A Few Essential Tips for Long-Term Trading

The stock market is unstable at the moment. In fact, the last few months have been anything but good for the common investor. Starting with the economic meltdown in Greece, followed by the splitting of UK from the Eurozone, to the economic fiasco brewing in a few of the major powers to even China economic slowdown, nothing has really gone right. As such, the current global financial situation is rather down. The main reason for this is the low confidence among investors. But that does not mean that the market will not improve. In fact, if the situation of the major companies is to be looked at, the market condition is slowly but surely improving. Firms like JP Morgan have reported a growth in the 3rd quarter of 2016 after a yearlong break.

Where to Turn?

The only sensible decision for getting through the current market is long term investment. After all, the market seems to be getting better and the prices will definitely rise. In fact, investing in stocks now means when the prices do get better, you will have a much better return on your investments. All that said, we will be covering a few important tips to keep in mind for the long term investor.

  • Do your Research

This is, by far, the most important tip here. Instead of relying on information from your broker, your cousin or the next door neighbor, do your own research. Of course, a tip is a great thing, but looking into the information before blindly following in is going to pay off manifolds. An informed investor is a safe investor. Get great advice from trusted sites like Trusted Binary Reviews. Also check the financial news, like forbes.com.

  • Do NOT panic for the small things

Remember, you are a long term investor. As such, when you invest, you invest after looking into all the details of a particular stock. You do not buy a stock simply so that you can let it go after a month. Thus, it is important that you do not lose your cool when the stock prices fall a little in the short run. Believe in your own analysis and remember that it is just as important not to let go of the stock if you see it rising a little. You are after the big game, not the small changes that everyone else is chasing after.

  • The Future is what Matters

When playing for the long term, it is often possible to lose yourself in all the data. Remember one thing. Even though it is past data that guides us to buy a stock in the first place, at the end, all that matters is what will happen in the future. Thus, instead of placing too much stock on all the charts and details, look into what might happen. For example, place your belief in the future potential of a stock instead of noting what has already happened. Everyone else can tell you how the stock behaved. It is up to you to realize how it is going to do so.

  • Be Sure of Yourself

When you start trading, you would pick a strategy. This is your starting point. Our advice to you is to stick with your decision. It is important to realize that constantly changing sides is not going to be helpful. In fact, if anything, it is worse than anything else. While we would not deny that there is a very big lure to become a market timer, it is one with such a big risk that the potential to lose far outweighs the probability of a success.

  • Be Perceptive

Everyone can invest in Apple. In fact, it is one of the most stable stocks in the market at the moment. But the opportunity for growth there is limited. What you need to do is be open minded. There are a lot of good companies out there that are just starting out and have the potential to grow up to be big time earners. Be on the lookout for these. Remember, you are a long time trader. As long as you are confident that a firm will be successful in the long run, do not shy away from them. Do not listen to what others are saying. They will not be reaping the success that will follow from your decisions.

In conclusion, remember to look at the market from a different perspective. If you are in the same boat as others, you will never be able to identify the opportunities that everyone else will miss. Long term trading has more to do with being future oriented than anything else.

Tulsiani Investments and Private Investment Club (PIC) Investment Guidelines

Targeted Advice and Built-in SCAM Protection Are Part of the Private Investment Service

Toronto’s business district is no stranger to wealth-creating machines but even amongst the seasoned companies which operate there Tulsiani Investments and Private Investment Club (PIC) are ahead of the pack.

Formed by Sunil Tulsiani, a former Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer who quit his job and made it big in real estate, the two companies have, over the years, managed to create an impressive track record of solid investment and good returns. Sunil Tulsiani, is known affectionately as ‘The Wealthy Cop’ and, over the years, has been instrumental in guiding his companies in areas which help to protect as well as guide potential investors.

“Real estate investment is a volatile field with many opportunities and just as many chances to go wrong,” he says, “I know because I dealt in all this first hand and I have invaluable experience to offer those who we help advise.” Part of the Tulsiani Investment and Private Investment Club (PIC) service is a built-in protection against fraud and scams. Nothing less than what you might expect from a former cop but more than most investment companies offer in this field.

“We cannot automatically protect every member against themselves,” explained a PIC spokesman in a recent interview, “our resources are engaged in carrying out due diligence and securing the kind of deal for our members which help them gain a good return on their investment, but we do offer, where possible, targeted advice based on our own experience of the market and the depth of information we receive. On a number of occasions we have been instrumental in helping our members spot deals which really were too good to be true and safeguarding their money.”

As you might expect there are guidelines to keep in mind when it comes to investing in real estate:

  1. Do your homework – although you may have a professional who is guiding you it is still your money and the ultimate responsibility for its management rests with you. The professional will give you advice and work with you to help you reach a decision you are comfortable with but that is as far as it goes. Beyond that the onus is on you.
  2. Do not over-reach yourself – Investing is not unlike gambling. The potential returns are better and the odds can be stacked in your favour with some careful research and very carefully managed moves but it’s still good sense to never invest more than you can afford to lose.
  3. Do not ignore professional advice – We all have had that moment when we have felt deep in our gut that this is ‘the one’. The deal which is going to make us wealthy. Sadly the fact is that financial acumen resides in the head and not the gut. So, if you have had one of those feelings and are compelled to act upon it, it is better by far if you also use your head and take some professional advice and really listen to it.
  4. Look for opportunities – Even in the most saturated real estate investment market there are opportunities to be had. Make sure you look for targeted, emergent market opportunities, carry out your due diligence and risk assessment and then move ahead of the pack, get in first and get out before the property price curve begins to dip.
  5. Spread the risk – Join an investment club or an investment company. Working alone not only limits what you can do and what you can learn it also puts you in the cross-hairs should the deal go south. By working through an investment company or an investment club you avoid all this by having practical help plus the real advantage of limiting your exposure and spreading the risk.

Real Estate investing is not for the faint hearted, particularly since the sub-prime mortgage meltdown and the global credit crunch. It is, nevertheless, one of the most targeted ways there are to make real money, real fast and as such it should not be lightly dismissed.


U. S. Chamber of Commerce Defends Investment of Business Moving Jobs Overseas

Who’s Looking Out for You?

In this debate about business taxes being raised, healthcare not supposedly helpful to business owners and some business packing up and going over seas, one thing that many have over -looked is that there has been a lot of foreign investment while investment in the companies here have fallen off. Wonder if this is true just look around, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see it.

The Big Brother to Big Business, the Chamber of Commerce has even admitted that increase although they say that it is a good thing because well you can read what they said. “The primary means by which U.S. firms deliver goods and services to foreign customers is by investing abroad and creating a foreign affiliate. Many workers hired by American company’s abroad work for these affiliates to service local markets. All told, these affiliates generate substantial earnings for American companies. Their sales totaled $4.7 trillion in 2006 -a sum more than triple the export earnings of U.S. companies ($1.4 trillion in 2006). These earnings help provide American companies with a growing pool of capital to help their companies grow, innovate, and create better jobs at home”. Notice that they said create better jobs at home but I must ask how many better jobs were created in 2006 by these companies whose sales reached $4.7 trillion in 2006.

You would think that every one is quite aware of the risk of doing business but isn’t that why there were so many loopholes created in the tax codes for businesses to incentivize them to be more willing to take that risk on American companies looking to create and keep these jobs right here at home. To a person leaders all say that small businesses drives this economy and creates jobs but no one is policing those tasked with providing that avenue to job creation from small businesses. These same leaders keep saying that banks should be lending but where is the enforcement necessary to force, if necessary, them to do what needs to be done. It would appear to me that as a nation, we all rise and fall together and if there is a real risk in doing business, one would rather risk with American businesses here at home than gamble with foreign investments but then that’s just my thoughts, I could be wrong.
