Along For the Ride, Just Like a Flea on a Dog’s Back.

In the share market I do not mind hitching a ride with strangers because I understand that I am not a partner in that business or company.

Thinking you are a “Partner” just because you own some shares in the company is one of the most “FATAL”  beliefs in the market.

Accept who you are and the role you play and that “Like that flea on the dog” you are just along for the ride.

This is not a time based strategy; it can be for one day, one week or a month or even longer. It all depends on the length of the ride and the trend of the stock as long as it is heading upwards and of course that’s the way you want to go.

As soon as the trend finishes or changes direction (goes downwards or sideways) then it is time to jump off.

You then wait till the trend restarts upwards or you can look for another ride elsewhere. [Read more →]

Here’s the Real Reason Why Stock Market Prices Go Up.

Here’s the Real Reason Why Stock Market Prices Go Up

Over the past couple of weeks we’d heard stories about the queues forming at bullion dealers.

Our old pal, Diggers & Drillers editor, Dr Alex Cowie had heard first hand from bullion dealers in Melbourne and Sydney about lines forming out the door and down corridors.

Anyway, being a cynical soul, we thought we’d check the scene out ourselves.

Bearing in mind that the last time we turned up at a bullion dealer four months ago, you could swing three cats tied head to tail and still not hit anyone, we were surprised at what we saw…

When we got there just before lunch there were four people ahead of us in the queue. [Read more →]

The Gold Meltdown – What Happened?

Adam Hewison who is Preseident of INOTV will be supplying free training videos on various topics for Asxnewbie. To view these FREE training videos  just click on the links provided. Enjoy.

The Gold Meltdown – What Happened?

In today’s Trade School video, we’re going to be looking into what caused the recent meltdown in gold prices. How could gold drop so precipitously in such a short time, given what’s going on in the world? Did it have anything to do with the ETF GLD or was a country forced to sell its precious metals to satisfy creditors?

I will share with you how you could have systematically made money in gold using our Trade Triangle technology, which has produced some very positive results over the years.

Since 1975, there have been 13 bear markets with an average drop around 14%. This would put gold below the $1,300 level, around $1,280.

In this short 4 minute video on gold, I will illustrate the importance of having a solid game plan and a market-proven approach. We will go through each trade in gold and share with you the results of using our Trade Triangle approach from the beginning of the year.

This approach is not for everyone, but we think you will agree that the results certainly speak for themselves.

Why Aristotle Still Matters to Traders and Investors.

Why Aristotle Still Matters to Traders and Investors

It is the task of Money Weekend this week to transport the philosophers Aristotle and Plato from the Greek agora of centuries past to today’s stock market. If this sounds like a turn off, stick with us, because your trading account might benefit.

But before we get to those two, there’s the small matter of the US Fed and the glitch in the bull run on the ASX.

Greed and Fear TradingStocks actually finished up for the month of February. In fact, the ASX / 200 broke through the 5,000 points mark for the first time since early 2010. And despite a few bumps, it’s managing to hold above that figure. But it is slightly down from the high it hit in the third week of February. You can’t have everything.

It could be thanks to the 2.3% drop in the market following the release of the January minutes from the US Federal Reserve. That spooked markets worldwide. The Fed reminded everyone that stocks look a lot riskier if the US central bank stops pumping money into the system.

Of course, it’s since been written off as an empty threat for now. Uncle Ben Bernanke says the Fed’s actions have helped markets and the economy. And stock markets worldwide recovered. But it was a good reminder of the old notion that there are two things that drive investors: greed and fear. And before the feelings of greed and fear turn up in stock prices, they show up as hormones in human beings. [Read more →]

Revealed: Inside a Share Trader’s Den.

Revealed: Inside a Share Trader’s Den

I thought I’d spend today taking you through an actual share trade that I sent to my Slipstream Trader members last year. We’re still in the trade so I won’t reveal the actual stock code, but it won’t take a genius to work out which stock it is.

Therefore I have to add that this is not a recommendation to buy this particular stock right now. For me the opportunity to buy this stock with a very good risk/reward has passed. We have already taken part profit on the share trade and adjusted our stop losses so that none of our initial capital is at risk in this trade going forward.

Buying the stock now would be a completely different trade with a different set of risk and return characteristics. I want to point this out so you don’t mistake this article for a recommendation to buy the stock.

The purpose of this article is simply to give you some practical insight into how I go about selecting trades on the Australian share market[Read more →]

How a Share Trader Approaches the Market.

How a Share Trader Approaches the Market

The job of the share trader is not to tell the future. The job of the share trader is to accept that they don’t know the future and then structure their share trading activity accordingly.

I think accepting that the future is unknowable is the first step in creating a sound share trading strategy.

Your whole way of thinking about the market is transformed when you look at it in this way. The first question you ask yourself when you know you don’t know the outcome is, ‘When am I wrong?’ Also you can withdraw your ego from proceedings because you aren’t trying to predict the future to prove your self-worth.

The game of share trading becomes one of probabilities.

My long term aim is to have a strike rate (percentage of winning trades) of at least 50% and a risk reward of 2:1, meaning that I will make twice as much on my winners as I lose on my losing trades.

The fact is that the long term results contain a lot of volatility. You can have periods of a 20% strike rate and then periods of an 80% strike rate which averages out to 50%. It can be pretty tough to keep your eyes on the long term figures when you have been share trading with a 20% strike rate, I can assure you.

The psychological battles that a share trader must engage in are immense. And it’s usually this issue that brings most share traders undone. [Read more →]

Exchange Traded Options II: Another Way To Boost Your Retirement Income.

If you recall, I showed you a way to increase the income you can earn from stocks you already own.

It’s a way of turning a 5% yielding stock into a 10% yielding stock.

I showed you exactly how to do that using Australia & New Zealand Bank Ltd [ASX: ANZ] shares as the example.

Of course, it’s not a completely simple solution. If it was, everyone would do it. It involves you taking some steps to educate yourself on how it works, and then putting it into practice.

As I said last week, it’s a great way to boost your income, but it’s not for everyone. And I certainly wouldn’t suggest you do it without doing the background work first.

After all, you wouldn’t drive a car without taking lessons. And a heart surgeon undergoes years of training before they’re allowed anywhere near the aorta or ventricle of a live person.

The same goes for using this income-boosting strategy — learn it first, before you try it. [Read more →]

Two Questions to Ask Before You Buy Another Stock.

Two Questions to Ask Before You Buy Another Stock

It’s either the best time in the past year to buy stocks…or the worst.

If you take a straw poll of my colleagues you’ll probably get half screaming it’s a buy, and the other half screaming it’s a sell.

By now you’ve probably figured out which side we’re on. We’re banking on continued low interest rates helping to drive stockshigher.

After all, the old theory goes that ‘stocks rise as interest rates fall’. So why should this time be any different?

Well, there’s one indicator to look at that’s either a spanner in the works to our rising stocks stance, or proof that it’s a great time for stock investors. Let’s look at that now…

When you buy any investment you should always have two questions in mind: [Read more →]

How to Pick Stocks at a Fair Price.

How to Pick Stocks at a Fair Price

Over the past few days we’ve seen a bunch of references to something called the ‘Great Rotation’.

What does it mean?

The cynic in your editor says it’s just another catchphrase created by the financial drones. These are people who are incapable of +buying or selling unless there’s a fancy phrase to go along with it.

Want to sell stocks? Not until they’ve got a ‘fiscal cliff’ or ‘debt ceiling’.

Want to buy stocks? Not unless they’re in the midst of the ‘Great Rotation’.

So what’s the next catchphrase the financial drones will make up as an excuse to buy or sell stocks?

Who knows? But to be honest, we don’t care. We’ve long stopped caring what the self-important drones think. We’d rather stick to picking good stocks at a fair price.

Trouble is where do you start? [Read more →]
