Trading in Europe

There are hundreds if not thousands of different financial trading products available in the market. These are traded around the world every day by professionals and amateurs in offices and in homes through the internet.

I left Tesco happy the other day knowing that on my next shop I had a voucher for 4p through their price match promise. Though I wasn't happy, I chuckled to myself thinking about how I would spend it and questioned why Tesco had even gone to the effort?

Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes as they are often known have become an acceptable alternative to cigarette smoking over the past couple of years but they have also become a celebrity style symbol.

Celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruno Mars and Jenny McCarthy have all been seen using them, Katherine Heigl has even been shown on live TV in America with one. 

Musicians also favour e-cigarettes with Katy Perry and Ronnie Wood being photographed recently with them. An e-cigarette also made an appearance in a recent music video from British artist Lily Allen.
