Prediction means seeing the future right? Can you predict the future? Who can predict the future? After being in stock market for 16 years, of which 3 years being full-time, I CAN. I definitely CAN. So, let me tell you about the future of stock market:
It will............ either go up, or down or sideways.
I mean, seriously, it can only go up or down or sideways right? Can you say FOR SURE it will go up next year or FOR SURE it will tank next year, next month? Think about it.
So, do you need to pay $75 to hear someone predict about the stock market? And pay every year, jumping from one guru to another predicting the future? Is there any value? For $75? I would not pay to hear people's prediction for more than $10.
But do I have the secret of making money in stock-market? YES, because I have personally done so. Be it stock, be it property. I have personally profited on both. I bought my first private property right after 9/11 incident. So, what is the secret? I shall reveal it to you here. Here it is:
Stock market moves in a cycle, just like the law of life, nothing is permanent, it is the concept of yin and yang, what goes up will come down and vice versa as nothing is permanent. Buy (good stock) when is down (when there is panic, when everybody is selling), sell when is up (when there is greed, when everybody is buying). Or buy good stock when it is cheap (undervalue). If you are a value investor, you buy when value emerges, and it is independent of whether market is up or down, you have no worries whether market is up or down because you buy at good value. If market is down, you just need to hold on. If market is up, jolly good and well.
So, There you go, the secret of winning in stock market revealed. No need to keep paying $75 every other half-yearly to hear all the gurus predict this and that. Or worse pay $1k+, $2k+ to attend trading courses. Save your money for charity better. Or you can donate some to me at half-price, I can teach you a trick or two on how not to lose your pants LOL!! :)
Having said that, it doesn't mean all courses are of little value, but most courses are, they overcharge and then continue to upsell.
If I see anything of good value, I shall share with you. But usually it is not so simple, usually they will entice you with lower fee for the 1st course then upsell and hook you with more expensive stuff later. The silliest thing to do is to pay $1k+, worse $2k+ for those courses teaching you "technical analysis" on how you can make money trading the market. They are just teaching you how to gamble promising you a lil bit of hope (using their techniques) that will win gambling. They are nothing but FALSE HOPE. Seriously you can make money by drawing a few lines? Who does it benefit? Nobody except the broker. That is why the most ardent promoters are usually the brokers or the brokerage firm or those who don't make money trading. Seriously, if they can make $ trading, they will just trade instead of wasting so much energy and time teaching.
