http://www.forexconspiracyreport.com
After all you would like to make a better
return than on a CD at the bank but you
do not want to lose all of your hard
earned money on something stupid!
You are looking for investment
management advice.
Someone who manages investment
portfolios can give you investment
management advice, for a fee.
And you can read books about
investing to get investment
management advice.
Here are a few thoughts about finding
and following investment management
advice, starting with a few caveats:
 There is no free lunch
 You always need to do your own homework
 Beware of too-good-to-be-true tips
 The past does not always accurately predict the
future
 Unless you know what to look for
 And, Rothschild was probably right about
investing
Blood in the Streets
First of all let us dispense with the old
saying attributed to Baron Rothschild.
He is credited with saying that the best
time to invest is when there is blood in
the streets, even your own.
That is to say when things are at their
worst everyone has lost faith in the
markets and cashes out.
That is, according to the investment
management advice of an old market
expert, is when and how to make a lot
of money.
But how do you pick the most
promising investment when everything
has just gone to heck in a hand
basket?
The point is that you make money
investing by learning and practicing the
basics, day after day, month after
month and year after year.
Spotting
Opportunities
The computer age has made investing
easier.
You do not need to beg for advice from
a stock broker or someone who
charges for investment management
advice.
You can screen for stocks with a variety
of criteria in search of good
investments.
The point of investing is to find a stock,
piece of real estate or other business
opportunity that will make money into
the distant future.
Future income discounted to current
price is called intrinsic value and is the
basis of fundamental analysis of stocks
and can be applied to other
investments.
Famous investors like Warren Buffett
state that they do not invest in
companies unless they understand the
business plan of the company and how
that business plan will make money
now and in the future.
You can screen for stocks in the tech
sector, bio tech, aerospace, oil
exploration and more.
You can look for stocks with a low price
to earnings ratio which is commonly a
measure of an underpriced, bargain
stock.
If you know what the company does to
make money and believe that it is
underpriced you buy it with the expectation
that the investment will be profitable in the
future both because the stock price will go
up but also because the company will likely
pay dividends as well.
Managing Risk
Sound investment management advice
also includes how to reduce risk.
Many investors do this by diversifying
their investment portfolio.
US Treasuries are backed by the full
faith of the US Government and are a
benchmark for long term investing.
Having a portion of your investments in
US Treasuries protects you against
catastrophic market changes.
And, there are stocks out there, like the
next Microsoft, which will grow two
thousand fold after they go public.
Scouting out startups, learning what
they do and putting a portion of your
portfolio in growth stocks gives you a
chance at incredible growth.
And, knowing your investments and
what you would buy if prices fell gets
you ready to take advantage of the
occasional blood in the streets
scenario.
Paying for Investment
Management Advice
You can certainly pay someone to
manage your money.
Demand to see performance records
and remember that if their results seem
too good to be true, they probably are
just that, too good to be true.
And remember that you will need to
give away part of your earnings every
year to someone that might just do
exactly as you would if you pay
someone to manage your investments.
