The Best Way To Do Stock Market Investment

Aug 17, 2007
In a volatile market such as stock trading, there is no sure fire way of continually posting growths in profits for any investor year after year, stock after stock. It is statistically impossible.

This is true simply because of the unpredictability of the market. The lack of an accurate prediction tool and the lack of a consistent trend for any stock only compounds the problem.

The greatest myth about being successful in trading is the need for the investor to be able to predict the stock market's movements. People incorrectly assume that stocks bounce around the range forever and therefore they must be able to predict a trend in the movement in order buy stocks during their lowest value and sell them at their highest peaks.

This is grossly incorrect.

The best way to make money in the stock market is to avoid approaches that rely on stock market predictions.

If you look at it, a conscious action of predicting the market is no better than buying a stock and holding on to it for a long period.

The reason behind this is because there is simply no way to predict stock performance. There is no person who can accurately predict stock movement consistently, all of the time.

An analyst may be able to predict a stock's performance in the immediate future but rarely in the long term. The analyst may predict next quarter's performance, or even for the entire year. But it is statistically impossible to predict stock movement correctly quarter after quarter, year after year.

A good way to do trading is to formulate your own strategy. Consider the following:

* Take time to do a careful evaluation of the history of a stock's performance.
* Keep up with the latest news and stock market reports
* Study the structure of successful mutual funds to see how their investment strategy is done. You can choose these funds to choose the best they are composed of and build your own portfolio from them.
* It is best to invest in a stock that has good dividend and growth.
* Invest in stocks that have a history of progressive gain.
* Evaluate the type of sector your company deals with.

Again, there is no specific and proven strategy that consistently reaps profit for any investor. Stocks are volatile and any strategy that proves reliable today may prove entirely worthless tomorrow.

The best way is to study several stocks and consider them as long-term investments. These may take you longer before you post any profit, but it beats putting all of your eggs in one basket.
