  2. Earning money hasn’t been this easy before the arrival of . You would have to sit in front of a computer screen, making all those tough decision by yourself and in the end; you can’t say for sure that you’ll earn money out of that trade. If you haven’t experienced it yet then start doing it because the registration is free and it’ll not be staying that way because it is getting increasingly popular.

  5. Hi..I'm new in Stock exchange field..The only thing I want to know is how can we calculate Daily Volume's Traded Value and Daily Average Volume's traded Value.. for example , for ACB share price is 0.039 , Daily Volume is 723,246. so how can I calculate value from it?

    It will be really helpful if you can provide me answer.

  6. Hat happens if you concentrate on selling short….. Does the principle Change or reverse? …. Sorry I'm very new!

  7. to clear things up, he's saying that 50% of 10 is not the same as 50% of 5. a loss of 50% of $10 is $5. a 50% gain of $5 is $2.50. Therefore, you need a 100% gain to reach back up to $10. That's why in trading, your primary concern is percentage. Yes, they are displayed for a reason

  8. this isn't really true, but trading with this logic is still important for making gains happen more often than losses. This implies that prices move down easier than they move up. which means the market would endlessly be crashing. but again, this is still a nice way to think to increase your odds.

  9. I don't believe this is true. Math does in fact dictate that to offset a decrease of some percent, you need a much larger percent increase. Math does not dictate that you should think about price changes in terms of percents — that's a choice the author made! The author offers no explanation for why we ought to think of price changes in terms of percentage change rather than absolute price change (in dollars).

    In addition, stock prices are not at all like rocks falling down a hill. The stock market as a whole, on average, move slowly up over the long haul, which is exactly the opposite of the way rocks move.

  10. But in a day of trading, if the stock went down -50% it would only have to go up to 0% to break even which would seemingly mean you'd only have to add 50% because in a day of stock one would base percentages off of starting value not what it currently is.

  11. thank you for the video i want to start in the stock market and you helped me, (im not good at math:/) could you make a video or explain what kind of plan you are talking about in this video?

  12. I have never really invested or traded stocks simply because if the fees. With the robbinhood app I have began to buy as little as 1 share and as many as 30. what do you think about buying 1 or 2 shares with no commission fees? GE, PAYPAL, DISNEY, 1 share each. Ford 10 shares, amd 6 shares. is this a micro scale of a rich mans portfolio? I'm in it for learning.

  13. Guys i got it this is what he meant. His idea is if you started from zero and you got 10, from 10 to 5 the value went down 50% ||| from zero while having 5 which increased to 10 the value increased by 100%

  14. An uncommon yet regular event is when a stock actually does a rapid fall, stays down for a scant few days, and then springs back typically to within @ 95% of it's pre-fall price, defies the model presented on your chalkboard.
    For those who dabble or delve into analysis, when evaluating the nature of stock motion.. i.e. motion distribution (think bell curve), its very useful to remove price from the evaluation by instead representing price position purely as a series of day to day slopes, expressed as a percentage of price… this way $5 to $10 and $10 to $20 (odd example) have identical meanings.
    Now consider your idea as presented within bollinger bands.. and this is where your argument gets very weak.
    Bollinger bands represent a price 'channel' .. when visualized as a tube that does strongly contain what the stock could possibly do most of the time. This 'Bollinger band' is a "probability tube" – badly stated but close enough.. if your price does a rapid downturn .. that downturn is still a low probability event, and the upper and lower bounds of this 'tube' or set of bands .. are still valid for the 21 days of price history that typically creates it….. therefore, the odds of it recovering are indeed much more likely – in most circumstances, than the less likely event of it's sudden drop. From this point of view, a very dark shadow is cast on the simple percentage point of view you presented. In fact, it is a fairly common set-up .. when traders refer to the 'w' action that preceeds an upward rally, in reality often it simply 'kisses' the lower bollinger band and with a day or two, tends to go up back through the moving average and as it climbs toward the upper bound its a great time to buy for a 2 to 6 day upward rally. You know the upward rally is happening as the price will closely mingle with the also rising upper Bollinger band during it's course .. when the price in following departs from the upper band … vissually – it veers away more towards a flat slope.. that is a good time to drop it and find another if you can, though breakaways and continued rallies do happen, you need good reasons to believe it might. For interested readers, I also noticed a very strong supporting signal this sort of rally is about to happen is the bollinger band width preceeding the event.. is smaller than its been anywhere for 3 to 5 months or so… this is also consistent to / related to .. the action that the price was moving flat.
    Here's the classic bollinger action .. i call it a classic form because its the simplest, and not uncommon.
    The bands squeeze inward (i call it convergence, but of course they never meet), the price flattens out and mingles with the moving average .. then the price dips once or twice (the 'w' they talk about) – all the while the upper band .. or lower one .. is moving flat and the band is smaller than its been. Then the price moves somewhat aggressively through the moving average and head towards the upper band. Watch your intra-day price motion in the afternoon to catch it .. thats the time to buy it, and expect hold for typically 3 days or so. This "converge", run flat, move tightly towards lower band then back up tightly .. .then rally . .sequence, is typically a 3 to 6 day series of events. It's one .. in terms of shape, one classic from for profitable short term events.. there are 9 others, from my research, that are frequent … though that view can be reduced to three basic shapes .. the shapes the bands sketch out – loosely look like various animals… ducks, dolphins .. etc.
    So, as I said .. if a price is moving flatly, and the dips 50% from say the moving average vicinity.. most typically that dropped position is an aberration.. and it is undervalued – just to give it a name .. which, statistically.. DOES make it much more likely to rebound .. dashing your simple percentage explanation to pieces.

  15. Wait, 100% of 5 = 5. For 5 to reach 10 isn't that 200%? 200% of 5 = 10.

  16. I am a beginner and would like to begin trading penny stocks. Do you teach? If not what do you recommend to get started?

  17. You're completely correct, no doubt about that, very simple math. But I guess I find this useless because I'm looking at the value of the stock, not the chart to figure out my G/L $. I buy a stock for 10, I sell it for anything under 10, I'm down $. If it goes down under 10 to 5, but I don't sell, I hold, and it goes back up (always does, can take time but it does) and goes to 10, I sell to make $0, maybe actually loose some if you pay commission fee's.

    I guess the rule of thumb is, don't invest an amount of money that you can't live without for 1 year. If you invest 10K and it takes a dump on you, be prepared to keep that money invested until it rises. If not, take your loss (assuming you also invested with the intention to lose) learn from your mistake, and trade another security. It's a game.
