3 Ways to Lose All Your Money in the Stock Market


I’ve seen these types of  "you better read this” articles so many times in my life. While I was a professional wealth manager, I was not allowed to write out against them. I was also too busy. 
Now that I’m retired, I have time to try to help people avoid this garbage.

I saw this in “headline news” today. It is one the most blatant things you’ll see on the net to get clicks.  

“3 Ways to Lose All Your Money

This is the title of a recent article in the financial news section.

The title wording itself was written in clean, bold font for all to see.

Pretty eye catching, huh? Draws attention right?

I’m not going to cite the source because if you Google this sentence you’ll probably find 100 articles that say something - just like this. 

There was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING  new in the article- even to a beginner. 

Think along the lines of  'you’ll get in health trouble 1) don’t even breakfast, 2)don’t eat lunch, 3)don’t eat dinner.' Then there plenty of links they want you to click, to tell you why. 

Big Yawn.

Folks, when you see headlines like this trash, please don’t read it. Save your time.  Go onto the next one. 

The only purpose of it is to grab clicks.
