Understanding stocks can be difficult. I have spent so much time researching investment tips. I have tried to learn how to invest money to make it grow. I have tried day trading, month trading, yearly trading and no trading. LOL Sometimes I have found that “no trading” is the best form of investments.
Why, well, it’s simple a lot of times I made mistakes by selling to soon, buying too late etc.
It’s crazy right? A friend approaches you and says, “Hey, have you heard about this great stock?” Chances are they heard about from someone else as well. When I hear this kind of thing it really makes me wonder whether I should trust it, and who might be at the beginning of this “operator” game. Just in case you aren’t familiar with the game “operator,” it is basically when you take a string of people and you tell them on thing on one end and see what the result is on the other. For example, if you start with one person, whisper in their ear and say pink elephants don’t eat yellow bananas, monkeys do.
You are liable to get a completely different story at the other end of a line of people. Ok enough of the digression.
Back to stocks, can you really pick winners? Can you figure out how to stay away from the losers? Well, I think you can to some degree and that is what this site is about.
I will discuss the greatest things related to stocks and investing and the worst things related to it. See my disclaimer page because I am not a stock broker, financial guy. Heck, I am not sure I am qualified to tell you anything. What I can tell you is that I have lost money in the stock market and made a lot of money in it too. Right now my wins well outweigh my losses.
It doesn’t really matter though, because even if all I had were losses, you would most likely still be able to benefit from this blog because you might distinguish a few things NOT to do.
Thomas Edison didn’t fail 10,000 times to make a light bulb, he simply found 10,000 ways that didn’t work. It really wasn’t until he realized that he had to manage combustion that he was able to figure out the secret to how to create the incandescent bulb. He realized that his biggest problem was that every time he ignited the bulb it popped because of combustion.
So, he thought about it….what does combustion need in order to happen? Oxygen. Once he created a vacuum inside of the bulb and was able to remove all of the oxygen, the modern light bulb was born.
That’s why they make a popping sound when they break. It’s the vacuum. Call me Sherlock. I just love that story and thought I would share it with you.
Ok, so stay tuned and click around on this site to learn from the mistakes I have made. I wish you the best of luck. I know that if you put your thinking cap on and go at it with eyes wide open, you probably can do quite well for yourself.
