1. Buy based on chat forums small talk 2. Sharetip websites 3. Hot tips ..The best jobs are NEVER advertised ..The best property deals are GONE before it gets to the Classifieds .. The real gems on the JSE are never spoken about! I have experienced this, searched many websites etc, not much said about these gems, yet their prices steadly grow.. Anyway just my thoughts!
WELL SAID. All the stuff out there is all junk. Study a technical analysis course. Do your own technical analysis and have plenty of capital before you start trading. And please do not trade with another mans opinion.
U are entitled to your veiw which i respect,as long as u respect others that might hold the exact opposite veiw....If u read the RULES by which we are goverened on this forum u will see that we are not allowed to give direct tips....That is why i always declare my interest and see if any one else shares my veiw.....PERSONALLY i don't believe that every one on the forum is out to hoodwink me!....I also enjoy the chit chat especially on a bad day in which we all suffer....I do not take a cynical veiw of life in general and feel we all have something to contribute to make our planet a better place as we all have to share it.
There is a psychological principle called "target fixation". This means that one achieves what one concentrates on, even if you are trying to avoid it. Two well-known examples: (a) a motorcyclist may look at a tree next to a curve on the road, concentrate on it with a view to avoiding it, and then end up crashing into it; (b) a person with an alcoholic parent may see throughout their childhood what their parent is like when drunk, resolve to not be like that, and then become an alcoholic when older. Now, in a novel application of this "target fixation" principle to online trading, if we fixate on the possibility of losing money - even if we concentrate on the topic in order to avoid doing it - we may in fact end up doing just what we are trying to avoid. Thus anyone who reads a thread with a negative topic like this may be setting themselves up for a loss. Naturally the more one ponders ideas from such a thread, or even contributes to such a thread, the greater the chance that one will fall into the "target fixation" trap. The bottom line is that I've done myself a disservice by writing this, and you've all done yourselves a disservice by reading it. We should rather have spent our time debating positive topics such as "how to double your money in a month".
