Incorporating Diversification Into Your Investment Strategies

The economy in general stinks and no matter what the news channels say people are still worried about whether they will have a job in the next six months. Some people have some funds saved up and want to create some more income but how do you wade through all of the get rich while sitting in your underwear job scams on the internet? All of them require some sort of up front fee to get the “exclusive” information and usually have some sort of monthly fee to keep getting the necessary info to keep making any kind of money.

Smart investment advice has always been to put some money into the stock market and let it grow. Most people are now afraid of what they stock market can do to your retirement, but if you did not have money invested in those companies that collapsed you should see your accounts getting back to where they were a couple of years ago. You can find any number of systems available online that will enable you to make successful trades without a huger investment so that even the beginning investor can try the market without risking his entire investment.

Most stock trading systems will tell you that anyone can use their system with ease. You should always educate yourself on the workings of the stock market before making any kind of investment in a fund or particular stock. At one of the stock trading systems I reviewed they let you know that they have a timing system that analyzes the trend of the market and lets you know when to get in and when to get out. They say that if you miss a trend by more than a day it is best to wait until the next cycle.

They have a stock chart that is updated daily that gives you the top 100 performing stocks from which you should pick the top 5 or 10 that have activity over 100,000 shares to work with. Their best recommendation is to not diversify your self to oblivion. Many “stock experts” recommend you invest in as many as forty stocks. What will happen is that your portfolio will resemble an index fund and you will have too much to keep track of on a daily basis. Pick no more than eight stocks and follow the charts to determine when to get in and out of a particular stock.

Ideally you only want to concentrate on the three or four stocks that are poised to make big gains in the next cycle. If you have more than eight stay out of individual investing and go to any sort of stock fund in the stocks you like to follow. One system, Ultimate Trading System, warns that it is only for experienced investors. They offer daily updates before the market opens of stocks that are poised to make one to five day moves. They will give you the sell signal so that you will get out with the optimal profit.
