Look, I’m not going to sit here and sugarcoat anything for you. There is an easy way to make money with stocks. And it’s called patience. You need to be investing in the stock market. Stop sitting there waiting around for a “crash”. It may never come. Not only that, but if you try to time it, you’ll probably screw it up. I’m being honest with you here. You are not a professional, and your broker is an idiot.
So you have some money. You want to invest in the stock market. “Maybe I should wait for the ‘big crash’ to come.” You think. You wait, and you wait. A year goes by. Two years. Three years. No crash. Your friends start telling you how three years ago they put some extra cash in “some random index fund” and now they have enough money to buy that new 5 bedroom 5 bathroom house on that soybean farm in your town (I don’t know, we all have dreams, bro).
The point I’m trying to make, is patience is the easiest way to make money with stocks. If you are thinking about getting in, you just have to pull the trigger. It isn’t about trying to time the market, it’s about time spent in the market. The Dow Jones isn’t going to wait around for you to make your decision. It’s doing its own thing, breaking records left and right. You think it cares? No. You invest, and you wait. If there is a pullback, you put in more. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
Like I said. I’m not going to sugarcoat an investment plan for you. You have to get off your butt and do it for yourself. The easiest way to make money with stocks is to invest. And then sit tight. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
