Is Stock Market Trading knowledge now required to make money or can one still just rely on buying stocks in a trend trading investing environment over the long term?
A quick comment before we get to today’s topic about Stock Market Trading vs. Investing and whether one can simply succeed by buying stocks and rely on the upward trend trading bias of the stock market …
I want to thank everyone who voted for Top Dog Trading in the TASC Readers Choice Awards. This is an annual awards poll conducted by “Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities Magazine” (great magazine I personally subscribe to and recommend). Awards are chosen by the readers themselves – meaning the users of the products and services.
Generally it’s huge stock market trading companies and corporations with mega- marketing budgets that win these awards. But I’m honored and humbled to say that I was graced with awards in both categories for which I qualified:
- First runner up in the “Technical Analysis Websites” category.
- Finalist in the “Trading Centers, Schools, Training” category.
To be given such high positions along with, and even above, massive stock market trading companies is quite an honor and I thank all of you who voted for me.
NOW LET’S MOVE ON TO TODAY’S VIDEO:
It used to be presented as common wisdom that most people should not try to time buying stocks, but rather depend on the overall upward bias of stock market trading over the years, rely on the upward trend trading historical pattern, and perhaps even dollar cost average into the market over the long term.
In recent years many people are now questioning that “common wisdom.”
We’ll examine some of those concerns in this brief video. While it certainly won’t answer all questions about stock market trading or when one should be buying stocks, it will demonstrate why the old principles of investing are being called into question by many stock traders, both amateurs and professionals, today.
