Stock Investing Tips

1.) Have the Right Expectations
When you are investing in stocks, you want to make sure you aren’t expecting to become Warren Buffet over night. It just wont happen. You want to make sure you do the proper amount of research, and make sure you know the history of the market as well as the company you are investing in. When investing in stocks, the return is around 10%-13%. You don’t want to make hasty decisions and buy and sell a lot just because you aren’t making the money you expected. Make sure you know how long you are keeping an investment, and then make a commitment. This will help you focus on the principles.

2.) Don’t Listen to the Media
Don’t get caught up in what everyone is talking about and what is being said around you. It will take your decision from being based on research and history, to just “hear-say”. This will hurt your investments immensely. Most of the hype and other things that are being said are just the daily fluctuation of the market.

3.) Stay Focused
You want to make sure you are putting all your effort and focus into your investments. Once you buy a stock, you own part of a company. Make sure you treat it the way it is and make sure you do the proper research of all aspects of what you’re investing in. Doing your research can change your investment of making a profit of $15,000, to losing $15,000. In the end, it’s always worth it to do the extra work.

Mutual Funds
When you invest in Mutual Funds, you are pooling your money with a number of other investors. You then pay someone to professionally manage and choose each individual security for you. There are a variety of different mutual funds you can choose to invest in, which range to fit your investment strategy.
3 Types of Mutual Funds
1.) Open-Ended
2.) Unit Investment Trust
3.) Close-Ended

Mutual Fund Investing Tips

1.) Look at the Fees
Always look at the fees involved when investing in Mutual Funds. When you pay more for something, this usually means that you are going to be getting a better product or service, right? Yes! Makes sure you find the best deal, but make sure you are investing the right amount of money in the right places. It can change the course of the whole investment in the long run.

2.) Research the History
One thing you can do to prepare an investment is to check out the history of the Mutual Fund. Just like anything, the history shows how well it has performed, and can be a good indicator. This can directly tell you if it will be a good investment whether it be long term or short term. Another thing you want to look at, is the asset of the fund. If it’s doing good, and there is a community of people investing in it, it can tell you if its a smart idea to invest yourself. Always check the history of any investment before you decide to purchase.

3.) Look at the Contract
You never know what is all involved until you take a detailed look at the prospectus provided by the fund. You want to make sure you don’t just know bits and pieces of what’s involved, but everything there is to know, and then some. Make sure you know all the fees involved with buying and selling funds, and if there are international fees required. Knowing this can help you determine if the company is a solid company where you can make money, or if you are getting into something you will regret in the future.

Bank Investments
Bank accounts are one of the simplest form of investment. Most banks give you a very small percentage for opening a bank account and giving them your money. This percentage barely beats the rise of inflation, so unless you are keeping hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank, you won’t be creating any wealth from this form of investment. Another way to invest in your bank is a CD, or Certificate of Deposit. A CD if very similar to a bank account, but they are usually for a fixed amount of time. They can be monthly, every six months, a year, etc. the CD is then held until its maturity date, and paid back with interest. A Certificate of Deposit usually earns more money than an account at which you can withdrawal the money at any time, like a bank account.

Alternative Investments
Apart from the basic investments, there are other special securities. These investments include gold/silver, real estate, etc. These investments are speculative and can be very high profit, however; you need to have the knowledge.

1.) Gold & Silver
The first thing you want to do before you invest in gold or silver, is to look at the market and decide if now is the best time to invest in precious metals. You can also talk to a professional and decide when the best time to buy and sell would be. You want to make sure you are familiar with the variety of ways to invest in silver. You can invest in silver mining companies, silver ETF’s, silver futures, silver bullion, and also silver coins. You want to make sure the Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) are backed by physical gold and silver. Another thing to remember, is to not just own a paper owning, but the actual precious metal as well.

The Basics Of Day Trading

trading day. The trading positions, usually though not always, are closed before the market closes for the trading day.

Day trading is different from after- hours trading where the trading activity continues even after the regular marketing hours when the stock exchange closes.

Sellers and buyers who participate in day trading are called day traders. Although day trading evokes the image of a hectic trading activity in course of the trading day, it may not be so in actual practice. You may make several trades, say a dozen, in course of a trading day, or, you may limit yourself to just one trade.

You may, in some cases, just buy a stock on one day and sell it on the next day, if you think that selling it on the same day would not prove profitable. There is no legal restriction such as that you must finish off your trading activity the same day. You may, at the most, have to pay some differential on brokerage if you carry your trade to the next day.

In standard practice, traders usually tend to close their trading positions by the end of the same trading day. In any case your trading frequency depends entirely on your trading strategy for that particular day, or, your general trading style and outlook.

There are traders who focus on very short or short term trading. They finish off their trades in a matter of few minutes or even seconds. Such traders buy and sell several times a day and usually their trades consist of high volumes. They are the favorites of the brokers who reward them with big discounts on commissions.

Some traders, however, do not hanker after reduced brokerages. They focus on momentum or trends of the stock movement. They are very patient during their wait for a strong move, which may occur during the trading day. Obviously such day traders make only a few trades.

There are traders who prefer to sell off their stocks before the close of the market day to avoid the risks arising out of the price gaps between the closing price on the day they bought a stock and its opening price on the next day. They consider this practice as a golden rule and follow it almost religiously.

Other traders believe in allowing the profits to run so they stay with the position even after the market closes.

As said earlier, the number of trades you make on a trading day depends upon your trading style or trading strategies.

Profits and risks in day trading

Day traders make quick bucks and also quick losses in a matter of minutes or at the end of the trading day. Day trading may evoke the visions of gamblers gaming in casinos. There is, however, a marked difference between day trading and gambling.

While, you cannot make any calculated moves or devise any intelligent strategies in gambling, except when you are out to cheat others, day trading involves very serious understanding of the process of trading.

You study the general market trends and the movement of the stocks. You make fundamental and technical analysis and keep yourself abreast of the latest news flashes about the stocks of the companies that you trade in and much more.

Day trading is not playing a blind man’s buff or just throwing away a dice. You have to be very alert and cautious before every move. It would, therefore, be unfair to call day traders gamblers or bandits as some frustrated losers in day trading are apt to do.

Experienced and intuitive traders generate huge percentage of returns from day trading. Some stock traders manage to mint millions per year solely on the day trading. A large number of persons have successfully made day trading a sole avenue of making their livelihood.

This, however, is not to deny the risks of huge losses in day trading. Those who trade without a calculated and intelligent strategy and discipline are more likely to incur huge losses in day trading. This happens more with those who use borrowed funds, a practice known as buying on margins. They have to pay back the borrowed amounts with huge interests and other penalties if fail to make profits. This is what makes day trading really risky.
