Irving, TX (PRWEB) September 23, 2008 -- NetPicks recently announced the launch of its new DAX futures live signal service. The service enables clients to trade the German DAX futures market alongside a skilled coach in a live trading room.

"The DAX service is an incredible addition to the NetPicks lineup," said Shane Fry, NetPicks DAX Futures live trading analyst. "It gives our clients access to the much sought-after German market and really rounds our investment offerings nicely."

In addition to the DAX Futures service, NetPicks operates Forex and e-Mini Futures Live Signal Services. The trading systems offered by NetPicks are Internet-based and easy to use, Fry said.

"For the launch of our DAX Futures service, we are offering a free two-week trial to let our clients see the service for themselves and decide if DAX is right for their investment needs," Fry said. "We are confident clients will enjoy the service."

Fry said NetPicks' trading systems are comprehensive and designed to meet client needs efficiently and effectively. The DAX Futures system, for example, is responsive to meet the needs of clients in both the European and North American markets.

"Five days a week, we call exact trade setups for customers - exact entries and targets, and manage every trade until completion," he said. "We even do this twice per day - once during the European market hours and once during the U.S. market hours - so no matter where clients are in the world, they can now trade the DAX. We even do all the analysis and show our clients exactly where and why a trade should be taken."

Although new to the NetPicks' lineup of trading systems, DAX Futures has already proven popular and successful.

"Since June 1, 2008, we've called over 552 points of profit live," said Fry. "That's worth over $20,000.00 USD. All clients do is just execute the trades and have their brokerage commission costs. In August, the European session had 68 percent winners, nearly $5,000 per contract with most trading sessions ended positive. The U.S. session, assuming everyday showed 66 percent winners, enjoyed over $8,000 per contract and a profit factor of 4.17."

As it is with NetPicks' Forex trading system, the DAX service is designed to be as easy for clients to use as possible.

"Our goal is to always get in, get out and be done," said Fry. "We try to trade as quickly and intelligently as possible - get our gains and go on with our day."

British Insurance offers redundancy cover to Howard at the Halifax

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008 | Financial Press Release

Thousands of innocent staff will be made redundant if and when the Lloyds TSB and HBOS merger goes through.

Braintree, Essex (PRWEB) September 23, 2008 -- Thousands of innocent staff will be made redundant if and when the Lloyds TSB and HBOS merger goes through.

With 140,000 employees between them, some commentators have suggested as many as 40,000 people may lose their job. This will create financial hardship for many of those being shown the door, while finding new employment is going to prove difficult in a stuttering economy.

British Insurance, the payment protection insurance specialist, is offering a free protection policy to marketing figurehead Howard at the Halifax to help protect him against any possible change to his employment status.

Simon Burgess, managing director at British Insurance, commented: "Halifax has made a virtue of always offering its customers extra. Now it has run aground, what will it offer staff? By offering a policy to Howard we want to give him some valuable protection and show others that PPI insurance is affordable, despite the exorbitant rates charged by HBOS and Lloyds TSB."

If anything, the events of the last few weeks have shown how quickly major organisations can be brought to their knees, said Burgess.

"Halifax CEO Andy Hornby may end up with £2m worth of shares in the new business, but for thousands of employees they will be left without a job. Unfortunately it is too late to take out protection insurance once something happens and people need to have cover in place to make sure they can ride out any sudden and unexpected changes to their personal circumstances."

The irony is that Lloyds TSB and HBOS are among some of the worst offenders when it comes to overcharging customers for PPI. Having spent years profiting from these over priced policies, they are now going to make tens of thousands of staff redundant to boost the profitability of the new organisation.

Burgess commented: "As ever, it's the average employee who will suffer. In the past many people have been put off PPI because of the high premiums charged. However it is so important people realise that they can protect themselves at affordable rates so they can create a financial safety net for themselves and their families."

Cheltenham and Gloucester, the mortgage lender owned by Lloyds TSB, offers MPPI at a rate of £7.70 per £100 of cover, while Halifax charges £5.94. When British Insurance can offer the insurance for £2.40 per £100, Burgess said this clearly showed how badly they were overcharging.

"We need to show consumers that the only people always getting a little bit extra are the high street banks that over charge for their policies," said Burgess.

"PPI needs to be affordable for the average man in the street if it is to offer enough people a viable way of protecting themselves. The best policies are affordable and we need to help people find them."
