Top Tiql Tips: 4th to 8th Dec

Like Meghan we’re excited

We’re sharing this free guide to the markets and dates to watch this week to help you to earn more with TIQL. Economic news and announcements cause financial markets to move a lot, and may provide some opportunities to trade.

Remember, you can earn some extra cash by inviting people to trade with TIQL. The very first time someone you invite makes a deposit of $5 of more, you will receive $1. Whoever you invite also gets $1 USD to trade with; you can’t get better than that! You can keep earning as we pay you a percentage every time your supporters trade with TIQL. Get all the details here.

USD: the week ahead
The big ticket calendar event is the ever volatile Non-Farm Employment Change (Friday 8th Dec 1.30pm GMT), which is forecast to slow down by over a fifth this month growing by only 200k. As the Reserve Bank has set itself a target of zero unemployment, any reduction is likely to be taken badly.

Despite last month’s surprise employment drop, the dollar remained bullish to the end of that trading week. This time we have the recent tax bill, which continues to boost US markets at the start of this week. Both signs suggest there is a lot of support for the dollar available.

Things that may wobble USD markets this week include the political powder kegs of North Korea, Trump’s twitter feed, and Crude Oil Inventories (Wednesday 6th Dec 3.30pm GMT).

AUD: which way is the economy heading?
The antipodean currency is often buffeted by changes in USD, CNY and other major trading partners making it a fun one to trade. This week offers some homegrown events that could get the markets excited.

There is a chance the Current Account will improve by nearly 1 billion USD (Tuesday 5th 12.30am GMT), which would start the week well. Retail Sales (Tuesday 5th 12.30am GMT) are also forecast to improve (0.0% to 0.3% growth), while the big news is the Rate Statement (3.30am GMT Tuesday 5th). In October, this was kept at a record low of 1.5% and there are mixed views on what will happen this week though most suspect it will stay the same. The argument is that low rates are stimulating the economy.

Later in the week, GDP is forecast to drop by 0.1% to 0.7% (Wednesday 6th 12.30am GMT) and the Trade Balance looks set to shrink by around 0.3 billion or so (Thursday 7th 12.30am GMT). With mutterings about a recession or even depression in pundit circles, there is talk of a banking bubble built on a property bubble on a mining bubble on a commodities bubble all fuelled by a Chinese bubble. Is the Aussie economy about to go pop?

BTC: boom or bubble?
You’d have to be living under a rock to have missed the meteoric rise and fall of Bitcoin over the last few days. Hitting an incredible $11,000 peak on Wednesday 29th before falling back, the currency is climbing again (Monday 4th December) with no-one sure where it will go next. Debate has raged about the nature of the movement with many warning against investment, among them the Bank of France’s Governor saying “Bitcoin is a speculative asset and people who invest in it do so at their own risk”.

There are clearly fortunes to be made (and lost) in the gold rush for the cryptocurrency, which has no tangible asset form. With a global value outpacing that of some international banks, Bitcoin even outstrips some economies, such as New Zealand.

For market speculation with a thrill, and a sizeable risk, there is little to beat Bitcoin trading this week. US regulators have recently given the green light to futures trading on the asset adding further legitimacy to the flag-bearer of cryptocurrencies. However you feel about it compared to national currencies or commodities, this is a market worth exploring and open seven days a week.

Here are the main news events to look out for this week:​

Some Markets to Watch…

BTCUSD: bitcoin continues its drive higher. We touched $11,800 over a volatile weekend of trading. $9000 and $8000 would be key areas to watch on any retraces which could be fast and deep on this market.

Crude Oil: As long as this market trades over the $55 with support from the 200 SMA and previous chart structure, it looks like this market might try and run the stops at the recent highs. There may be supply higher up given the price structure from the sell off in 2015. The bears will likely be watching the $58 and $60 levels. Any daily closes below $55 and the bears may try for a deeper move down to next potential demand zone at $52/$53.

EURUSD: While supported above 1.17, this may grind higher. We have a recent failed head and shoulders pattern which may still have some traders stuck short looking to get out.

GBPUSD: Cable has tested the old halfway back and continues to grind higher. The 61.8 is near 1.3860, which was a previous demand zone that was quickly broken through on Brexit news. The market may have some unfinished business at that price point. For now, above 1.32, this looks like it might continue to grinder higher. Any daily breaks below this level and the 200 SMA might beckon this market.

Gold: The shiny metal continues to move in the range. We have the 200 SMA and previous demand providing some support; for now, the technical picture has it consolidating and supported above the 1260.

USDCAD: The loonie has made a double top of sorts and has found some support at the previous supply zone (now acting as support) at 1.2650. For now, we are in a consolidation zone, any breaks down and the next major support zone might be 1.24.

Whichever way you think these markets are going to go, you can trade these and other markets from as little as 1 cent with TIQL.

Markets can really move during news events; all TIQL trades come with guaranteed stops to always protect you from losing more than you have invested in a trade.

Bitcoin ❤ TIQL (Trade nearly anything with Bitcoin!)

✔ You’re holding bitcoin but you’ve got a hot tip in the financial markets and don’t want to waste time and money converting to fiat?

✔ You want to maximise your potential returns but completely protect the downside?

✔ You want to get in and out of trades for free, without even paying the spread?


TIQL has partnered with Bitcoin experts SatoshiBones to bring you the world’s first zero-fee* pure Bitcoin financial trading platform: ZeroPip.

It’s incredibly easy to get started; just go to and enter your public Bitcoin wallet address (this is where your winnings will get sent back to!). This is early access, so expect a few changes in the coming weeks.

Use your public bitcoin address to sign up to the new platform

Then it’s optional but we recommend creating a username and password so that you can easily log in again at any time.

Choose a username and password for your account

Next send some bitcoin to the unique address displayed in your dashboard. Unfortunately the bitcoin network has been slow recently so it might take a while, but once the funds are confirmed you’re ready to trade!

To access Zeropip you need to use the hidden link on the top left corner. (We know it’s not clear — the app is deliberately being kept a bit of a secret right now!)

Deposit and receive funds in minutes; then start trading the markets with your bitcoin

ZeroPip is 100% Bitcoin — bitcoin in, bitcoin out —  but it displays in “Chips”. 1 Chip is 1/100,000th of a bitcoin, or about 2 US cents right now. We think it’s just easier seeing it this way!

96 Chips is 0.00096 bitcoin, worth a bit more than $2.00 right now

Give it a go now and be one of the first in the world to discover ultra-low-cost trading with ZeroPip!

* ZERO-FEE: In Zeropip it’s free to start trading and free to exit a trade after a short time. Also our “spreads”, the extra you have to pay between the buy price and the sell price, are the smallest in the world: they are all zero. That’s why it’s called Zero Pip!


New Year: $5. Cash. Free!

Want some fun to brighten the end of a dismal year and start a new one with a spring in your step? How about our best ever offer!

If one of your Supporters makes their first deposit between now and Jan 2nd, then

  • You will get 10% of the amount they deposit, as a bonus
  • They will get $5 extra, for free

That’s it! No catches, no 50x trade through or any of the tricks our competitors play. Just a simple cash bonus for you and another one for your Supporter.

We’ll also pay you up to 2% of what they trade.

TIQL. Serious Fun!


You Get Paid When They Trade

We’re so excited to share this news — we’re going to pay you when your supporters trade!

Passive Income – You Always Win

From now on, every time one of your supporters makes a trade, you’ll receive cash from us. It’s that simple: no matter whether your supporter makes loads of money or hits their free guaranteed stop, you’ll receive up to 2% of the amount they won or lost.

Not only that, but if someone you invited earns money this way, you’ll get 10% too – with no limits!

$20 Per Month

We crunched the numbers to figure out how much you can earn this way. According to our best estimates you’ll earn about $4 for each of your active traders. If you can get a popular post on a popular site like Reddit, Quora or an FX or Trading blog you can certainly earn $20+ a month at no ongoing effort.

The Rules

  1. This offer only applies to US Dollar denominated trades.
  2. The amount you receive depends on how recently the supporter joined. The first week you’ll get 2%, the second week you’ll get 1.5%, etc. But you always get something – from week five onwards you’ll earn 0.25% on each trade, not zero!
  3. We pay you for each trade as it completes, as a percentage of their net profit or loss including any fees. Of course, usually there are no fees, because it’s TIQL!
  4. We round your payment to the nearest penny so on average it’s very fair. Sometimes you’ll earn a bit more than you should, and sometimes a bit less. It is possible to earn nothing.
  5. The most you can earn on one trade is $1.


  1. Your friend joins TIQL and puts on a $2.50 trade at 20:1. They’re right! They’ll win $50 and you receive 2% of $50 = $1. AWESOME!
  2. Your friend then puts on another $1.00 trade at 20:1. They’re wrong. They’ll lose $1 but you still receive 2% of $1 = $0.02. Free money!
  3. Someone you invited earns $0.96 from their supporter. You’ll get $0.10 as well!

Final Notes / Q&A

  • You need a TIQL account to receive the money — because that’s a legal requirement! (If it was our choice, we’d pay everyone…).
  • Be careful not make any false promises to people joining TIQL! There’s really no need anyway, since TIQL is probably the world’s best way to get trading.
  • This will replace the current system of being receiving TQ$3 when your supporter deposits US$10 or more.
  • We will release an updated app on or before Sunday 16th October 10pm BST and the new rules will take effect immediately after the release.
  • The release will also update the TIQL Terms & Conditions. In case of doubt, that document will define the correct rules and this post is just for advice.
  • For people with Spark Profit supporters, the date of joining refers to the earlier of the two dates when they joined either Spark Profit or TIQL.
  • These rules apply until further notice but may have to change in the future.

Press Release: Nous Global Markets launches TIQL®, a revolution in personal trading

“The safe, simple way for the world to trade”

Over 500 trades possible from a $5 deposit, all losses strictly limited and returns of up to 20✕

London-based Fintech firm Nous Global Markets today announced the release of TIQL®, a completely new category of financial-market trading app available on PC, Android and iOS. TIQL (pronounced “tickle”) is designed to be the world’s safest way to trade, thanks to a unique set of consumer-friendly features unavailable before today. The firm also offers a “Uniquely Good Deal” guarantee to highlight TIQL®’s benefits and unique new approach to trading.

Nous® says that it built the app following the success of an earlier free-to-play virtual trading app it released in 2014. After amassing 400,000 players from over 200 countries, Nous® discovered that many of them were unable to exercise their new-found skills and passion on the real markets. Existing brokers and other service providers did not cater to the needs of people in developing countries, whom Nous® describes as the “emerging global middle class”.

After considerable R&D, in April this year TIQL® was awarded an OGRA licence to operate its unique new platform by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission, and has since been testing its services, culminating in today’s official release. Some of the consumer-friendly features that, in combination, are unique to TIQL® are:

  • Open an account with as little as $5
  • Invest from as little as $0.01 (1 cent) on each trade
  • Free downside protection: impossible to lose more than was invested in a trade
  • Receive up to 20x returns for correct predictions

There are several additional benefits that further differentiate the platform, such as no fees when starting a trade, no bid-offer spreads to reduce returns, and a unique visual interface. More details can be found at

TIQL has received a wealth of positive feedback during the Beta phase:

“This is awesome it feels great to be on ‘TIQL’ , thanks for giving such a great platform…”

“So much adrenalin for 1$”

“TIQL is best.. It’s a one of a kind platform. […] I can limit my losses but can maximize my winning stake :)”

Many more quotes are available on request.

In the few months of invitation-only testing since obtaining its licence, TIQL® has already seen early customers wager nearly US $300,000. These customers come from countries around the world, but the EU and the US are currently excluded pending additional licences that Nous hopes to obtain over the next year. Customers are able to deposit using PayPal, Skrill or Neteller, with more options planned.

Nous is planning further expansion and is raising funds to accelerate TIQL’s impressive growth.

Founder & CEO, Justin Short, says

“After 14 years designing automated trading strategies for the world’s biggest investment banks, I saw an opportunity to reach an audience that had been ignored by the markets. Nous’ goal with the release of TIQL® is to provide a trusted, fair way for people to discover and capitalize on their talents – and have fun doing it!”
