Money can come and go very easily at the stock market.Take the following stock market chart for example with mentioned DryShips, Inc.(NASDAQ:DRYS) stock.Yes the shipping industry has financial problems for many years but this stock activity is very strange.A spike in volume and price could make a lot of money but recently the stock has lost almost 88% of this high price of about $100 per share.This is not investing,it is gambling.And money can come and go very quickly.To make money in the stock market you need a solid investing and risk management plan.This speculative move did not last long,but could have made a lot of money in a very short time if someone could jump early in the rally.
Why do forecasts fail and how to make money with it?
It is rather simple, you cannot predict any event with 100% accuracy.If we could we would all have tons of money from investing or trading the financial markets.Recent US election result proved it. What is also interesting is the speed and urge of money.How much money is really enough?
The capital and financial markets reacted with a lot of volatility this first day of US election result.A lot of money was made and lost as volatility is bot good and bad for sound money management.
Online trading and money making expectations are too important
If you trade online to make money online then do you have expectations?A plan when to take your profits and make money or when to cut losses and just lose money?Watching the capital markets and financial markets online to set up trades daily is both challenging and difficult.You get tired watching the screen,unless you know what to look for.The trade that will bring you closer to your financial and investing goals.For the day.Tomorrow is another whole different day for the capital markets and your new money making goals and desires.
There are no stupid trades, trading is risky with no guarantees of success and profits.Simplicity in online trading is one of the most effective financial advice that a trader, financial analyst can apply.A daily trading plan need not be too complicated to confront financial markets opportunities
There are many steps to a daily trading plan. But simplicity is one of the best advice to apply in online trading. Here are 5 steps that I personally apply to my trading and financial analysis for stock market and forex market.
1.Read latest fundamental and economic news, and daily calendar with news releases that may cause volatility and significant price action.
2.Form your own objective view based on your analysis and arguments about what side of the market will you open any positions, long and bullish or short and bearish. Be an independent thinker.
3.Set up your trades with well-established levels of profit, loss and open or close positions if they meet any of your risk/reward criteria. If not any good trade setups appear it is ok to pass on and do not trade at all.
4.Have a positive mood and state of mind, affirmations can help a lot on that, think of success only.
5. Apply your risk management plan and review at the end of day your performance appraisal and attribution. Even if you made a loss as long as it was within your defined risks limits and not an excessive one, it is not a failure.
Finally remember that stock market and forex market are both risky and to make money consistency is very important as great risk management is also. One month of great profitability is not enough to make you a great trader, financial analyst or portfolio manager. Same rule applies to a month of losses. It is the long run performance that matters in online trading, and statistics are not always indicative of whole truth.
Avoiding large drawdowns in returns is both challenging and tough to achieve. But at the end numbers only matter, and effort or time spent plus stress that was felt to achieve those numbers are ignored.
Have a daily positive attitude for facing the financial markets, each day is almost unique, this makes them exciting and do not set boundaries, then just apply your trading plan and be satisfied and happy you approached trading as an investment professional.
For now this financial idea needs a lot of due diligence.Ideas are mainly free,results in terms of profits are not.Diversification is always a good thing in investing.But what if this idea is just another investment that is not suitable for everyone?Do not get carried away,make your own investment policy statement.Or with the help of a financial professional.
Contests for traders and money are available regularly from many sources.Forex brokers often offer such trading contests.Their goal is to attract participants and gain online exposure and free publicity.The gain for any trader is experience and knowledge.Even if competition is tough and winners are only a few,trading in a contest can teach valuable financial lessons.But treat capital like real money.Just because in most cases you trade a demo account risk management rules should not be ignored.
Only gains and not just in money terms exist from such trading contests.And if you win then you can add this achievement to your trading career and goals.
Money and bonuses.An interesting connection.Good performance in investing and trading often brings more money as a bonus.Bonus payments are acting as an incentive and a reward if actual investing performance is better than a benchmark.But there is always the danger of excessive risk.Some guidance must always apply as to risk taken to preserve capital. Fees and money bonuses need close examination.But there is nothing wrong when good returns are achieved with modest risk taken bonuses to be paid.It is a winning financial decision both for investors and fund managers.
What is the worst scenario about money and personal finance?The possibility of creating wealth,a lot of capital and high income.And then one day or gradually over time lose it all.It can happen if you have a business or have invested money and capital without having diversification.It is an unpleasant scenario.And sometimes nothing can prevent it from happening.So financial planning and putting a fund for emergency reserves is vital.Money comes and goes and we want to to control the rate of spending it.
