I want to show you the best way to invest in gold and other commodities. But there is something you need to know...
Commodities are risky. One of the riskiest things an individual investor can attempt.
It's estimated that 95% of individual commodity futures traders lose money. That means 19 out of 20 walk away with less than they started.
You see, commodities trading is not investing. It's speculating that prices will move one way or the other. That's akin to gambling in my book.
Really, the only people that make serious money in commodities trading are the brokers. They pocket hefty commissions from clients that speculate on gold, wheat, oil, cattle, lumber and even coffee. Continue reading "Read This Before Investing In Commodities" →
In the late '70s, Peter Brandt emptied his trading accounts several times. He'd lose a string of trades, then refund his account, then "wipe out" all over again.
But he persisted because he knew he was meant for a trading career. His determination paid off.

I have been married for 22 years, and in that time I have adopted these words as my words to live by – “You can be Right or you can be Happy.” This motto, with a slight tweak, can also go a long way in helping me with my stock market relationship.
The starting point for a meaningful relationship with the market is this: “The market is always right!” The market may not always make sense, but it is always right. The problem with many struggling traders is that they have not figured this out. If you are a trader who believed that you always have to be right, you are probably going through some difficult times.

When I start to think I can’t make a bad trade, the reality is I should probably sell every position I have because I am about to be humbled. Continue reading "You Can Be Wrong and Happy!" →
