Investing 101 – Forex Investing

It later closes three cents higher than that. Should we get in? Not necessarily. Because as the candlestick showed us, even though it had a five cent swing from the day before, a long wick was created. This meant that it went even higher then it eventually settled on. That tells us that the pressure to go higher wasn’t strong enough. We will put it on our watch list, and keep a keen eye on it.

Not working on your education – This should go without saying but many folks try to start investing in real estate after watching some 2 hour infomercial on late night TV. Sure, you don’t need to go overboard and study without ever taking action on what you’ve learned but you also don’t need to spend thousands of dollars before you have your first deal under your belt but you should be diligent and continue to study. Study but then take MASSIVE ACTION!

Focus on the future. Don’t dwell on past mistakes, and don’t get too caught up in checking prices every hour. It’s important that you stay focused on long term performance when stock investing. I’ve certainly had my share of bad days, but my Emerging Growth newsletter has beat the market 4-to-1 nearly every year in the 28 years I’ve been writing it. Investors that work day-in and day-out in the stock market develop a serious case of tunnel vision when it comes to picking stocks. Remember, what happened in the last market cycle won’t necessarily apply to the next. Don’t lose sight of the broad market when stock investing.

The truth is that the market is unpredictable and no one can truly determine when it’s at a peak of or is about to shoot back up. This is the same with any stock. Because of this, we can deduce that the market is volatile and constantly moving upwards or downward. The only way to profit from such an environment is to be invested long term, ready to ride out the rough patches in order to reap benefits later.

There are dozens of quick-read investment primers that can do the job. My own “investing 101,” Mike Piper’s “Investing Made Simple,” Eric Tyson’s “Investing for Dummies” — these are all straightforward lessons on how to invest wisely. Reliable financial planners are also available but research carefully before choosing one.

For a while there it was taking a good amount of searching to find good houses to flip so people started upgrading perfectly good homes. When that happens you know it is time to get out. The market was just too overloaded.

Let’s say that you have ,000 and you invest it in a stock. It doesn’t really matter what the investment vehicle, just that you are investing in something you expect to receive a positive return on.

The First and Most Important Step When Handling Your Own SEO

The importance of search engine optimization is very well documented. Without it your site will not show up in the search results which means you won’t generate as much traffic nor make as much money as you would like to.

Being that 90 percent of online searchers never make it past the first page of the search results, ensuring your company has a top spot is vitally important.

If you are a small company there is a good chance you can’t afford to hire a big marketing company.

And luckily you don’t have to. While SEO may seem a bit complicated, in reality it is something you can do on your own if you are willing to put in the time and effort.

The First and Most Important Thing You Must DO

When handling your own SEO, the first and most important thing you must do is clearly define your target audience. Most businesses completely miss this step and their rankings suffer because of it.

You see, writing content is only half of the equation. After all, how can you write relevant, optimized content if you have no idea who your audience is?

Before you write anything you need to take a few minutes to get to know your audience. Who are they? Where do they live? Are they male or female? What type of problems do they face? How can your products or services address those problems?

Once you have narrowly defined your audience you can start creating content that will attract them to your products and services.

For best results your content should be a minimum of 2000 words long and should include your main keywords sprinkled throughout.

The idea is to make your piece of content far more superior that other pieces of content on the same topic.

Don’t be afraid to include links to other sites within your article. Doing so can help your content rise in the rankings.

The bottom line is, doing it yourself search engine optimization is possible.
