apple smart watch for sport design

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is gearing up to give a tough fight to Chinese products in their home turf; China. Asia, particularly China and India are weak points in Apple’s world dominance strategy as these markets are very price sensitive.

Apple would not like to lower its price or its quality; hence it has to contend with lower sales in these critical markets. These markets are currently logging high sales growth in the smartphone industry particularly in the low-cost segment.

New strategies to corner market share:

As Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is caught in a tight bind, it is exploring other strategies. One clever strategy that it debuted last September during the launch of iPhone 6 is to offer Google Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG)’s Android users facility to transfer data to iOS; Apple’s own operating systems.

Transferring data from one operating system to another is a big headache; many people do not switch over, for this reason. As Android is installed in maximum smartphones, shifting from one manufacturer to another is an easy task. Consumers used to face difficulty in transferring data from iOS to Android and vice-versa. Apple is now planning to go a step ahead.

They had always maintained a robust recycling program under which consumers could trade in their old iPhones for newer versions. Respected industry sources aver that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is thinking of rolling out this program to cover all models across the industry.

This move may not appear to be aimed at Chinese or Indian markets, but it will pay dividends as most Asians are averse to disposing of old products. It will also help Apple capture a higher market share in the rest of the world.

 Trader’s Mistake No. 2: Reporting Gains and Losses on Schedule C Instead of Schedule D

Before explaining about this mistake, I will explain you about schedule C and Schedule D.

What is Schedule C in U.S. Federal Tax?

In US Federal Tax, Schedule C is one of the tax filed by most of the sole proprietors, single owner businesses, small business, etc. Usually Schedule C is used to report both income and losses.

What is Schedule D and How it should be used?

Here are the list of things can be filed on schedule D.

  • The sale or exchange of a capital asset and Gains from involuntary conversions.
  • Non-Business Bad debts.
  • Capital gain distributions.

Traders Mistake No. 3: Paying Self-Employment(SE) Taxes On Trading

Most of you choose to trade through a business entity such as corporation, LLC, Partnership,etc.

What mistake you do here is you start reporting your trading income as ordinary income. Then you are paying the trading profits as self-employed tax to the IRS.

Forex can be taxed as earned income.

Because he lost all the money by trading without knowing all the strategies… I’m saying that he is a fool.. He started trading stocks, forex, binary options, etc. by reading some of the success stories written in CNN, Market Watch, etc. He used to search “how to become a millionaire by trading stocks, forex,and so on” on Google. Instead of searching for strategies, he spends most of his time in reading some successful event.

Do you want this whole list of strategies in a PDF?

 

Choose your Stock-Broker carefully and wisely

What I Really Do - Stock Broker-strategies

Choosing regular brokers is a key here, however the brokers can be divided into two categories. They are full-service brokers and discount brokers. For younger investors and beginners, discount brokers will be your best call, but Some people would suggest that the full-service brokers will be best fit for beginners. My suggestion is to go with discount brokers.

4 Things to have in your mind while choosing the best stock-broker.

  • Minimums
  • Margin
  • Withdrawal
  • Complicated Fee Structures
  • Supply and Demand Strategy

Generally, whenever there is a lot of supplies, prices will go down to beat the competitors, same applies to demand, whenever there is a lot of demand i.e more buyers are ready to buy. Price will go up. Use this point as indicators and decide accordingly.

Set price targets before you start trading

Are you buying the stocks for long-term? If you do, calculate the stop-loss level if you proceed further. Because the trade may turn against your instinct and calculation. Using this decision, your loss won’t affect you much than unexpected loss. If you find no loss, then go to the bar, have a beer.

Secret of Patience in Trading

patience stock trading strategies wwhite egret

It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience. -Julius Caesar

If you ask the successful trader, “Do you trade daily?”. The answer will be BIG ‘NO’. They may be at the computer, watching the market news, signals, etc. But if they feel that there is no right opportunity to trade, they will wait until the right time and criteria meets.

Using the Sentiment as Strategy

Love What you do is the one of powerful statement preached by all the great leaders. Whatever you trade, whether its binary options, Call/Pull, short-term interest, commodity trading, etc, just use your emotion and listen to your instinct, you will get the right direction.

Disciplined–What it has to do with Trading strategies?

Being disciplined will help you to keep calm and meet both success and failure. This will eliminate the greed, which will induce us to trade more once win a huge trade. Disciplined behavior will help us to learn the things so quickly and helps us in executing the strategies.

Share Allocation Strategy

share allocation trading strategies

Share allocation is one of the basic strategy that every investor and stock trader should follow. For Eg: Buying tech company stocks for $1000 worth about $30/Share. Consider the broker’s commission also in your mind and calculate the least value of the stock selling price.

Do not be panic about Losses and Market conditions

fucking-panic-and-trade-successfully

As you know that stock market is one of the riskiest investment networks. Sure, there will be ups and down. Why worry about that the future fall and losing the present trade? Concentrate and trade well. Why do we fall? Just to learn from our failures. The more we fail, more we gain knowledge about stock trading. This strategy will come to naturally by gaining experience.

Beware of stock market scams

avoiding stock market scammers strategies

As Stock Market is money related business, many spammers try to exploit this opportunity to scam the people by shouting unreal or unimaginable things like 50% market return. More they try to sell us, more the problem involved with those kind of business. Beware of those scams and try to go with legitimate brokers and stocks, you can research on the internet to learn more about the brokers review and more.

When To Sell the Stocks?

sell the stock strategy

If you want to know when is the right time to sell the stocks, then you must update to date with News channel, news sites, blogs, market signal providers, etc. If you find a large volume on down swing, then you have to sell the stocks immediately.

Buy & Hold Strategy

This strategy is stressless and most powerful strategy used by all successful traders. May be we can say this strategy as Early Adopter’s strategy. For example: Take Microsoft, if you invested in it IPO in 1986 and hold that investment, now you will be a millionaire, but its 20years to turn $10,000 to 4-5Million USD.

Index/Pattern Recognition

You have to be completely thorough with Indexes and pattern recognition. Using these you can find whether the stocks go up or down. For eg: If commodity products go up, where would the stocks move? You have to be capable of predicting the stock’s value depending upon the pattern.

Breakout Trading strategy

breakout strategy 3triangle patterns stock trading

A breakout strategy is an amazing trading strategy used by most of the successful stock traders. This strategy was implemented in Forex trading, commodities trading, options trading and more. This strategy involves the process of studying the technical analysis for stock breakout based on two elements such as support or resistance.

Buy Stocks of the companies with a low Price- earnings ratio

There are tons of Companies out there with a low price-earnings ratio (P/E) make more profit percentage for each and every penny dollar you invest.
