Some traders believe news are unimportant, and news/narratives are always spun into prices. That's false. News are only sometimes spun into prices, and can be used effectively for speculative activities. It should be obvious, yet it's not. #trading#investing
This may sound extremely obvious to many, yet I've had many discussions where for example price of oil drops hard on a Saudi statement yet a fellow trader would argue news was irrelevant and price actually dropped because traders sold some 61.8% fibonacci retracement.
Prices are not magical self-contained entities following their own rules.
If in doubt look at the following on Trading View:
$GBPUSD on Jun/23/2016 => Brexit
$ES on Nov/7/2017 => US Election Night
$CL on Nov/27/2014 => OPEC
$BTC on Mar/10/2017 => SEC Bitcoin ETF
Looking to #invest in the #Uranium space? 🌊🚢 For the average #investor the choices are limited in this tiny niche sector with only ~60 companies left standing, compared to over 500 during last #U3O8 Bull market. In this thread I will try to lay out some of your options... 🗂️
If you want lowest risk #investment in #uranium then best option is an unleveraged exchange-traded Fund that holds Physical #U3O8. ⚛️ In North America that's Uranium Participation (Canada: $U US: $URPTF) & in UK that's Yellow Cake PLC on London Stock Exchange (#AIM: $YCA) ✍🏼
If you prefer to invest in baskets of #uranium#stocks through ETF's for 1-trade in & out #U3O8 sector exposure, only 2 real choices. In North America, Global X Uranium ETF on #NYSE: $URA Indexed by Market Cap📊 In UK, Geiger Counter Ltd Fund on LSE: $GCL cherry-picked by PM's🍒
I believe without a shadow of a doubt, that you should get to a point where you live off your returns, not capital. A point where you've invested so much, that the returns become a steady stream that takes care of your needs.
A point where you only dip into capital for major things like buying a house and then, only rarely.
#StockMarket - While there are #Multibaggers there can be #Multifailures as well. Here is a thread on key mistakes that may happen during the journey. I have been thru all these mistakes myself.....
1. Leverage can be key mistake that usually happen either when we get carried away in euphoria or are finding shortcuts during early part of journey. Even if you need to take leverage, it should be based on your net worth, risk profile and in right stocks. #NoShortcuts
2. Selling too early just because it has run up too much too fast. Till there is a visibility of business potential and company growth path, one should ride the growth as maximum as possible. #StayPut
