Thousands if not millions of people play money in State lottery games hoping to cash in on their tickets yet only a handful of people really profit by doing so. But do they really? According to lottery statistics 96% to 98% of lottery winners of a million dollars or more are worse off emotionally, financially, in their lives and in their relationships within a year and a half of winning the money. So not even winners can handle the windfall they receive which so many people dream and plan about. But investing in the commodity markets is not much different. According to commodity market statistics 98% of investors lose money investing in the commodity markets.
How can you win and why is it that so many people lose? There are different reasons for both the commodity markets and State lotteries but in lotteries, winners are determined by Laws of fortune or fate and in the commodity markets it is most often investors who buy and sell at the wrong times who lose. But how would it be if you were able to either choose the numbers correctly in lotteries or predict how markets were going to move so your investments would profit?
In the instance of being able to intend and correctly choose the numbers in State lotteries there would remain the same challenge everyone faces with the windfall profits of instant millions of dollars but in the case of predicting how markets would move you would still have to start out small and grow your investments into something larger over time and it would be necessary to understand market economics of investing in commodities such as how to get the best value for your money and how to reinvest your profits to grow. So by investing in the commodities markets you would not be subject to the same Laws of chance that lottery winners are because you would be developing your own business over time and earning through your own decisions.
And you can do this as easily as opening a futures account with a brokerage and studying current and past price charts which show the history of prices in that particular market. What you will see in any market’s history of prices on a longer scale monthly chart and in each market is the same pattern. Prices remain low for a period of years sometimes, rise to a peak, undergo heavy market buying and selling and prices drop even more rapidly than they rose. This pattern is found in every market!
So how is it that you can be so sure where the market is going? It is like I said, what goes up must come down and all that is necessary to know is that you buy when the market is low and sell when the market is high. No matter what happens it is also true that what goes up must go up and what goes down must go down and you can be assured of this by examining charts. The only thing that confuses people is has it hit bottom yet or has it reached the top.
Investing in commodity options, call options just after prices begin to rise after a period of lows at the bottom or put options at the top soon after a market makes an all time high with enough time before expiration (give it at least 6 months) you can be assured that you will profit on these instruments provided you get what is termed a “strike price” within 50% of the price from its say 5-year low to its 5-year high. These options can cost as little as a few hundred dollars with enough time on them to catch the rise or drop in prices which can be expected over time. Even if options expire before the market has moved you can sell them for what they are worth at the time and reinvest in the same market further out because what goes up must come down and what goes down must come up as well. Prices never remain at one level either high or low for long and buying options with enough time on them is just like having a net in the water where the fish must travel through to get to where they must be.
I have written several articles on both intending to win in State lotteries and how to do it and on commodity investing and why markets follow the patterns they do but in a nutshell anyone who profits in the commodity market must be selling when prices are high and buying when prices are low and I can recommend this method of earning money much more readily than I can going for the lottery windfall because there is no way around what happens to virtually anyone who suddenly comes into millions of dollars through no effort on their part. It just stands to reason the same way people don’t value an inheritance for what it is worth because they have nothing of themselves invested in what they receive.
You can earn money and grow it starting out small and building your business in the commodity markets and this is an opportunity that has no peer in capitalistic economics. In any other businesses you really have to work basically a 24/7 existence to make it successful and put up a lot more capital and risk than it takes if you know the patterns of price movements which even equally apply to the stock market. The difference between the stock market and the commodities markets is that in commodities you purchase rights on tangible assets and in the stock market you are investing in paper.
