Mastering Investing

5 Nov

Everybody seemed to be out to discover how to either start growing their income portfolio or increase their wealth.  And what a fortunate timing because experts have gone out of their way to share what they know to others. People have easy access to sit by the  Socrates’ of investing in tutorials, workshops, seminars and more.

Personally, I have received invites to seminars that’s going to be held in  November.  And it can be confusing sometimes to choose the event I need to invest in.  For then again, these events do not come for free and rightly so.

I must say seminars for free will give you a taste of the pie but you won’t be able to eat it.  Most of these free seminars direct you to one that requires an investment on your part.

Now, if you are thinking of investing in one of these events,  what do you need to consider?  You may take a look at some of the value you are getting with your investment:

  1. The resource speakers –  It is not surprising anymore that all of them are experts in their field.  You may even find the same speaker in two different events.   Study the resource speakers’ bio carefully.  It is different to have a resource person who knows theoretically but does not know practically.  Go for someone who has done it and continues to do it successfully.
  2. The theme of the event –  If you want to discover investing, you will be presented with various events concerning investing.  There are property investing events, developing an entrepreneurial   mindset events, shares investing events and more.   There are people who are really willing to attend each of these events and pay for them too.  However, you can be prudent and choose  the appropriate ones that will resonate to your requirements and current financial status.  Better yet, choose one that showcases a variety of themes and resource speakers.
  3. What happens after the event? –  I will be betting that a majority of the attendees will not be getting “it” immediately after a certain event.  Even if you will be armed with loads of knowledge, you will still be groping when you begin your journey.  And it will be very important that you will have guidance in the very first stages of your task.  Make sure that support is available from the event’s secretariat or team after the event.

These are just a few of the things you need to consider before choosing an event you want to invest in.  Of course, there are other considerations like money-back guarantee, what’s included in the event, price. venue and more.

I have come across an invite from Mastering Investments Seminar to be held on 20-21 November 2010 in Newcastle, organised by Justine Pollard and Katie McDonald who will be joined by other three fabulous women like Jo Chivers, Fiona Herbert and Trish Davies.

And I must say,  this is the kind of event you must invest in.  For one, the speakers are not just experts in theories about mastering investing but they are investors themselves and investing successfully.  Second, this event will not only focus on one way of increasing your wealth but two of the great vehicles in paving the way to your financial freedom namely property and shares investing.  Third, for the value of having an action plan after the event, not to mention the accessible support from the resource speakers themselves, the investment required from you is ridiculously cheap. And it comes with a money back guarantee.  Finally,  there’s over $4,000 worth of special gift bonuses from each of the speakers.

Well, there you have it.  If you want to master investing, invest in learning and get educated.



Learning Technical Analysis…

14 Jul

I never thought that I will reach a point in my life that I will find charting totally interesting. You see, I am a self-proclaimed lover of the arts and not a lover of sciences and math.

You are probably aware how people often find sciences and math daunting as subject matters. And charting is very much associated with math. So how in the world did I suddenly find charting and figures interesting?

First, it is the association in math that makes charting a very reliable tool in gauging the action happening in the stock market. Since the market is basically communicating in numbers and figures, charting has made me understand the market more.

Secondly, I never really realized before that almost everything that are going on in the market, the price movements, the fluctuations, the highs and lows, the trends are there in my charts. Yes, the indicators are there and all I have to do is read them.

Finally, charting has made me more vigilant in my share and CFD trades. While I would rely on what others are saying about the market, I now have the ability to know myself through my charts.

As a newbie in trading…I say learn technical analysis and profit more. .

What are CFDs?

10 Jun

You have probably heard or read about CFDs in netopia. I mean, it is the buzz now a days. With CFDs getting more and more popular, people are opting to invest on it aside from shares of course.

So, what are CFDs?A CFD is a contract between you and the company that you are using to make the purchase. You trade the same shares as those listed on the stock exchange, but in a simulated market environment. For example, if you were to buy 1000 National Australia Bank Share CFDs, you would have a contract with the CFD provider for that trade. A shareholder, on the other hand, actually owns a stake in the company. In short, a CFD offers the benefits of trading shares by mirroring the performance of the share or index, without the need to actually own them.

The increasing demand for CFDs as another mode of investment has paved the way for continued growth and they are now being offered by many different providers in the market place. There are companies that specialise in CFD trading only to brokers that have added CFDs to their current range of trading instruments. And they all offer their own platforms, strategies, perks and range of CFDs you can trade. Making it harder to choose a good CFD provider and you need to spend time researching all the different choices each provider has to offer.

The good news is there is an exclusive deal accessible through Smart Trading with trading CFDs…know more about this in the next blog.

Do you have a trading plan?

8 Jun

Think about this, if you are on your way for a trip to a foreign place, what is the most important thing that you should not forget to bring?

I would bring cash and my map and I am ready to go.

If you are thinking of investing or trading the stock market, your road map in such a world is a trading plan. You heard it right, you need to have a trading plan.

If you think this is a new term, no this is not. In business, you have your business plan. Like any business, trading is a business so you need a trading plan.

However, do you know what constitutes a good trading plan? Do you want a trading plan template that you can customize along the way of your trading journey? Do you know the steps?

There are a lot of things to consider in making a trading plan. If you are new to trading, you will be needing to educate yourself with the important terminologies that people use in the stock market. Believe me, they use a different language. You will find yourself wondering if you were in Alice in Wonderland rather than the stock market.

You need to acquaint yourself with the tools in trading. With the advent of new technology, software in trading is very much accessible. You need to decide whether you will be needing these trading instruments or not.

You also need to establish what kind of trader or investor you want to be. Would you base your trading decisions by looking at stocks through the company or will you be using charts.

Whew! These are but a few things to consider in making your trading plan or trading plan template.

If you want help, grab a copy of the book Smart Trading Plans by Justine Pollard. It is all there.

CFD Trade or Invest?

18 Mar

CFD Trade or Invest? I read an article that says trading and investing are not the same. In the business of trading, you have a goal in mind as part of your trading plan. You may have the plan to increase your income and grow your wealth through the stock market.

Well, you may either trade or invest. Or you may do both. Trading has something to do with actively buying and selling shares in a short-term or middle-term trading of shares or CFDs. Investing has something to do with just buying and holding on to a share for a longer time and re-investing on it. And voila! You may find out that after years of reinvesting on the same shares and holding on to it, you have produced a large number of shares already with hopefully a higher yield.

Well, it is up to you whether you want CFD trade or CFD investment; share trading or share investment. Be wary though that you trade or invest smartly.
