    Managing Your Portfolio Utilizing Some Of Igor Cornelsen's Methods

    Investing is a long term game. If you're looking to play the markets, and you're not committed to long term investing strategies, you will never find success. Most investments just aren't meant to pay off that way, and this perception that stocks are like playing the lottery is pretty ridiculous.

    The long term investors like Igor Cornelsen are in the game to make profits that last a lifetime. That means investing is a career move, something that you're prepared to do for many decades, if you want to see legitimate returns. You can see returns of 500% and more when you're committed to playing the markets for life.

    That's why the first big tip is to change how you view the stock market. This isn't a place to earn a quick buck, this is where you invest your money intelligently, so that you can get a major return on your investment down the line.

    Plus you need to be prepared to make many small investments, instead of a large one. Another massive mistake new investors make, is wanting a big return on their dollars, and over committing to one particular stock. However, by making many investments you limit the losses you could potentially take, and you also improve the chances that you're going to be successful with some investments.

    But you have to be prepared to play the long game. Look at companies that are generally productive, and that have been consistently. Whether or not they're the hot new corporation on the market or not, you want proven companies that have a long history of providing some sort of return.
