Comments Off on Investing in the Stock Market 17 October 2013

Saving up for your future is a good thing, but not as effective nowadays in protecting your financial security. As major economies remain dipped in recession, the effects continue to plague society with employment remaining scarce, consumer debt increasing rapidly, and governments edging default.

More and more people are now engaging investment assets as an extra source of income. The very same adverse economic environment that has been around for a few years now seems to have cause adaption of society in becoming more financially aware and smart when it comes to money management. Furthermore, the Internet has given birth to a new era of investors who now have the power to start and maintain their investment portfolio without having to get off their computer chair.

The stock market is one of the most traded markets worldwide, with retail traders comprising a considerable chunk of the trade volume that is processed on a daily basis. If you are interested in the stock market, here are a few things to consider before you sign up an account with any broker and start exposing your money to risk.

First and foremost, use money that you can afford to lose. Do not use money intended for groceries, education for your children, medical savings, and mortgage payments. This adds to the pressure of taking any positions and leads to more detriment after a trade has turned against you.

Second, trade companies you know. Don’t trade stocks of companies you don’t know as it disables you from precisely analyzing the industry’s current and future condition, which is an important parameter to entering and exiting a position. Go for companies that are more established and those that sell products you actually use.

Third, work on your psychology. Ask any successful trader in the world and they will tell you psychology is the most important factor in your trading venture. Without a sound mindset, your emotions will kick in and take its toll on your ability to decide profitably. Any financial market is a mentally challenging arena, if you are not psychologically capable of handling the stress, it is best to opt for another investment method like Treasury bonds and notes, which offer less to no risk at all.

Fourth, add to your screen time consistently. It may seem useless while you are doing it, but paying attention to charts at least 2 or 3 hours a day can help you build a connection with the market and how it moves. You will start to get its rhythm thus leading to more profitable trades.
