There are a lot of expressions involving the stock market. One is "I got rich because I never bought at the bottom, and I always sold too soon." Meaning that if you try to "hit it out of the park" with every trade, you may risk losing everything. While taking short, consistent profits (never buy at the bottom, always sell too soon) over an extended period is a great way to make a fortune. Another one is to "sell down to the sleeping point." Which means if you can't sleep, you have too much risk. Risk is necessary, but if you can't sleep, you've got too much. Another famous line is, "the best time to buy is when there is blood in the streets." What does this mean? Well, consider there are two kinds of traders. Those who trade on emotion, and those who trade on logic. "Blood in the streets," means that everything is crashing, and everybody is panicking. Which means if you follow logic, you can find some VERY undervalued stocks. Why all of these stock market metaphors? The world economy is in a very dangerous transition phase. Kind of like when there is "blood on the streets." Not much is working like it used to be. And if you try and survive using methods that used to work, you may be in for a surprise. When the car was invented, a lot of horse and buggy companies went out of business. When the Internet was invented, a lot of newspapers vanished. Those that cling to the old ways don't usually do so well. But those that are mentally flexible, able to think "outside the box" and look for opportunities may find them EVERYWHERE. But you've got to not only actively seek them, but know HOW to take advantage of them. Nobody is going to show you how. The better you can "think," the more things you can learn (and learn on the fly, not sitting in a classroom) the more opportunities you'll see. After all, all those stone cold players who bought when there was blood in the streets made HUGE FORTUNES. Click Here To Learn More
