Hard To Watch

If you can believe it – I actually never watched A Clockwork Orange. This may sound strange given that I’m obviously a huge movie buff, but the simple reason is that I wanted to keep a handful of the classics of my youth unseen so that I would have something to look forward to when I got a bit older.

So I thought I may as well follow up with a post that focuses on the actual process of how to trade VIXEN as a subscriber and in particular as a retail trader.
