Some people consider the bond market as the next best thing to the stock market. With lower risk and high returns, the bond market can be attractive. Yet, the bond market seems to receive less media hype, because it´s not as sexy as the stock market. Stocks have high risk and a bigger growth factor. Bonds can provide reliable, consistent returns, which are attractive to those of elder age, as they serve as a secondary source of income when reaching retirement. I am here to expose the bond market and make it sexier by explaining every single detail and correlating it with today´s stock market. I hold a Bachelor´s Degree of Business Administration and an Associate´s Degree of Management Technology. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Detris D. Brown.

A new approach to investing based on how Wall Street insiders approach the market The Indomitable Investor deconstructs the stock market as the public has come to know it and reconstitutes it from the inside out from the perspective of the fortunate few who dominate Wall Street. By revealing how top investors and traders think and act Steven Sears shows the stock market to be an undulating ocean of money, with seasoned investors reading the waves others cannot. Teaching listeners to think about the market in radically different ways, The Indomitable Investor shows how to improve returns - and, just as importantly, avoid losses - with disciplines deployed by people who almost always do exactly the opposite of what Wall Street says to do. Laying bare great fallacies, the book explains that non-professional investors wrongly think the stock market is a place to make money, which is what Wall Street wants them to try to do. The Indomitable Investor says otherwise and shows how Wall Street´s best investors have a completely different focus. Explains the critical ideas and insights of top traders and investors in language anyone can understand and implement Packed with material rarely shared off Wall Street that is used every day by professional investors Introduces the 17 most important words on Wall Street Teaches critical skills, including: How to increase returns by focusing on risk, not potential profits; how to use the stock market´s historical patterns to optimize investment decisions; understanding key relationships between stocks and the economy that predict what will happen to stocks and the broader market; how to increase mutual fund returns with an easy adjustment that redirects the bulk of profits to you - not mutual fund companies, and how to analyze information like seasoned investors to move beyond ´´statement of the obvious´´ news reports that turn ordinary investors into... 1.

What do you call a bull market that lasts at least 10 years and includes steep corrections and cycles of vicious rotation, but results in a quadrupling of the Dow, a stratospheric rise in new technology, and the creation of staggering amounts of wealth? Ralph Acampora, one of Wall Street´s most influential analysts, calls it a mega-market. Acampora shows how the current mega-market has clear parallels to three earlier markets, and explains to investors how the lessons of the past can be utilized to their advantage in the marketplace. History shows us the ways that investors will react under certain circumstances, and Acampora shows us that looking back is the best way to see what´s coming ahead. He teaches listeners to recognize patterns that can help explain market performance, and offers advice on spotting and protecting yourself from the inevitable corrections that occur with regularity in every mega-market. He makes exciting predictions of where the mega-market will go before it ends and how it will get there. He helps us to understand ways to invest our money and ride the current wave to wealth. 1.

The world has changed and so, too, has investing. The market is shell shocked and yesterday´s momentum stocks are today´s slow-motion stocks. But in the new reality of low-growth investing, commodities are hot and getting hotter. A rapidly industrializing and urbanizing Asia will be demanding lots more copper, zinc, iron ore, coal, fertilizers, gold, and oil to transform their societies. Commodities are it and that´s great news for investors who want to profit from the next great bull market in commodities. In fact, commodities may be about the only asset class that is likely to outperform the broad market in the future. Although they are without a doubt important to the global economy, commodities are among the most misunderstood of all asset classes. Stocks, bonds, and real estate all have legions of followers and plenty of experts agree on their importance within an investment portfolio, but venture into the world of commodities and you are into an area that´s intimidating to the average investor, where suspicions run deep and understanding is limited. As a result, commodities get short-shrift in most investment accounts and investors miss out on some important opportunities. The Little Book of Commodity Investing is an indispensible guide to learning the ins and outs of commodity investing. It´s about identifying opportunities to profit from the coming bull market in commodities. It explains the benefits of commodities as part of a well diversified investment portfolio; covers all of the major commodities markets; what makes commodities and the companies that produce them tick; why commodities sometimes zig and then zag; what to buy and when to buy it; and why commodities are the next big thing. Today´s world is a very different world - a world where an understanding of commodities is a prerequisite for investment success. And The Little Book of Commodity Investing is the roadmap you need to discover where the opportuniti... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeremy Gage.

This case begins by following a woman by the name of Annie Hilderbrandt and her decision to switch from investing in the money market and bonds to investing in the stock market. As investors we are often afraid to invest in a stock that we have no background on or knowledge of. We will most likely turn to a mutual fund because all of the stocks have been selected by someone who is knowledgeable about the stock market. This analysis is a great reference source for ethical investing and for ethics in general. I hold an associate´s degree in business management and a bachelor´s degree in business administration. 1.

Your average working person can come up with two different ways of earning money: they receive a promotion or they work more hours; but have you tried a different method - passive income? Getting promoted or working additional hours can limit how much you earn. But when you develop multiple avenues of passive income, you can essentially make as much as you want! Look at it this way, a business consultant may charge about $200 per hour (probably more than what you earn as an employee), but that is their limit! If they walked into a different place and decided to start charging $1,000 per hour, they most likely will be redirected to the exit door. Every job pays what it´s worth, and since a day has only 24 hours there is also a limit on how much can be made in a year. If you do, however, develop some form of income that doesn´t require you to be present, you could repeatedly generate more money without reaching a glass income ceiling! In this book you will learn: What a niche website is How to develop money-making websites How to use different tools and WordPress plugins to monetize your website How to use SEO to promote your niche websites How to build links and other strategies for your niche website Let´s get started! 1.
