Nobody likes losses. But as a trader, they are part of our lives. So what do you do when the first couple of trades are losing trades? Should you stop trading for the day?
No...absolutely not.. We should learn form our mistakes. We should start to analyze where did we anticipate wrong? why did we sell at a such a lower price? was that movement of ours correct at that point of time?
We learn many things only when we loose few trades. Its absolutely doesnt mean that we should wantedly loose trades. It only means when we loose, we need to learn.
we should look out for ways to trade. We should trade with paper currency on different trading platforms and on different instruments. Only then we will gain knowledge, experience, patience, we will understand the strategy..
Good luck traders.

Cisco's discouraging outlook has dragged the Wall Street lower. Cisco reversed the gains and its earnings were dull.
But most of the investors viewed Cisco's problems as company-specific.
Tech bellwether Cisco Systems lost its market value in frenzied trading, a day when a gloomy revenue outlook left investors jittery, and some brokerages downgraded the stock.
yes Cisco news has driven the US stocks to end up lower...but I think its to do with a company and it should not bother (impact) other stocks...

I think when compared to currencies...trading commodities is better. I view commodity market as a safer place than forex. Speculations and fluctuations drive forex market to a highly riskier place to be in...
My fellow traders at gnutrade say that they both are same provided you play the trades with knack....
mmm....just thinking to try forex market at a full length...

But the latest in news, happening in news is all about equities. Equities and the dollar have formed an inverse relationship, so as the dollar drops, equities often advance. Growing speculations that the Fed would extend monetary easing at its next meeting in November has pressured the dollar while boosting equities.

If we are buying stocks, then timing is very important. Timing stock market investments affects the value of the stocks that are bought or sold in the market. Market timing affects the profit returns of a buyer or a seller in the stock market. It is also a method of strategic importance in the stock market. Market timing is attributed to logic and can become an acquired skill. It is a skill that can be a strength to a person who participates in the market, whether as an investor, or as a stock broker who knows how to play with stock market timing.
Market timing determines whether a stock seller or a buyer would benefit monetarily or otherwise from his purchases or sales. Most stock holders hold their stocks up and wait for the value to increase. When the value of these stocks increase in the market, this is the time when they plan to sell because it is at this time that profits are projected to be high.
However, peaks and lows in the stock markets are unpredictable and irrational. But this does not mean that timing stock market investments is not good. They are good, provided you analyze the timing pattern.
hi friends !!
I have been continuously observing wall street this week and it is down for one or the other reason.
Today as banks in US performed terrifically bad so the
are down... And also few dared to place bets ahead of key companies' results which are due to release later this week.
for more reasons..you can check out gnutrade market talk section...

Im a trader by profession...and when I was a novice...I did not know where to invest in? when to invest in? but wanted to earn loads of money. I had a zeal, I had a passion to win all the trades and make money quickly. But stock-market is a different world altogether.
I have learnt many a things in my career as a trader. I lost many trades due to lack of experience, lack of wise thinking, lack of home work and lack of good advice. Many people out there will only try to degrade you, they would like to see our downfall. They would be more interested in our downgrading pattern.
I lost few of my trades because I have listened to few people who guided me in a opposite direction....and thus lost my money.
So friends.....always trust only your experience, trust only your instinct......because even if you lose, you will not blame anybody..
good luck traders

Forbes has recently listed out the 400 richest people in the world and Ron Baron is the one who is listed as number 306 among other billionaires. Ron Baron, a billionaire said in an interview that "save and invest and invest and save" is the mantra that he follows. He said invest in small and mid cap companies and in those business who believe in investing saving.
I learnt from Ron that we should not judge people and businesses and we should have faith in other's business and their foresight. "Build a brand. Building a brand is possible with repititive advertising and also maintaining the brand."
Ron said that stocks are cheap now when compared to earlier as people are afraid to invest in them and Bonds are right choice for long term investments. Ron Baron has given really useful tips and I think I will be following those tips now.
