How to Beat the Stock Market and Make More Money
Look at the stock market after May 11th. It’s been backsliding horribly. Ask anyone how to make more money in the stock market and the answer’s obvious.
“Buy low and sell high”
Yet, nobody does that. People are so afraid of loosing their money that they sell low. Many people are selling right now. Why do they sell? For the same reason I stated above. The stock market has been going down since May 11th.
Now ask yourself. Does this make any sense at all?
Of course not.
If you follow my rule of saving 10% of what you earn. You’ll soon have a lot of money sitting around. After you have a few thousand dollars sitting in your night dresser, you starting thinking about how to invest it. That’s why it’s so important to see what’s happening even if you’re not in the stock market yet.
If you’ve been saving 10% of what you earn, you would have money to invest in the stock market right now. You’d be getting a good buy and your money would have great returns.
That’s the problem with people who are worried about their money in the market. They’re not putting more in. If they were, they’d be happy about what a great buy they’re getting.
Today is July 20th, 2006. The S&P 500 Index closed at 1249.13
