This is my idea of heaven, trading stocks from home and making a comfortable living. Is it possible?  There will be plenty of enthusiastic home traders that will no doubt agree that it is and who are already make a good living from trading stocks and commodities. There must be thousands of individuals who have put their kids through college or university by profiting through the markets. I haven’t been near stocks since the late 80s; in fact I remember getting out just before Black Monday in 87. Ever since then I am very reluctant to go back, I count myself lucky that I didn’t lose my shirt.

Today’s Trading Conditions

Today’s markets can be quite as volatile as they were in the late eighties but with today’s intelligent trading software you can set all kinds of buy or sell limits. So you can safely trade with peace of mind, in all kinds of stocks and commodities, as long as you don’t go beyond your limits. It’s important to have all the latest up to the minute financial data and there are numerous online services available. Two of these trading sites are WizeTrade and eToro, both have excellent subscription options and are choc full of interactive trading tools and free downloads.

Both of the above sites have excellent training courses that will guide you carefully through the different trading options available. I don’t presume to say that trading stocks is for everyone, but I would definitely consider using it as an added revenue stream. If you take a closer look at your pension or any equity plan that you own then you are already part of the stock market. The big advantage of online trading is freedom to make informed decisions on where your money gets invested. If you are new to trading stocks be sure to tread carefully and read the training manuals.

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
A lot's been said about directories and how they can benefit your blog or website, but more importantly, are the claims about benefits feasible or accurate? Personally I feel that the vast majority of web directories are ineffective. There are plenty of so called auto directory submitters that will spread your URL far and wide to thousands of directories, but a lot of the directories are so obscure that nobody has ever heard of them. If you ARE going through the same process of submitting your blog or website to thousands… Continue reading this article

Free Stuff

Probably one of the most misused words in the English language today is the word “Free.” When you hear the word “free” what is the first thought that comes to mind? Probably phrases such as “What’s the catch?” “You can’t get something for nothing.” or “It’s probably a scam.” It’s a shame that because of gimmicks and fine line print offers that the word “free” only… Continue reading this article
A broad metal chain.
Using email to send out reciprocal link request maybe something of the past. Some website site owners have turned to software to request these reciprocal links. The email generated by the software basically consists of robotic phrases and is a big turn off to the email recipient. It either ends up in the bin or spam folder. I am sure that you have received something similar before and therefore it is not a good idea to make… Continue reading this article
