Forex Software Dramatically Reduces Risk
Why pick the​ stock market? is​ everyone's memory so short that 1929 has been forgotten? Do these innocents want to​ get taken to​ the​ cleaners,​ playing an​ expert's game?
No .​
Times have changed here and the​ word is​ getting around .​
Millions of​ people had their first investment experience with war bonds,​ and found it​ good .​
The bonds were issued in​ denominations small enough for people to​ handle easily .​
There was no fluctuation in​ their price,​ so you​ could put them away and forget them .​
They grew in​ value steadily,​ and could be cashed without fuss or​ trouble .​
If these conditions could be duplicated in​ the​ stock market,​ investment might make very good sense.
Of course,​ in​ the​ market,​ price fluctuation was inevitable .​
Common stock could never have the​ stability of​ a​ Government obligation like the​ E-bond .​
Still,​ it​ had become a​ very respectable piece of​ merchandise .​
Workers learned that their union pension funds included large blocks of​ sound common stocks .​
And frequently the​ company they worked for offered them an​ opportunity to​ acquire its stock through one sort of​ monthly purchase plan or​ another .​
Various state commissions took a​ fresh look and decided that common stocks were safe enough to​ be incorporated in​ widows' and orphans' trust funds,​ traditionally the​ most conservative type of​ portfolio.
And,​ on​ top of​ everything else,​ common stocks in​ the​ rising post war market were paying off well .​
Interest on​ savings accounts was no more than 3—3¼ per cent .​
Stocks were paying at​ least 4,​ often 5,​ and in​ some instances 6 and 7 .​
When they paid less than that,​ it​ was usually because their price had appreciated,​ which reduced the​ yield but pleasantly increased value .​
Nothing wrong with that either .​
There were nuts and raisins in​ the​ cake,​ as​ well: splits,​ stock dividends,​ extra cash returns.
Furthermore,​ the​ market was coming within the​ reach of​ the​ person of​ modest means .​
By monthly payments to​ a​ mu¬tual fund one could acquire a​ pro rata share of​ a​ massive stock portfolio whose individual items would have been far too expensive to​ buy .​
And in​ 1954,​ the​ New York Stock Exchange pioneered the​ revolutionary Monthly Investment Plan (See Chapter 11) which permits purchase of​ fractions of​ shares of​ stock,​ regardless of​ price,​ on​ a​ regular,​ cumulative basis .​
Brokers awakened to​ the​ great untapped army of​ potential investors,​ smilingly invited the​ small account,​ and
spent thousands of​ man hours educating anyone who would listen in​ the​ essentials of​ common-stock investment.
But all of​ this would have had no effect if​ people had not begu​n to​ trust the​ market .​
This trust was a​ long time coming .​
The exchanges actually had been laboring mightily since the​ 1929 debacle to​ put their house in​ order and to​ persuade people of​ the​ honesty and sobriety of​ their operation.
But few listened except the​ professionals,​ the​ sophisticated traders,​ and the​ institutional buyers who didn't need to​ be told .​
Still,​ the​ effort went on​ .​
Federal and state regulations went into effect; floor procedures were tightened by the​ exchanges themselves to​ outlaw manipulation and sharp practice by insiders .​
By the​ time the​ postwar horde descended,​ the​ market had been swept clean and was ready to​ do business.
The people had cash .​
The merchandise was attractive .​
And the​ market place was open,​ aboveboard,​ and bright with sunlight .​
By this sequence,​ it​ appears,​ some 12,​500,​000 Americans have become investors.
This could be mirrored in​ Forex,​ where it​ is​ possible to​ obtain free software that can help predict future price movements with great accuracy,​ reducing risks for all investors.
