3 Tips On How To Be An Expert Investor! 

It may seem that on some days you are not informed enough to make your own investment decisions. But this is not that case. There is lots to learn about the complexity of the stockmarket, to ensure you make the most from your experience as an investor. But sometimes its might be better to seek the help of the services of a financial adviser first. 

Can an expert financial adviser really help you? Well, yes and no. However you have to remember there are people in the know who have certain knowledge and in the end, would you learn from someone who has been trading for 6 months, or someone who has been  in and around the industry for their entire adult life. 
There is no fast track way to wealth in the stock market. However if your purpose is to be a really good investor. You must spend hours each day, watching, studying and putting your mind to the test. You can get really good with the flows, and the rhythm of the stock market if you just spend 1 hour per day just watching. Do this for long enough and you could become an adviser yourself. 

The main aim as a novice investor is just to survive your first year. As the failure rate of newbies sits around 90% they usually think a few button presses is going to make them instantly wealthy on the stock market. But, you will soon find out this is not the case. You need to be realistic, set goal, and most of all set out to have your own clear defined trading plan, that you stick to like glue as you start to navigate your way around the markets.

Being a good investor is not buying the first stock you see, walking away from the screen only to return a day or so later, and seeing yourself become a millionaire. Some of the smartest millionaire traders spend weeks, maybe months investigating a stock, or bond and then making sure they have their due diligence right. Then they will go through a strict set of guidelines to ensure they have it right. It is said the average smart investor, or someone who has become rich by means of the stock market personally. They usually sit down, and do not come up with reasons on why they should be in a stock. They will sit down with themselves each week and come up with reasons why they should not be in a stock. 

You have to remember the risks are huge in any market. Anything can happen and any given point. IF you think the stock market is going to skyrocket each weeks, without sell offs and draw downs and horrific news driven events think again. 

In the end you have to remember, you are the one out there monitoring how the stocks are performing and making strategies on how to make the values of yours increase. You do not need an "expert" to tell you that, you yourself can be the expert, though it may seem strange to you at first, but you will definitely get a hand on it with time.

Bitcoin holds above $1,000 as traders fret about the cryptocurrency’s potential ‘fork’

Bitcoin holds above $1,000 as traders fret about the cryptocurrency’s potential ‘fork’

"Bitcoin holds above $1,000 as traders fret about the cryptocurrency’s potential ‘fork’" 

in the news Bitcoin holds above $1,000 as traders fret about the cryptocurrency’s potential ‘fork’? What this all about..... See below. 


Sentiment Trader can see Bitcoin has had a rough ride in the past few days after hitting record highs, then dipping below $1,000 and now just holding steady, as traders ponder the future of the underlying technology behind the cyrptocurrency.

On March 10, bitcoin hit a high of $1,325.81, but dipped to around $944 on Saturday. The price has recovered somewhat and was trading at around $1,049.20 at the time of publication. The recent volatility is due to a number of factors:

The rejection by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of an exchange-traded fund (ETF) proposed by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss
Chinese authorities forcing bitcoin exchanges to halt withdrawals of the virtual currency

Concern of the future of the underlying technology of bitcoin

This last point refers to a potential bitcoin "fork" which would result in the emergence of two cryptocurrencies – one known as Bitcoin and one known as Bitcoin Unlimited. For a full explanation of this debate,

The bitcoin chart might be going to the high hundreds soon, see the chart This is quite interesting. 

Bitcoin holds above $1,000 as traders fret about the cryptocurrency’s potential ‘fork’

In the last seven days, 54.7 percent of trades on one major exchange called Bitfinex have been to sell bitcoin. The other 45.3 percent have been to buy. At the same time, from bitcoin's all-time high on March 10 to midday on March 23, the number of short positions on the Bitfinex exchange were up 18.9 percent, hitting levels not seen since February 17. Short positions refer to people betting against a price rise in bitcoin.

Jason Hamilton, a bitcoin trader in the U.S., told reporters that the long-term supporting trend line for bitcoin is around $735, and that bitcoin is in a bubble right now. He said that a potential upcoming fork, as well as the rejection of the ETF and tighter regulation in China, is the reason he is shorting the digital currency.

"All these reasons are the catalysts it needs for the bubble to burst and the long term trend line to be revisited,"

why is the stock market selling off today ?

Well it finally happened, just as we have been telling our members..... the Dow and S&P post first 1% fall in 5 months as banks tumble, health care reform worries remain

U.S. equities posted their worst day of the year Tuesday as banks faced pressure from falling yields, while investors turned their eyes to a key House vote.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell around 240 points, with Goldman Sachs contributing the lion's share of the losses. The S&P 500 dropped 1.2 percent, with financials falling more than 2.5 percent to lead decliners. The indexes were also posted their first decline of at least 1 percent since October.

The SPDR S&P Bank ETF (KBE) and the Regional Banking ETF (KRE) both fell more than 4.5 percent.

The small-cap Russell 2000 underperfomed, falling around 2 percent.

Retail stocks also took a hit Tuesday, as the SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) dropped nearly 2 percent after Rep. Kevin Brady, the Republicans' chief tax writer in the House, warned  border adjustment tax will probably appear in the final tax reform plan.

I keep having people write to me and emailing me saying WE ARE NEVER GOING DOWN AGAIN!....I wonder what these investors are thinking today, they might go to bed a little worried tonight.

Since President Donald Trump's victory last November, expectations for tax reform, deregulation and more government spending have increased dramatically. That said, the Trump administration indicated that health care reform would take place ahead of tax reform.

"If those become bigger fights and everything gets watered down, that could be a disappointment," said Alpine's Spellman.

House Republicans are expected to vote on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Acton Thursday.

"If we can't get health care reform soon, that doesn't mean we won't get tax reform. It just means it will come later, but the market is not priced in for that. But things are a little tense now it seems.

The Freedom Caucus, a key group of House Republicans, threatened to issue a formal statement of opposition to the Obamacare replacement bill, which would delay the vote, unless the language in the bill changes dramatically.


Well, not really, but we must say, the S&P sold off quite hard today! It has investors PANICING, and this is the first DAY down more than 1% in 2017. Brace yourself!!! This is quite interesting, have a look at the chart below. 

 Stocks were flying high after Trump took office.

Wall Street also focused on the oil market as crude prices briefly rebounded on the possibility of an OPEC supply cut extension.

"If that comes to fruition, that would be a huge plus," said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at First Standard Financial. "I think the rebalancing in the market is going to take place in the next few months."

Energy is the worst-performing sector this year, falling around 8 percent.

On the data front, fourth-quarter current account figures showed the deficit fell, hitting its lowest level in more than a year, as an increase in the primary income surplus offset a soybean-driven drop in exports.

Will this be the start of something bigger, or is this just a DIP that needs to be bought!?  -    Source : Cnbc.
