SEATTLE, WA, June 13, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Ask the guy next to you if he knows much about the stock market and investing. There's a good chance the response will be, "No, not much." There is an enormous void in the general public's knowledge about the stock market. Yet, most working adults have contributed to a 401K or other pension plan and will continue to do so for decades. They are asked to choose from a list of funds to grow their retirement accounts with no idea what each fund contains, let alone how well it has performed in the past. You might even know someone who invested in a stock because a friend or family member suggested it was headed for great growth. Unfortunately, it is likely that person has lost their money.
I, myself, am baffled by the fact that a fundamental understanding of the stock market and investing is not provided through public education. The stock market is an important thing to at least understand. It represents the most successful businesses of our economy. The US stock market is the most regulated and largest of all financial markets. And it can provide capital to those who take the time to learn about it. On the other hand, it can also cause painful financial losses for those who do not take the time to learn about it.
TechniTrader, headed by Martha Stokes, a Chartered Market Technician (CMT) and retired financial industry professional, teaches the principles of trading and investing in the stock market. Martha and her trading partner and co-founder of TechniTrader, Howard Johnson, created the company after holding 1 live seminar in response to so many of their friends and family coming to them for help with their investments. Martha and Howard are rare in the financial industry in that they believe that the average investor CAN learn how the stock market works and make prudent decisions for their investments.
