Saving Money by Doing Nothing

Some weeks ago I published a post about overtrading (taken from Investor's Business Daily) as a common mistake made by a lot of traders and investors. There is another good article about this topic in TheStreet.com column by Barry Ritholtz.

Apprenticed Investor: Nothing Doing

Let's be blunt: There is something exhilarating, even thrilling, about trading. The adventure of putting a position on, the buzz of watching it rally -- it can be such a delight that it almost feels illicit.

Clearly there is a rush to trading, especially when the market is really hot. But if you are getting that excited by trading, then the odds are you have become far too emotionally involved in the trade.

This is a huge mistake.

There's nothing wrong with having, say, 5% of your portfolio in a "mad money" account for more speculative trades or just to have "some skin in the game." But if you are trading to get your jollies, then you are not spending your money well.

There are times when doing nothing is your best course of action. But knowing when to sit one out is a problem many investors have.

All too many investors are on autopilot; they always buy 1,000-share lots, they trade the same stocks, they make about the same number of trades per week. Why even trade if you don't like the market? That's a decision that too many people make without actually considering their options carefully.

Dear Judgment Holder:

Please allow me to introduce our exclusive, extremely valuable service
available to you and your clients. We recover debts for people who have won a monetary
judgment in court. We are not a collection agency, but judgment recovery specialists.

Our records show that you have been awarded a numerous amount of judgments in Mississippi. As a judgment holder, you have the right to assign someone else to collect your judgment. If you have not been able to collect theses judgments, we are interested in collecting for you. We specialize in locating individuals hidden assets and seizing them to satisfy judgments. Our company’s fee is based solely on a percentage of what is actually collected.

There is a time limitation on collecting a judgment. If you do not properly act on your
claim, it will expire soon. Please don’t let the hard work you have already put into
winning this judgment go to waste.

Again, the out of pocket cost to you is nothing. We will bear all expenses involved in the
search and collection. You will receive a substantial percentage of the total amount of
assets found and seized within thirty days of collection.
If you are interested in collecting your money, with no cost to you in advance, please
contact me at (662) 624-2844 or (662) 902-2543 immediately to arrange for assignment and terms. Since your judgment has been nothing more than an IOU for so long, you have nothing to lose by allowing us to collect for you. Don’t delay – turn that worthless piece of paper into cash.
