My Twin Towers Appraoch To Stock Market Investing

My Twin Towers Appraoch To Stock Market Investing. Investments can take any form that suits our needs. We just need to be mindful and take the right precautions.
A couple of years back, I read Fitz's post/quiz on how to tell if you were an investor or a trader.

It was a great article. You can make money either way - as long as it suited your strengths. Sure, I advocate long-term, "safe" investing; it would be irresponsible of me not to. But plenty of people make money by actively trading.

The next day or so, Burn wrote a post inspired by that quiz. After reading his 3-guard combo stock investing strategy, I thought to myself "That's a great strategy!"

I tried implementing a similar strategy. And that's when I realized investing involves creating a strategy that fits your personality and situation.

And so I'm sharing my own investing strategy. (True to form, it took me one year to react when it took someone else just one day to do the same.)

My Own Trash to Cash experience(s)

My Own Trash to Cash experience(s).   It seems like one of those small "tweaks" you can do and earn extra cash. But is it worth it?  It's probably best to think about it as a rebate for helping the environment.
A couple of years ago, I read Fitz' trash to cash post. I got excited. It seemed like one of those small "tweaks" you can do and earn extra cash.

And when I later read Benedict's post on the same, I figured I should really try and do it.

So of course the logical next step for me was to twiddle my thumbs and let time pass by unproductively. After a sufficient time (i.e. long enough to be considered "irresponsible") elapsed with absolutely zero progress, I was finally ready to start.

Paying off debt, at it's core, is pretty simple. Just fork over money equal to the debt, right?

7 Non-traditional Investments You Can Start Even If You Don't Have SSS, TIN, or a Birth Certificate (yet)

7 Non-traditional Investments You Can Make Even If You Don't Have  SSS, TIN, or a Birth Certificate (yet): Forex, Networking or MLM, Paid Online Surveys, Blogs, Affiliate Programs, Digital Stores, Web Hosting Resellers.
First, it's very important to note that having an SSS and TIN is... well, very important.

SSS will improve your future, and it's important to pay the proper taxes. And a birth certificate is usually required to get either one.

For most, if not all, employees that is not a problem. Employers often help them acquire these, or at least give them time to do so. The self-employed, freelancers, enterprising students, and the less affluent residing in provinces (or even in the metro) aren't as lucky though.

However, just because you don't have the right documentation right now doesn't mean there's not much else you can do in the meantime.

The rainy season is here again! ... or almost here, anyway.

While storms and heavy rains might not come for a few weeks or months more (or they might; who knows?), I wanted to share this public service/advisory from the DENR Mines and Geosciences Bureau

When Should I Sell My Stock?

When Should I Sell My Stock?  Probably the hardest part of investing is knowing when to sell. This dilemma is caused by one of two reasons: We bought without a plan, or We had a plan, but didn't have the discipline to follow it.
Probably the hardest part of investing is knowing when to sell.

Think about it: It just went up 3% today, should I sell now because there's probably a correction tomorrow? Then it goes down 2% the next day; should I sell before it goes down further? But the short/medium/long-term trend is still going up, should I sell later? But if the trend is trading in range, should I wait until the break-out? What if it doesn't brake-out and instead breaks down?
