You don’t need years of experience, nor harsh training, much less be a great athlete. All you need is to start. What you don’t know is that on the stock happens exactly the same thing and although you do not have that compete shoulder to shoulder against Carlton Lewis if you have to do against an opponent more quickly: the market itself. When you buy shares or contracts calls and puts, it is competing shoulder to shoulder with the market. The stock market, a great opponent in my opinion the market is much more rugged than the same Carl, not only because it runs faster than the investors but because it changes the rules of the game to your own liking. It has happened that just when he bought shares, the market collapsed?, this is a very common situation and happens simply because the market does not care what you think.
It doesn’t matter if you think rises or lowers, the market will move in the direction that he considers appropriate. You can check the statistics and you will notice that more than 80% of investors lose their money in the stock market. The reason?, simply competing shoulder to shoulder against the market without the training, knowledge and the discipline necessary to do it. Can I make money without being a good athlete? As well as the example earlier, in the stock market you also have a second option to earn money without being a good athlete and with the odds in your favor. He has heard of the Iron Condor?, it is one of my favorite strategies precisely because it gives me the opportunity to make money regardless of direction to move the market. Iron Condor is a neutral strategy whose purpose is to generate money when the market moves within a price range. When you open an Iron Condor he knows the exact amount of money that can be won at the end of the month and also known to have a high probability of that gain. No matter if there is recession, no matter if there is a crisis, no matter if the market goes up or down because the Iron condor gives you a gain moderate with a high probability.
