Stock Market Help

Investors in the Stock Market, and especially Option Traders, want to find a 'Trend' to latch onto and ride it for profit.
Buy a stock that is going up and tag along.

Last week a major Stock Market Up-Trend began.

Billions of Dollars are going to be invested in American Stocks. This will cause those stocks to go up in value over the next years.

No, it is not the Government Bailout.

The Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett, the world's most successful investor and Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, the most successful investment company, said he is committing his entire personal portfolio to buying American stocks.

If the most successful investor in history is going to spend all of his own money to do something, it might be a good idea to find out what it is, and tag along.

Just GOOGLE: Warren Buffett ( warren Buffett - Google Search )
and Berkshire Hathaway ( Berkshire Hathaway - Google Search )

Warren's companies are listed on the boards as BRKA and BRKB.

I think Warren's basic idea is buy low, sell high. As things came down over the past weeks he called the problems an "economic pearl harbor" (more here...), but then bought $5 Billion in Goldman Sachs, which some say was a result of the impending government bailout at that time. Goldman Sachs was at a bargain, and Warren and put an influx of money into a market to impact an area for his benefit too.

I would also point out that Warren isn't investing in all US companies, but in the ones that he sees value in.

Or loose all your money by buying high, selling low. Where's that "financial guru" from CNBC that was telling people to sell everything they had in the stock market?

Biggest thing to do in times of economic turmoil, especially if you have a diversified portfolio...

DO NOT SELL!

Do not fall to the panic and try to gain whatever profit you can. The market always goes up after it goes down, no matter how far down it goes. And if you wait out the "recession" then you'll come out better than most.

Plus, having items and commodities is inflation proof. Having cash can quickly get worthless if inflation hits big.

If I had not cashed out the balance of my 401k in January, I would have taken a larger hit on it's value than the taxes and penalty provided. I have just this last week started to move toward funding it again. The market may not have bottomed out, but it has corrected itself to a more historically reasonable level in a very short time. It is unlikely to see similarly huge losses going forward.
