Surest way to get rich via the market.
Caveat: this only works if you don't have a conscience. I only offer it as a cautionary tale for naieve newbies.
1. Start a website and monthly online newsletter. Distribute it free by email to friends, etc. Do NOT maintain an archive online.
2. Each month recommend several highly volatile equities, particularly small and micro-caps. Balance with a few hedges, alternative investments that should outperform in a down market.
3. Some of your picks will do great (even if your complete portfolio is a disaster). Highlight these (i.e., cherry-pick) on your website and in a marketing email. "If you had bought SUC when I recommended it in March 2013 you would have made 88% in the next three months." "If you had shorted KER when I told readers to in August 2008 you would have made money during the next six months when everyone else was losing their shirts!"
4. Offer your newletter for $99 a year with automatic renewals at $49 a year.
5. Whatever you do, do NOT follow your own trading recommendations!
