Oct 12, 2011 12:47AM
The best advice, from a ten year veteran,  for a new investor ....  The market right now is no place for new investors . In this volatile market there is no place for fear, goto the free paper money trading sites for a few months, avoid buying anyone's system of sure money makers, do your own research, build watch lists, and in the end, you will be glad you didnt put your hard earned money on the line.

I found this to be a quality, informative article for new investors, I learned much from the destription of qualified and nonqualified dividends, and how reits are taxed at ordinary rates.  Secondly, the advice on tax deferred account strategies with high yeild bonds reits and other non qualified investments was great advice IMO.  This, unlike most, articles on MSN was actually helpful. thanks!

Two things. 

A gain is not a gain unless you sell.  If you are deathly afraid of selling before a year and a day is up because you'll owe ordinary taxes, just weigh this - would you rather pay 25% on your gain now or would you rather 'harvest' losses?  Sure, sell the loser at a loss and offset other ordinary income (limit of 3,000 loss allowed beyond gains and then you are in a carryover situation), but think before you let a gain get away in these tough times. There's no shame in taking a gain.  You'll most assuredly lose out on the up side too at times, but you got your gain and no one can take that away. 


Next, never (there are few nevers in life) - never, put your emergency fund in the market and always (same goes for always) - always have a separate LIQUID emergency fund established before you dabble in the market.  Taking a loss smarts...and, despite your great intentions, it is going to not compound that agony by leaving yourself naked without an emergency fund.

It would be one thing if we had only to deal with the usual crooks in the market; they can be averaged out.  But now we have the Chernobyl class of fools who are holding the safety valves down while waiting to see what happens next. What happens 'next' will be a catastrophe. Even China will feel some reverberation. That's why they are arming so rapidly -- just launched a super carrier, now on sea trials -- so that they will be around to pick up the pieces.

[BRIEFING.COM] The headlines generally favored Tuesday being another good day for the stock market.  Instead, it was just a mixed day with modest point changes on either side of the unchanged mark for the major indices.

For the most part, the stock market was a sideshow.  The main trading events were seen in the commodity and Treasury markets, both of which saw some decent-sized losses within their respective complex.

Dollar strength was at the heart of the weakness in ... More
