Five Ways to Outsmart Other Investors

By

Why do investors chase hot money and hang on to losers?

4. Risk less -- by saving more.

This is actually a neat little trick. Classic market theory holds that to generate bigger returns, you have to have to take on more risk. That's true -- as far as it goes. But here's what that adage doesn't address: By taking some simple steps to save more, you can actually accumulate wealth more quickly than by the increased levels of risk most investors are relying upon at the moment.

5. Don't let yourself get whipsawed out of the market.


Investors who prepare for only one kind of market are the most susceptible to panic selling. To them, investing is an all or nothing proposition. You've got to prepare for both "up" and "down" markets. And you do so with some simple hedging strategies. Hedging, after all, isn't just for hedge funds. In fact, everyday people just like us can use them very effectively, which is why I encourage you to do so. You see, if you've prepared for "up" and "down" markets, you no longer have to actually "predict" what the markets are going to do. Then you can focus on finding quality companies with real earnings, a healthy dose of overseas sales, and high income.

Once these five strategies are in place, you can turn your money loose to do the work it wants do for you. And you can sit back and enjoy beating the so-called "smart" money -- practically no matter what the stock market does next.

As my market analysis demonstrates, success as an investor requires knowing when to act.

But it also requires knowing where to look.

Like under the Eiffel Tower.

The French Oil Ministry has confirmed there is a 40-billion-barrel reserve under that historic landmark -- enough to fuel total US oil demand for 5.2 years, according to the Energy Information Administration.

And a tiny US company is poised to profit from this $2.8 trillion cache of crude. Opportunities such as this are the kind of potential profit plays that my firm focuses on in our monthly affiliate newsletter, The Money Map Report. This publication tracks global money flows, and where those capital flows intersect with some of the most powerful economic and financial trends at play today.

Fifteen trades. All profitable. Since launching his Geiger Index trading service late last year, Money Morning Investment Director Keith Fitz-Gerald is a perfect 15 for 15, meaning he's closed every single one of his trades at a profit. And he did this during one of the most volatile periods for the U.S. stock market since the Great Depression. Fitz-Gerald says the ongoing financial crisis has changed the investing game forever, and has created a completely new set of rules that investors must understand to survive and profit in this new era. Check out our latest insights on these new rules, this new market environment, and this new service, the Geiger Index.
