This is of course something you can do as an individual or as a company, depending on which is better for you in terms of expenses.
I'm doing it as an individual, currently owning shares from 11 different companies with the main idea of getting a decent passive income from their dividends.

Anyone else interested in this? Feel free to share your strategies, companies etc.

Investing is a great way to make your money go to work for you. It is something that many people should explore and the younger you are, the better position you are in to make a decent little nest egg for yourself for your golden years. It takes a lot of research, patience and trial and error to figure out what stocks and other investment vehicles will net you the greatest return. The more volatile the investment vehicle, the greater chance for a good return...but the greater the risk for loss.

When you participate in the stock market you need to know that apart from researching about the best companies to invest in, your financial objectives, knowing the risks surrounding your investments and its technicalities, stock market is also about the psychology of the stakeholders. When I decided to participate, I have dedicated some time to read business news in the morning and continuously learning about the technical analysis to improve my understanding about the stock market.The only strategy that I have known so far is the cost averaging strategy.

I do it solo in my spare time, because it's a hobby of mine. I'll take 10% of my monthly earnings and invest it in stocks. Only invest what you're willing to lose. Don't listen to anyone but your guy, and do your own research. If you're new to investing as a whole, I'd recommend trying out Forex investing first.

Yep, stocks are good investments especially if you know what you're doing. Research and updates about the companies and the stock market as a whole is of course vital. And yes, diversification is key.

Those who don't have sufficient time to do some much needed research could just settle for mutual funds or other safer instruments.

The stock market scares me, especially after its big crash a few years ago. My problem is that I don't understand it and haven't been good at math/making predictions. It's just too risky for my liking.

I've never researched the stock market much, but I do have quite a bit of experience in forex trading. As a beginner, I would highly recommend against scalping (opening and closing a trade within a few minutes), I don't think this method of trading is as prominent in stocks as it is forex though. Also keep leverage to a minimum, that's one of many things that could easily burn your money.

Unfortunately that's all the advice I can give on stocks, my expertise is forex!

I've always been interested in stock trading though, what's everyone's take on penny stocks?

Opening and closing positions within minutes rarely exists on the stock market. A lot of trades are done in a slightly longer time scale, within a an hour or two. These are mainly robots which try to predict future movements by algorithms but normal people do this too. I however recommend against it, it's very risky.

As for penny stocks... in my opinion it's not worth it. You are investing in small companies that probably aren't even profitable. You could strike gold but the chances of doing that are quite small.

I guess if you really know your way around stock markets then it's good to invest on it. But if it's your first time, I won't hold my breath on it. It takes a while to study the rates and the flow of money in stocks. It's like gambling if you don't know the business inside it because all you would do is guess. it's also best to have a financial adviser to give you tips before you place your money on just about any stock.

I have made some investments in the stock market but only stocks that I know are not a risk. I will probably invest some more money if I have to time to manage it properly. I don't link to have my money sitting somewhere and then after a few months check up on it, I want it to be active and I want to see the fluctuations everyday so see what the trend of the stock is.

Obviously a lot of research is required in order to understand exactly how the company works, where their profits and expenses come from etc. Then you have to make your own assumptions on how they will do in the future. There is always a risk, but gambling is the wrong word for it.

I would highly recommend not having a financial advisor when it comes to the stock market. For one, if they are really that good at the stock market then they will be lying on a beach on a tropical island with a laptop, not sitting in a bank. They also work for the bank and will be trying to sell you the banks own products. I talk to mine about once a year but never anything stock related, I just need her to recommend me different savings accounts according to my situation.

The stock market and investing in stocks is a pretty good idea specially when you have knowledge in manipulating the data of when to buy stocks and what stocks are the most stable. Even in your local area, you could actually make profit by just buying and selling stocks. A lot of companies also make income through the stock market like most insurance companies. It is really a great deal to invest some money into stocks.

I personally prefer Forex. Comparing Forex to stocks the main differences are volatility (higher in Forex, more risk more reward), Leverage is far greater in Forex (a double edged sword!) and trading hours. I prefer Forex because I think it is harder to manipulate than stock prices (even though its very dangerous as well).

Delusional, you are more like a day trader. You like to take action and take advantage of minute trends in the market, rather than a buy and hold investor who likes to try and ride out the bumps in the market. Day traders make smaller profits more often (when they get it right) and tend to believe that doing a bunch of transactions over time will net a greater profit and minimize losses. Many people have done this successfully, but can be tricky. Good luck

When you say FOREX, are you referring to the BINARY OPTIONS? I thought it is more like a gambling than investment, especially when you are trading based on time. There is also a bigger risk in FOREX than stocks I think, because either you win a certain percentage of the money you put in, or you LOSE everything!

Stock market is simply buying shares of a company making you a part-owner (or investor) of the said company. You earn passive income through dividends and of course through the ever changing value of the stock shares depending on when you are going to sell it.

In Forex, it doesn't require you to do much of the fundamental or technical analysis, but rather just guess whether the currency is going to high or low.

Certainly, I would be willing to try FOREX, just to know how it really works, but I will remain and continue to invest through the stock market.

This is something that I've never done, but I've always been interested in it. I've always wondered if "real people" (not super wealthy ones!) ever actually make money from owning stocks. I'm sure some do, but I'm just too scared to lose my little bit of money, so I never invest.

Yeah I agree with you, scalping is definitely dangerous for anyone. As for the penny stocks, I wasn't quite sure how many companies became profitable enough to make it worth while so thanks for clarifying that.

I think the safest method for someone investing in the markets would be index funds like the NASDAQ, FTSE, DOW, NIKKEI etc.

I'm not too familiar with all the terminology so not quite sure what you mean by binary options. Forex is currency trading and two currencies are involved in each trade, for example you buy Yen in exchange for Dollar (in which case you are short USD/JPY).

There is definitely a lot of fundamental, technical and sentimental analysis involved in forex so I wouldn't consider it gambling. However over here in the UK your profits can be tax free if you trade under a spread betting broker as the government consider it gambling!

I prefer Forex because I think it is harder to manipulate than stock prices (even though its very dangerous as well).

I wouldn't say that the volatility itself is higher in Forex. Changes (percentage wise) are rarely as large as with stocks, for example the 52 week range of EUR.USD is 1.2749 - 1.3882. So less than 10%. Most stocks have much more volatility. More risk more reward is true but only because you are using leveraged products, which are also available to most publicly traded stocks.

Yes "real people" do it all the time! It's a common misconseption that the stock market is only for the wealthy. You can get started with pretty much any amount of money as long as you have a broker who does not charge an upkeep fee. However I'd recommend that you have at least $500 to start so the commissions won't hurt so much.

Pretty sure that penny stocks have more or less the same requirements with financial reporting so you can check out if a company you are interested in is profitable or not. But it's obvious that most small companies are high risk, high reward ones, at least compared to the industry giants.

Index Funds are a great idea! I don't know how I didn't mention it! Definitely worth a look for those who aren't too sure of themselves or who don't have the time to research a lot. Now might be a bad time to buy though since despite the not-so-great economy most indexes are at a very high point.

I'm not quite sure if this is true or not, but I read somewhere that big companies can't invest in stocks that are under $3 a share or something like that. If true, would be a great investment if someone could find a penny stock that's hovering around that mark which companies are just waiting to purchase.

I agree that index funds would probably be a bad idea to purchase at the moment, however I still wouldn't sell yet if I did have them in my portfolio. Seems like they always rise year after year.

You have to open up an account at a stock broker. You get software with which you can check out stocks and buy them. If you are new to this my advice is to learn before investing or just invest into Index funds and leave the money for 10+yrs!

Consult your bank and request for some financial advice. Usually, some bank offers investment related services and I am very sure that they could help you with it. If you are lucky, your bank is also operating a stock brokerage facility which will make your life easier (in stock market investing). Good luck to you!

See Dinomarino, that's the scary thing. Our economy simply isn't what it used to be. It's gotten somewhat better in the last year but it's still struggling. Since the stock market is based on the economy, you'd be buying into something that I agree is going to eventually collapse. I wish there was a safe way to make my money work for me without taking such a gamble.

The stock market won't collapse any time soon. It has mini-collapses, so to speak, and these are great opportunities for profits, when stocks lower in price during a mini-collapse. Only invest what you're willing to lose.

Exactly! All the best investors in the world agree in one thing and that is to buy buy buy when the price is low and the market and stocks undervalued! On the other side of the coin, always sell when it is overvalued (the stock market right now is overvalued IMO and the one in 2007/2009 was undervalued)!

Read some books on the topic!

That saying isn't implying that you're gonna lose money, it's saying don't invest money you need for bills, food, etc. If you have extra money I'd recommend learning to invest in the stock market, as it's fun at points and makes good money. Obviously nobody wants to lose money from investing, and it rarely happens once you're experienced in investing.

Everyone who is thinking about investing their money, I suggest you do soem education and reading. For starters I would reccomend One up on Wall Street,Beating the street and Learn to Earn by Peter lynch. It teaches you about the stock market and they way Peter Lynch invested. On top of that read the Intelligent Investor. Those books should give you some fundamental udnerstanding of investing.

Stock market will never collapse, as long as there are profitable business (which there will be). There is always a chance of a mini-collapse as a poster above me has said, but the chances of you having positions open during that time (unless you're a position trader and have many positions open for several years). So personally, I'd say you're pretty safe as far as collapses go, but there are probably people who can give you a better insight on the topic

Yeah, I heard the same thing about that, too. But I believe R. Kiyosaki's position is to NOT totally avoid in investing, especially in commodities. Commodities include things like precious metals (gold, silver), energy (oil, natural gas), or agriculture (food). I think there are more items in that category, but that's all I can think of right now.

Investing has always been an interesting proposition for me, but I've never really had the disposable income to do so. It also seems like a really scary and unreliable thing. Obviously there are ways to do it that have lower risk and that's why so many people do it. I'm not sure that I will feel comfortable ever doing it in a capacity that isn't 'just for fun'. I definitely agree with educating yourself about it. Extensive research is pretty much required.

You have to start somewhere. Make sure that you secure your self first (insurance), enough savings and have a steady source of income before you engage into stock investing. You must also set your goals and decide whether you intend to invest in a short, medium or long term. Of course, you have to research more specially when you start selecting the first company you would want to invest in.

Trading at indices like S&P, NASDAQ and the like is almost equivalent to roulette at the Bellagio. It's all speculative and hardly based on fundamentals. I usually prefer offshore stock markets that have strong fundamentals and are not highly volatile. E.g. Would you believe that the Pakistani stock market (KSE-100) is the world best performing index. The only downside is the ever increasing $-PKR parity but again you can always hedge.

techman1945
02-03-2014, 06:15 PM
Lol Nice point midynamics..All I saw was "the Bellagio" in the post preview on the homepage and I was interested...I love Vegas!!

Anyway, I agree with you. That's why I always trust Kevin O'leary's advice. He says noone should ever invest in a stock that doesn't pay dividends. Otherwise, its all speculation. But if you are able to get a piece of the profits, "some companies pay upwards of 5% Dividends", then It makes the process of investing and compounding interest all the more enriching!!

02-03-2014, 06:55 PM
Definitely. My prime interest are dividends. Capital gains from stock appreciation just do for toppings. KSE-100 is regular dividends.

Stock market is sure a good way to invest your money on, but only if you know how to function and which stocks you would think you can make money from. My uncle used to invest on stock market, which he hardly made any money because he didn't understand how the stock market worked, plus he didn't pick the right stocks to begin in the first place. I think if you know much about making your investment to the stock market, it's a good way to do so but you have to do a lot of studies and researches, as well as planning and make sure you know each individual stock before you make the bet.

I like that you are advising young people to invest their money. But if it's about the stock market, you should also remind them that it's a gamble. Not all stocks end up as cash-able profits. Sometimes, there are losses so big that you are lucky if you leave with what you came with. If ever you decide to invest in the stock market long term. I would suggest that you do your research first especially on newly formed companies with potential. This is a good long term investment because you'll buy your shares for a low price and once the business is successful as you predict, you can sell your shares for an extremely high profit. Just as the first investors of Facebook.

I really do think a lot of planning, strategy setting and practice (on a stock market simulator) is necessary before going in. Patience is a must too, we've all heard those horrible suicide stories haven't we..?

Also, I think that patience and a willingness to learn from one's mistakes and constant information gathering and research are musts for this.

Just my 2 cents!

There isn't any stocks that don't represent a risk. Think about it. Remember when the Enron scandal went down? And the Worldcom/MCI thing happened? MCI/Worldcom was one of the largest communications companies in the world...and was brought to its knees in a matter of just a few days after the accounting scandal broke. Even though you think you are investing in solid companies, unless you are there, working in every aspect of the company, there is no way that you can know 100% for sure that the company isn't doing something that won't wind up being it's ultimate death. And that doesn't even take into consideration current and future market conditions. There is no such thing as a risk free investment. There are low risk investments, but not risk free.

True, at the end it all depends on whether you are risk pro or rick averse. Being risk averse can more often than not cause stability but lower comparative returns. Risk taking can be very unstable yet prove very, very lucrative.

In stocks investing, you need to know the company that you wanted to buy. You have to scrutinize their financial statements. Usually, if you are using an online platform from your broker, these information are available just in just a few clicks. Check the index and you will find the most stable companies there is. Yes the risk is high, but you really have to put your heart in it, try to learn it, enroll in a demo account and figure out if stock investing is ok for you.

My brother-in-law has a friend who owns an investment broker firm. I am going to go there as soon as I have saved $10,000. I would like for him to help me start my portfolio.
I have heard if you have help from a professional, as oposed to a DIY portfolio, you are sure to get the outcome you are looking for. I do not want to mess up my portfolio and invest more than I should have to.

It seems that this business would take a lot more research than a lot of the other ones that are available today. As such, I'd think that there would be more of a learning curve, especially since it's hard to know who's going to teach you correctly. All of this bothers me, which is why this still ain't for me. I truly respect/admire those who get into it and make decent money from it though.

Unless you have a decent capital, don't even think about getting started in stock trading. Most exchanges charge a fee of +-$5. A lot of stocks don't even make this profit. So try to weigh down how much percent the fee would be on your total capital. 0.1% would be nice to have.

First of all I'd like to thank everyone who has participated, I've been away for a while (and will continue to do so for at least a week) but it's good to see that the thread is going strong. Lot's of great comments!

I've noticed that a lot of people recommend not to invest more than you are ready to lose. I disagree with this, since if you have a decent portfolio you will never ever lose all of your money. Don't keep all your eggs in one basket. One company could go bankrupt for some unforseeable reasons and then you would lose the money you invested in that company, but in a larger portfolio that won't be more than 15% of your total investment.

My strategies are basically the same. I would like to earn a passive income, or retirement income I should say, from the dividends in my portfolio.
My brother-in-law has a friend who owns an investment broker firm. I am going to go there as soon as I have saved $10,000. I would like for him to help me start my portfolio.
I have heard if you have help from a professional, as oposed to a DIY portfolio, you are sure to get the outcome you are looking for. I do not want to mess up my portfolio and invest more than I should have to.

Using a professional is something that divides opinions. Talking to them is a good idea, but you always have to keep in mind that they work for someone and as such, will try to sell you the products of their employer.

Also keep in mind that IF they would be really awesome at making great profits at the stock market, they would be lying on a beach with a laptop and a margarita, not working in an office for someone else.

A very good point when it comes to trading. When using small amounts and short periods of time, the commission can take up a huge percentage of your wins.
Two things to keep in mind when calculating commission and it's effects.
1. You pay commission for both buying and selling. So for a single trade you will pay the commission twice.
2. You also pay commission even if you lost money with the trade.

I haven't done any investing in the stock market, though I'm looking to do so in the near future. I read somewhere that it's a good idea to invest in mutual funds and private companies. Also, it seems that I should stay clear of penny stocks due to the risks involved. Obviously I would need to do much more research before diving in, but hopefully I'll be able to build a portfolio by the end of this year.

In buying shares of stocks, always remember that you are BUYING shares of OWNERSHIP of an existing company. So first and foremost, you have to make sure that you are buying only the best and well managed companies you think would last long and make profit. It is always better to buy big companies at a fair price, rather than buying shares of stocks from small companies at a cheap price.

Solid advice. So many people try to find that one company which will skyrocket, basically expecting to multiply their money 10x or 100x in a matter of years. That does happen often but it's a very risky business. Especially beginners should mainly stick to larger companies which are more stable.

Demo accounts are great for trading. Personally I only do long term investing instead of trading, so the necessities for capital are quite different. I'd say that $500 is enough to start investing but definitely not enough for trading.

You seem to have some experience with trading, what is the minimum amount you would recommend someone to have?

I think the minimum startup investment to get into stock market varies from many different countries. In my country, you can create a stockbroker account for free and start with the minimum of US$120 (based on today's forex rate). I tried to invest in the stock market from other countries such as Singapore and Japan and I found it to be different from what I used to know and experienced in my country.

Trading in Markets is overall fun and risky...and lucrative (if you have the right strategies). I personally don't trade stocks. I think they are too unpredictable and volatile. The foreign exchange market is somewhat the same, but it allows you to control your losses as you choose the volume of trade you want, etc. I trade forex. I have gained a lot so far and I am looking forward to a gainful future.

This is of course something you can do as an individual or as a company, depending on which is better for you in terms of expenses.
I'm doing it as an individual, currently owning shares from 11 different companies with the main idea of getting a decent passive income from their dividends.

Anyone else interested in this? Feel free to share your strategies, companies etc.Want to share some of the companies and how it's going for you? I've already been way too scared to invest in stocks.. especially in today's market. Didn't the stock market just take a huge plummet? The only thing that I think would be fun about owning stocks is being able to wake up and check them every day. It's all a gamble, and I don't know why anyone does it who doesn't have a lot of money to spare. If I were to come into some money somehow, I may give it a try. Otherwise, I am not too much of a gambling person.

If you are going to try it then atleast do your due dilligence. Read some books and learn the basics of the market, how and why it behaves. If you invest money without knowing that its basically all just a gamble.

While I find stock market a good place to invest (i.e. buying shares of stocks means owning part of the company), i find FOREX (binary options) to be like more of a gambling. You either just guess if the value of the currency (or commodity) would high or low and that's it. What makes it exciting though is if you have the ability to read technical analysis provided by your broker (which by the way, are more complicated than the tech analysis in the stock market), then you must be an expert.

Another thing that I do not like in binary options is the difficulty to withdraw your money.. its toooo complicated.

One last thing, I observed that the most binary option operators are based in Greece, Cyprus, and some islands in the pacific.. why? I dont know.

In the end it's about the commission. For long term investment, I think anything under 1% is acceptable. So if you manage to pay only $1 per puchase of commission, then $100 would be ok. So yes, definitely varies by which market you want to invest in and who your broker is.

Going really well at the moment for me. The market has been going up for a long time now, so most people should have a positive balance at the moment!
Some of my companies which I love:
Aqua America
Raytheon
Philip Morris

Growing, more or less stable, good dividend history etc. These will not make you rich instantly but will very likely lead to a long term growth.

I have been investing in the stock markets for the past two years or so. Before selecting a company to invest into, I undertake quite an amount of research. The first thing which I look for is whether the company has a management which is clean and has had a good track record. Then I look for the potential competitive advantages it enjoys in comparison to the other players in the industry. Next on the list is whether they have defaulted on their credit or not. I also look at their past financial results. Budding investors are advised to always research the company they want to invest into

Exactly, I am hoping for a big correction of the stock market to enter a position. I would consider entering under a P/E of 25. Its not very likely that it will happen soon but I have my eye on it.

With a P/E of 25 that would look like a good buy. However that would require a huge correction and then some bad news for the company itself.

Currently I'm planning on increasing my positions in the companies which I currently own. I'm probably going to increase my position in IRC, mainly for their steady monthly dividends. I'd also love to buy some more Raytheon but the price has climbed quite high. Aqua America is also interesting but their percentage of my portfolio is already rather large.

I definitely agree on the market being overpriced. However seeing as the big boys want to keep pumping money into the market, prices could rise for a long time. I still keep buying in low quantities, with some cash always on the side in case the crash does come.

The thing is: looking at the companies, we seem to have very different strategies. Whereas you seem to go for companies with a lot of growth potential, I prefer playing it safe. I also aim for a good dividend income, not relying so much on the increase in the price of shares.

Never heard of that strategy before. It's not something I'd like to use though, a lot of changing stocks and only picking them based on very little info.

What I like to do is look into companies which are capable of increasing their dividend in the long term. Not only will this result in a good yield (for the price I bought them with) in a couple of years, it also provides a nice protection against inflation.

The strategy seem very interesting, but I have to cross check it with the Asian market stats because I think there is a big gap/difference between them, besides, many Asian companies have varying strategies and that is why its a kind of odd for me to just use it.

I'm in the financial trading profession, and seen my ups and downs. All I can say for sure is that you need to follow a strategy which you are confident about, and stick to your plan. You will never have all winning trades. Risk management is the key. Never let your losses accumulate, and use appropriate stop losses. This will apply whether you are day trading or investing for the long term

I've bought and sold some stocks in the past but not really enough to get a proper grasp of it, although I did end up gaining a profit in the end. I think it's best to just bank on stable companies when it comes to the stock market and treat it more just like a higher interest paying place to keep your funds. I wouldn't personally rely on it for majority of my annual income, and would rather that it be just a minor addition to it since it is probably best to see these investments from a long term perspective. I am very much interested in it, though, and I plan on learning a lot more about it in the next half of this year.

Well, if you were just learning the ropes and were still able to make a profit from it, you must have been doing something right. I agree that you shouldn't count on stocks as part of your annual income; instead, it should be a bit of a surprise if you're able to make much.

If it's day trading that you do then no, don't rely on it for your income. However with stable long term investing there is nothing wrong with relying on it... as long as your portfolio is done correctly. With most well established companies changes dividends are usually in the upwards direction, so with the right portfolio you will be making more money from dividends each and every year.

Investing is a great way to make your money go to work for you. It is something that many people should explore and the younger you are, the better position you are in to make a decent little nest egg for yourself for your golden years. It takes a lot of research, patience and trial and error to figure out what stocks and other investment vehicles will net you the greatest return. The more volatile the investment vehicle, the greater chance for a good return...but the greater the risk for loss.

Couldn't agree with you more novasparker, I am only 20 years old, but I have had the dream of playing the stock market since I was a young little boy.

You are young, you are not in a hurry so you should definitely look into more long term investing.

I've always wanted to invest long term in the stock market, so I plan to listen to the advice that a mentor gave me. The first and basic rule is to buy low and sell high, meaning sometimes it is better to go against what everyone is doing. The next is to make sure you understand what stocks you purchase by getting information of different stocks and not just invest in one. Another is to be patient, to be growth and value oriented buyers, to do a lot of research such as reading up on Warren Buffett, to not be discouraged when there are losses, and of course to learn to adapt to the changing stock market.

I was going to invest in stocks last year and while doing research I found some really potential picks by using Warren Buffett's system of analyzing companies. I looked over 1,000 company profile statistics and out of all of those I found about 50 great ones. Even out of those 50 I was only going to pick one or two to fully invest.

If you;re going to invest in stocks for profit you'll need to do your due diligence, I recommend reading The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett still sees this book as his cause for success. When a billionaire recommends something you look into it because it must have merit.

Just before investing in stocks I found a company that I now invest full time with, currently earning about 30% interest. Although I still look at those business profiles from time to time, I'm just not sure if they'll pay me as much as I'm earning right now.

P.S. If you're a day trader, then good luck! Seriously. You're going to be paying a whole lot in taxes sooner or later.

I can not possibly impress enough on the importance which due diligence holds in the world of investing. It is very essential that you extensively research about the companies you are thinking to invest into. At the end of the day, it is your knowledge of the stock market which is going to make you money. If you start following around tips without any research, you are almost bound to fail.

Well, Crimea is a very important strategic area for them, so I can see why they did it. As long as it's limited to that area, I can understand it. It certainly wasn't great for their reputation... then again it's Russia so their reputation really wasn't that great to begin with. We will see what happens in the next week or two.

This is a pretty wise move. Investing on stocks and waiting for your money to mature until you can withdraw them is a good idea. There are downsides though on stocks because they fluctuate. You have to be really careful on investing and make sure the company is established.

Nope. As far as I know they are quite hard to find, especially in the current times when stock prices are high. I do know that some of the stocks which I own do have assets which are very much undervalued, but that is only a good thing. If they will ever correct those values.. I don't know but it could give a tiny boost if they choose to do it.

Well, there is no way to predict the future. Predicting what other people will do is possible though, so that certainly does help. But then again, every situation is different and people always react differently, nowadays it's especially hard since big companies have their owners spread all over the world and thus react differently.

I used to invest in individual stocks. However, these days, particularly with the offerings from companies like Vanguard, I stick to mutual funds. There is a mutual fund to fit just about any goal at this point, it makes investing pretty easy. That and interest rates or so insanely low, its a waste of time to bother with CDs and the like these days.

Before investing in a stock market I'd recommend to everyone to do a practice fake investments, follow how much you'd make or lose over time, etc. It saves you from making beginner's mistakes with real money.
By doing this I learned that I am not good at judging which stocks are good to invest in.

Stock markets can not be predicted so it is about studying the markets and making some critical decisions when to buy and when to sell. If you can do that, then stock markets have a lot of money just passing around waiting for someone with the perfect skill to grab them.

I have made some investments in the stock market but only stocks that I know are not a risk. I will probably invest some more money if I have to time to manage it properly. I don't link to have my money sitting somewhere and then after a few months check up on it, I want it to be active and I want to see the fluctuations everyday so see what the trend of the stock is.

The most important part about investing which people tend to not care about is tracking the progress your investments. It is very important that you keep track of your investments. This is due to the reason that stock market is anything but reliable. Stocks tend to fluctuate a lot, even the ones who are trusted. So, I would advise everybody to keep a watch on your investments.

Yes, mutual funds do tend to cover every imaginable area nowadays. But I'm one of those people who enjoys following the market and the different companies, so for me mutual funds are not ideal since they don't allow me full control. I hate it when someone else is investing my money.

I'm interested in FTSE ISAs offered by the banks, they seem like a relatively safe way to build up your money, with better returns than ordinary saving. The brokers take a huge cut so an ISA would save money. I would invest money in companies like Poundland, companies that sell cheap are going to be more recession proof.

I would always pick an Index over mutual funds. The costs to get in are lower and you cant really track what your mutual fund will invest in. On the other hand Index funds rise as much as the Index and have low cost fees.

There is nothing wrong with investing in 11 dividend paying companies. What I would tell you though, as would Warren Buffett, is don't invest in a company solely with the intention of feeding off its dividends. Only invest in a dividend paying company if that company is still worth investing after removing the dividend-paying factor. As you know, dividend rates always change and sometimes companies can stop paying out dividends after a board decision. Think of dividends as a bonus. Always focus on the underlying business fundamentals.

Yes the costs are lower with index funds. They are a good option but you still shouldn't disregard other mutual funds, there are quite a few that have managed really well. And I believe they have a legal obligation to tell you which shares and how many of them make up the mutual fund. (this is country specific of course)

Yes, dividends are just one form of paying out profit. I do base a lot of my decisions around the dividends, but that is to say that I look at the dividend amount now and in the past, the earnings now and in the past, the payout ratio, if the company is actively buying back it's own shares etc. Dividends are the only constant passive income that we earn from shares, but they are only useful if handing them out doesn't harm the company.

If you aren't a professional investor, you shouldn't trade. But you can choose to buy and hold a couple blue chip stocks that give out good dividends like coca cola or what not. Stocks are a good idea long term if you choose to play it safe. Just don't use emergency money or expect to get out of a hole through investing if that's not your forte.

I bought a book called the Naked Trader and it's quite interesting. He makes good money playing the stock market and maybe you can too. He looks at company reports and highlights good words with green and bad words with red and uses a traffic light system to work out if they are worth investing in. There are probably lots of other good books on the topic. But definitely do your research and don't just buy stocks from any company.

I would rather invest via an investment cash ISA, that way I know its safe with the bank and I dont have to pay commission to the broker. It is difficult to know which companies are going to thrive and which aren't, really it is a form of gambling. I would say that investing in the ftse 100 is a safer option because these are longstanding well known companies and should be immune from uncertainty. The ftse index always seems to be going up in quite a steady and predictable way.

The best way is to try to tilt your portfolio. That is what mutual funds do. It allows you to get slightly higher returns than the average risk (beta) of stocks. I used to use Barra software to do this, but am not in the market right now.

Statistics have proven that short-term trading results in 40% of individual investors losing money. But statistics also prove that buy & hold is a great strategy.

And the average mutual fund also outperforms the average private investor.

When one starts to invest in the market for the first time, it is always better to start with small amount and take the risks with money you are prepared to lose. As you become more adept at evaluating stocks, you can start making bigger investments in future. Be patient and calm for the better results. Be prepared for the loss as well. It's good to invest on your own and learn more about the markets.

CARLOS DIAZ Being a first generation son from El Salvador he was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Growing up as part of the lower middle class, I had most of the basic necessities to survive, but lacked the luxuries that I desired. From my childhood I learned many lessons from my parents. I was raised with the belief that being your own businessman was the only way to create a great lifestyle. At the age of 19 however, my perspective changed dramatically due to the real estate crash of 2008.

www.syncis.com

Everything I knew, my family, home, and finances that I had relied on, was gone and I had to turn things around quickly. I experienced firsthand how important financial literacy was to creating and protecting my desired lifestyle. I realized during the crash, that I was meant to understand money and my journey to help others do the same began. After years of working and putting myself through college, I am now a proud CSUN graduate with a degree in Finance and Art.

www.teamelitezone.com

In 2013, I found Syncis in my life and it has helped me develop my passion further towards helping my family and others alike. My personal experiences allowed me to educate families while relating to them by simply teaching them how to make and save more money than they ever thought possible. I am truly blessed to be part of a company whose crusade is built upon trust and understanding.

Opening and closing positions within minutes rarely exists on the stock market. A lot of trades are done in a slightly longer time scale, within a an hour or two. These are mainly robots which try to predict future movements by algorithms but normal people do this too. I however recommend against it, it's very risky.

Before going to invest firstly know the rules properly: If the demand for a stock or share is high, then its share prices increase. Whereas if the demand of a particular stock or share is low, then it's prices will fall. And when this happens there are a lot of investors who are willing to sell their shares or stocks and thus they increase the supply of stocks in the stock market which will drive its price even more low.

Goods exports rebounded in February as expected, but imports also picked up. Exports of industrial supplies, capital goods and autos increased moderately, while exports of consumer goods and foods, feeds & beverages declined. For imports, most categories showed a decent increase except for “other goods.” The advance report on wholesale inventories showed a strong 1.1% m-o-m increase in February and a 0.2pp upward revision to January’s inventory accumulation (to 1.0%). Retail inventories grew at a 0.4% m-o-m pace, a slightly deceleration from the 0.7% pick-up in the previous month.

It is something that various people should explore and the more energetic you are, the better position you are in to impact a middle of the road minimal home to egg for yourself for your splendid years. It takes a huge amount of research, ingenuity and experimentation to understand what stocks and other theory vehicles will net you the best return. The more precarious the wander vehicle, the more critical shot for a nice return...but the more conspicuous the danger for disaster.

I guess if you really know your way around stock markets then it's good to invest on it.

Perhaps work on a personal financial plan before you invest in the stock market?

In most cases, every time you purchase an investment, it will cost you money (through commissions). With a limited amount of funds, these transaction fees can really put a dent on your $1,000. Investing in stocks can be very costly if you trade constantly, especially with a minimum amount of money available to invest

investing is a brilliant manner to make your cash go to be just right for you. it's miles some thing that many human beings have to explore and the more youthful you're, the better role you are in to make a first rate little nest egg for yourself to your golden years. It takes a variety of studies, staying power and trial and blunders to figure out what shares and other investment automobiles will net you the finest return. The more volatile the investment automobile, the more threat for a terrific return...however the greater the danger for loss.

As a rule, each time you buy a speculation, it will cost you cash (through commissions). With a restricted measure of assets, these exchange charges can truly put a mark on your $1,000. Putting resources into stocks can be exorbitant in the event that you exchange always, particularly with a base measure of cash accessible to contribute.

Long story short, he has reduced all the wasteful spending and till the age of 28 has managed to save $250k. With the lowest stock market interest, he expects to earn over $1,5 mln by 60 years old without ever adding a penny to that sum. Inspiring, right?

I never thought I would be part of the CPA. I heard it's a pretty good organization. Finally, accounting is a universal profession that helps you in life. Figures often helped me win poker. I know this sounds weird, but it is. The logic I developed in accounting, I apply in poker. Even the days I had poker deposit hit 10,000 (https://score88poker.bid/news.php?id=473).

In my opinion, such investing is very risky and it is doomed to fail. So, I don't know what these investors think about. From my point of view, playing poker99 (https://www.log8899.link/) is even less risky. I can't say for sure but when I played this game, it was pretty easy to win. I think most people have the same experience.

I guess if you really know your way around stock markets then it's good to invest on it. But if it's your first time, I won't hold my breath on it. It takes a while to study the rates and the flow of money in stocks. Also, you have to understand that all jurisdictial questions should be controlled by eligible experts. As an example, the opening of foreign bank account. I can recommend you this company (https://www.advancedconsulting.cy/knowledge-base/best-15-countries-to-open-offshore-bank-account/) , that has high rate of finding secure banks and than helping with creation of it. You have to understand that It's like gambling if you don't know the business inside it because all you would do is guess. it's also best to have a financial adviser to give you tips before you place your money on just about any stock.

Completely agree with this statemant. I guess if you are not aware of inner system of the business than it becomes a waste of money and time. You have to have all knowledge about the deal. Othervise it can become a sad experience.

Hello guys! What to invest to in 2020? I don't really think that stocks are the right thing to invest in now. Forex market is much better and alive now. There are a lot of people trading now, and why shouldn't you start to trade too? My problem is that I need to learn what to really do, and how to make smart trades. I am subscribed to forexkings.com (https://forexkings.com), and they have sent me some updates, and recommendations on what to invest to. It's great for newbies like me, but I still need to learn more, and be patient. My impatience has cost me some money, but I will try to be better at controlling it.

If you have free money to invest, you can think of forex trading. You may visit the Moft (https://tradersunion.com/) Forex website to see the trading conditions. Take enough time to study how the trading works. Sometimes, you can get very good profits with really minimum investments. But to achieve it, you need to study a lot. Without preparation, you risk to lose all your finances.

Investing is a great way to make money. This is something many people need to know, and as you age, your eggs can turn into a golden age. It takes a lot of research, patience, and trial and error to determine which stock or other investment vehicle is the most profitable. The greater the volatility of the investment vehicle, the greater the chances for a good return, but the greater the risk of loss.
