Outwitting the Job Market Over the Long Term – Part 1

Outwitting the Job Market Over the Long Term – Part 1

You’ve found a great job, you have every right to celebrate. Go out on the town. Eat a good meal with your friends. Make a toast to your own future. But don’t forget that while you’ve outwitted the job market in the short term, you’ll have to keep your eye on the long term too. That’s right outwitting the job market is actually a career-long pursuit. As long as you’re in the workplace, you’ll have to plot and strategize ways of staying ahead. Fortunately, this isn’t as hard as it sounds. The tips below are a good starting point for taking advantage of the opportunities your new job will offer-and creating a few opportunities of your own.

UNDERGO REGULAR CAREER SELF-APPRAISALS

You go to the doctor once a year for a complete physical examination; why not undergo an annual career examination too? The self-appraisal is a way to take stock of your continuing career-related achievements and goals. At least once a year, write down a list of the skills and experiences you hope to be gleaning from your job and where you want to be in the coming year. By comparing this list to what is actually happening, you will be able to determine the rate of your professional growth. If your job is helping you to achieve most of your desired career goals, then you know you are making good progress. If, however, there are sizable discrepancies between your “wish list” and your “reality list” over a reasonably long period of time, you may want to consider renewing your job search efforts.

One management consultant says she takes off a personal day every six months specifically for the purpose of self-appraisal. “I usually spend the day outdoors, in a park or hiking. I take my list with me. Away from work and the usual interruptions at home, I’m able to be more objective. I can be honest with myself about where my job is going, where I want to be, and whether those two directions dovetail.”

Thinking long-term doesn’t hurt, either. Where do you want to be in your career in five years, ten, or twenty? What can you do now to ready yourself for these goals? Considering the distant as well as immediate future can help you to make important decisions regarding your career. Explains a thirty-one-year-old professional who works for a prominent accounting company: “I have a rough idea of where I want to be, using age as a scale. I want to be in a management role by the age of thirty-five, for example. If I’m not there in a few years, I have to assess some things. Why am I not getting promoted? Am I not performing up to the [necessary] level? Or is the company overlooking me because of something beyond my control? [If this is the case,] I’ll have to find another company to stay on track.” For this employee, as well as for many others, short- and long-term career appraisals are a regular part of work life.

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR PERFORMANCE REVIEWS

Many employers, especially large corporations, consider job performance reviews a standard part of the cycle. Once every six months, or once a year, your boss and sometimes your peers and subordinates too-will review your on-the-job performance based on competencies such as leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities. You will be graded, in a sense, the same way you were graded in school.

It’s natural to balk at the thought of performance reviews. Yet if you choose to ignore them, you will also be ignoring their impact on your career prospects. Indeed, performance reviews are often weighted heavily when promotion time and raise discussions come around. If you’re serious about moving ahead in your field, don’t be passive about performance reviews. Tackle them head-on. Be gracious when your strengths are pointed out, but pay more attention to the areas that need improvement. If your supervisor says that your presentation skills are lackluster, for example, make an effort to improve them. Take a public speaking seminar; maybe your company will be willing to subsidize it. There are plenty of ways to improve perceived weaknesses in your employment performance: Read books. Take classes. Enroll in online courses. Seek the advice of those who are adept in the areas that you are trying to shape up and sharpen. In the process, be sure that your supervisor is aware of your attempts at self-improvement. Don’t assume that she is in the know and will automatically take into consideration your efforts at your next performance review.

And what about those long months between reviews? Don’t wait for your employer to initiate discussions about your job performance. Approach your boss and ask, ‘Am I working up to your expectations? Do you have any suggestions for how I can become a better employee?” Being proactive about your own improvement is a great way to get noticed for the right reasons.

And speaking of getting noticed-the next time you’re praised in an e-mail, letter, or memo, be sure to keep a copy. Keep a folder for the express purpose of collecting items that illustrate your value to the company and your continuing improvement. Keep copies of your performance reviews, too. The next time you begin a job search, this folder will help to convince future employers that you’re worth hiring.

After market parts explained

After market parts explained

For a passive buyer, these things are but ordinary terms used in the automotive market but for someone meticulous and who wants the best for his auto, these things matter considerably. Deciding which among these to purchase is just like deciding what car to buy.

O.E.M. stands for Original Equipment Manufactured. This means that OEM Ford parts are manufactured by Ford itself, Chevrolet parts are manufactured by Chevrolet, Toyota parts by Toyota, BMW parts by BMW and so on. The terms O.E.S. and OE are also used; these mean Original Equipment Supplied and Original Equipment, respectively. While in many cases, OEM and OES mean the same, OE is more general referring to any part that came as original equipment on the car. Some of OE car parts and components are not actually made by the car manufacturer but are purchased and assembled by the automakers to create a vehicle.

Those referred to as “aftermarket auto parts” are not made by the original car manufacturer; furthermore, they are bought and added to the vehicle only at the dealership or after the vehicle left the dealership. In terms of design and function, aftermarket products are almost the same as the stock auto parts since they are primarily used to replace a damaged original part so that the vehicle can continue to run. If you need replacement parts for your car, however, you can either buy O.E.M. or aftermarket auto parts. There are numerous sources of aftermarket auto parts. Stores like Auto Parts Discount give you a great variety of parts for almost all makes and models.

Some cars, especially the base models are not completely equipped so users just add aftermarket parts later on. For example if you have purchased an old Toyota Corolla, you can add aftermarket Toyota fog lights, Toyota spoiler, Toyota turn signal light or Toyota mirrors. Aftermarket products can also help you give your car a fresh new look. Even if your original parts are not yet damaged or worn out, you can replace them with or add specially designed aftermarket auto parts like Honda taillights, Ford center cap, Chevrolet chrome bumper, and Mercedes Benz Front Cover Towing Eye found at Auto Parts Discount.

Enthusiasts, on the other hand would opt for custom parts and specialty equipments. Compared to a universal fit auto part, which can be installed to any vehicle make, year and model, custom aftermarket products are designed to fit only a particular application. Examples of custom parts are your Ford hood, Ford fender and Ford doors. Specialty equipments on the other hand, are intended to make the vehicle more stylish, comfortable, convenient and more up-to-date.

Most auto users prefer aftermarket products because they are less expensive than OEM replacements. While it is true that there may be some aftermarket auto parts that do not meet high standards of original equipments, it is not right to say that aftermarket products are generally inferior in terms of quality and style. Replacement parts sold at Auto Parts Discount, for example are made by car parts manufacturers that are mandated by high international standards.

Which is better, OEM or aftermarket replacement part? It depends on the product. Some OEM parts are not durable enough while the aftermarket parts you use to replace them could last for many years. If you want to give your car a different look and also, if you want to save, aftermarket products are worth a try. However, make sure to get these replacement parts from trusted sources.

How the market affects gas prices

How the market affects gas prices

A recent downturn in gas prices has come as a welcome relief to most drivers in North America. The timing, however, of the price drop has many people thinking conspiracy theory. A recent poll of Americans showed that a staggering 42 percent of respondents believe that George W. Bush and the ruling Republican administration in Washington lowered gas prices in time for the November 2006 mid-term elections. While this may or may not be the case, the various stock markets around the world do have a real time impact on the price of oil, and therefore gasoline.

The biggest culprit in the lowering of gas prices might actually be Mother Nature. In preparation for the upcoming hurricane season, many investors on Wall Street and around the world invested heavily in gas and oil futures, guessing that another direct hit by a Katrina-like storm directly on gas and oil pipelines in the Gulf of Mexico would send prices through the roof like they did last year. But a recent correction by hurricane forecasters who downgraded the 2006 hurricane season caused the price of oil to plummet and all those investors who bought futures to cry.

But it wasn’t just the hurricanes that did it. The announcement coincided with the end of the summer season for drivers, which also dragged down the price of oil. The price of oil over this time fell off the table, going from an August 7th high of a barrel to a barrel in October. It doesn’t take long for this drop in prices to be felt at the pump.

This seismic shift in oil and gas prices over such a short amount of time left many investors in deep financial trouble. At least one mutual fund that was invested heavily in oil and gas futures went belly up due to this dramatic drop in prices. At the same time, there were other funds that did quite well despite the portfolio-ruining drop in oil prices. As they say in sports, sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

While it may be naive to think that global politics never plays a part in the world’s commodity markets, it is unlikely that the sole reason for the massive and speedy drop in oil prices was due to upcoming elections. The number of variables that play on the world’s stocks, bonds and commodities is too vast in number to be influenced completely on one country’s elections.

Find Your Niche Market on Ebay

Find Your Niche Market on Ebay

Many of us dream of working from home by selling products on Ebay. But what would we sell? And how would we know if a market exists for the items we have? To avoid listing items that nobody wants, or items within an already flooded market, some research is in order. The goal of this research is to find your niche on Ebay.

Many Ebay sellers provide their goods within one niche. Others have a handful of niches that they specialize in. The key is to find a group of products that you’re already familiar with. Perhaps you’ve been a collector of antiques for many years. If so, you probably know when you come across an item that could potentially sell for a good amount of cash. Likewise, you have a good idea of which items are likely to collect dust on your shelves. You can put this knowledge to work for you on Ebay. Your expertise with antiques gives you an edge over many competitors.

Once you have a good idea of the niche you wish to fill, it’s time for the second half of your preliminary work. Start a spreadsheet that lists the different types of items you would like to sell. Then add a monetary value to each entry. This reflects how much you can expect to purchase the item for. Be realistic; you want to lay out an accurate portrait of how much money you will be spending to build up your inventory. Optimism won’t help in this circumstance.

Expand your spreadsheet to include other niche markets, just in case. These can be items you enjoy working with, have expert knowledge of, or something you’ve always had an affinity for and think you could be successful with. Remember: no matter what your niche is, someone will buy from it as long as you list quality items at reasonable prices. Estimate the initial cost of each item, including shipping and sales tax. Then prepare to immerse yourself in Ebay as your research begins in earnest.

Go to Ebay and search through the completed auctions. This allows you to see the actual price that items similar to yours have sold for. Is the average price something you could live with? Remember to factor in shipping costs. Also, pay attention to the quality of the sold items when deciding whether this niche is something you wish to pursue. Items in “mint” or “like new” condition will bring considerably higher prices on Ebay than worn, scuffed items.

Now reflect on your findings. Did the completed Ebay auctions fetch your target price, or were the closing bids uniformly low? Did any of the items fetch a surprisingly high amount? If you were unimpressed by your findings, go back and consult your spreadsheet; it’s time to start researching another niche.

If your observations were mostly positive, you may have found your Ebay niche already. In that case, go out and start building up your supply. Don’t go overboard; you’re still in the testing phase. Purchase a dozen or so items at fair prices. Then list them on Ebay.

For many sellers, waiting is the hard part. But you’ll need patience for this phase of your niche-finding project. Monitor your listings and see how they perform. If they do well, you can build up your stock even more and increase your listings. If they don’t quite live up to your expectations, you can go back to square one. Pick another niche from your spreadsheet and start researching it.

The key to finding your niche on Ebay, as with many challenges in life, is simply to never quit. If you have a wide variety of interests, you’re more likely to find a profitable niche that you will enjoy filling. Think of all the things you enjoy doing, making, or collecting. Then come up with a list of ten items related to each. This sort of brainstorming is a sure-fire remedy for pushing past your seller’s block. Let your imagination roam, and you’ll carve out your Ebay niche in no time.

Things To Remember When Trading In The Foreign Exchange Market 2

Things To Remember When Trading In The Foreign Exchange Market

You want information about trading forex and you would like to have it in a easy to understand format. If this is the case, this article will be perfect for you. We will lay out some of the most important tips and guidelines, in a way that you can quickly digest.

When looking to be a successful Forex trader, it is important that you realize how much of a risk you can take financially. One of the best things about Forex is that you can start with a few hundred dollars, but people who invest more money have a better chance of profiting. So assess your personal risk before joining so you don’t end up short-changed.

Get used to being in the minority. Many people trading in Forex markets and other stock exchanges lose, so if you want to win you’ve got to be against the tide at least some of the time. Only a few people win big and if you want that to be you, be comfortable doing something everyone isn’t doing.

Set the amount of money you use to start a Forex trade to be a percentage of the total account balance. You should never open a trade at the same dollar amount each time as that won’t grow your capital very quickly. Instead, use your profits to increase the amount you’re trading with each time.

Set a reasonable long term goal as well as short term goals for yourself. Set weekly goals followed by monthly goals for yourself and track your progress accordingly. When you set short term goals you can see how far along you’re coming along in your progress for your long term goals, and if you feel you need to make adjustments you can.

Better your forex trading abilities by reading more about self-discipline and focusing techniques. Use Pilates or other exercises to bring your body to optimum health. A sound body will lead to better trading choices and this leads to less stress and more income. Financial freedom begins with hard work.

Finding the right forex software application for your needs should be the step you take before choosing a broker. Brokers can be found everywhere, but the forex software you choose needs to be very specific to your knowledge. Find the best software first and then go on the hunt for the perfect broker.

You don’t have to trade or hold open positions all the time. If there is no reasonable trading option in the forex pair you are trading watch the market, but don’t gamble with your money. No action is the best action when you are not sure which way the market will go.

Develop a trading plan and include at least one alternate plan. If you make a plan and stick to it then you will have a great chance of success. If for some reason you need a backup plan, having one ready that you have already thought through will allow you to switch course quickly.

In conclusion, we have provided you some of the most crucial aspects regarding trading forex. We hope that you not only were able to learn something, but also will be able to apply it. Follow our advice and you will be one step closer to being an expert in this subject.

Keep track of which forex strategies have worked for you and especially those which didn’t. Recheck your statistics to see if the actions you’re taking now statistically should work, or should be changed to something that did work. Keep track of timelines and current events to see how those factored into the successes you’ve had, and then keep that in mind for future trading.

Make sure that you keep all of your transactions private, as you should not share with friends and family. Try not to get anyone else involved, as you may be dealing with a lot of money, which could cause tension in any relationship. Analyze forex trades individually and keep this hobby under the radar.

When trading stocks on the Forex, make sure not to risk more than 2-3% of your total account. A successful trader can survive multiple unfavorable trades because they don’t risk more than they can afford, while a rookie trader might gamble too much on a few trades and lose all of their money before they can recover.

A great forex trading tip is to pay close attention to world news. There’s no set time when big opportunities pop up. Opportunities can arise at all times of the day so it’s important to be vigilant in following world news and what’s going on in the market.

Do not trade unless you’re confident about what you’re doing and can defend your decisions against the critics. Never trade based on rumors, hearsay or remote possibilities. Having a clear confidence and understanding about what you’re doing, is the surest way to long term success in the marketplace.

One of the main things to have in order to become successful in foreign exchange trading is to be well financed. Having enough money to survive through the highs and lows of the forex market is important. At the start, you need to be able to know how much money you are willing to invest.

The 2-3% rule is the difference between being successful and unsuccessful.

A great tip for Forex trading is to make sure that the broker you choose is okay with day trading. It’s no secret that most brokers don’t like day trading. If your broker notices that you’ve made money day trading, they may take steps to close your account.

Trading in currency can be extremely lucrative but you can also easily get in over your head. These tips are a good basis for starting to create a plan that works for you. Make sure to start off slow, learn your way around and soon you can be trading like a pro.

Tips To Read Before Entering The Forex Market

Tips To Read Before Entering The Forex Market

With terms like uptrend and downtrend, pips, zero-sum game, and Bull and Bear markets, the lingo alone in the Forex market can cause some people to run away screaming. Understand, though, that any new avenue you explore is going to have unusual scenery. Once you comprehend the small things and learn the lay of the land, you will begin trading for dollars. This article can put you on the right track.

One good trait that successful foreign exchange traders have is that they are more objective and less emotional. The moves that you make should be based on reason and should not involve emotions. Researching on good investments should be done and it is better to win a little than lose a lot, due to an emotional trade.

Know the difference between trading currencies and trading stocks before you become involved in forex trading. Currencies are never figured in absolute values, but only in their relative strengths. This means they are also only traded in pairs; you can’t buy just one type of currency. Instead, you are buying into the value of one currency against another.

In order to make money and be successful in the foreign exchange market it is necessary for you to know when to stop. This can be done by setting a goal and stop once this is met. The most common mistake in trading are trades based on greed in which the trader keeps trading and loses all the profit he could have had.

Keep your eyes open for new trend opportunities so you do not stick with the same ones, after they have done all that they can do. Currencies will move sideways a lot more often than what they will trend. If you get yourself in the habit of trading the same currencies, you may trick yourself into seeing trends that are not really there.

Don’t waste your time looking for leading indicators when you’re trading on the forex market. There aren’t any to find, so your search will be fruitless. Some companies claim to sell software that can predict how the market will move, but don’t fall for their claims. If they could really tell the future, they wouldn’t share the secret.

Use other methods, but also do your own analysis. While programs and statistics are great to help you with your analysis, the best way to truly learn the system is to analyze it yourself. This is a great way to give your own insights and gain the experience you need to do on the fly trades.

Study the Forex markets before buying positions. Many people see Forex as a get rich quick scheme, but like any activity you’ve got to study a little before getting heavily involved. You’ll find the markets much kinder to your account when you learn a bit first about the markets themselves.

It’s unfamiliar territory to be sure, but Forex is a landscape you can learn with the right information and the right focus. Use what you’ve learned in this article to your advantage and begin by informing yourself fully on the market in general before you attempt to invest your capital. Start slow and then grow.

Simple Tips For Foreign Exchange Market Traders (2)

Simple Tips For Foreign Exchange Market Traders

Taking a step into the wondrous and complex land of currency trading for the very first time might feel a tad bit daunting, but by keeping the helpful tips listed below in mind, you will soon find yourself trading currency on par with some of the best traders in the market.

One thing to note that can help you in your forex endeavors is to constantly check fluctuations among various currencies. You want to see if you find a pattern that you can use to your advantage. If you do find a pattern then try and see if you can make enough profit from it after you make some currency exchanges.

Learn trading signals, and know what they will mean for you. The market has many different signals used in it, and an experienced trader is more likely to be able to interpret this for their benefit. If you do not understand these signals, you should study them, or ask for help.

Forex is less risky than the regular stock exchange market and other activities involving investment. However, there is still a risk inherent to trading. If you are not comfortable with taking risks, you will not find Forex to be rewarding and it will bring a lot of stress for you. Perhaps you should think about another activity.

Keep your drama out of forex trading. Remember that everybody wins, and everybody loses from time to time. If you lose, avoid the temptation to engage in “revenge trading”. This is just a waste of time and an immature decision. Just take your losses as a mark of experience and move on to make a better decision next time.

It is always important that you learn from your successes and your failures. As with anything, you must take notes when you begin trading Forex. When something goes wrong, make sure you do not do that again. When something goes right, make sure you remember what you did to make everything end well.

Learn the technical language used in the currency trading world. When reading informative forex news articles, there may be terms used that you do not understand. By keeping a glossary of commonly used forex terms at hand you will be able to quickly find out what the terms mean and the greater your understanding of the news articles will be.

Do not feel as though you can wreak revenge on the market. Revenge trading often tries to pull in a huge profit within a day or two, but successful trading takes much more time than that. Allowing angry emotions to cloud your vision of trading will only result in a loss of money.

Never stop learning. The time spent on in-depth research is perhaps the best investment that you can make when it comes to forex trading. Even if you have all the capital and luck in the world, you will fail if you lack the knowledge needed to be a successful trader.

So, after reading and applying the helpful tips listed above, you should feel a bit more at ease in the land of trading currency. You have the tools; it’s time to use them. You should feel empowered and ready to begin your currency trading journey to reach for better trades and larger profits.

Let’s Review A Few Things Before Entering The Forex Market

Let’s Review A Few Things Before Entering The Forex Market

Whether you will be successful with forex is not a matter of luck or of having experience as a stock market broker. What you need to succeed with forex is the proper training, and a proper understanding of how the market works. These tips should explain you the basics behind forex, and help you get started with your education.

Forex trading success requires someone who can accept risk and not get scared of losing money. You must play with cash which you do not need to pay your rent, your car payments, or your grocery bills. This will ensure that you can accept any risk that will lead you to a reasonable reward.

Pay careful attention to the first and second moves in an RSI when dealing with oversold or over bought regions. The first move is usually just a warning, while the second move is the critical move. If the second move does not confirm the price move into new lows or new highs, a possible divergence exists. That is the point you need to make some sort of defensive action to protect your existing positions.

Keep your emotions out of the trade. Some people feel a bit competitive and even want revenge when they have lost a trade, and all that can come from it is further loss. If you lose a trade, simply move forward and learn from your previous attempts in Forex trading.

Demo trading in Forex can be a useful way to learn about the trading process and test out your strategies in a safe environment. But the very lack of risk can also reinforce bad habits. The reality is that you don’t lose anything in an environment where there is no skin in the game. Many of the most valuable lessons about restraint, balance and tolerance of uncertainty are only learned in a live environment with true risks and rewards.

Research, research, research. It’s important to stay current. All currencies move quickly, so checking the price once a week is not going to help you make strong, long-term returns. It is helpful to use an online provider that provides you with up-to-the-minute data and statistics. Traders use data to constantly assess their trading positions.

Remember that the forex market might not be busy on weekends. You can still sell and buy, but it might be hard to get immediate responses. You should check the situation on Friday nights and decide if you want to keep what you have over the weekend or sell it before that.

Examine other trading systems, and use them to build your own. If you find that most systems in place are not ones you want to use, you can pick pieces that you like from each one to create your own system. For some traders, this can take years, but a healthy profit gain is worth the time.

If you are new to forex, your next step is to look for additional material. You should understand every mechanism of the market. When you are ready, open a demo account and start practicing until you make the right decision every time. When you can do that, you are ready to start trading with real money.

Is The FOREX The Market To Trade Your Way to Riches?

Is The FOREX The Market To Trade Your Way to Riches?

Ever watch the news and see the ending FOREX trades of the currency markets? They’re usually based on how individual currencies traded against the dollar. FOREX is the abbreviation for the Foreign Exchange market. FOREX is a market where the value of individual currencies from all over the world are traded. The currency market today began in the 1970’s as currencies that were historically tied to the gold standard, or the price of gold, were decoupled and allowed to float.

So instead of a dollar having a gold based value, it’s value is now determined by the other currencies in the world. FOREX can be an investors paradise as it’s as close to a free trading market as you can get. Almost anyone can invest in FOREX because it’s simply the trading of 1 currency for another.

So how does this work? Let’s say that you believe the United States market is going to be suffering from inflation. That is, the value of the dollar, over the next year or so is going to go down….and all 100 dollars of your savings is in US dollars.
One way to trade the FOREX would be to trade your savings in dollars for a currency you believe will be more valuable or stable like the EURO as an example. For this example, let’s say one dollar is worth 2 Euros and remember this is an example only. So the trade is 100 US dollars for 200 European EUROS.

Next, let’s say your right and inflation does hit the US hard and the value of the dollar drops by 10%. Be aware that when talking about currency we’re talking not about the number of dollars and other currencies but the value of those currencies. That is, what it can buy or it’s actual worth.
So in our example, if you kept your savings in US dollars it would now be worth only 90% of the value it held last year. Because you have your savings in EUROS however and that market has remained stable, the VALUE of your savings has been protected. The reason is that the FOREX trading markets will adjust the value of the dollar because of the inflation and raise the value of the Euro appropriately. So in this example, a US dollar would be worth about 1.8 Euros.

To complete the example, your savings of 200 EUROS could be traded back into US dollars. Because of the inflation however and the value of the dollar went down so you can now trade your 200 EUROS for about 110 US dollars.

Almost anyone can invest in FOREX, and there are strategies for investors who look for long term and short term gains. For those of you who are interested in forex trading, the very first stop is to get some good training and understand the markets. Unlike the private markets where stocks, bonds and commodities are traded, FOREX is currency which belongs to the individual governments. Currency manipulations by governments is not uncommon, while decisions they make can dramatically change the value of their underlying currency.

While many people and currency dealers can make it sound easy, the only thing easy in making any investment is losing your money. It’s important to remember that currency dealers make their money through commissions and usually not on the investment they’re selling. The example we used above, although very simplistic, had a number of risk factors and additional costs we didn’t consider. Things like trading costs, and the assumption that one government held their currency completely stable, which is not usual, while another did not.

Many people involved with FOREX say a lot of money can be made trading currency. They’re correct of course, but you can also lose a lot of money also. So get training, learn the markets and trade smart.
