It’s time to earn a living and start making real money
In 2019 Dave Ramsey conducted a study of 10,000 millionaires (the largest of its kind) through his subsidiary, Ramsey Solutions (https://www.daveramsey.com/store/product/national-study-of-millionaires-pdf). This study found that 8 out of 10 (80%) millionaires made their money in the stock market. Trading and investing in the markets is the single best way to wealth…and it doesn’t really even matter how much you have to start with or how much you can save…as long as your money works hard enough for a long enough period of time.
Save $36,000 ($100 a month for 30 years)
Stuffing $100 a month for 30 years into a mattress gives you $36,000. Since the money didn’t go to work, you get out exactly what you put in.
Put it in mutual funds and have just $69,405…
Putting that money to work at the average mutual fund rate of 4% turns that same $36,000 into $69,405. Not enough to retire with, but better than just putting it in a mattress.
The market average of 10% turns it into $226,049…
Getting it to work at the market average of about 10% a year turns your $36,000 into $226,049. Much better, though still not enough to retire comfortably.
Do it yourself at just 20% and retire with $2,297,784!
Warren Buffet realized this early and learned how to put his money to work at extremely high rates. In fact, in 1999 he said, “I think I could make you 50% a year on $1 million. No, I know I could. I guarantee that.” Then he reiterated in 2005: “Yes, I would still say the same thing today. In fact, we are still earning those types of returns on some of our smaller investments. The best decade was the 1950s; I was earning 50% plus returns with small amounts of capital. I could do the same thing today with smaller amounts.”
Now imagine how your life would change if your money started producing at a 50% annual rate of return. Today’s market makes that much more likely because of all the choices and information you have that weren’t available to Warren Buffet back in the 1950s.
It’s time to start earning a living and make real money
The problem is that most of us are so busy earning a living, dealing with the ups and downs of life, and spending time with family, that the prospects of trying to learn how to trade and the effort it takes to trade successfully just seems overwhelming and out of reach. Peter Lynch, a famous fund manager, once said that most people spend more time planning their vacations than they do planning for retirement. And yet in which one will you spend the most time?
The choices for which market or asset type you choose to trade and the strategies you choose for playing each asset can be both overwhelming and confusing. All of which makes it so easy to not even get started. And even if you have some trading experience, it isn’t always easy to “stay the course” as you experience both wins and losses.
Yet however sincere you are about putting your money to work and however desirable it is to have your money working at 50% or more annual rates of return, there are some real roadblocks that may derail you before you even get started. Among them are:
Don’t let these common roadblocks stop you from having millions
Not knowing where to start: This is especially true if you are brand new and have no experience. But wherever you are in the journey, not knowing the next step can stymie progress. So start by pondering your unique situation. What kind of person are you? What life experiences have you had? How much time can you devote to this effort (both learning and trading). The goal is to find a way to invest that fits with your natural strengths and available time.
Not having a system: Too many people approach the markets with a gambler’s attitude of ““Buy….then hope, wish, and pray” for a profit as they take trades. Having a system means you have a set of rules and expectations that you learn to follow repeatedly.
Fear and greed: A big challenge for new investors (and for many more experienced investors) is their own emotions of fear and greed. These emotions tend to force people away from a measurable and repeatable system and put them into a gambler style as they make changes on the fly to try to prevent a loss or capture more of the profit.
Apathy: Apathy is another way of saying that it’s hard to break out of a comfort zone however desirable the results may be. Everyone wants more money and to feel financially free, but few are willing to make necessary changes in their habits of thinking and of being to make those changes stick. It’s almost like “life” gets in the way of their success. Guard against your apathy as you implement your trading plan.
Loneliness: Trading can be a lonely business. Most likely, many of the people in your life don’t understand the markets and wouldn’t be interested in hearing you talk about your trades. So where do you turn for emotional support, or guidance, or tutoring?
Finding new profit-making opportunities: Finding potential opportunities and trade setups is easy…but knowing if these opportunities fit within the bounds of your system and knowing when to get out is harder. Where do you turn for good ideas that match your trading style and help you achieve your trading goals?
Profits and losses: It may seem counterintuitive to put “profits” in this category…but it’s true. There’s a reason Wall Street says that retail investors tend to cut their profits short and let their losses run. Memories of recent losses can stick with a person and cause them to get out too soon, before the big run. Conversely, it’s painful to lose hard-earned money in the markets which makes it easy to let losses run just to avoid the pain of a loss.
Market shifts: There are times when the things you’ve had success with stop working or work less effectively because of large market shifts (like going from bullish to bearish) and also shifts that may occur in the effectiveness of your individual strategy due to changes in market volatility.
Paralysis by analysis: Some people fall into the trap of needing to know everything that can be known before they can take a trade so they miss out on opportunities. Tomorrow’s results cannot be known today no matter how much we read or how many services we subscribe to. At some point, it’s necessary to move forward with incomplete information.
Stop loss or profit taking orders: One issue is not knowing how to set proper stop loss or profit taking orders for that asset class or strategy. Another is not following their orders in the hopes of squeezing more profits out of every trade. Issues with either (or both) can kill a portfolio’s profitability.
Portfolio management: A critical secret to having success in the markets is always making sure that each trade carries the same risk as every other trade. Taking trades with unequal risk introduces an element of gambling into your system as you now “hope, wish, and pray” that one of your trades (the one with the most risk) does well. Setting proper risk management is easy in theory but it can be confusing as you move into and out of positions over time.
Focusing on individual trade outcomes: It’s tempting to allow individual trade outcomes dictate your feelings of market confidence or anxiety. Yet more important than individual trade outcomes is how well you follow your system. Your market confidence should only come from how well you follow your system…not how well each trade did.
