Since month, USA Today publishes an article on their website stating that retail investors should not be scared anymore to enter the markets as they are safe again.
Reading through the more than 400 comments, none of the readers believes this article.
Because the markets are not safe. The stock market is never safe unless you have someone who takes you by the hand and tells you exactly what to do. The writers of this article do not do that, but we from VantageTrade .
The myth that no profit waits for investors in the US stock markets can be proven wrong with our latest Buy and Sell pair on Patriot Coal Corporation which gave a profit of 33.33% in 16 trading days.
We have asked the investors to buy on 22nd December 2010 at a price of $18.39 and since that day it rose continuously. After only 5 trading days it reached our first target of $19.51. But it did not stop there. It reached one new target after another.
Finally on 14th January 2011 we asked the investors to sell at a price of $24.52. This means if retail investors would have bought just 50 shares of Patriot Coal Corporation, he would have made $307.5 in 16 days. A good amount to fill up the gap in your wallet after the Christmas shopping and a great start in the New Year.
But now better stay out of this stock as it is already down to $23.08 again!
So markets itself are still not safe. But investing can be so much safer using the right tool! And remember at the moment it is free for US Markets!
