Trading is an active style of participating in the financial markets that seeks to outperform traditional buy-and-hold investing. Rather than trying to profit from long-term uptrends in the markets, traders look for short-term price moves to profit in both rising and falling markets.As a trader, one of the most important things you can do to improve your chances of success is to approach trading as a business. A successful trading business requires a strategic plan that covers your actual business and your actual trading. Your business plan will include things like short and long-term goals, the amount of capital you have available for the business and how you will set up your office. Your trading plan includes the details of trading: what you will trade and how you will trade it. Your plan should be so objective and concise that you could hand it over to another trader and they would be able to execute it exactly.It’s important to understand that your trading plan is not simply a set of rules that you think will work, a list of set-ups that you are somehow fond of, or someone else’s plan. A good trading plan is one that you have researched, tested on historical data, tested in a live market and continue to evaluate at regular intervals.Successful trading involves more than reading a few articles or books, and you should plan on devoting a substantial amount of time and effort before ever placing a trade in a live market. This can be difficult because most new traders are anxious to get in the market. While the research and time commitments may sound daunting, they're a realistic and integral part of becoming a profitable, independent trader.This tutorial serves as an introduction to help you get started trading. For more information, be sure to check out part two of our series, which covers more advanced topics including charting, leverage, risk and strategy automation. Many people who become interested in trading are first introduced to the financial markets through investing.The purpose of investing is to build wealth slowly over time, and this is typically accomplished through a buy-and-hold approach: making investments – such as in a stock, ETF or mutual fund – and allowing price to fluctuate over time. Investors “ride out” the inevitable downtrends with the expectation that prices will eventually rebound and rise over the long-term.After years or decades, the investment will, in many cases, increase in value and provide positive returns for the investor. Long-term returns can be further amplified by compounding through the reinvestment of profits and dividends. Investments are often viewed as a means of building wealth to provide stability and income during the retirement years.While investments are typically held for a period of years or even decades, traders buy and sell stocks, commodities, currency pairs and various other investment vehicles with the intention of generating returns that outperform a buy-and-hold strategy. Trading profits are viewed as income since profits are “taken off the table” on a regular basis (as opposed to investing, where positions are generally left alone for the long haul).Trading profits are achieved through buying low and selling high – and selling high and buying (to cover) low, in the case of short selling – and all trades are entered and exited within a relatively short period of time. This time period can vary from a few seconds to months or even years, depending on the trader’s style. The following chart lists the four primary trading styles - position, swing, day and scalp – with the corresponding time frames and holding periods for each.

JurnalHarian.com – Siapa yang tak senang belanja alias shopping. Beli baju, mainan, ponsel sampai makanan.

Tapi sadarkah Anda, barang yang dibeli itu sebenarnya bukan kebutuhan primer atau kebutuhan mendesak.

Namun, karena memiliki daya tarik secara magis sehingga Anda mau saja keluar uang untuk memborong barang-barang tersebut.

Perlu pembeli sadari, ada berbagai macam cara yang dilakukan pedagang agar jualannya laris manis, pertama memberikan harga murah, kedua mengandalkan keramahannya kepada pembeli, ketiga menghias tempat berjualannya, keempat memberikan kredit dan terakhir adalah dengan Penglaris.

Di Indonesia khususnya masyarakat Banjar sebutan penglaris yang digunakan pedagang sudah tidak asing lagi.

Bahkan banyak berseliweran cerita orang-orang tentang Penglaris ini. Salah satu yang paling terkenal adalah mitos penglaris di Gunung Kawi, Jawa Timur.

Konon, kalau mau jualannya laris harus mengikuti ritual-ritual tertentu, dari meletakkan sesaji, membakar dupa, dan bersemedi berjam-jam, berhari-hari, bahkan berbulan-bulan.

Namun di daerah Kalsel, khususnya Kota Banjarbaru, Penglaris juga ada, seperti pengalaman orang yang pernah memakainya, sebut saja namanya Mama Aman.

Penjual baju perempuan dewasa ini mengatakan sempat menggunakan Penglaris berupa minyak yang dioleskan ke barang dagangan.

“Kalau saya gelar dagangan saya oleskan ke barang terserah saja dimana, sedikit saja,” ujarnya kepada reporter Banjarmasinpost.co.id, Sabtu (07/04/2018).

Awalnya ungkap Mama Aman dagangannya laris, banyak pembeli dan penghasilan pun lumayan banyak.

Namun entah sudah kadaluwarsa atau apa, lama kelamaan jimat minyak Penglaris sudah tidak ampuh lagi. “Pembeli pun akhirnya biasa-biasa saja,” ungkap Mama Aman.

Ditanya dimana mendapatkan Penglaris tersebut, Mama Aman menyebutkan di Kabupaten Tabalong.

Sedang harganya Mama Aman menyebutkan cuma Rp 150 Ribu per botol.

“Saya juga coba-coba saja dulu,” ujarnya.

Bisa saja menurutnya, karena harga Penglaris yang belinya tergolong murah, sehingga efeknya tak bertahan lama.

Sejak saat itu, ujar Mama Aman, dirinya tak pernah lagi membeli Penglaris untuk dagangannya. “Pokoknya seadanya saja,” katanya.

Beda Pakai Penglaris Atau Tidak

Tak semua orang mampu membedakan antara warung atau toko berpenglaris dengan tidak.
