The Best Stock Market Trading Strategies - Investment Ideas For Beginners
The media will tell you 'putting all of your financial eggs in one basket is a dangerous' and the 'stock options trading is too risky' and 'forex trading is not for individuals'. All of these statements are wrong and are simply there to keep the uniformed scared and poor.
Lets have a look at some of the Best Stock Market Trading Strategies that most people don't even know exist!
- Renting Shares
- Naked Puts
- CFD Hedging
- Forex Trading
- Options Trading (short term and long term)
Just to name a few. Let's have a look in some more depth at why these really are the best stock market trading strategies that are available and why your brokers haven't told you about them.
Everybody always says that diversification is a must, all so called experts tend to highly recommend it yet have you stopped to think about it. If you buy dozens of different stocks your investment portfolio is basically representative of an index. That's fine but wouldn't it just be easier to buy an ETF that tracks the price of the index? Of course it would but your broker would never agree to this because they would lose out on valuable commissions. Instead they will probably recommend that you buy multiple managed funds that all pay them handsome commissions.
Although they rarely agree on anything else, brokers and financial advisors seem to always invest in a wide range of stocks. This basically assures you of mediocre results as even if you bought the well performing stocks you are more than likely to have got some bad ones too.
So what can you do to increase you knowledge of the stock market basics and in turn develop your stock trading strategies? Read everything that you can. Learn a day trading strategy even if you have no intent of using it, start reading about ex dividend dates and how you can take advantage of them, buy some stock investing software, do everything think that you can to create your own personal stock market trading strategies. It is only when you truly understand it yourself that you will be able to come up with the best stock market strategy in the world.
I believe the natural progresson towards becoming a successful investor goes like this. Education equals Knowledge - Knowledge equals Action's - Actions equal Success. Without the proper education you will never have enough courage to take the appropriate action and deal with the hard decisions.
