Fun & Easy Ways to Invest

So simple, even a caveman can do it

  • All it takes is a little patience.

Now I'm no stock guru, but I've discovered a way to invest money that is profitable and requires very little of your time.

Sound too good to be true?

Let me explain.

I have been watching the stock market go up and down like a yo-yo for the past 20 plus years. As we all know the stock market is impossible to predict, but we have history on our side. At the moment the stock market is registering what is known as a "mid term presidential election year bottom". A very significant stock market rally has followed each mid term election bottom. I won't bore you with all the details however here are some facts dating back to the 1962 mid term presidential elections:

Bottom................ DJIA Close ..............% Decline to.............. Duration to next

------------------------------------------- Bottom-----------------Major Top

June 26, 1962------- 535--------------------- 27 %------------- 85% over 44 months

Oct 7, 1966--------- 744--------------------- 25 %------------- 32% over 26 months

May 26, 1970------- 631--------------------- 35 %------------- 66 % over 32 months

December 6, 1974--- 577--------------------- 45%------------- 75 % over 22 months

(There are more, but I'll skip to more recent data, I'm sure you get the Idea)

June 13, 2006------ 10,706------------------- 8%-------------- 32% over 16 months

As you can see some of these stats are hard to ignore.

  • 3 Easy steps to investing.

1- Invest in Index, No Load Mutual Funds. A good site to start at is Fidelity.com or Vanguard.com

2- Dollar cost average into the market. This will allow you to purchase your shares at the going market price. Invest thru an IRA or retirement program to defer your taxes.

3- Patience, Patience, Patience. You will not get rich over night!. As you can see in the above chart, your investment will be take years.
