Now Learn to Read Trading Charts and Confirm With Indicators from me

Traditional investment guidelines suggest that investing stock will, over time, return the best, most consistent profits. This assumes that your money is going to be invested over long term on stable companies. This plan does not speak for a day trader or someone who wants some stock tips to invest on their own.
It's not unusual to see advertisements for trading education and see a wall of monitors with dozens of indicators and charts adorning the background. This may be understandable if the individual is a professional trader and following half a dozen different markets. This is generally not the case though; it's been my experience that many retail traders may have up to six monitors with a battery of a dozen indicators following every imaginable market variable.

Search for Study of Prospectors, Analyzers, and Defenders and many more

<h1>Alignment between business strategy and IS strategy is widely believed to improve business performance. This paper examines the impact of alignment on perceived business performance using Miles and Snows popular classification of Defender, Analyzer, and Prospector business strategies. A priori theoretical profilesfor these business strategies are developed using Venkatraman's (1989a) measure of business strategy. Theoretical profiles for IS strategies are developed in terms of four types of systems—operational support systems Empirical data from two multirespondent surveys of 164 and 62 companies, respectively, are analyzed. Alignment seems to influence overall business success in Prospectors and Analyzers but not in Defenders. Implications for future research and practice are discussed.

Companies That Hire Home-Based Workers for their efficiancy

Companies That Hire Home-Based Workers for their efficiancy

Consider how much time you spend on packing your lunch, sitting in rush hour twice a day, deciding which grocery store is easiest to get to on the way home—not to mention the money you spend on dry cleaning your clothes.

Thanks to e-mail, remote desktops, PDAs and other technology, you can bypass these inconveniences and just work from home.

Many employers now include optional work-from-home days as an employee perk, and others are even making certain positions permanently home-based. In the last few years, the job market has seen an influx of companies that only hire at-home workers.

Plenty of people who are choosing to work for these companies. A recent CareerBuilder survey finds that over 27 percent of employees telecommute at some point during the year. The chance to put in a full day’s work while wearing pajamas is too appealing to pass up.

Who’s hiring?
A variety of companies hire home-based workers, and many entrepreneurs are starting their own businesses based out of their homes. The following companies offer work-from-home opportunities to job seekers:

• Alpine Access: A call center company that uses home-based customer service representatives to handle calls for a variety of companies, including J. Crew and 1-800-Flowers. 

• Arise: Matches work-from-home agents with open positions in sales, technical support and customer service.

• Convergys: Hires home-based agents to serve as customer service, technical assistance or sales agents for clients.

• Liveops: Customer service calls for a variety of major corporations are routed through this center and answered by people who work from home. 

• Staffcentrix: Finds virtual assistants who perform a variety of administrative and other business tasks from their home for CEOs and other clients. 

• VirtuServe: A call center that hires home agents for various services, such as telemarketing, help desk support and survey research.

• VIPdesk: Home-based concierge and customer service agents are hired to work with various companies. 

• West Corporation: Finds customer service agents based out of their homes for a variety of industries, including pharmaceutical, retail and hospitality.

Tips for your search
When looking for companies that hire work-from-home employees, here are some things to consider:

• Beware of work-from-home job postings that sound ideal but require you to pay a fee, transfer money, set up a bank account or give too much personal information up front. Research the company before you apply for a position to ensure it’s legitimate. A little homework can help you avoid the many scams out there. 

• Make sure you understand the expenses involved with working from home. A high-speed Internet connection, mobile phone, printer and other items might be necessary to perform your job, so know what you’ll need and what you can afford. Check with a financial adviser to see if you can write off any of this equipment when you file your taxes.

• If you want to work at home so you can spend more time with your children or aren’t looking for a full-time job, don’t apply for positions that will be high-stress and have long hours. Working from home can be just as demanding as working in an office, so search wisely.

• Use search terms on job boards like “home office,” “telecommute” and “work from home.”

Tips for working from home
When you do land that home-based job, here are some tips to make your transition from the cubicle to the home office easier:

• Stick to a schedule. Although you’re not at the office and nobody’s monitoring you, a schedule helps you stay on task and avoid procrastination.

• Eat lunch. When you’re at the office, the lunch hour is when you get to step away from your desk and run errands, meet up with a friend or enjoy your lunch outside. Make sure you give yourself this time to do what you want so that you’re not as tempted to mix work and personal time throughout the day.

• Location is everything. If you’re in front of the TV and an arms-length from the pantry you’ll never get anything done. Dedicate a room or area in your home for work so that you won’t be tempted to do spend your day watching talk shows and eating chips.
