WINNING WEALTH STRATEGIES
The Secrets Of Successful Investing
In Any Market
by Charles E. Mellon
248 pages. Paperback
This book is the result of over 25 years of my personal and professional investment experience. I started as a stockbroker in 1976, and quickly became one of the top producers in my firm (meaning, I helped my clients make a great deal of money). Over the years, I became a Branch Office Manager, and then Corporate Vice-President. (More important, I was making my clients a lot of money.) I became an expert in an entire range of investment vehicles, particularly those which generated cash flow: short-term gains on a daily and monthly basis, which added up to big yearly returns.
Many investors (including stockbrokers) avoided these short-term strategies because they considered things like options "too risky" and needing too much attention. However, I discovered that with some basic understanding, a certain amount of attention each day, and above all, clear ideas of my investment goals and the amount of risk I was willing to take, I could do very well with these strategies, both for my clients and myself.
I did so well, in fact, that in 1992 I left the stockbrokerage world to become a full-time investor. For the last nine years I have earned a very comfortable living doing exactly what you will learn in this book. I've made money in bull markets and bear markets; I've made money whether a stock's value went up or down. I've also learned when to get out of a particular investment (which can be even more important than when to get in). Many of the techniques I use are covered in these pages. Of course, I'm not right all the time, but I'm right more often than I'm wrong, and that's what makes the difference between a successful investor and one who's broke.
I'm not the only one who has profited from this information. In 1996 I started teaching what I practice to groups all around the world. Today I'm happy to say that investors in Europe, Australia, Canada, and the U.S. have taken these strategies and increased their returns on their investments, sometimes dramatically. And I want you to have the same opportunity.
You have taken the first step on your way to wealth by investing in this book. Much time, effort and research have gone into its pages. I hope it will be a truly useful guide, helping you to maximize your investment potential and overall portfolio returns. I've attempted to make the information and examples interesting and understandable so you will refer back to its pages again and again as you pursue your investment goals.
From the very start of my investing career, I loved being able to teach clients these winning wealth strategies. I still love giving people the kind of counsel that can unlock the doors to a new understanding of how to make their money work harder for them. This book is a summary of some of my best investment advice. By utilizing the methods in its pages and adhering to the basic strategies for portfolio management, you should dramatically increase your chances for future investment success. As you read this book, visualize the concepts being discussed, and ask yourself, "How can I use this to improve my own investment returns and overall financial position?"
May you enjoy the fruits of your efforts in the months and years ahead. Good luck investing!
