There is a twitter account Goldman Sachs Elevator, that belongs to a man, who is in his words, close to Wall Street. His name is John Lefebvre. In this tweet he collects quotes allegedly heard in elevators at the Office Exchange. Arrogant and sometimes simply introduce yourself to funny statements that reveal the true nature of stock brokers:
"Bulls" earn money "bears" make money, and what about "pigs"? "Pigs" get slaughtered. Therefore, if you do not know the rules of the game on the global stock markets - there is nothing there to for you.
Teach a man to fish and he will once again vote in favor of the one who promises to give him the fish.
Every phone call I begin with the words: "My phone almost sat down and may turn off, so come on quick."

1. "Hold" often means "sell"
Citigroup Bank has recently been fined $ 15 million for the labeling certain shares as "hold", but communicating to a separate group of customers they have to sell them. Analysts have found at least six shares, in which wealthy clients of Citibank opened short positions.
The Securities and Exchange Commission analysts often have to repeat themselves that their share recommendations are based only on private and personal conviction. Sometimes, this creates a problem for banks, but their task - to find buyers and sellers at a certain price of the shares. In addition, it is necessary to please important clients with access to a variety of information, that is what creates the disparity.
Part of the problem lies in the fact that the big banks do not want to offend the same companies who are their regular customers. And so "hold" does not always mean to “sell”, but we must be careful and pay attention, if any bank has done the underwriting in a company - if so, it may mean just mean “sell”.
2. "Much of what we say - only noise"
How to disguise the meaning of the recommendation to "hold", Wall Street also likes to say in the jargon of the other concepts that make investment more difficult than it should be. Much of this "esoteric" terminology refers to technical analysis. Simply put, not all statements made on Wall Street, should be taken literally. Sometimes analysts deliberately confuse participants with their mysterious assumptions.
In addition, concept such as diversification also frequently appears in speeches of experts and are not confirmed under closer examination. The tactic to spread investments across different asset classes proved to be necessary to reduce the risk, but this is connected to loss of revenue. Warren Buffett, for example, rejects this strategy and will invest most of the money in Berkshire Hathaway shares, financial companies and manufacturers of consumer goods.
3. Half of us (and you) should do it wrong
In every transaction there is a winner and a loser. While some circumstances may make a transaction advantageous for one side, it will be disadvantageous to the other. The shares will be either ahead of or lag behind the market. This is the nature of the markets, in the end - they adapt to the perception. If every investor believes that it is time to buy the stock and wait until the price reaches an equilibrium point, in any case, will begin debate on its future direction.
Adopting investment strategy via Crowdshares - one of the best ways to ensure the long-term accumulation of wealth. Warren Buffett said: "I believe that the long-term investments - is the result of trust and this approach will be superior to the ones used by the majority of investors - whether pension funds , institutions or individuals. And here is where Crowdholding presents an opportunity for the crowd to be directly involved in trustworthy relationships with companies, contributing to a transparent culture and superior opportunities for financial and societal benefits. We need to ignore the chatter, keep the minimum costs and to invest in stocks as if you have been on farm and could not always watch the news.
