I need to talk to you guys more.

I am not good at this.

Sorry for ditching you guys again, I really have a lot of things to take care of but now since I am back up and running, I am ready to go.

Right now I just want to talk about how some industries are really falling, or failing.

One industry I would like to tell you guys about is the oil industry.

In my opinion, this industry is in the downturn and right now, is definitely a place for forex trading. It's in no way a good choice for those looking for something to invest their retirement fund in, or whatever else.

I think we could all learn a valuable lesson in the fact that just thinking about common sense can help investors out in deciding what to invest in.

Say, since their are completely new and usable alternatives to oil nowadays, there definitely has to be a downturn in the market share of the oil industry.

So my readers, just remember that stocks are not just numbers and points. They are shares in a company, and you have to decide for yourself if you want to be part of that company.

Guidelines for Trading in Stocks

My dad always told me that trading stocks was all about discipline. You can't always expect to get things right all of the time, and you can't always expect to make money.

Say, the real investors who are going to be successful in the long run who invest in stocks will remember this golden rule: Buy Low, Sell High.

Sadly, there are some who don't follow that rule by doing these things:

Buy Mid, Sell Low

These are people who see that a stock is doing very well, but THEY HAVEN'T GOTTEN THERE IN TIME! Call off the opportunity. You can't always hop on the bandwagon because when people start to liquidate, or sell their stocks you will be very sad because you didn't make much profit. It will go down and you will be forced to lose money.

Buy Low, Sell High (Or at least as high as possible)

You might think this is a good thing. Well, it somewhat is. The problem is, people might have done most of the stuff right. They might have gotten the shares at a relatively low price, and held on to make some profit.

But this is where greed will take over.

You could end up keeping the stocks even when you know it has reached its peak, and hope that it will go up even more.

It will go down. You will feel very sad, and you don't think so? Trust me, losing an opportunity to earn another thousand dollars is easier said than done.

This is really all I have for the moment, I'll talk about that stuff more.

Portfolio:


Argh. I lost a lot of money with the IDCC stock. I'll hold on. AAPL is the only investment which is doing pretty well at the moment. I'll also hold onto the IYR. I might liquidate IDCC soon.
