Troublesome investing facts: Seventh of many

  1. There are 60 stock exchanges in the world. Most have thousands of listed companies. Most get most investors burned.
  2. Sixteen of these exchanges have a market capitalization of more than $1 trillion and account for nearly 90% of global market capitalization.
  3. The New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ have more market cap between them than the rest of these exchanges combined.
  4. The New York Stock Exchange is the most heavily regulated, protecting investors from con artists.
  5. Nevertheless, the average investor trails the New York Stock Exchange, as represented by S&P 500,  by 40%!

Finally, unrelated to the above, please note that we offer a free half-hour discussion to allow you to see if our one-on-one coaching program ($C300.00  including taxes) interests you. We show how to equal the New York Stock Exchange and how to outperform over 95% of portfolios over a market cycle (peak to trough to peak). Contact me at
