This illustrates the fact that it is not a holy grail. Hence we can conclude not a single investment strategy is better than the others, hence we have to shape our personal investment strategy accordingly to move towards the success.
    
Your own strategy will not be best suited to your fellow trader, hence everyone have to be very comfortable with the technical analysis of the market to tailor his own strategy. The technical analysis helps you to find out the clear picture of the company, their organization, their financial activities and others, their strategies etc. The technical analysis further helps you to predict the future trend in stock price. This kind of approach leads you towards success and success alone. A good investor should have a long term vision but he must be aware of both short term and long term views since both of them have their own merits and de merits. Once you are accustomed with your own technique for successful trading then stick on it and make necessary adjustments now and then if needed and over the time you refine your strategy of trading and knowledge then Success will be at your door steps.

Android Apps for Investments and Stock Traders



This is a guest article by Ruben Corbo, a writer for the website Cell Phone Expert where you can find in depth cell phone reviews.


Trading stocks is something that requires you to be knowledgeable about the markets, and if you're on the go then finding stock information hasn't always been easy. You've probably seen cell phone reviews hyping the ability of Android phones to run different apps, and stock apps are definitely plentiful on Android. Here are five great Android apps for investors and traders.


 

Stocks by Dato

With over 500,000 downloads and a solid 4-star rating, Stocks is one of the most popular apps on the Android Market for investors. Features of the app include support for multiple profiles, up-to-date stock prices, and news about companies and their stocks. The app also comes with a widget, making tracking your portfolio as simple as unlocking your phone and looking at your home screen.

One of the coolest features of the app is the fact that it has the ability to sync with your Google Finance portfolio. If you have an active Google Finance profile, it will automatically load your portfolio and let you view it at a glance as it fluctuates throughout the days and years. Users of Google Finance should definitely look to it as an app solution for their investing needs.

Stock Alert

Like the title implies, one of Stock Alert's most useful features is the ability to send alerts to your phone when a designated stock or currency hits a certain price. The app lets you add stocks from different exchanges and receive news about them, as well. Like the Stocks app by Dato, it also includes a widget. The only knock on Stock Alert is that it has a rather dated design. However, looks aren't the goal here. Its functionality makes it worth a download.

Quote Pro

Quote Pro is another option for managing your portfolios. While it lacks the Google Finance integration of Stocks by Dato, it is still a very competent app. With Quote Pro, you can search for stocks by symbol and view news feeds. Digging deeper, you can review charts and details for individual stocks, making sure that you're informed before you finalize a decision to buy or sell. It's a simple app, loads quickly, and gets the job done. What more could you ask?

TD Ameritrade Mobile (Formerly iStockManager)

As you can guess from the name, TD Ameritrade developed this app and it's the official app for their investors. It's not exclusive to TD Ameritrade investors, though, so feel free to try it even if you don't use their services. The app has a number of features such as real-time quotes, advanced market data, and news on companies.

If you do use TD Ameritrade for your trading, though, this app becomes even more useful. It gives you the ability to trade stocks and options on the go, directly from the app! You'll also be able to check your account and view your balances. With its slick interface, the app is both eye-catching but also practical for navigating.

Stock Noise

Stock Noise is a lightweight app designed to be used for quick research. It doesn't load your portfolio, it doesn't provide live quotes, and it doesn't give you a ton of advanced information. That simplicity is its beauty. Load up Stock Noise, enter a symbol, and get the price for it as well as any recent news about the stock. Stock Noise shows that not every investing app has to try to replace your current trading setup entirely. Instead, Stock Noise works as a complement to the other investing tools you already use, and it does it well.

Mobile applications such as these make stock trading easier no matter what level of mobility you're looking for. Cell phone reviews always tout the ability of Android phones to run useful apps, and these are a great example of the powerful apps on Android. If you're an investor, you're almost certain to find one of these apps useful.

What skill is really needed for a trader in stocks


Trading in Stock Market is one of the toughest mental game in the world. Very few succeed in the game and majority of traders lose in the markets. What makes the difference between a loser and winner in stock market. Since trading stocks is a mental game, those who are having good emotional control over them win in the stock market.

If anybody takes decision impulsively instead of logically, he is likely to end up in loss. What most trader lack is, the ability to cut loss when it is small and the ability to hold their winning position till it gives a good profit. Lacking of both these qualities lead to loss in stocks.

The first and most important of this is, the ability to cut down their loss when it is small. Once you take a position, and if it is against you, you should not live on your wish but you should act on what your technical knowledge tells you. If your stop loss levels are triggered you need to book loss when it is small. Here always comes your ego. It will tell you not to close your position as if you will be right. Those who over come this ego, will certainly close their position. So one main quality a trader should posses is, he should overcome his ego.

The next thing is booking profits early. Even though it is not as evil as running the loss, it too have the same financial disaster. If you couldn’t make big profits in the long run, then what is the use of trading in the markets, that too with big risk associated with it.

Be a trader who book loss early and allow to run your profits. As legendary trader Jesse Livermore said ‘ Sitting right and sitting tight ‘ will give good profits in the long run

Trading is a Business


I have been a trader in stock Market for the past 10 years. Whenever I introduce myself as a stock market trader to any new people, they just blink at me and look at me somewhat skeptical at me. The reason is simple. If you are a trader in a speculative market, people look at you as gambler.

Gambling is different from speculation. Playing cards and betting on horses is a gamble. In this two, you are betting on a thing whose performance is not in your command. You are betting on a performance, not on any asset.

But in trading, you are putting money on an asset i.e. stock. The money you have invested in market is backed by the fundamentals of the company. More over you would have invested in that stock after analyzing the performance of the stock fundamentally and technically.

So, here the outcome is predictable. But in gambling the outcome is not predictable. So if the outcome is predictable, then how can we say it is gambling if we trade in stocks.

Every business is risky. The same risk is associated with trading in stocks also. Then why some body say it as gambling. So, stock trading is also a business as some other business.
