Driving For Success in Soccer or Trading

Stock Tickers

When you have this much drive, passion, and focus, you can't help but win. It doesn't matter if your kicking a ball around the lawn or trading in size, every game has it's rules and when you're not following them, you're losing.

To use a soccer reference, goals aren't made and games aren't won when you're attempting to kick the ball into the opponents goal before your setup is complete. Working, waiting, and having patience to make the shot when you have the best of it is how you win in soccer and when money is made (for you, instead of your counter-party).

When you're entering in trades half-cocked without knowing all the facts and worried you might "miss out", that's when you're in the background chasing the winner.

Shanghai from the Bund

Stock Tickers

The recent steep slides and greater volatility within global stock markets and world economies have been a long time in the making. Investors were witnessing as early as two years ago how the world economies began to shift. Clearly it was becoming obvious that in addition to the contraction of global demand, as well as the general increase in the relative competitiveness of other Asian countries, China’s rapid rise was coming to a screeching halt and leaving excessive debt in its wake.

How To Share Your Amazon Prime Free Two-Day Shipping With Family Members

If you're like many households, you have more than one user buying from Amazon and selecting two-day Prime shipping. During the holidays, birthday's, and other events, it can become problematic to keep the recipient of your gifts from finding out what you bought. Between emails that Amazon sends for each order and the order history, you can never be sure. I know from my own household that my wife found out about some gifts I bought her because her email account was the one Amazon Prime was sending order emails to. During the holdiays, which is also the same time of our wedding anniversary, I went into her Amazon account and changed the email address until she opened her gifts. Fortunately, there's a better way. The good news is Amazon Prime allows users to share their Prime membership with up to four people, so that they can order on their own accounts, while receiving the same free two-day shipping.

Novogen Limited Shares Take a Wild Ride

Novogen CEO Graham Kelly

TWTR NVGN

Only a day after shares of Melanoma drug researcher and pharmaceutical company Novogen Limited blasted from $1.71 to a high of almost $6, the company announced a secondary offering of about 32.85 million ordinary shares at a price of A$0.125, or about 10 cents each in US Dollars. Each US share trading on the NASDAQ is equal to 25 Australian shares for an equivalent of about $2.50. It's not uncommon for up and coming pharmaceutical companies to raise capital after a major breakthrough. Some secondaries are better than others, and this appears one that will won't hamper shares for a long period.
