By: Joel Teo

Suddenly you are faced with brokerage fees and you are reliant on contacting your broker to get the job done.? If you listened to a Wall Street broker the only words you would ever hear are buy.? That’s why you need to learn how to make money in the stock market.

The problem is anyone can buy stocks but it’s knowing when to sell stocks that makes you rich.? It’s having an exit strategy that works and those that have made millions had just that.? Your broker get’s wealthy because he sells you stocks and makes a commission.? It’s time you developed your own exit strategy and knew how to make money in the stock market.

You need to first study the market.? Look for companies that are undervalued and stocks with a lower price earning ratios than similar stocks then seek out bad news.? Wall Street loves to overreact.? This is your chance to make some investments with great potential.? Investigate company balance sheets and watch for good cash flow, low debt ratios, and consistent earnings.? And most of all know when to cut your losses and bow out gracefully once you learn how to make money in the stock market.

As a shareholder there are two ways you can make money – by being paid a dividend or by holding the stocks and selling when their value increases.? Remember a company does not have to pay out dividends if they do not wish too.? Personal preference is to go for the hold and sell at an increased value which is where your exit strategy comes into play which when you learn how to make money in the stock market you will also learn the exit strategy.

There are three things to consider when building your exit strategy.? You have to ask yourself how long you are planning on staying in this trade, How much risk you are willing to take, and where are you wanting to go from here.? When you answer these questions truthfully your path will become clear and you will be on your way to making money in the stock market.

Making money in the stock market is your ticket out of the 9 to 5 world.
