How to Be an Aggressive Investor

Do you think it's time for you to step up your game and become a more aggressive investor? Getting tired of the same old nickel and dime returns on your money? Check out the information afforded to you here to take your investing to the next level. 

  1. Use increased leverage for aggressive investing. The use of leverage is very risky, but if you are sure about a certain investment idea then it makes since to use it. Let's say you have a $1000 and you want to trade in a market that trades at $1 pips per $1000 investment, But you want to trade as if you have $10,000. What you would do is tell the brokerage that you want to trade at ten to one so that with every tick up in the market you make $10 instead of $1. The reason why this is so dangerous is because it can go in the other direction as well.
  2.  High returns most always mean higher risk. Involve yourself in higher risk opportunities. You need to really understand the businesses though, so you at least don't lose money due to ignorance.
  3.  Put all your eggs in one basket. Only do this if you are sure that basket far exceeds all the others based on your research. Aggressive investors sometimes use this as a means to really take advantage of a hot market.
  4. Take a chance on newly hot trends in the market. Make sure to diversify that aggression, by investing a small amount in each hot trend. This will protect you, because even though you are investing aggressively; it is still being spread out over a multitude of investments.
