Risk Potential

Everybody out there is always trying out the latest get rich quick scheme to make a lot of money fast. Nobody wants to make money the old fashioned way anymore, which is by working hard, whether it's digging ditches all day or making picture frames. If we have learned one thing from this new generation is that they will take the easier road to travel to make a few bucks rather than put in some hard work at the office. Which is okay. Who doesn't want to make the most amount of money for the least amount of effort required possible?

Whatever way you've made or earned your money over the years doesn't really matter. What matters is how you save, spend, keep or invest that money. You can sign up for some vacation package or you can buy tickets to the Stanley Cup Finals or you can buy a brand new car. Or you can keep your money and invest it and make even more money. You can potentially invest and make enough money to pay the mortgage rates on a new house.

The stock market and market sharing are areas in which you can invest your money but be warned that there is risk potential associated with both. The stock market is where the trading of company stocks and derivatives takes place for an agreed upon price. The way you can get in on the stock market game is by buying shares of a certain company and hoping that their values grow each and everyday. If you buy a stock today at a certain price and the value of that company goes up then the stock value goes up, which means you've made money.

Market sharing is when you invest in one company who owns a whole bunch of other companies or you invest in only a certain field or portfolio such as fast food restaurants. Ask your fellow co-workers if they have shares in any companies if you're looking for someone to invest in.

It's pretty nice to make money through investing in stocks and market sharing but you need to be aware of the risks involved with that potential to make lost of money. Market sharing could backfire if something catastrophic happens to the particular industry you're investing in causing every company on the stock market's value to go down, which means you can potentially lose a lot of money. It's best to invest your money in a variety of companies and industries. You don't want to put all your eggs in one basket, as they say.

Investing in companies on the stock market is risky because you never know how a company might perform from day to day. You have to be ready at a moment's notice to sell if something bad happens. Sometimes you don't have such a chance as the stock market works so fast so you might find yourself losing a lot of money in the matter of seconds. The stock market is a risky game to play. It's up to you to decide if you can handle the stress that comes with investing in the stock market.
