How do I make my money?

In everyday business my hourly rate is £250 - £750 for various mentoring, presenting or trading consultations. I make my money from the mentoring service on steveruffley.co.nz by being an introducing broker. I take a percentage cut of the spread from the BROKER side. This means you pay nothing for my time or software.

This also means it is in my interest to make you a better more consistent trader as if you dint make any money and carry on trading, I make no money.

This is why I ask for your commitment to open an account with me before we start the tier process. There will also be cut off points where if you do not trade and mirror my effort, I cannot be expected to support your trading progressions.


Intertrader are the broker of choice. I have been the chief market strategist for 6 years and hold all my trading funds there.

Key points.

  • Very competitive spreads

Is mentoring for me?

I have mentored all types of traders. After all trader are just people. There are many people that suffer from the ‘imposter syndrome’ when it comes to trading, that it is simply for people in the city.

Trading is essentially having an opinion, I can help anyone recognise how to use this to trade the markets. What I can never guarantee is that you will make money from this.

What are the risk warnings?

Spread betting and CFD trading are leveraged products and as such carry a high level of risk to your capital which can result in losses greater than your initial deposit. These products may not be suitable for all investors. CFDs are not suitable for pension building and income. Ensure you fully understand all risks involved and seek independent advice if necessary.

Should I open an MT4 account or a Web based platform account?
