Hedge Funds

 
You read and hear a lot about hedge funds. Unfortunately, most of what you hear is negative because it comes from the major media that has an interest in reporting negatives about them because the major media is supported by so-called standard mutual funds and brokerage companies that spend big bucks for advertising. Hedge funds are NOT allowed to advertise. First of all a hedge fund is almost identical to a mutual fund. There have actually been fewer fraud complaints about hedge funds than about mutual funds....
 

Prospering with Mutual Funds: How Anyone can "Afford" an Investment Advisor

 
As the producer and I were working out the logistics of my appearance, she mentioned in passing that "most people can't afford an investment advisor." While that wasn't the time or place for me to discuss this, I realized that many people might have a similar misconception. Had conditions allowed, I would have pointed out the following to her. There are only two ways an individual can invest in mutual funds: Selecting and investing themselves or using outside help. If they use outside help they'll have a couple of choices again: A commissioned salesperson (broker, financial planner or Registered Representative) or a fee-based investment advisor....
 

On Line Stock Trading: Small Cap & Micro Stocks Go Up and Down - How Can You Profit?

 
Success in small cap & micro cap stock trading like with any other business in life comes from being able to see the big picture and from paying attention to the small details. The funny thing about this kind of situation is that you could be just a small distance away from being as successful as he is. We know that day trading small cap stocks with momentum is not the only way to make money in the stock market. But it can be the fastest way when you do it right. We also understand that a lot of people shy away from short term momentum trading and think that only a few traders can profit from it....
 

Social Insecurity

 
Just about everything you have been told about Social Security is an obfuscation. That is a big word for convoluted truth or lie. In a recently published obscure government document by the presidential Social Security commission there are two pages that expose the truth. Neither Democrats nor Republicans want you to read this. Shining the light of truth on the weirdness of politicians seldom makes them happy; however, you owe to yourself to know the truth. When they take out from your paycheck for FICA - that's the SS deduction - the money is sent to the Social Security Trust Fund....
 

Analyzing Growth Stocks: An Important Focus For Any Investor

 
Analyzing growth stocks is an important focus for any investor. This is especially important, since stocks are an irreplaceable part of any good investment plan, and since unbiased stock research is hard to find. Still, we need to look at the big picture once in a while. Since so much has changed lately, this may be a good time to "take stock". Many have reevaluated their investment strategies. The problem is that many of these reevaluations are moving people away from their goals. As the market has dropped, rather than moving toward buying at the cheaper prices, we've seen people move away from stocks, a strategy which has little long-term benefit....
 

Mousetrap

 
The spring-loaded rat catcher is the ultimate low-tech device invented more than 100 years ago and remains the best demouser in the world. It is so simple anyone can master it and best of all you can keep on using it year in and year out. It always works. Now I want to show you a killer method for earning 30% to 50% annually on your investments that is just as easy as the good old mousetrap. You will only be invested in the market when it is going up and you will buy only no-load mutual funds that are making more return than any of the other 8,500 funds available in the U....
 

Fake Money

 
Reach in your pocket and take out that big roll of bills. Depending on how many of them you have you feel pretty good. BUT did you know they are not worth the paper they are printed on? Huh? Let me explain. Yes, those bills are legal tender because those guys in Washington passed a law stating they must be accepted for payment. They are Federal Reserve Notes and it states right on the bill, "This is legal tender for all debts, public and private". That is OK, but if you go to the U. S....
 

Dont Lose All Your Money

 
That sounds like good advice doesn't it? Don't lose all your money. After all what is an investor without funds in the brokerage account? Hint: BROKE! On the subject of investing, this means getting out of a trade when it goes against you. Don't lose all your money. This is the MOST important thing any investor can do. Cut your losses before you're broke. It's easy to do, but some investors find it hard to implement. Don't become so attached to your buying decision that you ignore this advice. Set a stop loss figure on every stock or investment you have....
 

Some Good News for A Change

 
Before we get into all the good news out there, let us first take a look at what the term "news" really means. By definition, the term "news" means the exception to the norm. If it is expected to happen then it is not news. If it differs from the norm, then it is news. Here is a good example - if on a given day all planes landed safely at JFK International Airport in New York, is this news? Nope. If one of those planes crash, is this news? Yep. See what I mean. Take into account also that media needs to sell itself whether through subscriptions or by advertisements and you end up hearing a lot of bad news....
 

Getting Even

 
I know there are a lot of you out there who would like to "get even" with the stock market. Many are on the diet of "I hope, I hope". As a professional trader I can tell you that diet will make you very sick. If you play any game of chance like poker you know you are not going to win every hand. In fact you are going to lose more hands than you win, but at the end of the evening you can still come out ahead if you know how and when to bet and when to fold because it is not always in the cards that you have been dealt....
 

Online Investing & Online Stock & Share Trading: Difficulty in Taking Stop Losses in the Market

 
This is an extract of an article which was first printed in Daryl Guppy's Newsletter Tutorials in Applied Technical Analysis on 26 March 2005 and is reprinted here with his permission A stop loss is a predetermined exit point. When a trade is first planned, the stop loss is designed to protect the trader's capital. The exact price of the stop loss is the result of a relationship between the maximum level of risk as determined by the 2% rule, the logical support levels on the chart, and the amount of capital the trader wants to allocate to the trade....
