Upcoming Late Investor Topics

In this post I shall create a list of the topics that I intend to write about.  This list is not complete (nor is it meant to be), and will probably grow (or shrink) as I address each of the items in the list. The idea is that I set out a road map of information that I intend to share to let anyone reading this know what my intentions are, and also to create a To-Do list for myself to make sure that I don't forget anything - and to get me off my butt to actually write something.

So here goes. The following are some of the subjects that I hope to cover:

  • The things you need to trade
  • Finding companies to invest in / trade on
  • Differences between trading and investing
  • Approaches to trading (day vs short term trading vs investing)
  • Risk and reward
  • Minimising risk
  • Currency risk - trading accross currency borders
  • The mechanics of trading
  • Sources of company information - where to look and what to look for
  • Trading research tools
  • Creating a trading strategy
  • Creating and using stop losses
  • Automated trading and trading algorithms
  • Books to read
In addition to this I will start to write a history of my own journey of actual trades. This will not be done in real time, nor will I post any information ahead of time on what trades I intend to make. You will need to find your own target companies. I am not a financial advisor and cannot give any direct financial advice. Hopefully the information that I post on this site will help you on your own journey. Happy reading and good luck!

Why am I doing this?

I have become interested in investing as a potential way to increase my personal capital. My ultimate goal is to try and make my retirement in approximately 16 years more comfortable. I began this journey about 6 months ago and have been learning as much as possible about how someone in my position might approach this. I realized recently that a lot of the research that I have been doing might be of use to others with similar intentions, as well as people with longer investment horizons. My intention is to share what knowledge I gave gained and to perhaps share my actual journey into the world of trading, with all its ups and downs.
