Profound Wisdom (in your opinion or ours!)
Buy stocks that go up; if they don’t go up, don’t buy them” (Will Rogers)
“A hammer can be used to hammer a nail, not a staple: a moving average technique can be used effectively to trade trending markets, not trading markets.” William F. Eng
“Warren Buffett likes to say that the number one rule of making money is not to lose money and the second rule is to remember the first rule. We would add a further thought: In investing and in handling money generally, the key is not to do anything genuinely brilliant and to avoid doing something really stupid.”
Clairanna Bell -(a free thinker)- ” Being a ‘pleaser’ is not humility. Being a ‘follower’ doesn’t mean you cannot lead. Being an ‘online trader’ doesn’t mean you have to lose more than you gain. Learn- lead out- control your trading.”
Ben Stein & Phil DeMuth – “Yes, You Can Time the Market”
Carol Robertson-(unpublished author), “If something is important to you, treat it like you may be losing it. This applies especially to relationships, health, and….whatever you invest in.”
Willy Nilly (me before a little learning) , “Whoa! Hold on! When to buy – How to choose – Optimize – Acquire gains.” Pro-fundity, your book and Easy Scan have helped!
