    Creating Your Own Mutual Fund

    Creating Your Own Mutual Fund

    In the previous lesson we focused on credit cards. We looked at how they work and differ from other more conventional loans such as a car loan. We talked about how they can easily get out of hand and mire you down in debt. More importantly we talked about how to use the mechanics of a credit card to gain control of your credit card debt. But you may ask yourself; why even bother dealing with a potential problem such as a credit card? Credit cards like all other types of debt when used and controlled properly can be of a great assistance in your finances. In this lesson we will go over ways debt can be your friend when used wisely.

    Creating Your Own Mutual Fund

    Creating Your Own Mutual Fund

    Credit cards are often viewed as a sucker’s bet. Most do not see them as an opportunity except as an opportunity to get into a life sucking debt cycle. Look at how many people around you are maxed out on their credit limits. Look at how they struggle to just make the payments. Each month they work hard to get their balances paid down only to have to run them up again to cover needs and wants which arise. I am sure how you have heard the horror stories of if you pay only the minimum balance on a credit card which is maxed out to $5,000 you could be paying for several decades to pay it off. It really does seem like an endless financial nightmare and it can be. However, there is another way to deal with credit cards as well as other debt instruments. There is a secret to credit cards and it is in understanding how they work.

    Creating Your Own Mutual Fund

    Creating Your Own Mutual Fund

    Here we find our investor. He has a $5,000 windfall from an inheritance. He wants to take advantage of the stock market. He has done his research on a stock he has been watching. He looked up its Price to Earning Ratio, its Beta (the stock’s reaction to market behavior,) recent Open and Closing prices; He has been tracking its highs and lows. He has been reading up on the company in various business journals. He is very familiar with the company and even knows its Book Value and various debt and other business ratios in comparison to similar companies or industrial averages. Following his best instincts he believes the lowest price will be at about $10. It hits that and he places his order and the purchase goes through at $10.05 a share. He skips off into the sunset thinking he did great only to see the price slip to $9.50 a share. Then the next day it goes down even further. After a few more nerve wracking days the price rebounds and starts to climb again and our investor is back on the plus side. However, stuck in his mind is the idea that he could have purchased the shares for an even lower price and have made even more money.

    10 Best Investing Books for Teens

    Today's teens are expected to know what they want to do with the rest of their lives by the time they graduate high school. Consequently, many strive for the highest paying job possible.

    To Be A Daytrader!

    To Be A Daytrader!

    So people ask me what's it like to be a day trader??? And I'll tell you, it's frustrating, it's hard and it takes time, dedication and a lot of research, oh and money! Then again it also depends on what Market you're talking about, if you're talking about stocks, bonds, options, and ETF’s it's actually quite easy , well aside from opening a brokerage account and doing a little research on a few stocks that is. However if you're talkin about forex that's frustrating finding direction is key but what they don't tell you is that it's very hard to do when the direction doesn't stay the same for very long , but that's only during announcement months that announcement occurs often. By announcement I mean the unemployment rate election of the United States Treasury making some kind of announcement about inflation and it goes for other countries as well because in Forex you are trading currencies from around the world after all, 22 of them to be exact. But I tell you my most favorite thing to trade is cryptocurrency. I mean it's an endless Market that's open 24/7 and has numerous platforms to trade on and thousands of altcoins to invest in good ones that actually increase in value substantially sometimes too if you pick the right one. which is exactly why I would recommend following a professional who is in the know, and basically does the research for you and for that type of service well as we all know no good service is free so of course it costs you. but it's well worth it. I've made more money in cryptocurrencies then I have in the stock market and forex combined. Yes of course I lost mine but I've made tons more than I've lost. For me being a day trader is amazing. I get to do it at my own pace on my own time, And it's something I love doing. It's almost an addiction. When you make a solid investment and then you check on it a couple days later and you see those gains The feeling is unexplainable. I definitely wouldn't recommend it to someone who didn't like doing it or didn't have the time if you have a full-time job kids, and household to take care ofThen you probably ought to look into some kind of automated system that trades for you. But all in all in my experience I've had fun I am still having fun and I don't think that I have found a hobby that can make me money the way that the markets do. Although Sometimes I do feel like an addict as soon as I wake up and my feet before I have to check my computer Or I have to look at my phone and see how my friends are doing see what my portfolio looks like today. In many ways it has created a little distance between me and my husband but I think that's only because I have found something to do with my time. Something that he doesn't quite understand He says it's just too complicated for him and uninteresting because it's boring which I guess to some it probably is but me I can talk about it all day long which stocks to invest in and why Or what's happening with the blockchain today or what new laws they're Trying to implement I don't really care for politics but politics go hand-in-hand when it comes to Trading because if you don't know what's going on in the news or in the world for that matter you're not really going to know what's going on in the markets. I went to school to get a better handle on chart analysis and technical analysis and fundamental analysis and it kind of paid off because it works in all Markets. I guess I just wanted to share my story, I haven't been too successful enough to say I'm successful but I'm well on my way and you know what they say it's always the journey that matters the most will that you remember the most.

    WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE WORTH $500 BILLION?

    WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE WORTH $500 BILLION?

    ​On August 31st Tesla‘s latest bull run ended when the stock closed at an all-time of $498.50 per share. At that price, the market cap value of Tesla was $464 billion, an amount greater than Ford, GM, Daimler, Volkswagen, and former number one Toyota put together. With Tesla approaching $500 billion, a level reached by only a handful of companies most notably today’s tech giants, Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, we at Cornell Capital Group thought it would be a good time to examine what is required to be a $500 billion market cap company. Before investors conclude that Tesla is a $500 billion company, they should consider what the tech giants looked like when they reached that level.
