Emotional Trading

The single most expensive stock market trades are those made with emotions, but, of course, you are not an emotional trader are you?

Eternal Sunshine

There is a current movie entitled ?Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?. It is about a man who has had a painful love affair and will do anything to rid his mind of those pain thoughts of a former love. He sees an advertisement that offers just such a service. It seems his former lover has the exact thoughts and she goes through the same treatment. Guess what? They meet again, do not recognize each other, and fall in love again.

Keep Your Profits

It looks like we have now entered a new bull phase in the stock market and I have a question for you. Will you give back the profits that you make this time as you did in 2000? You sure don?t want to, but you are not going to get any help from your broker.

Inverted Interest Rates

Inverted interest rates? What?s that? Who cares? Even if you don?t understand what Mr. Greenspan is saying (and almost nobody does) it is important to you because it could mean you might lose you job next year or have to cut back on some of the things you want to acquire.

Investment Clubs

Because you don't feel too sure about which stock or mutual fund to buy you decide to become a member of an investment club. Each of the members contribute a certain amount of money each month and then meet to decide what to buy or sell.

It Cant Be Done

Wouldn?t it be nice if you were only in the stock market when it was going up and have everything transferred to cash while it is going down? It is called ?market timing? and your broker or financial planner will tell you ?it can?t be done?. What that person just told you is he doesn?t know how to do it. He doesn?t know his job.

Stock Market Insanity

Let?s first define insanity. It is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. And that is what most investors do and they can?t understand why they are not able to make money in the stock market.

Its A Bull, Its A Bear, Its Suptertrader!

The higher the market goes the more confusing are the "experts". In the September 14 issue of Investor's Business Daily newspaper we find the great prognosticators such as:


Intervention. Now don't let that big word scare you. The talking heads on TV have been discussing it all week because the major banks of the world are going to "prop up" the Euro.

Is Your Garage Full Of Junk?

I have a 2-car garage. There are nice shelves on one side and a good practical workbench with a vice on the other side. Plenty of room for 2 cars yet I have to be careful when I pull in so I won't run over stuff stacked on each side. Sound familiar?

Its A Duck

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck it must be a duck.

Its Better

Question: How does it get better when it gets worse?

Market Globalization

Just 30 years ago the stock market was a shadow of what it is today. There were many fewer shareholders and the daily volume was a fraction of what it is at present. No one thought you would every be able to trade a billion or more shares in one day. Of course that was in the old days when they had tickers and the word digital was something you did with your fingers.

Market Timing

Every broker and financial planner will tell you that you cannot time the stock market. I saw John Bogle, the great seer of Vanguard, on CNBC saying it can?t be done. Of course, it is easy to understand why he and every other mutual fund manager would say that as they would have a problem managing huge inflows and outflows of money and he was buying and holding during the 18-year bull from 1982 to 2000.

Dont Spend Another Dollar on Business Opportunities Until You Read This

With an insecure job market, overworked employees, insufficient retirement savings and parents wanting the option to stay home with their kids, it is not surprising that many individuals are taking the leap into online business opportunities.
