Finding The Safest Investments For Your Money In 2010

By Kent Jackson

Individuals are on the lookout for investments that offer the highest interest, at a time when the health of the economy is very weak, and the news from the stock market is not much better. People are feeling nervous about the trends of financial investments, and they are having trouble finding secure places for their money. If asked, most individuals will tell you that they would choose a safe investment over one offering a higher interest rate. So, if you find yourself in this position, what other alternatives are available besides an interest checking or savings account?

Today's most secure investment is likely an FDIC insured bank CD, which is guaranteed, in actuality, by the United States government. The FDIC failing to insure your CD would only happen in the event of a complete U.S. government collapse, which means that it is highly unlikely that your money is in any jeopardy. It is too bad, though, that certificates of deposit are currently at an all time low rate of 1% currently.

But, surprisingly, you do not always get the best interest rate by choosing a CD with the longest term. You may notice that a bank's rate for a 15-year or 30-year CD is actually lower than the rate for shorter term investments. And special promotions may get you the best rate for a shorter term CD.

These low rates really hurts all the people that need interest income to help them get by which are often retired people and seniors. It may be advisable for young people to invest in stocks and other vehicles that have some risk and can give a better rate of return but not older people. This is because young people have a long time horizon and can withstand market fluctuations but older people need to have their money available at all times.

Other safe options are to buy Treasury bills or just keep cash. T-bills are paying even less than CD's though, and you are almost loaning your money to the U.S. government for free. You might decide to not invest it in anything and just keep cash but then inflation is going to eat away the value of your money. It is a difficult time for everyone right now with this horrible economy and dire financial situation. - 31970

Less Adjustments with Option Strategies

By Johnny M Junior

When the volatility is going down and the stock markets are moving in an upward trend, you could say that this is the right time to use the condor strategy. The Condor is a negative Vega option spread, meaning that you can make more money by using the Condor when the volatility is moving downward.

Many of the income traders have been making money with the stock market over the last few months. It is times like these that make the Iron Condor such a popular option strategy. With the Iron Condor spread you can make money almost every day as long as the underlying simply trend stays within a tight price range.

This is one time that the stock market will give us the chance to really enjoy our option strategies. When it's not so high maintenance, it is a great way to make a living. It is a great way to be able to make money this way. It is very low stress, and at times you will have a steady income.

I have had the chance to learn a much better, quite different, very cautious way to trade the Iron Condors. I have learned this safer method by studying with San Jose Options. While most option teachers teach you a more aggressive way to trading the Iron Condor, I can sleep longer in the mornings, knowing that my options portfolio is not being exposed to high risk and knowing that I am not losing a lot. While other people, not knowing this trade, have to get up at the opening of the stock market each day in case they have to make any changes to save their money.

Before learning this conservative trading I was doing adjustments almost every week to my portfolio in order to keep myself from losing my money. Now, with very little changes at all I have been making about 10% per month. Now that I have a safer way to create the Iron Condor from the beginning, I have less changes to make. Over all it has been really nice trading the stock market over the last few months. - 31970

Ten Excellent Reasons Why I Love To Invest In The Stock Market

By Jean Luc

Previously, I gave you the first 3 reasons why I love investing in the stock market. Let me now discuss 3 more reasons.

4.) If handled correctly, experts believe, the stock market is the best investment ever.

Studies prove that although the stock market may have its ups and downs, the stock market on the whole is still the best investment vehicle. Prof . Jeremy Seigel cited a number of case studies supporting this in the book "Stock for the Long Run".

Prof. Seigel explains that for 195 years, from 1802 to 1997, despite the volatility and fluctuations in the stock market, stocks maintained its lead over all others as the primary investment vehicle most of the time. It made the greatest market stock crashes to appear only as insignificant blips in the charts. Theoretically, US$1 invested and re-invested in stocks in 1802 should balloon to US$7,500,000.00 by year end of 1997!

To give an example based on the local scene, it was published that the highest return rate of 224% ever recorded in the Philippine stock market history was in 1986 while the lowest was in 1997 when it was a negative 41%. Nonetheless, if you held on to your money for a long haul of about 20 years, the average return was still in the vicinity of 24% to 28% annually.

5.) As a Stock Market investor you will be forced to learn the ropes.

As an investor in the stock market, you have no choice but to read business news and try to see beyond mere headlines because they may have an impact on your investments. From mere gossip that feeds coffee table discussions, news has assumed a special importance because you now have to interpret the news in the context of your business investments. You take extra effort to understand business and financial terminology which you never even dreamed of before. You get smarter and you push yourself to keep on reading and learning to expand your knowledge in business. Maybe you slept through your economics or business class in college, well this time you will be wide-eyed and losing sleep trying to comprehend what inflation is and how it can impact your investments. Stock market investing will make a very enthusiastic learner out of you.

6.) Investing in the stock market teaches the meaning of "Knowledge is Power" and the importance of the internet.

This is now the age of knowledge or the "information technology age". In this age, truly knowledge is power. To most people, it is just another cliche but if you have ever tried trading online, you would know that nothing could be truer. Since way back in college, I had dreamed of investing in stock market. The frenzy in the stock exchange as portrayed in the movies amazed me so much that I kept on wondering what the excitement was all about. Unfortunately, I was not able to invest that early in my life. I did not have the right information nor the capability. I did not have the money, either! However, with modern technology comes the internet where information is readily available at the mere click of the mouse. One can even trade online with just your fingers doing the walking over the keyboard. Nowadays, I spend endless hours online monitoring news, investing in the stock market, banking online and a lot of other things. Very soon I am expecting to invest globally in other stock markets from all over the world - all of these in the comfort of my own home. - 31970

What Is The Best Rate Of Return For Investments?

By Zigfred Diaz

One of the top items considered very carefully by investors when looking at investment packages is the rate of return. It is not surprising that the first question they ask for when presented with an investment proposal is the rate of return. The rate of return is evaluated with reference to a certain period of time.

There is a question that all investors ask inevitably: how much can be considered appropriate rate of return? How much is the best or ideal rate of return by which we could measure investments by? When the bank tells you to save your money in a time deposit account because it pays 5% rate of return compounded annually, how can you tell that you are making a good investment with a good rate of return?

We need to take into account three important factors to answer that question properly: inflation, taxation and the highest rate of return for what is considered as the "safest investment".

To begin with, what is inflation? Wikipedia says it is "a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time". Inflation nibbles at the value of money. Your P1000 now may not be worth much 20 years from now because of rising prices of good and services. Your P1,000 three years from now won't be able to buy the things you can buy for P1,000 today.

Next on the list is taxation. Everybody knows this subject. Taxes is what keeps the government alive. Tax rates vary and depends a lot on whoever is in power.

The third consideration is the highest rate of return for what is believed as the "safest investment" which is, of course, government bonds. These are considered very safe by the very fact that they are fully backed by the government. Since it is unlikely for a government to go bankrupt except when it is in political turmoil, it is inconceivable that it would renege on its obligation.

Together, these three factors will come into play when computing for the ideal rate of return.

In the book "Buffetology", Mary Buffett and David Clark elaborate on the interplay between these three factors. The author reports that Warren Buffett, one of the world's richest persons and greatest stock market investor, declares that the minimum rate of return of investment should not fall below 15%. In Chapter 25 of the book, the author wrote that just to absorb inflation and taxation, you need a 7.2% return on investment. Therefore, "to have a real increase in your wealth, it is necessary that the return on your wealth be at least equal to the effects of taxation and inflation".

They wrote further that investing in bonds with an annual compounding rate of return of 8%, you would probably net a rate of return of only 0.5% (8% less 31% income tax, less 5% inflation). If the inflation rate increases to 9%, then you will get a zero rate of return. It does not make sense then to invest in government bonds or in any investment that offer an annual rate of return below 8%.

Warren Buffett believes in the having a "wide margin of safety". That is the reason why he insists on a 15% rate of return. Net of inflation and taxes, he is assured with a growth of about 8% rate of return compounded annually.

What is special about government bonds that we are seriously considering it? Not only are they known to be the safest investment but it can also give the highest possible rate of return. Thus it is the standard by which all other investments can be measured. So if in your evaluation, an investment can only give an 8% rate of return for your investment, you would be a lot better off investing in a government bond that guarantees 8% return on investment, rather than risking it in other investments. But if a certain investment has a rate of return of over and above 15%, then put your money in that investment rather than in government bonds. - 31970

Looking Into Trend Following Indicators

By Gery Lermann

Looking into trend following indicators which is a way that people will use to invest in the stock market. This strategy will be used to compare how stocks have done in the past, the trend of ways they have moved on the stock market.

Basically a way of watching the way the market moves and investing based on those past movements of certain stocks. Use of not only the current market price, but averages for moving, and breakouts will be used to figure out what to do.

When traders do this type of method they will not be forecasting the stocks and what is going to happen. Instead they are simply following a trend that has been shown in the past. Looking to the current prices of the stock, equity levels and what the market's current volatility. Those are the main components that will be used by the trader when using this method.

This type of method will be used only after the stock has established a trend. In other words not on a new stock that hasn't yet established any type of trend to it. Price will be one of the main considerations in this method. A person who trades through this method may use indicators to figure out which way the stock will go next.

Also how much will be traded during the trend will need to be figured out as well. If the market is at high volatility though trading will most likely be reduced in order to cut the losses on the trades. If you use trend following indicators, price and time are always going to be very important.

Using trend following indicators will allow you to answer the questions that follow. How to enter the market and at what time, the amount of shares you going to trade at each time. Money you will spend on each trade, cutting losses when it's not profitable, and how to handle a profitable trade. - 31970

Making Money During a Stock Market Crash

By Shaun Rosenberg

There are a lot of people who think that we are going torwards another great depression. Is it true? Well know one knows what will happen for sure, but we can prepare for it. There are a number of ways to make money during a stock market crash.

In fact stock crashes have the potential to make traders much quicker gains because stocks go down faster then they go up. So, how can you make money in a stock market crash? Here are 3 strategies that can help traders profit from a falling market.

1. Short Stocks

Shorting is the process of borrowing stock and then returning it. By shorting a stock you simply borrow it from your broker and then sell it. Later on you will have to buy it back and return it to your broker. The idea is to sell stocks high and buy them back lower.

2. Put Options

Puts allow an investor to have the right to sell a given stock at a given price at some point in the future. So, if you buy a put it will increase in value and make you money as the stock goes down. This is because even though the stock is going down in value you still have the ability to sell it at the same price.

3. Selling Calls

Another type of option is called a call option. When you sell a call option you give another trader the right to buy the stock from you at a given price. For this you recieve a premium. If the stock stays below that price the call will expire worthless and you walk away with the free premium.

The downside to this is that the stock could potentially shoot up to infinity. So your risk is unlimited. To get around that you have to buy another call option at a higher strike price to limit your risk. For example if you sell the $40 call you can also buy the $45 call. This would limit your risk to $5 and you could still make money from the difference between the two stocks. - 31970

Making an Income Steam From Your Long Term Investments

By Shaun Rosenberg

Investing into strong companies can help you to make a decent profit in the market in the long term. However sometimes it is great to get a little extra cash flow now.

Below I have listed a few of the different ways which you can make a short term income off of your long term investments.

1. Invest into Dividend stocks

Some stocks will pay out a monthly dividend to their investors. This is simply a small monthly payment that is made and is suppose to represent a company sharing their income with their investors.

There is just one problem here. If you want to make a lot of passive income this way you are going to need to buy a lot of stock. That is because stocks typically pay out between 1-10% of their stock's value in dividends per year. But luckly there are other ways to make an income from your long term investment.

2. Using Covered Calls

Covered calls allow an investor to make money by selling others the right to buy their stock from them at a specific price. For example, if you own stock ABC and it is trading at $60 you can sell the $65 call on it and make a premium.

The only disadvantage here is that you will be obligated to sell the stock early if it goes above $65. It can be a great way to make an income, but only if you are willing to part with your stock.

3. Selling Puts

Another way to make money would be to sell a put. This means you are getting paid to be obligated to buy a stock in the near future. If you sell the $30 put on a stock that you want to own then you will make money up front and end up getting into the trade if the stock closes below $30 before expiration. - 31970

Option Trading : Steps to Success 2

By Donald Scott

Hi there investors. I hope I find you doing well today, and that your portfolio is seeing consistent returns. This article on successful option trading is number two in a series of six. Each article is accompanied by a video, and I highly recommend you to watch them all.

One very important step in becoming a better options trader is to spend ample time back testing. Currently there are just a few option software programs on the market that can help you achieve this task, but back testing is worth your time. I personally learned a lot by using Optionvue as well a Think or Swim to back test my option strategies. Although, the previously mentioned software's are very good, San Jose Options has just released a new type of back testing tool called the Options Toolkit. This back tester saves you a lot of time when compared to any other options that testing software.

Option Trading : Steps to Success

For example, it used to take me one hour to back test one year of trading a Condor in the Optionvue software. Using Thinkorswim it's a little bit faster. Now, in comparison, to do the same job and actually gather more organized data, it takes about 2 seconds to back test one year in the Options Toolkit. It's really phenomenal.

Another step that each option trader must take before finding success is simply trading for many years. Experience is what we call it. The reason that an option trader needs to trade for so long is because the stock market is constantly changing, and in order to see the many faces of the market, we need to trade for many years.

Paper trading is also a great way to learn how to trade options. Again, you can simply open an account at Think or Swim or almost any of their options broker and get a free paper trading account to practice with. Although it might be difficult, it's actually very important to paper trade for at least six months to a year. As mentioned before it's very important to have experience over time, and paper trading is one way to acquire experience without risking any money.

Lastly, I would like to say that it's very important to keep about 25% of your capital in cash. This is because the best option strategies require adjustments, and to make these adjustments, you will need extra cash. It's very dangerous to use up all of your spending money in your trading account. Every successful option trader leaves plenty of money in cash to make adjustments, to lock in profits and to be able to manage their portfolio as needed. - 31970

401k Rollover Options If You Lose Your Job

By Tracy Lister

A 401k is a means of retirement plan granted by employers to their employees. No income tax is charged over the money until the person withdraws it during retirement. A 401k rollover happens when an employee resigns and decides to make changes with his retirement plan, and then reallocates the money.

If ever you come to this point of making changes to your retirement savings, remember to take into account all possibilities. When unsure, you can see a financial planner to help you understand each possibility better, so you can make a well-informed choice.

One way to make a 401k rollover is to transfer the money from employer-funded 401k account to a 401K to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Through IRA, your savings will be tax deferred plus you can choose whatever investment that fits your long term goal.

There is a wide variety of investment options to choose from with a brokerage or mutual fund company IRA when compared to an employer-sponsored 401k plan. It is your option when choosing a brokerage firm or mutual fund company but I always suggest finding someone that you can trust. It would not be good for someone you don't trust handling your 401k money. After all, this is your life and retirement savings.

You can opt to shift the retirement funds into a fixed or variable annuity. This option would ensure you are provided with a retirement account with tax shelter benefits until your retirement while you're also granted with sure, steady income upon retirement.

Another option available is when you change employer and you want to move your 401k from your previous employer to your current one. The 401k will be assumed and will have to follow the available investment options and rules of the new account. - 31970

I Loved Iron Condors Until...

By Johnny M Junior

Hi everybody and welcome to San Jose Options. In this demonstration we will be discussing the dangers of Iron Condors. The Condor is an excellent income strategy, but there are ways to do it correctly and ways not to do it. The purpose of this article is to make every option trader aware of the risks that are involved in trading option spreads if you do not know what you are doing. In particular, trading iron condors close to expiration is very high risk and can lead to catastrophic losses to your trading capital.

If you have a few minutes, I would recommend watching the video that we have included with this article. You will see an Iron Condor on the SPY which demonstrates the type of Iron Condor that can wipe out your entire trading capital.

This is the strategy that is taught by 99% of the courses on the Internet. Don't be misled, and don't fall into the trap. Take a look at this video and see firsthand the stress and the risk involved with this option strategy.

Be Warned about the Iron Condor

As this option trade nears expiration it becomes more and more risky. The Delta on the position can change extremely fast because the Gamma is extremely high. This means that the trade is outrageously volatile as it gets closer to expiration, and again, if you are near the short strike just a few days before expiration date, then you will be extremely stressed because you will be in a horrible situation. Please watch the video at the 6 minute mark to see what I am talking about.

Well, to wrap things up, I would like to say thank you for reading this article and watching the video that goes along with it. I hope you have learned some of the things about the risky Iron Condor. Now don't get me wrong. The Condor is not a bad strategy. The problem that I see is that most people trade this option spread too close to expiration, and this is a serious problem. There is a much better way to trade this strategy. If you would like to learn how to do it safely, then I highly recommend that you visit San Jose Options because they teach the best Iron Condor that I have ever seen. - 31970

Nice And Respectable Stock Market Investment Options

By Johnny M Junior

For those of us who have for long nurtured dreams of holding shares in a company the stock market is the perfect place to start. Investment is all about taking a sum of money and using it to generate more money. So the stock market has been targeted by a large number of investors who are either too busy or short of enough capital to start their own income generating scheme.

The very first thing you should know is that the stock market is a very unstable arena where prices change and fluctuate several times in a week. Owing to this unpredictability it can be a risky option to invest in the stock exchange. Today a share might go for $3 and the day after the price would have gone down to $0. 50, anything can happen. With that in mind you should plan your investments carefully so that you don't lose out on hard earned money.

Having realized that the stock exchange is unpredictably uncertain you must start by investing a small amount of money before you go big. Starting small has always had the benefit of giving a good vantage point from which to observe trends and influential market forces. So once you have held stocks for a good year you can then decide on how much more to invest and in what.

I recently read an article on stocks and shares that breathed a scintillating breath of life in me. It was about attaining a balance between household expenditure and stock investments. As a beginner you won't have that much money to start off with and this can be dangerous if you don't manage your expenses well. Look at your fixed income and make a budget of all monthly expenses. The excess money remaining behind is what you must invest to avoid being in financial doldrums.

Like I mentioned before you must be slow and careful when you're still learning. Do a substantial amount of research first before you decide on what you're really going to invest your money on. There are the monthly; yearly or quarterly reports issued free of charge with explanations and trends that dominated the stock market. Another source of research material is the bestselling books written by people who have made marked fortunes on the stock exchange. To further increase your knowledge you can read magazines on the stock exchange. With that said let's move on to present market trends and how they can give you an idea of how to react.

Shifting our attention we will look at how the market has been performing over the past 3-4 months. One noticeable trend is how the price of precious metals has been on a gradual increase. Gold in particular rose from $950 to $1200 per fine ounce. So if I were to invest in something right now, it would be gold because it provides a good buffer against the fall of currencies. Silver is yet another metal that is worth the time; effort and money.

Nevertheless the rise of shares and stocks can be very misleading. This is the case with the price of oil that has been rising in a fashion similar to gold. But oil prices are more unstable owing to the fact that it's availability is dependent on too many market forces like political instability and extreme speculative activities.

And there are the downright investments you must be skeptical of. These include mutual /shared funds and ETF's. Be careful when it comes to these. Do your research! - 31970

Option Trading System with Risk Free Insurance

By Donald Scott

ICING ON THE CAKE? I have believed in my option strategies for years. I've seen many others, and I know how safe mine are compared to others. However, recently I made another break through which has moved my option trading to a new level. Trading conservative option strategies to begin with and now with risk-free insurance makes me feel a bit giddy inside.

RECENT DISCOVERIES Recently, I've developed a Self-Adjusting trading system which in a few words is "Simply Amazing!" What I've done is discovered a way to trade with nearly Risk-Free Insurance. What this means is that the insurance I use to protect my trades virtually risks nothing if I do not use it. In a normal situation, insurance strategies lose money each month and eat up the profits, but I've designed a way around this problem!

AN OPTION TRADING EXAMPLE Let's say you want to trade an Iron Condor, but you want to do this with insurance to the upside and to the downside. Well, 99.99% of all option traders only know how to design a trade where the insurance will eat up most of the profits if the Iron Condor is profitable, so it's almost senseless to even use insurance with an Iron Condor. With my newly designed Risk-Free Insurance Method, I can trade the Iron Condor with surrounding insurance plays which do not take away from the Condor profits. In fact, many of the insurance plays will also make money while simultaneously adding insurance to the position. It's a win-win situation.

TRADING FEEDBACK My trading results with this new strategy has been awesome. I am loving it. In all my years of studying options, I have never seen or heard of this technique. My colleagues claim that I invented this. They could be right, but all I know is that my new Risk-Free Insurance strategy is the best thing I have ever seen when it comes to trading options.

Before I leave I would just like to say that if you really want to learn how to trade options, then you should consider talking to me about my latest strategies. Visit my website, and I'll send you a free video to get you started on the right path. - 31970
