TICN stands for the Investment Club Network. TICN is an organisation that is
devoted to the growth of investment clubs world-wide. The network of members,
benefit by sharing their investment knowledge with each other. TICN teaches proven
investment strategies in their foundation seminar 'Making Money with Careful Planning' (MMCP).
TICN then provides a service to help each member to join a TICN investment club or to help form
a new club within local geographic locations. TICN will then provide members with on-going
support in the following ways:
TICN offers its members a series of Educational Modules delivered either online or offline
that teach time the proven TICN System of success in the Stock Market.
TICN also offers a comprehensive support system as follows:-
TICN Club Co-ordinators - these are a growing band of individuals,
whose very nature is to help others. These individuals have been highly trained in the investment
strategies that TICN teach and support. The most important quality that these people possess is
that they all use the strategies successfully for themselves. Our club co-ordinators are responsible
for supporting a number of investment clubs and in this way, clubs get some highly focused attention. Members gain first level support from a TICN Club Co-ordinator.
- Website - The members are supported using state of the
art technology to deliver TICN webshops. These webshops allow the members to
share knowledge on:
1) Fundamentals -important information relative to companies.
2) Technicals -View charts and discuss trends and indicators.
3) Strategies - Create a monthly income from their shares.
4) Protection - Preserve capital and protect profit.
For four one hour online sessions each member can ask questions from a panel of experienced online
investors using a microphone or text chat facility. Each member can share his or her computer screen
with the group to learn how to apply the valuable knowledge received during the support sessions.
- Seminars - there are a number of different events that
TICN offer, they cater for novice investors to those who wish
to trade for a living, using vehicles like options. For more information why not visit our
Club formation - in the formative days of a club, we will help the club get started by

Friday evening (normally 7:00pm -9:00pm)
Saturday (9:00 am -5:00pm)
Sunday (9:00 am - 4:00pm)
Q5. How does TICN make money?
Firstly through the income from the seminar (this pays for the TICN costs,
salary and support services). Secondly, through TICN becoming a member of each
TICN affiliated club, the monies for support pays for their yearly membership subscription.
Also, the TICN founders and associates are expected to be actively investing and trading in
their own personal accounts to generate income for themselves.
Q6. How do I become a member of a TICN club?
You can contact a TICN Area Director / Club Co-ordinator in your area attend one of our seminars or
join an existing club. If you join an existing club, we require a commitment that you will complete
our Making Money With Careful Planning Weekend within 3 months of joining and TICN require a deposit
of 5% of the seminar cost upon joining a TICN affiliated club.
Q7. How do the clubs operate?
All the clubs will agree to abide by the TICN Constitution which outlines the roles and
responsibilities of each member and officer. Issues such as the frequency of meetings,
monthly contributions, dealing with members who fail to abide by these conditions are
covered. Club members will evaluate and select suitable investments and these will then
be discussed and voted on at the club meetings. Clubs will then decide on the amount of
money to be invested and track the performance of their portfolio.
Four key officers are appointed, Chairperson, Secretary,Treasurer and Trader and vice posts.
Each club will have an appointed Club Co-ordinator to co-ordinate the education and development
of each club member.
Clubs will also agree on a common financial goal, and create a financial plan of action to achieve
it in an agreed time period. This is usually a minimum of 5 years.
Q8. How can I be in a trading club?
Trading clubs are usually offshoots of the main long-term wealth accumulation clubs.
The trading clubs are focused on the short-term volatility of the stock market and are
seeking to make an income by buying and selling shares, or other financial instruments,
such as options. TICN believes that the first step for our members is to become active
in buying shares for the long-term. Then, start short-term trading with a smaller capital
sum. If you only want to be a part of a trading club then please Contact TICN.
Q9. Can I invest on my own?
There is no obligation on your part to join a club. Joining a club does not stop
you from creating your own portfolio. If you were a member of a club, TICN will offer
you a safe and nurturing environment to learn and develop your investing skills.
Q10. What is my financial involvement-how
much money will I need to start?
If you then decide to establish or join an existing club the costs would be as follows:
- The cost of the Making Money With Careful Planning (MMCP) Weekend in your country.
- A once off joining fee(normally between ~ € 20) to cover the initial costs of starting
- A monthly investment of ~ £70/€ 100/$150 per member to fund the purchase of stocks/shares.
- Please click on www.xe.com to convert to your own currency and please click on global map to find your
own country specific details.
- Club Administration-bank charges, brokerage fees and subscription to information and support services
(normally between € 7-9 per month).
- All of these costs are kept to a minimum as the costs are equally divided amongst the club members.
- Each club administers its own finances and retains all monies invested in its portfolio.
Q11. Will I make money or lose money?
The club plans to make money, our track record is excellent and we have received no
complaints from the thousands who have availed of our services. We generally do better than
the market average, some clubs make exceptional returns, but there are no guarantees, as the
markets can be unpredictable at times. We strongly believe that if the investing principles of
the TICN Mind Map system are adhered to, then over a long term (5 years plus period), you will
be profitable, at a level better than the market average.
Q12. Why invest in the US market?
Stock markets are just places to buy and sell shares. The US market is bigger,
cheaper (commissions are lower and bid/ask prices are more favourable), and there
is more readily available information on shares traded in that market which is free
or at lower cost. Also, most of the UK FTSE 100 stocks have a listing on the American
exchanges too. The American NASDAQ will soon be opening a European Exchange in London,
which will deal both European, and US stocks.
Q13. What is the difference between TICN
and other financial seminars?
TICN teaches investment strategies, but what sets TICN apart from others is that
it offers the opportunity to join a nurturing environment (an investment club) and
provides on-going online support to aid the success of each person beyond just a seminar.
Q14. How do I set up filters for covered calls
and rolling stocks?
These are skills that you learn during the various educational
webshops under the while learning about Telechart filters.
Q15. How do I set up the Quality Company
Filter on Value Lines ?
These are available to TICN club members, go to the TICN TOOLS section of the website
via the Value line link as referred to in the MMCP Manual and online Educational webshops
under the heading Value Lines filters.
