Money in the stock market
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.
Money and financial markets online trading
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.
Investing and money management
The answer depends on your risk averse measurement.If you like risk a lot you can follow the trend,but it may have little more room for gains.The most reasonable action is to wait,be patient and realize that trading and investing will exist also not today,but the days in the future.Opportunities to make money appear often.And also many bad trades lead to lose money and capital.
