Investing in the stock market can give the highest yield of passive income among all investment types I know (except having your own business, of course). However, stock trading or investing has the highest risk. Is that good or bad?
Here’s my answer to that question: it depends on who are you asking.
In business, or in life, in general, the height of your potential profit is inversely proportional to the depth of the potential risk.
That’s non-negotiable in the law of economics. If you can’t accept that law and if you won’t mitigate risks, trust me, you’ll have a more painful than profitable experience in the stock market.
Instead of merely mitigating risks, can we avoid or remove risks?
No, you can’t. Please wake up.
So how do I mitigate risks in stock trading or investing?
I drag myself into the habit of learning the basic and advanced skills in stock trading and investing.
There are days when I don’t feel that I am in the mood to google a terminology that I don’t know. But I got to do what I got to do. I am not only curious but also dead serious about stock trading and investing.
Many years ago, I remember when I was googling the meaning of Moving Average Convergence Divergence or MACD. I ended up having 20-plus tabs on my browser. There were 20-plus words on the description of MACD that I did not understand so I googled each of them.
Because I am a solo-flight learner, I enjoyed going through the pain of googling everything until such time that I can already talk about that topic even in my sleep. The thing is, the vast majority of people in the universe are not solo-flight learners. Sometimes, people already study in groups but they still struggle to understand what they’re trying to learn.
Nowadays, you are lucky that there are educators who make themselves available to discipline, guide, and teach you the A to Z of stock trading and investing. You just have to be cautious in following mentors.
There are mentors who will make you rely on them forever. That’s not the kind of a mentor that you want to follow. The good news is, there are mentors whose goal is to make you a wise and an independent stock trader and investor. I am one of those mentors who would like to train you on how you can stand confidently and independently on your own.
I do not want you to rely on stock tips or a ready-made table of stock recommendations.
Listen to this. All, as in all, investment decisions must be tailored fit to the financial goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance of every person.
Those three elements are like the human DNA. You will not find someone who has the same financial goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance like yours. Oh yes, you and your spouse do not have those same elements!
So, why would you follow a ready-made table of stock recommendations if the person who created that table did not refer to your financial goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance?
So, the right way of doing a self-directed stock trading or investing is by having the knowledge on how to do fundamental and technical analyses.
You need to learn how to do a fundamental analysis to know WHICH companies you should buy according to your financial goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance.
You need to learn how to do a technical analysis to identify WHERE to buy or sell according to your financial goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance.
I know what you’re thinking now. You’re thinking that it’s easy for me to say that because I have the discipline, knowledge, and experience in doing both.
I know your struggles and worries. If I, who’s already a solo-flight learner, went through the pain of dragging myself into learning, how much more for someone who needs a personalized assistance?
Here’s the solution. I created the Stock Signals Philippines to address your struggles and worries. You don’t have to go through what I went through.
The Stock Signals Philippines is a paid service. Despite it being a paid service, it is only 40% business and 60% passion.
I did an informal survey. I learned that some professionals charge P8,000.00 to P25,000.00 for a 2-day seminar on technical analysis. My goodness, that’s just technical analysis. Do you think you’ll have an in-depth training in 2 days? Do you think you can ask all your questions in 2 days? How much more if you’re a shy type person who cannot muster the courage to stand up and hold the microphone to ask?
Trust me, you can’t clear all your questions in 2 days. I was a professor in college. I taught each subject for 6 six months. I needed at least 12 months to have a mad scientist level of teaching and learning with my students.
Your tuition for those seminars is just a fraction of the membership fee in the Stock Signals Philippines. Our webinars are not just about technical analysis. We have a 360-degree coverage of all the lessons that you need to learn. Because these are webinars, you can learn from the comfort of, wherever you are, actually.
In addition to that, you can use our forum to ask as many questions as you like for as long as your membership remains active.
Your membership fee with the Stock Signals Philippines is a no brainer. You’re paying less for more. Yes, your access to our 26+ webinar videos is just one of the many things you will get.
Our purpose is to make sure that you are disciplined with your trade and investment decisions, organized with your trade and investment setups, and knowledgeable with why you do what you do and how you do it.
