Seems that our “Links for Charity” program is getting popular! We now have 2 more sponsors under this program bringing the total charitable contributions to $75! When the account reaches $100, I will put up a poll for you to decide which charity to donate to.
Lets begin by introducing Stock Trading 101. Blain, the man behind Stock Trading 101, has created an educational site to teach the basics of stock trading. In a very short time period, he has created a large following. You’ve probably heard about Stock Trading 101 if you’ve been reading this blog for a while because of his stock pick competitions. Here is some information about Blain:
My name Blain Reinkensmeyer and I am guy behind Stock Trading 101. This blog really came about through other blogs I have written and been a part of in the past. I love stocks, I love writing, and I love teaching, so to me this is my dream job.
I currently live in Michigan, USA. I am still a youngin, being only 19 years old. I dropped out of school after my freshman year of college to trade stocks full time, and have been doing so ever since. I started taking interest in the stock education area last year while doing research on different web sites that offer stock resources, products, etc. What I found is that just about everything these days comes with a price tag, and most of the time that price tag really isn’t even worth it. Something about paying someone hundreds to thousands of dollars to teach you what you should have access to for free hits my nerves. So, my first solution? I went ahead and created the Falkin Investing Organization, which is a non-profit dedicated to the stock market. The site’s sole purpose is to connect traders of all experience levels together without “must buy” products and services.
Our next sponsor is a personal favorite site that I have been visiting for YEARS. Please welcome RedFlagDeals.com/PriceCanada.com! Red Flag Deals is the premiere Canadian site that finds you deals! I particularly enjoy reading the “Hot Deals Forum” where hot deals from around Canada are mentioned first by other deal seekers. I also contribute regularly to the “Personal Finance Forum“. Red Flag Deals is the site where I found the COSTCO and Air Canada deals that I mentioned here.
PriceCanada.com is a newer site that does comparison shopping for you. If any of you are like me, then you do extensive research comparing prices/features of any large item that you purchase. This site is especially great for techies like me because they do a superb job of comparing prices of electronics.
Thanks again guys for your charitable donation!
