Consumersforinternetcompetition.com was created based on the simple principle that young investors, mainly college students cannot invest in the same way that adults, career personnel, institutions, or even Jim Cramer can and do. College investors are generally limited by their expendable trading capital, and therefore are hugely affected by the transactional costs, limiting the number of shares bought. While a $.50 or $1 price increase may mean profits for the average investor, and excite Wall Street analysts, a college investor may have yet to even cover the transaction costs, and may not cover the transaction costs without a large price increase. All of this however, does not mean that you can't invest or be successful in your investments as a college student. New technology and the introduction of cheap online brokerage firms have made it easier for amateurs to invest. The tools that used to be reserved for the trading desks at Fortune 500 financial firms are now online for anyone to use. Stock screeners, interactive charts, strategy testing, forecasting models, and live market data make it possible to safely and cheaply venture into the financial markets.
Consumersforinternetcompetition stands as a resource and gathering place for all college students and young people trying to invest in today’s market. The information, articles, tutorials, and reviews on Consumersforinternetcompetition are tailored specifically for the college investor. We take the time to find what is relevant for investors our own age. Consumersforinternetcompetition also wants to provide a place for college students to share ideas and strategies with other peers. Therefore, we have created the Consumersforinternetcompetition forum, where you can go and discuss current market news that affects young investors, different trading strategies, and hot securities.
