Do you still believe that money can be made in today's stock markets?
yes, even it makes easier now. our stock markets, bullies and share all in thrills... and everything is monitor now. like not ever before.
i mean, there is a lobby, who is controlling daily stocks. if u have good contacts, u can earn good from stock markets, because they up and down by their wishes, and make their own people wins and the opposition is keep on losting... that is a fact.
Money can definitely be made in today's stock markets.
Consider the Dow Jone Industrial Average (Ticker: .DJI) and the S & P 500 index (Ticker: .INX). Both of these indices are considered to be representative of the "stock market." The Dow is an index of 30 significant stocks traded on the NYSE and the Nasdaq and includes companies like General Electric, Disney, Exxon and Microsoft. The S & P 500 index contains 500 stocks chosen for market size, liquidity and industry grouping, among other factors.
When I look at these indices and American business in general, I see great opportunity for recovery and growth. Before the financial crash the Dow was trading above 13,500 (it is currently around 10,100) and the S & P 500 was trading above 1,500 (it is currently around 1,075.) To return to pre-crash levels, the Dow would need to gain 33% and the S & P 500 would need to gain 39%.
Looking at 1 year charts of these indicies, the Dow is up 15% and the S & P 500 is up 14%. (I use Google Finance for my figures.)
In general though, I feel that there are great opportunities to make money in stocks. Many stocks have been undervalued by the news on Greece's debt crisis. Additionally, we can expect stocks to recover as more and more people start getting back into the markets. After all, stocks prices are a result of simple supply and demand. However, there are countless factors that can affect a stock's price.
Yes, as long as you are not wedded to "buy and hold" (buy and hope), and look at it as a trading (cash generating) vehicle, not at it as for "investing". (With very few exceptions.)

Yes, most certainly money can still be made in today's stock markets. Using the correct trading tools can enhance your chances of making some serious amounts of money in the markets.
Yes. Some company can gain benefit in crisis. You should find the company like that. Read the financial statement and the prospectus.
Making money in the stock market is easy - but you have to be willing to be flexible.
First question you should ask: what direction is the market moving in.
Once you establish that, making money buying stocks is easy.
Where most people fail, is they see a company like BP down 20%, and think, hey, thats a great deal - until it sinks another 20%.
Go long when the market direction is long, go short when the market direction is short.
Hoping to catch a falling knife will only cut up the value of your portfolio.
The trend is your friend

I know the stock market is bad, but I'd like to start investing as I know there are a lot of great bargains out there. So if anyone can recommend any published books that they have read themselves, I would appreciate it.
