Stock Market

Most people like to pretend they have some idea about this aspect of finance. They like to think they’re smart enough to be the Wolf of Wall Street…or the Ape of the ASX…or the Numbat of NASDAQ…

Don’t worry, you aren’t expected to know what a numbat is. But as for the ASX or NASDAQ…

Well, anyone wanting to even lightly dabble in stocks needs to know their way around these. In fact, you need to know your way into these.

Where are the stocks?

NASDAQ is short for the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations —an American electronic stock exchange. The Aussie equivalent is the ASX — the Australian Securites Exchange.

You aren’t a true investor if you don’t visit these websites on a daily basis.

They show you what stocks are on the rise…how long they’ve been on a rise…the highest price they’ve ever hit…and of course, they can tell you the opposite…

But it’s not enough to type a company name into Google and check out the share price graph. Not if you want to be serious about investing, that is.

Where the treasure of the market lies

As an investor, you need to dig deeper than the mainstream headlines to see where the stock market’s really at. The true stock opportunities aren’t going to be on the first page of a Google search.

They’re going to be hidden amidst the daily ASX and NASDAQ announcements and reports.

I told you it was more than just graphs.
