    Over from PC, finally.

    Avid short-term leveraged shorter here, looking to make the most out of learning about dividend and growth shares.

    Happy to share any knowledge I can about my intermittent but ongoing shorting CFD escapades on the US market.

    Help a brother out, yo!

    i don't intentionally play in the short and exciting stuff , which is lucky for me or the cardiologist would make me stop that as well . ( mumble grumble )

    however dividend and growth shares ( mid-term holdings can be either or both )

    first lesson .. learn about DRP ( Dividend Reinvestment Plan)

    Dividend Reinvestment Plan - DRIP
    written for the US but much works similar here
    The Perks Of Dividend Reinvestment Plans

    now you don't have to do this , but understand it , and use it or reject it as best suits you .

    should you choose the do some DRP then this will give some extra hints

    Investing 101: The Concept Of Compounding

    the art of compounding:

    ( hint the more often a div. is paid ... say 3 monthly , the better compounding works )

    now this sort game has it's complications as well .

    buy low ( and don't sell ) sounds simple , but sometimes it is just good sense to reduce ( rescue that investment cash ) or to exit completely .

    knowing when you are in a crash or just a correction ( or just a retracement ) is very useful as well .

    i suggest study ( and research) hard and wait until the XJO drops below 5000 before buying , but temptation will probably beat you at the waiting game ( i even bought some BWP , dearer than i would like but am playing a hunch )

    PS have a plan you will stick to ( when it is wise to )

    Hi Aaron great to have you here.

    I'm pretty sure we had a couple of people who were into CFDs around here, but things have been pretty quiet recently - will see if I can track them down.
