If youre fed up with all of the corruption and criminal activities that occur everyday on Wall Street, then youve come to the right place.
What youre about to read is not intended as a get rich quick scheme. Its meant to give you insight into what goes on behind the scenes on Wall Street that the average investor never sees or imagines.
Our staff has over 108+ years of experience as investment advisors on Wall Street. We also know how the financial industry takes advantage of you (the smaller investor) and everyone else with their shenanigans. And, quite frankly, were fed up.
Thats why we created our website www.financialsmatter.com and its also why we publish special reports like this one.
We dont just reveal Wall Streets greed/corruption we show you how to profit from it.
The average man doesnt wish to be told that it is a bull or a bear market. What he desires is to be told specifically which particular stock to buy or sell. He wants to get something for nothing. He does not wish to work. He doesnt even wish to have to think.
Legendary Wall Street Trader
Jesse Livermore was one of the greatest traders of all time.
At his peak in 1929, he was worth $100 million, which in todays dollars equals anywhere from $1.5 to $13 billion. (depending on how you measure wealth). And he did it without ultra-high- speed computers.
He was also famous for making and losing several multi-million-dollar fortunes. Two of those fortunes were made short selling the market crashes in 1907 and 1929.
One of his famous quotes is, After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: It never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It always was my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!
You can learn a lot from a legendary traders experience.
First, notice he said it never was my thinking
In plain English, Jesse was saying, if you want to make big money dont overthink the market.
To be honest, its a lot easier said than done.
The reason is, we count on our emotions to make decisions.
How many times have you said, I wish Id bought (XYZ stock) when it was Or, I shouldve sold (XYZ stock) when it was
If youre like most investors, you have these conversations all the time and theyre guaranteed to drive you crazy.
Thats precisely why we wrote this special report.
Were going to show you inside secrets that have worked for over 100 years and theyre based on:
Knowing what NOT to pay attention to
How patience is your best friend
Knowing the best time to Buy or Sell
Simple and Easy to Understand
At Financial$Matter, were constantly working to publish financial information thats easy for you to understand. And when markets get crazy, the last thing you want to do is to read something thats confusing and hard to digest.
We know that most Wall Street publications (especially special reports) are notorious for being either too technical or just plain confusing. Theyre written in a language that even Wall Street veterans have a hard time understanding.
So, with that in mind, (along with the fact that 2018 has already established itself as a crazy year) we want to show you how to keep your head about you when everyone else is losing theirs.
And if you learn how to LISTEN to the markets (not the MEDIA), youll profit while most others are losing.
Its really quite simple.
However, like our friend Jesse Livermore said about most investors, He wants to get something for nothing. He does not wish to work. He doesnt even wish to have to think.
So, if youre not willing to THINK and WORK when it comes to investing in a crazy market, then stop reading this report, now.
Keep in mind were not talking about rocket science here. And youll be amazed how easy it is once you adjust to the right mindset.
There is a learning curve involved when you invest in a crazy market.
The good news its easy to learn.
Stay Away From White Papers
One of the best things you can do to avoid going crazy is to stay away from (what we call) the dreaded white papers.
We dont want to mention names (COUGH! Goldman Sachs, COUGH! Merrill, COUGH! Morgan Stanley Cough! Cough!) but there are certain investment firms (COUGH! J. P. Morgan) who go to great lengths to impress you with their World Class Research in the form of a White Paper.
Personally, I think its a stupid name. But when the boyz create this crap, they promote it with a mystique as if its information that no one else has ever thought of before.
The reality is they gather lots of data with charts, graphs, and technical terms (that they know you wont understand) about something theyre trying to convince you to do.
They give it all to a 23-year-old Ivy League MBA grad and tell him/her to write a conclusion based on what theyre pushing. (They dont care whether its right or wrong. Theyre only concerned with promoting a certain idea to you).
Then, the MBA grad uses the data to come up with the conclusion they want you to see.
If the bosses like it, they spend a small fortune publishing it using catch-phrases like, We have a new white paper on that
Meanwhile, the MBA gets rewarded by being invited to lavish parties in the Hamptons with all the hookers, booze and pharmaceutical pure party favors imaginable.
But heres whats really laughable about these mysterious White Papers.
The financial industry has outside firms monitoring what they publish. The statistics show that nearly 99% of all Wall Street research is Not Read by investors. (Including white papers). In fact, its not even read by the investment community.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Be Patient When Stocks Are Falling
Patience is a virtue as rewarding as a new love in spring. But suddenly forgotten when a man gets caught in his own dream.
~Richie Furay, Poco~
In a crazy market, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is buying a stock just because hit a new low. Its like trying to catch a falling knife. If you dont catch it just right, youll cut yourself and bleed.
Youre much better off picking a price that YOU want to pay for a certain stock and put in a Good-Till-Cancelled order (GTC) under the current price.
EX: The stock you want to buy has recently fallen 20%…from $50 to $40. Youre chomping at the bit to buy 500 shares because $40 is a new low for it.
Put in a buy order for only 250 shares at $36 (10% lower) and a second order for another 250 shares at $32.50 (almost another 10% lower). That would make your average cost $34.25. Thats nearly 15% cheaper than if you bought it at $40 and its 31.5% cheaper than when it was $50.
The reason I tell you this is because stocks have a tendency to fall a lot further than you think especially in a crazy market. (Think of a pendulum swinging from one extreme to another and apply that to your method of investing). If you bought all 500 at $36 and it fell down to $30, youll be cursing yourself for being so stupid.
Splitting up your purchases eases your stress when buying.
You must remember this. If you dont get the stock you want at YOUR price, dont worry. There are always great buys out there. You just have to look for them.
They Dont Ring a Bell at the Top or Bottom
Dont expect the bought and paid for financial news media to tell you when the markets have peaked or hit bottom.
Instead you need to learn how to see through the majority of their lies so you dont get killed when everyone is heading for the exits.
The insiders know that the fear and greed factor controls most of your decisions especially in a crazy market. And theyll use every trick in the book to trigger both emotions in you.
So, in order to avoid being run over by emotions, you need to determine which one has the most effect on you.
Is it fear? Or greed?
Since most people dont know the answer, Ill give you a little test to help you.
Imagine this scenario. If I called you at 3:00 a.m. and said: Joe, youve gotta buy this stock right now because youll make over 50% in one day. Or, if I called you at 3:00 a.m. and said: Joe, youve gotta sell this stock right now or else youll lose 50% in one day.
Which question would wake you up quicker?
You see, most investors think that greed drives Wall Street. And it does up to a certain point. However, fear makes markets mover faster because things tend to fall much faster than they rise. (Think of gravity).
So, in an effort to keep things simple, the best time to buy is when FEAR is at its highest and people are getting slaughtered. (Easier said than done).
Conversely, the best time to SELL is when everyone is making a fortune. (Also, easier said than done).
The Secret to Buying and Selling is
Controlling your emotions is one of the most important secrets to buying or selling in any market especially a crazy one.
One of the key ways to keep your emotions in check is to not fall victim to the talking heads crying This time is different.
Its never different.
The games the same. Only the players change.
Be patient especially when buying.
and there is no new thing under the sun. ~Ecclesiastes 1:9~
