Investing in the global markets has changed greatly. There was a time when an individual investor could buy a blue chip company, with dividends and forget all about it. Now those same blue chip companies are tarding at the same values if not lower than  they were almost a decade ago. For example, GE has made almost NO money for you if you bought it in 1999 and held it till today, while GE continued to pay dividends at approximately 3.5%, it still did not do it's primary function which is to appreciate in value.

The way to invest in the 21st century is to actively manage the investments held in your portfolio. There were many times that GE hit new highs within the last 8 years it could've have been traded to make money, far more money than to just hold it and hope that it will go up. Today's market conditions are proof in the pudding, you can make money by taking advantage in the short term fluctuatiuons in the market. If you have the time, this is the time to be active, there are a lot of free-bee's in the market, investor's are taking advantage of the current markets there is no reaso why you shouldn't. Opening a Scottrade account or any trading account is not hard, it is rather easy.

Most stocks are at lows they haven't been at since 2003, this is a great time, we probably will not get another opportnity to take advantage of it. Folks it does not require a lot of money, just a little time on your part.

Ask your friends, most of them probably have already starting making money. I know I have said this and I will say it again, this is a great opportunity to make your money work for you. You work hard for your money, now make that money work hard for you by becoming more infromed and building wealth the way most americans do.

Active management is the new era of the market, it will almost always work, you should always have long term investment strategies, but there should always be room for short term trading.
