Your Questions About Money Making Stocks

George asks…

What will the value of stocks be during martial law in the US?

How can you make money in the stock market if stocks never rise? I dont see how they could under marshall law.
That we will be controlled soon.

John answers:

Do you envision the nation going to martial law? Justify your theory. The imposition of martial law in the U.S. Involves the suspension of habeas corpus and therefore requires an act of Congress. The government is not going to implement martial law on a whim as you seem to suggest. Also you need to understand that the stock market and the economy go through periods or cycles of expansion and contraction. Industries and individual stocks go through those cycles as well. So in a reasonably healthy economy you can expect stocks to rise and you can expect stocks to fall. This is why advisors and financial planners recommend committing only discretionary funds to the stock market. The individual investor must be able to live without that money for as much as five years. To answer your question, martial law would create a climate of uncertainty. Stock markets do not like political and economic instability. They do not even like a whiff of uncertainty in the air (such as we have seen this week).

Steven asks…

How much money could 10million dollars make?

They say that if you have a lot of money then “money makes money

So if someone had 10 million dollars how much could they make after one year?

But not if they put it into stock market or went to a casino with it, but something safe that will guarantee to make money and not lose them.

John answers:

$32,250 in treasury bills at the current 26 week yield of 0.15%

$137k in bank CDs at the current average one year yield of 1.37%, although the FDIC wouldn’t guarantee $10,000,000.

If you had $10,000,000 and didn’t invest at least part of it you would be an imbecile.

Sandy asks…

What is the best brokerage firm for buying and selling stocks quickly?

I want to get involved in buying and selling stocks to make money. I want to know what id the best brokerage firm online or public firms that will give me cheap transactions and easy enough to buy and sell stocks. I will buy stocks and sell them quickly to make little but some money from stocks raging from $1-$25 per stock.

John answers:

All major brokerage firms and mutual fund companies provide their clients with on-line services, including trading platforms, latest market & financial news and research. Customer need to select the site that is best for them. Traders have requirements in a site, while investors have other requirements.

There is no such thing as “the best” brokerage firm for buying & selling, The speed of execution is about the same for all brokerage firms since they all use the same basic routing system for exchange traded stocks. There may be some delays on stocks that trade OTC. Since there may not be any systemic routing to dealers/market-makers. The average execution time for market orders submitted on exchanges is less than 5 seconds.

Judging by the wording of your question, it appears you need to do more studying about the markets and the securities traded in those markets before you select a firm.
All firms charge about the same fees for executions for most “active” customers, however in many cases when you buy penny stocks, you may pay moe for such transactions since these types of trades are more costly for the firms.,

It seems that the most popular firms for on-line investing/trading all of which provide excellent platforms and services are; Scottrade; Chas.Schwab; TDAmeritrade; Fidelity; E-Trade, Vanguard, T.Rowe Price and Thinkorswim.
