But before you toss in the towel, take a few moments to look at some real results… all public, all real-time, all available for the past 5 weeks as a part of the 5 stocks for 5% guarantee.
Introducing the 5 for 5 Guarantee
With the rapid growth of online trading, the ease of accessing financial information online as well as through shows like CNBC or BNN, and the increasing frustration of many individual investors with their “professional” advisors, more ordinary people are investing in stocks through their discount broker. Investors with full time jobs during the day are dedicating a few minutes per evening or weekend to review their portfolios and enter their trades. Stay-at-home parents are looking for ways to manage the household finances, not simply through frugal living, but also through investing.
We buy stocks to make money… we don’t make money to lose it buying stocks!While these efforts are commendable, not everyone is experiencing positive results. In fact, various studies (and rumours) suggest that between 50% and 95% of individual investors lose money investing in the stock market. The professionals are not exempt either… with many professional mutual fund money managers not even beating the index. Of course, this has led some to become “passive investors,” simply buying index funds and other financial vehicles that try to mimic the market’s performance.
At Invest in the Markets, we’re committed to preserving capital, minimizing risk, and maximizing returns. Whether as an Evening Investor (with 5 minutes an evening) or a Weekend Investor (with 15-30 minutes a weekend), we remain committed to the same overarching objectives. In October, we decided to demonstrate, in real-time, how to make money buying stocks using the Evening Investor Strategy. We called it the 5 for 5 Guarantee… and launched it November 1st. While the “guarantee” portion was initially set up to run for 2 months, the actual trading strategy continues, everyday.
Make Money Buying Stocks using the Evening Investor Strategy
As you may know, November was a horrible month for many investors… up until the last 3 days of the month in which we saw some them erase what were 6%-10% losses among the major markets. As a result, most of the buying opportunities led to small losses throughout November. It was a great example of how to protect capital and minimize risk in difficult market conditions. Now, we’re experiencing the maximizing of returns… with many of the exact same positions taking off, erasing the earlier losses and creating gains.
Extend this approach out several months and you’ll continue to see the success of the Evening Investor Strategy in any market conditions. Quite simply, we make money buying stocks! And the Weekend Investor does well too… committed to the same overarching principles but on a weekly timeframe. Of course, with the weekly timeframe, there is less volatility and a larger perspective… but it also comes with a slightly higher risk level (maximum risk of 5.5% for any position unless a stock gaps down – a highly unusual event for strong fundamental stocks if they are not nearing earnings announcements).
Track How to Make Money Buying Stocks
Our ability to invest in the markets and make money consistently without taking unnecessary risks or “gambling” on a position has been public for the past 5 weeks… and will remain public for the next 3 weeks at the 5 for 5 Tracker page. Despite poor market conditions, we’ve protected capital, minimized risk, and made money. If you’re thinking about investing (or you already do a little investing) in the stock market, follow along in real-time for 5 minutes each evening and see the results first hand, even during these volatile and unpredictable market conditions. You’ll see for yourself… it is possible, in any market conditions, to make money buying stocks.
