Unemployed? You Can Still Earn Money Trading

You can open a brokerage account when unemployed. However, it could be difficult to trade if you don’t have other income sources. A lot of uncertainty has plagued 2020 with Covid-19 resulting in many job losses globally.

There are no jobs available in most cases and those that are, have hordes of people after them. You can, however, consider trading in the stock market if you have money on the side.

Enough money to invest wisely

Don’t start investing money if you don’t have enough saved up. You could have a good nest egg, though, and even in these uncertain times, it could pay to invest wisely to earn while jobless. It would be a sound investment to read more on The Stork Dork to see how this is possible and the road to follow.

If you can put aside enough for three months’ worth of rent or mortgage, debt and living expenses and you still have spare, then think of investing carefully and wisely.

Highly rated corporate bonds

Further, top analysts advise that the unemployed can look to highly rated corporate bonds, bond mutual funds and bond exchange traded funds.

With corporate bonds, you can start with a modest $30 trading bonus for those who open their first trading account. This is granted by XM (who has over 1.5 million clients), who also allows you to test products and services without a deposit. You can trade over a 1 000 XM items on the XM MT4 and MT5 platforms.

Monthly dividends

Make money with trading in bond mutual funds, by interest on securities owned or selling bonds with profit to accrue. Bond Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) pay out a monthly dividend and capital gains on an annual dividend.

All the above considers that you have excess money to spare in investment. If stocks drop dramatically and there are losses, it won’t necessarily mean that you will become homeless!

Adverse effects?

While certain stocks can be in a stable environment for a lengthy period, there’s no guarantee that they could not become unstable due to adverse effects, especially in current market climatic conditions.

However, if trends have shown stability over a long period, you can probably place a safe bet. It’s best that you read up on as much market news as possible. Forget the trends of other years and concentrate on 2020 as this is an extraordinary year.

Forex a good fit

You can also consider the foreign exchange market. Foreign exchange, or forex, as the name implies, deals with foreign currency. Daily trading volume in forex is more than $5.1 trillion.

Forex is a global compound where currencies are pitted against each other. It is the trading of the various world currencies and hence is a hugely vital and voracious arena.

No common central marketplace

Currency trading happens electronically all over the world, rather than at a common central marketplace. This market is continually active. Forex is a huge trading arena with many branches, arms, and legs.

While you are jobless, think of stock market investment as a future career path. Get to know all the intricacies of trading. Consider going to night school if you land another job meanwhile and you see that job as merely a “filler.”

All in all, have enough money to cover at least three months’ rent or mortgage and debts. Take an online course and refer to good material to learn more about trading if you land another job. This could be your future career. Treat it as such.
