The stock market is only for the people who would be considered “Insiders”.
The Markets are designed to funnel money to Wall Street.
At one time, not anymore, purchasing stock was an investment in the equity of a company. Now, however it is so manipulated that the Large brokerages have the ability to trade before the market opens, trade after the market closes, trade before anyone else sees a rise or fall in a given stock price and with the ability to use computers in the actual trade can manipulate the price before anyone else can respond.
Why would anyone in their right mind give their hard earned money to some Wall Street Broker. They are there to make themselves rich, not you, and the way they make themselves rich is by converting your money to their money.
So, if you have money to invest, find a local company, with a good product and invest directly with owners that you can trust.
