The Reality of the Stock Market

Its always the people with the brightest mind and sufficient resources who will win in this game. The sore losers are always the silliest of the silliest or fools of the fools. They never seem to learn and most will never as history had proven it over and over again. Its just human nature. But I do hope that the story below will present to you the reality of it and how those brightest minds will conquer the weakest and greediest of them all.

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared who announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10.00 . The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys in the forest, went out and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10.00.

As supply started to diminish and villagers started to stop their efforts, he announced that now he would buy them at $20.00.This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon, the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate was increased to $25.00 and the supply of monkeys became so scarce that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it.

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50.00. However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of the man.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers, "Look at all the monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $ 35.00 and when the man comes back, you can sell them to him for $50.

The villagers queued up with all their savings to buy the monkeys.After that, neither the assistant nor the businessman could be found anywhere but the monkeys were everywhere!

So the moral of the story, dont be greedy!!
