Stock market prices go up, and they go down. Sometimes the rise or fall is limited to a few shares, occasionally the whole market is affected. This cyclical peak and trough pattern is natural, but the strength and length of the rise or fall varies considerably.

Many private investors are utterly bemused and bewildered. But as the market changes and we get used the altered roles of banks and financial institutions, there will be plenty of opportunities to make money and secure good returns on your investments.

It will help you preserve your hard earned capital by limiting the downside of risk, explain how to carry out your own due diligence to ensure that your selections have the strength to survive temporary setbacks, and above all it will show you how to find safe, and profitable, investment opportunities.
