Now, lets finish our discussion from Part 2.

Tip No. 7 – Progress as Regularly as Possible.

This claim involves a number of practices. The first is that you should never run on an emotional way. Forget your emotions react as professionals. Before initiating a trade, always make sure that you have checked everything that needed to be verified. Be patient and if in doubt, do not.

The second is that you must always remain very disciplined, especially if you are day trading. You should always always respect your stop. Never believe that the market will change to please you, to you!

The third is that you should never lose faith in what you do, even if you lose at the start (or rather, you should not get carried away by a enthusiasm too big if you win very quickly).

The fourth is that you should always invest in liquid shares in an active market. Choose a share of ACC 40, very “liquid”, which means that there are many movements of buying and selling on to a share of a secondary market, on which you are “stuck”, ie to say that you could never get rid.

The fifth is that you should never invest in the opening if possible (unless you spend your orders before leaving for work). It is better to wait at least thirty minutes (initially, these are the orders of the “Goofs”, that is to say institutional investors, banks, insurance companies, pension funds and others who spend nearly d ‘ one hour before the market opening to the public)

The sixth is that you must not in any way make you worry because you “missed opportunity” on the market: there is always “good times” on the market.

The seventh is that you should never want to win too because you may lose not only what you’ve already won, but more and more.

The huisième is that you should never try the famous “buy low, sell at the highest. Personally, I know, of all people is called colloquially the “punters” A single person who has achieved this … and unintentionally, by his own admission! It has now more than eighty years and it invests in the stock market since the age of twenty.

The ninth is that e should NEVER invest if you know a planned event (vacation, travel, overtime, etc..) Prevent you from going on the Exchange. In this case, do not hesitate to lead (that is to say sell) all your positions and become completely “liquid” (you will not have that money from your broker, or more shares warrants, etc..).

The tenth is that you must be very careful with the SRD opportunities as you do not understand how you use it to perfection: your gain is increased, but your loss is too!

The eleventh is that you must constantly seek to improve yourself.

The twelfth, finally, is that after each operation, you must make an assessment that will be very instructive for you. You must answer the questions: why am I entered this action? why am I out? what is positive in this operation? What I can improve in this strategy? I’ve been disciplined? why I won (or lost)? What I learned in this operation and how do I use this in the future?

And you’ll find that you learn very quickly, by proceeding this way, gaining Fellowship

OK, lets continue our discussion from part 1. Now, we are going to talk more about 4th tips:

Tip No. 4 – Do you have sufficient knowledge about Stock Investing?.
Before “you start”, ie to invest you must go through several operations that are needed.

They called first priority and training and information, choice of investment capital and an investment broker and finally “in real” on the market.

You have to train you. Investing in Exchange can not be improvised. The Exchange is not a casino or a game like the Lotto! There are specific rules you must know. You need all the chances on your side. You learn to master the tools that you know little or more or less well as graphical analysis or certain special investment products such as warrants, for example. You must also imperative to know and control the market orders.

You must then inform you. Information is somehow the “sinews of war” of the Exchange. It is important to know what are the operations that prepare (IPOs, share buyback by the company issuing them, etc..). Do not neglect to inform you. For this, Internet is a source of information especially that you are irreplaceable difffusées practically in real time (in most cases with 15 minute delay) or even outright in real time through your broker one-line.

Tip No. 5 – choose to invest capital and intermediate.
You must also choose a lump sum to invest. In this case, obviously, nobody can choose for you. It may well be that you have only 1,500 euros in savings to spend on the stock exchange or over 150,000 euros. In one case as in the other, remember that this amount should represent for you the money you do not need. You must also choose a broker, or if you prefer a stockbroker.

A broker is an intermediary that manages your stock portfolio. Through him you must go to buy and sell shares, you receive dividends, etc.. A private individual has in fact not allowed to work directly on the Exchange. Whether a bank (which is not recommended because of its lack of responsiveness and its high cost), a brokerage firm or broker on line (most recommended because of its quick response to your orders and its price has dropped dramatically), your broker provides the services you need to go around: training services and advice, fee, various tools (eg trading room on the Net, technical analysis in real time pricer warrants, alerts, etc..) possibility of his orders on the Internet, by phone, fax, etc..

Tip No. 6 – “go for it” and invest in the stock market.
You finally, after all this determined, you “take the plunge, so to speak. A concern must always guide you, the preservation of your capital. In other words, you must always keep in mind the idea of placing what is called the “stops”, that is to say, values which, when they are affected by the medium in which you invested, you must exit the market, especially downward. In other words, he must, before even investing a penny, you determine the maximum loss that you authorize. Understand the importance of these stops and the art of asking. Often, 5% of the purchase price appears to be a good limit
