    Stock market can either break you or make you, the risk is very high
    For Eg: if you choose certain shares to invest and their prices fall, you feel glad that you did not invest.
    However, if their prices rise you feel OH I should have invested in those shares.

    Its a game of lot Risk, Research and Rewards.

    I keep about 5% of my savings, invested in stocks. Made some nice profits, but I also keep my exposure low.

    shaz this is why you lose money on trading. if you buy 5 shares of google at 650 it will forsure go to 730. right there you can make a nice chunk of your $1600 loss back within a week or two. if you think that google is to expensive then you need to start throwing cash at penny stocks and pray that you get lucky.

    Have you looked into value investing? Your investment might recover at some point, but you need to look at the trends and decide if you're in it for the long run. The market has been far too volatile lately.

    Yea, Im hanging on to e-trade untill it goes back up at least to the price I bought it for $6.03 (owning 1000 shares)

    Im willing to wait up a year for it, hopefully it can make that increase then. It just depends on the company for long runs, and dividends if its good.

    uhh common math with 5 shares that wouldn't be a gain $1600
    From 650 to 730

    And reading has nothing to do with losing money in the stock market LOL

    I've been trading the market for almost 20 years now. Check the site in my signature for a free download of my swing trading philosphy.

    A thought for consideration...The stock market (for small investors) is just a financial risk mitigating system. You could choose to leave your money in a savings account or CD which is considered no risk by most. However by doing so you DO risk your money not growing as fast as the rate of inflation. (a very real risk if you have seen bank ragtes lately) By investing/trading in the stock market you give up the certainty of a savings account and risk your principle for higher returns. If you buy a stock that goes down immediately and you choose to hold on to it anyway, you then risk the opportunity to invest those funds elsewhere for a profit during the same holding period. (that burst the bubble of most buy-and-hold investors out there) So in short there is NO SUCH THING as a no risk investment....you just have to pick your poison based on your unique situation. (ability, knowledge, capital, time horizeon, tolerance for volatility etc.)

    Good luck.

    I have some money invested in stocks and I am glad I only put a part of my money in it. Things are not going well for me and it might be months before I break even again. Investing in the stock market is high yielding but also high risk.

    Good traders make money also when the market is going down by using derivatives.

    I like investment in Private Placements (companies not yet listed on a stock exchange) most since they tend to offer huge discounts over listed companies. And if there is a venture capital fund or similar among the owners you can often expect the company to go public or be acquired if things go well. Returns on good PP investments can leave a return in the 1000s of %. Check out this site if you can invest in European equities: http://www.placementbase.com

    Another strategy is to follow arbitrage funds. These funds track stocks that are listed on more than one stock exchange. For example, many large companies are listed in both US and Europe. Since a stock in the same company should have the same value no matter where the stock is listed, the funds use spread trading to buy if one of the markets is too low and short if it is too high. In general, if you see these guys buying or selling then that is a good sign of where the stock is heading short term. Most online brokers offer you to see who of the large players is buying or selling a stock. One arbitrage player is Optiver (opv in the trading stats) who can often be seen to move large volumes. OPV is often for example the largest buyer and seller in the AstraZeneca pharmaceutical company.

    Just my $0.02 :)

    A friend of mine invested a small amount in a software company we started. I used to funds to develop, market and sell a nice range of products. He recovered twice the amount invested, in little over 2 years.
    Not bad, for a private placement, imho...

    I put a lot of money into a UK stock called CGAP, they run radio stations in the UK. Unfortunately I bought at the wrong time, I'm still holding the shares but if you bought today you would be getting them really cheap (in my opinion). I made a lot of money from some RSA shares - it made up for the money I lost on others!
