any individuals decide at some point that
they would like to direct their own investments. Their own
portfolio. But they do not know how to begin. So they begin
to try to educate themselves. It is unfortunate that many
times, such investigations result
in 'get rich quick' schemes', guaranteeing high accuracy rates
and millions of dollars in a matter of months. All you have to do is purchase a
particular 'system'. The wary are usually put off by such over-hyped promises.
Upon further investigation, perhaps they find
someone who seems to know market terminology and speaks of reliable chart
patterns. They begin to compare these chart patterns to past time periods
in the capital markets, and indeed ... they seem to 'predict' the
future. However over time, they find that chart patterns only tell you
what happened on the left side of the chart; they
do not 'predict' the right side of the chart. Perhaps others begin to
listen to someone who has been trading for a few years, but has an extreme
economic bias. Or worse yet, an extreme political bias. These biases
color their investment decisions to the extent that the 'guru' cannot adapt to
market conditions in a flexible manner. To adjust their stance would
not fit in with their one stance political view.
unfortunately, this means that such ones are left to muddle through on their
own. Many give up. Many continue to trade and invest, only to 'blow up'
their account, meaning they lose their entire account balance to the markets.
They save, and then fund their account again, only to lose it over and over in a
No nonsense trading
is dedicated to providing information regarding investing and trading; sans
the hype. Without bias or promises of absolute prediction.
Instead, "No Nonsense Trading" is written by an actual
trader in the capital markets with 17 years of experience, Daniel A. Shy.
The author of "Airelon's
Investing and Trading Blog" for nearly 5 years, Daniel
"Aileron" Shy established a proven, profitable record. In addition
"Aileron" provided much of this market education for free. Without cost,
and without charge. Sharing freely what he had learned over the past 17
years. The eventual goal is to transfer much of the free information that
was found on "Aileron's Investing and Trading Blog" to this website, in an easy
to navigate (and still free) format.
The goal of "No
Nonsense Trading" is to provide information on the reality of trading the
capital markets. It's premium newsletter "Aileron Market
Balance" will approach the markets with reason and rationality.
And as the "aileron" of an airplane provides stability and
balance, this newsletter too aims to reflect a balanced approach to the capital
markets. At the same time, the newsletter provides an 'over the shoulder'
look as to Dan "Aileron" Shy's thoughts regarding the economy, as well as
specific dividend investing and trading ideas for the upcoming week
