Saving money requires discipline.  One must be willing to budget their money to cover essentials and put aside the rest.  This often is difficult. One works hard, takes out student loans for education, and accumulates bills. When one finally does obtain a well paying profession there is an understandable temptation to finally enjoy the fruits of hard work and success. Who wants to stay at the same standard of living for years just to pay off student loans. I have developed an investment strategy that requires a couple years of devoted savings. But once this initial capital investment is made one can rely on profit taking to continue the strategy. The strategy can be found on my web site www.capitalistwizard.com This web site gives instructions on what equities to buy or sell.  The amount invested in is gradual. No more than $1,500 is invested a week. When stocks gain in value my web site also instructs in what stop-losses to set. A stop- loss is a request to sell a stock if the price drops to the stop-loss price. When the stop-loss is higher than the original purchase price profits are guaranteed. The equities sold can be reinvested. In this way one can continue using this investment strategy without having to increase their savings capital. You still need to save money but the amount of savings required for investment continues to become less and less.

To get started using the www.capitalistwizard.com web site you must choose an online broker.  Then you need to save some money. One could start with a couple thousand but a good recommendation would be to open your new online brokerage account with an initial investment of $10,000. It is like opening a savings account  at a bank. This is your money. You can withdraw money any time you like. Now that you are ready to invest you can go to www.capitalistwizard.com to look for stock tips. I only buy $500 worth of stock at one time. Every week I give no more than three stock buy tips out at a time. This comes out to no more than $1,500 a week. To see these tips you must go to www.capitalistwizard.com and click on the For Members tab. From here you can find the company name, company description, the ticket symbol, and the number of stock shares to buy. Use the ticket symbol and number of stock shares to make an equity purchase on your online broker. Be sure to make the order type as market. As you continue to invest you will need to continue to save money. A good way to handle reinvestments is to make a deposit every time your cash account goes under $5,000. Just mail your deposit through the postal service.

To sell stock you also click on the For Members tab in the web site www.capitalistwizard.com. The ticket symbol and number of shares will be shown. A stop-loss price will also be shown. Remember that we don’t directly sell stocks but instead set a stop-loss price. If you  get confused about how to set up a stop-loss order you can call your online brokers help desk. They will be happy to assist you. When a stop-loss order is placed in our online broker account it only stays active for a designated amount of time before it becomes cancelled. It is a good idea to set the time-in-force date to five months into the future. When a stock does well we may want to raise the stop-loss price. Just look in www.capitalistwizard.com to see if the stop-loss order price has gone up for an order that has already been placed. It is easy to change the order by raising the price. After following this investment strategy for a year or more you will find the need to send money to your online broker will become less frequent. Due to the selling of stock you will often have plenty of money to reinvest. Not all of my equity investments make money. While my overall profit percentages are positive there are some stocks that loose money. I also place stop-loss orders to guard against excessive lost.  A stop-loss order that guards against loss doesn’t need to have the price altered at all. Once the order is placed it can be left alone.

Another way to make money through equity investment is to receive dividend payments. Many corporations award dividend payments to their stock holders. This is often done quarterly. Profits will be redistributed to the share holders. Every share of stock will receive a certain amount of money. When this happens you will have a dividend payment deposited into your broker account. If you look at the portfolio section of my web site you can see dividend payments that have been received by individual stocks for the last year. Individually these dividend payments are small but they add up. The total dividend payments I receive in a years time are significant.

In summary I would just like to emphasize that my investment strategy works and it is designed for the small investor. The Portfolio page of my web site displays the percentage of gains I have made in the past year on my invested capital. I back up this claim by displaying all the individual gains or losses I make on individual investments. This article gives you the directions needed to get started. If you have any questions just click on the “contact” tab on the web site and send me a question. I will be happy to respond.
