Focus on Legalization

Americans are set to head to the polls, when nine states will vote on the Cannabis initiatives. Public favor, after a decade long embargo, is turning toward the legalization of both medical and recreational marijuana. Gallup polls showed that Americans backing full legalization soared from a meagre 12% in 1969 to 60% in recent times.

In fact, the number of states legalizing marijuana has been rising at a steady pace since 2000. Prior to 2000, three states including California, Oregon and Maine had made medical cannabis legal. But, in the last six years, around 15 states have officially authorized medical marijuana. Also, about 25 states have adopted medical marijuana programs, including the District of Columbia. This year alone, medical marijuana has been legalized in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Arizona, California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada are positioned to vote for the legalization of the drug for recreational purposes. Alaska, Oregon, Colorado and Washington are the ones that already permit recreational marijuana use.

Tax Revenue to Improve

The government will definitely want to legalize marijuana as its sales will boost tax revenues significantly. In states such as Colorado and Washington, the government had collected around $70 million in tax revenue from recreational marijuana sales in 2014, according to Time Magazine and CNN. This is almost twice as much revenues generated from alcohol taxes in such areas, according to ArcView Group.

Financial behemoth, Bank of America Corporation (BAC) had said that the U.S. marijuana market could reach a worth of around $30 billion annually by 2020, almost thrice the yearly revenue of the National Football League.

Extensive Medical Use

Research has also shown that cannabis can cure a wide range of diseases. Some of them include schizophrenia, Type 2 diabetes, post-traumatic stress disorder and even some types of cancer. Cannabis-derived drugs are already approved in the U.K., Germany and Spain.

Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, meantime, is trying to get marijuana approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. In a poll conducted by ABC News in 2010, almost 81% of the Americans believed that medical marijuana should be legalized completely in the U.S.

Fastest-Growing Industry

The legal marijuana industry is already growing at a rapid pace. The industry grew 24% to $5.7 billion last year, which makes it the fastest paced industry in the U.S., according to ArcView Group.

The market research firm added that the industry is expected to grow by $7.1 billion this year. ArcView also said that legal cannabis industry sales will grow more than 200% to $22.8 billion in the next four years.

The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing - The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing

The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing

"The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing" 

in the news The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing? What this all about..... See below. 


Sentiment Trader presents....

The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing

The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing

1. Following the Herd

The statue on Wall Street is a charging bull, and could also symbolize people just being blindfolded and following the herd. That is something the affect traders from time to time. Lets say a stock or an asset class such as gold or real estate starts to rally, investors pile in thinking it’s the golden ticket to wealth. But Normally by the time the news gets around via word of mouth its already too late to make some considerable profits. The longer something rallies, the more keen people are to buy, and that might be a problem, because the stampede might be well and truly over by the time you get in. 

2. Fear

To avoid losses, Warren Buffet once said you have to take risks in this world to get any where. Sometimes what the average investor sees as risk, is just volatility in the markets. You will get days, that the market hardly moves, then you will get news announcements where the market whips back and forth and makes people sea sick. Although a volatile market can be frightening. The real dangers is going to be too afraid to pull the trigger on a trade. That will mean you will lose buying power permanently. 

3. Hanging on Too Long

Its hard to know when to sell. I am sure you have been this situation. You are in profit and maybe in some very large profits, and greed gets the best of you. Once a stock goes up, you think things can just get better each and every day, only to see your huge profit dwindle back down to nothing and turn into a loss. 
This is quite common as an investor. Every once and a while you will buy something and become psychologically attached to it. Lets face it, if you own a lemon, its going to leave a more sour taste the longer you hold on to it, so for the better part, it might be better to get rid of it sooner rather than later. 

4. Not Rebalancing

This is a very important aspect to ones trading account. The performance of your different investments might differ. Lets say you have 50% in stock, and the other 50% in bonds. The stocks gain 25% and the bonds stay the same. You will end up with 55% in stocks and 45% in bonds. So letting your portfolio get too far out of harnd will increase risk, and will not meet your investment needs and goals over the long run. This can potentially put you are more unintentionally at more risk, than you might have been willing to take from day 1. So every 12 month sit down with your stock broker or someone who can asses what has happened and re-plan and re-balance things if need be. 

5. Making Things Complicated

In reality, if you own more securities you take on more risk. With each rise and fall of the market, your portfolio is going to act like an index fund. To increase your profits, you do not need to enter more positions, because that will only increase your time, brokerage fees, and energy needed to manage your accounts. The most successful investors are people who do not complicate things. They have a simple plan, and execute their plan effectively without too much messing about. 

6.  Stop Losses Are Key

A trader who is unsuccessful are traders who usually do not use stops. This basically means, when they enter at trade, they always think the trade will go in their direction and thus in turn think they do not need to give themselves insurance or use a stop loss. Stop losses are so critical because every now and then, a position will turn against you, and that means you need to either opt out of the trade, or minimize your position. Doing so will ensure you are protecting your capital and you have what’s called ‘longevity in the market’. Meaning you will always have money to trade with, and never expose your account to gigantic losses. 

7 Not Sticking To a Plan

The greatest sin of them all is when an investor fails to stick to their basic plan. You have to remember that the purpose of investing is to generate wealth, swiftly without putting your future at stake. If you do not have a plan, you will not know if you are on the right track. But not sticking to your plan, once a plan is formulated and in place is like walking through a minefield blindfolded. Its mandatory in this day and age with a very volatile market conditions to have your goals set in place and a time horizon to know what steps to take, in order to succeed.

One Washington, D.C., nonprofit is doing its part to make President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration the dopest event in town. 

The DCMJ, a pro-marijuana advocacy group, plans to pass out 4,200 free joints during Trump's inauguration on Jan. 20, with the goal of orchestrating a massive group smoke-down. “At 4 minutes and 20 seconds into President Trump's speech we'll light up! (unless President Trump comes out now in support of full cannabis legalization in all 50 States and DC!)” the group writes on Facebook. (The number 420 is another term for weed, in case you were wondering.)

The group hopes to entice Trump supporters who back legalized marijuana.

“We are forced to do this type of publicity stunt because the Trump administration hasn’t mentioned marijuana once since he was elected,” said DCMJ founder Adam Eidinger. “It reminds people that the public wants change, and the politicians aren’t doing it.”


Operating as the DC Cannabis Coalition, DCMJ was one of a number of groups that helped Washington, D.C., legalize recreational marijuana use in November 2014. 

The law allows adults over 21 to legally possess up to two ounces of marijuana for personal use and grow up to six plants. Use of marijuana is limited to private homes, however, and possession and use remain illegal on federal property. (DCMJ's smoke-session protest is set to take place on the National Mall, which is federal land.) It is also illegal to sell marijuana in D.C., but it's perfectly legal to give it away.

Recreational marijuana is now legal at the state level in eight states in addition to Washington, D.C. (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada.) However, the drug remains illegal according to U.S. law, giving the Department of Justice power to crack down on legal and medical marijuana (legal in 28 states and D.C.), if its leadership so chooses. 

Trump's nominee for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), is widely expected to push back against the wave of green allowed to wash over the U.S. during the Obama administration.
