Investing Vs. Gambling with Your Account

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The stock market is in a always in a position to create monetary rewards as long as your trades are solid and you have a good exit plan. Investors can see that they can gain quick cash profits right now if they make certain moves, but that sounds a lot like gambling. So what is the difference between gambling and investing? Make sure to watch Dave Ramsey’s video answer below.

The truth is that there is a fine line between investing in a something and gambling. The intentions that you have when you make your investment can make a huge difference between whether you are considered an investor or a gambler. Getting in and out of trades daily is the hardest way to trade and makes your investment style the closest to gambling.

When Is It Investing?

Investing uses a few strategies for its processes:

You are investing if you search for businesses that have a strong background of steady financial gain and reliable customers. Those are fundamental successes, and they can work well for you when you invest. Watch demand for the companies products over time and going forward.

You don't really have to understand the numbers that well. You can still make intelligent investments, and you can wait patiently to see if you have success with those investments. Investments sometimes need time to grow, but you don't mind. Get in slowly with additional purchases on dips. Watch the overall market to make sure something fundamental doesn’t change. Make sure the industry is sold and remains sold while you hold your position. And get out of the investment if things begin to break down in the ways we have discussed.

Winning the office pool this March for the NCAA Tournament is something that needs to be claimed on your taxes as a gambling win. Luckily you can offset the win with any gambling loses that you had during the year. Keep track of your loses so you do not need to pay taxes this year on the gain. Winning the brackets is never easy but in case you have the best one in your office, keep some things in mind.

Spread betting has thrived since the dotcom crash of 2002 and seemed to escape relatively unscathed as a strategy in the aftermath of the credit crunch. Although now regarded as a “legitimate” investment strategy, at its core spread-betting is still gambling, not investing. You are taking a punt on the future movement (either up or down) of a share price, index or a commodity just as you would on a race track.
