Are Goldline IntelliTrend?

The IntelliTrend 250 Trading System

Intellitrend250 is a share analysis software system originally developed by Digital Data Systems PLC for high net worth individuals and professional traders, but now the software has been developed even further to make it easily accessible to anyone with a PC.

This system automatically downloads the data required and analyses the days market movements alerting you to any areas of interest. This is all summarised in concise instructions, which show you how to buy and sell, then set the orders via the internet as a spread bet ready to be triggered the following day.

The impression I get from the blurb about this product is: "why not risk a 'throw-away' £4995 for the possibility of fat returns (£30,000+ per year!!) a few years down the road - its easy and only takes a few moments each evening, so why not go for it?"

I can see that this would be attractive to someone who has not formulated their own investment strategy, and for those who would like a guided approach to spread-betting.

However, the purchase price of £5k seems high, even with a £500 free deposit in your spread-betting account - after all, you have already supplied that £500, even if we make the true purchase price at £4500! I really think this is way over-priced should be a subscription based service.

It seems, also that Intellitrend are related to Goldline. Intellitrend are promoting Dealing Desk and I recall attending a Goldline system demonstration some months ago. The man who showed me the demonstration used dealing desk in the demonstration... The cost at £4,995 definitely reminds of Goldline.

Other observations on the posted IntelliTrend results:
  1. The size of the bet moves up with the size of the pot, so trading scales with previous success;
  2. Its a bit of a roller-coaster - I seem to remember that the size of the pot went to £14k, and then, through a series of subsequent losing trades, the pot went to £7k. If those sorts of losses are going to make you cry, then this is not for you. Although with only £20 invested, I guess you wouldn't get too upset.
  3. They are trading on a huge £/pt, so the actual % shifts in the stock aren't that great. This would make the system extremely vulnerable to slippage. Also, their costs appear to be the spreadbet cost, and don't factor in extra market spread which would for a substantial proportion of the overall gain they quote.
  4. On occasions, they've got the direction of the move correct, but the cost of the spread-bet exceeded the profit generated from the small share price move, so although they got it right, you still took a loss.
  5. We haven't seen how it performs in a falling market - spread-betting allows us to profit from down-bets in such a scenario, but so far we don't have any results in anything other than a rising market.
  6. On the telephone, they do sound earnest, professional and convincing. They do sound like good guys.

To this I thought I'd ask a couple of leading questions. Most impressive could you please advise the margin requirements you require to sustain these size of bets totalling £210 per point and what spread each trade has to give me an honest indication


Thanks for your enquiry, answers to your questions:

A typical member risks 4% of the available funds on any one trade. For a 20K fund, they would be risking £800, for £2000 (most new members start with 2000 to 5000) it would be £80. The margin requirements vary, but on average equate to a similar amount as the initial amount risked. i.e. risking 4% on a trade, normally the spread betting company would like to see a further 4% in the account. No one has had to credit their account with any more money than the original fund to cover the margin, i.e. the fund will be sufficient to cover the trade and margin requirements. The low margin requirements are fairly typical for spread betting companies - unlike CFDs for example.

If you have any further questions or require any clarification, please ring, as you would expect we are very experienced in spread betting.
