field in a single day and every bit of information or news that a person gets to hear or collect on a daily basis will have a connection with the news or market changes that had happened the previous day or is going to happen the next day. So a complete and wholesome understanding of this market and the art of trading happens only when a person tries to do this meticulously and sincerely.

Trading skills

There is absolutely no need for a person to go for any special training when comes to learning about trading and the tricks in doing this successfully for, in reality, there is nothing that the traders will have to spend time on. It is all about the precious time that he invests in getting his brains on the various options and selections that he will have to make in the initial few steps. And it is also about the smartness with which he makes all his moves.

This episode sees Michael speaking with the team from Psychopathic Records – home to the legendary hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse. Designers Robert Bruce and Louis Simpson and artist Tom Wood have collaborated to create a truly entertaining game, accessible even for those who haven’t heard of any of the bands on the label, and we talk about the design process, the game itself, and the pleasures and pitfalls of having a rabid target audience.

Michael and Tony also talk about licensing in gaming, covering Tony’s adventures with a small Welsh train, and just how awful a Trainspotting game could be…

The episode is up on iTunes now (of course) but if you’d like to grab it directly, you can do so – just right click and save this here link:

Again, thank you so much for listening. I’m still amazed to this day that anyone does so, but each one of you is a splendid person for taking time out of your day to hear me (and now Tony) jabber away. It means more than you’ll probably ever know.

Portal Games live at Essen 2016!

Just a quick post to let you know that the first of our interviews from the show floor at Essen Spiel is now live – and why not start it in style with one of the biggest names in gaming, Poland’s own Portal Games?

I sit down with Marcin to discuss their new releases at the show, including the European unveiling of Cry Havoc, the latest expansion for Imperial Settlers – Aztecs – and the beautiful second edition of Robinson Crusoe. Check out the video below!

Is the basic rule of crypto to buy low and sell high? This need not be necessary. Market fluctuations and changes are unpredictable and nobody could have an influence on this for it is the market and the minute- by- minute changes in the economic and fiscal structure of a country that stands responsible for these. So though the market advice to buy low and sell high, it is certainly difficult to follow this rule for it is impossible. Another reason for this to be a tough thing to follow is the high volatility of the market and also the sudden and immediate fluctuations in the market.

Factors that affect the crypto market

There are a lot of trading applications and software in the market like the HB Swiss and much more reliable and trusted trading platforms. And as all of us know trading becomes productive and profitable when only a trader gets to associate himself with one of those in the market. Now once this is done, he needs to understand and learn all about the market, the trading platform and the trading field for adding value and worth to his investments made here. Now, this also demands him to understand the major factors that would make the market a little fidgety. Some of them are described below for better and enhanced understanding of the market.

  • High volatility – as specified above, high volatility is a major problem that affects the market and becomes responsible for the unexpected and unimaginable changes and fluctuations in the market. There are a lot of factors in turn that causes this volatility like the economic instability, unstable fiscal policy etc… Here it is not just the trading field but also the other major markets that have a great impact and influence in the everyday life of the traders.
  • Fraudulent applications – when the numbers of fraudulent trading applications increase in the market, the presence of the assets or the availability of the assets available for trading decreases and at the same time there would also be great changes and fluctuations in the prices of the assets making it difficult for the traders to either buy or sell them at the current prices in the market.

There are many similar factors that affect the trading market and the various components that make trading a great field to play on. Each and every component here is influenced by one or the other factor and when comes to trading all of these need to be understood well.

Monday Rundown launches!

Hey everyone – I’m trying a new segment for The Score over on the Little Metal Television YouTube channel where I’ll be running down some of the best (and occasionally the worst, if warranted) games that I’ve played over the last week. It’s called The Monday Rundown, and I’ll aim to always keep it bite size yet (reasonably) informative. Here’s the first episode – I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

It is important to know yourselves on the trading platform you have decided to trade on. Yes, there are different levels at which each trader gets to enter the trading field and believe it or not, each level has benefits and risks according to the level that that trader can afford to accept or digest. Wondering as to what we are talking about here? Now here is a detail on the same and traders are sure to feel happy and satisfied at the end of this blog when they get to understand that each one of them has a unique and special place in the trading filed and they would definitely be felt important.

Levels or categories of traders

Traders in the trading field are classified based on the level and amount of investment made by them while making their entry. Though we say that the minimum deposit required and demanded from every trader is $250, this is just the minimum that is expected from any trader in any trading platform like the crypto robot 365. Though there is a minimum limit to the initial deposit to be made by each trader, there is actually no maximum limit and it is based on this that the traders get classified. Now let’s take a look at how they get categorized.

  • Usual traders – these traders are the ones who come to this trading field with the sole aim of getting something in return for whatever has been invested by them. And they also belong to the normal category wherein they cannot afford to make more investments and at the same time cannot afford to lose more. So they come into this category wherein this minimum deposit amount is the right investment amount for them and try to make profits from this.
  • Golden traders – these are traders who can make a deposit amount up to $5000. They are a little more important when compared to those belonging to the above classification and they get to have information straight from the market when they decide to get information by making a subscription for the same.
  • Platinum traders – these traders are those who stay back in the trading field to invest up to $50000. Their affordability is so very high and lavish that losing a trade would not make any impact on them, their money or their trading interests. Trading is more so like a fun game for them.
