When it comes to finances and investing, one of the greatest fears people face is that of fraud or scams. We understand this. As result, in order to increase the transparency and confidence of our fund, we recently launched the Apiary Promise.
Yes! There are so many variables to investing; often it is difficult for the average investor to know where to begin. To make it easier for investors to understand their personal investing type, Apiary Fund launched its Investor Profile.
Silas shares his story on how he got involved with Apiary fund.
I started working for Apiary Fund in 2013. Before I got involved, I had never traded before; I don’t think I had even used a computer. I had been a union worker out of Local 27 for ten years. I never had enough money to even think about trading, or learn what forex was. If it wasn’t for Shawn, I know I wouldn’t be here…
Everyone knows that Apiary fund is made of traders, but did you know that we have a professional football player right here in our midst? That’s right. Drafted by the BC Lions in Vancouver, Paul Allen grew up playing ball and decided to play for BYU in 1959.
A frequently asked question is, “What is a high probability trade?”
When you sit down for a good trading session, finding a trade setup isn’t that hard-but there are trading setups, and then there are high probability trading setups. In fact, in any given trading session you’ll only have a few setups with that coveted high probability quality that pays so handsomely!
The Apiary Fund is helping people break the trading psychology barriers that are holding them back from success in the financial markets. Each week we’re focusing on a different psychological barrier to help you better see it and beat it!
Today’s obstacle is the psychological phenomenon called fight or flight!
Bigger is better, right? Well, traditionally, yes. However, sometimes a new way or an original idea is just downright better than conventional methods. Take, for example, a fight between the big guy and the little guy. What advantages does each one have, and who will win?
|Big Guy||Little Guy|
|Muscle Mass||Not muscle bound|
|Powerful hits||Fast, successive strikes|
|More damage per connection||Better angle for body striking|
|Better long range||Better short range|
Usually when we think of delusions we imagine mental disorders: someone struggling with schizophrenia or hypochondria. We may even imagine somebody we know–somebody who is high-strung with anxiety and convinced the world is out to get them. There are some pretty bizarre delusions out there:
One thing I’ve struggled with is indecision. While it is good to want to the best decision, sometimes indecision has the ability to freeze us – which is not so good while trading. Feeling stuck between two choices while trading can lead to lost opportunity and money. My father recognized my reluctance to make choices when I was still pretty young and has tried to help me recognize the value in making correct choices quickly.
