Your Questions About Can You Make Money In The Stock Market

  1. 1. Your Questions About Can You Make Money In The StockMarketThomas asks…How do you make money by betting the stock market will godown?Ive only done regular stock purchases and sales before with my account. How do I go about inessence playing the stock market and betting it will go down? Are there any good websites tolearn how to do this? Any keywords I can search? Thanks for any help!So I dont get it... I do a put option on a specific stock?Steve Winston answers:Im a futures trader, and trade the mini dow or YM. Check out www.tradethemarkets.com Youcan sign up for a free daily news letter, and John Carter provides daily updates on the marketshe is trading.You can trade futures using a number of brokers. I use Tradestation for sharting and Infinity fororder execution.If you are based in the UK, you can also spread bet the stock indexes, as well as commoditiesand individual stocks, and it is tax free. 1 / 12
  2. 2. For spread betting, check out www.capitalspreads.com, or www.cityindex.co.ukAs long as you have a good trading plan and good money management, you can make somegood money whether the stock market goes up or down. Shorting the market is not more riskythan going long, just make sure you have a stop in place, the same as going long...Good luck!Sandy asks…how can you make the most money in the stock market possible in2 months?I am playing a stock market simulation game for school and i need to know how to make themost money possible in 2 months! in the game i will have 100,000 thousand fake dollarsstarting money. these stocks have to cost less than $1,000 because the stocks can only besold in quantities of 100. Above that, the stocks you can purchase increase in increments of50! 2 / 12
  3. 3. Steve Winston answers:Your best bet would be to make an accurate prediction regarding a stock, preferably one that isabout to explode upward, and ride it up. In other words, its a gamble, but at least you wouldhave a reason for it.There is a drug stock that is awaiting make or break news. ITMN (Intermune) is a drug companythat has the sole rights to sell a certain drug for an incurrable lung disease. Right now thiscompany is awaiting a decision from the FDA. Based upon FDAs approval this drug could jetrocket this company into great wealth. It could make them billions. (See the reference below forthe full story).The stock is selling at around $11 to $12. What have you got to lose? You only have twomonths and so you need something that has the potential for great gains or large losses. ITMNis currently going up as it has already been down due to past problems with other drugs. Theymay not go down a whole lot more if FDA says no, but they may jump up dramatically.I hope this helps. How exciting for you.James asks…I dont have much money, but I want to know how I can use thestock market to make money for fun.?I am not familiar with the very basics to simply buy a share and watch it grow....how do i do itand where do i go to do it? Who do I talk to in order to buy shares? Can I do this all by myselfso I dont have to pay a middleman? Any simple websites? Once again I dont have muchmoney. This would be another one of my hobbies. Thank you. 3 / 12
  4. 4. Steve Winston answers:Purchasing stock is easy, making money with it is a bit more difficult. Many large companies willsell you stock directly without a commission charge. Most brokers will charge between $8 and$30 per purchase or sale. Scott Trade is $8 per trade. You can sign-up online to open youraccount. Theyll send you some papers in the mail, you sign them and return them with a check.They will open and fund your account. Then you simply pick the stock you wish to own and tellthem online to purchase it. Then you can watch the price go up and down on Yahoo Finance. Ifyou want to purchase direct from a company, go to their web site and click on the contactinformation button and then investor relations. Give them a call and ask if they have a directstock purchase program. One note of caution. If you dont have much money it wont take longto turn it into less in the stock market. Youll get eaten up by transaction fees even if your stockgoes up a bit. Youd be better off doing imaginary trades by picking stocks and recording howmuch you would have bought and see if your portfolio makes money for you. In the mean timeput the money in an online bank at 5%. At $8 per trade would you have made money. If yesafter 6 months by all means give it a whirl. Hope this helps. Find more info on the e-trade andScott trade sites.YackSandra asks… 4 / 12
  5. 5. Are people who complain about the stock market indexesdropping too dumb to make money in the market anyway?Because theres no possible way you can get rich in that kind of situation, is there? Why dontschools teach our children what they really need to know when it comes to money?Steve Winston answers:The stock market was ridiculously overvalued.It is actually very healthy for our economy to have the stock market drop to a more realisticvalue.What is really tragic is all of the people who invested in stocks when the market was overvalued.I would say that the Dow at 6,500 is a much more realistic value for the stock market than14,000.William asks… 5 / 12
  6. 6. Can I make good money off the stock market?Im very young, 24, and dont even have a real job yet (wont until a year from now at theearliest) but when I do get some cash Id like to invest it, wisely, in stocks. Id be very activeabout it making sure to find out all the information and education on the subject and stocks thatI can.Do you think this is a good idea?Steve Winston answers:The earlier you get started, the better. It is not only a good idea, it is an outstanding idea. Assoon as you get a job you may want to open a Roth IRA account and put1/2 your savings into itup to $4000. The other 1/2 you want to keep outside the Roth IRA in case you should need it.Why a Roth IRA? Because evey penny earned in a Roth IRA is tax free. But it is a retirementaccount and you can not really withdraw the money until you are 59 1/2 with certain exceptions.The reason I say "may" is because a young person might need money for certain things such asgetting married and buying a house etc. That more established persons do not have to dealwith.The only caution I have based on past experience I might add is to not invest too much in morespeculative companies. They have a tendency to go south in a hurry during recessions.Actually, mutual funds are one of the best options for people just starting out in my opiniondespite a great deal of negative comentary towards them in recent years. Just have to besomewhat careful in which ones you pick as with any investment. 6 / 12
  7. 7. Nancy asks…How can I make money in the stock market right now? (I need toeat)?I am a student who is struggling to get by and needs to make some extra $ so I can survive.Im interested in learning about the business and the stock exchange so I can invest in stocksand make some money from it, but I cant take any stock/business classes at the momentbecause Im already in law school and too busy at the moment.I just registered with Virtual Stock Exchange to see if I can make any $ off of that, so Ill seehow that goes. I remember that in my earlier years of education I played a virtual stockexchange type of game and I believe I invested $1000 and came out with about $10,000 aftermaybe half a year; my group won 1st place for profiting the most from the stocks and we won ayears worth Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwiches (52 free chicken sandwiches). Now, this was 4years ago and I was wondering if it would be at all possible today.I have about $1000 in my savings account that I have kept for emergencies, but I am willing toinvest it if I can make an educated investment and profit as much as I did 4 years ago. I wouldlove to replicate my previous investments because they were so successful, but I forgoteverything and lost all records of the class =[Please help me survive here; $ is scarce for me but I need to eat and I dont want to quit school.Tips and information about todays contemporary stock market would help immensely;recommending the best books about this topic would be very kind of you as well. Thank you somuch for all your help! 7 / 12
  8. 8. Steve Winston answers:Anyone who is down to their last $1,000 should not invest it in the stock market - especiallysince you need that money to survive. If you played a virtual stock trading game and made1000% return in 1/2 a year, your results are beyond extraordinary. I can say with a 99.9%confidence level that you will never get those kinds of returns again.As a benchmark, Peter Lynch is thought of by many to be the greatest mutual fund managerever. His Fidelity Magellan fund averaged a 29% return when he managed it, and he had ateam of researchers and years of experience as well as a business degree from Wharton, oneof the best business schools in the country.You may hear of so called "day traders" making fantastic returns. Some make decent returns -most day traders lose money. If it were so easy to make lots of money day trading, thered be alot more people doing it long term. I know a lot of people, but I dont know a single person whosday traded for more than 3 years, because even though some of them might make money in theshort term, in the long term, they almost always lose it. Day trading is like playing the slots inVegas. You may know a few people who have made money in the slot machines, but long term,almost no one comes out ahead.Ken asks…How can I make money in the stock market right now? 8 / 12
  9. 9. I am a student who is struggling to get by and needs to make some extra $ so I can survive.Im interested in learning about the business and the stock exchange so I can invest in stocksand make some money from it, but I cant take any stock/business classes at the momentbecause Im already in law school and too busy at the moment.I just registered with Virtual Stock Exchange to see if I can make any $ off of that, so Ill seehow that goes.

Now, this was 4years ago and I was wondering if it would be at all possible today.I have about $1000 in my savings account that I have kept for emergencies, but I am willing toinvest it if I can make an educated investment and profit as much as I did 4 years ago.

Thank you somuch for all your help!Steve Winston answers:Well, I certainly do agree with one of your responders. You experience a few years ago is nottoo likely to be repeated although it certainly is not impossible. You must be aware that you canpotentially loose the entire $1000-- your whole savings. If you had asked this question back inMarch you might very well already have that 10k you wish for. That is how much the market hasgone up since then. The big move is most likely over with. In fact we might very well retracemuch of that big move up in the coming months.How much risk are you willing to take? A little, moderate, or a lot? A little, try CHN. Moderate, tryACH or CHDX. A lot, try SIRI. I do mean a lot. 9 / 12
  10. 10. Now with only $1000 when I say risk, you because of the small amount to invest are takingmuch much more risk than a person with $100,000. Everything is relative so when I suggest alittle risk that is relative to the other investment options I have suggested and does not mean anabsolute little risk. Do I make myself clear? With only $1000 you are assuming a great deal ofrelative risk.Chris asks…What all do I need to do to train myself to become good at makingmoney in the stock market?Wheres what I have learned so far that I can use to make money and protect my money inthe stock market:Monitor MACD, Stochastics and one other thing (I forgot what it was) If all three indicators linesup, you either buy or sell.Cover Calls: You can make money by sellingl someone the right to buy a stock at a certainprice before a certain date. It is like owning property and taking in rent, except you own stocks."Protection Put" ?(not sure what its called): You buy the rights to sell your stocks for a certainprice (even if the market price is lower) before a certain date.What other concepts is there not listed here? Please compare this with your knowlege of thestock market and fill in what is not here that you know.What all should I do to train myself to become good at making money on the internet? Give mesome links or recommend some books please. I want to learn all about trading. Im an absolutebeginner. I dont even have an account opened yet 10 / 12
