I think making money in the volatile stock market these days is more or less a crap shoot. If you 're a risk taker and have money to invest however there are all kinds of ways to do it. Like through a company called Wicked Profits.Wickedprofits.com is an option advisory service that focuses on making consistent returns under all market conditions using stock index options.They issue trade recommendations and if you agree with their advice, you then place the trades that they recommend with the brokerage of your choice. They are not a brokerage themselves, but offer recommendations only. They've been in business since 2000 and because their service targets small returns each month, they have historically been able to maintain an extremely high win ratio of over 80% . Not bad! So review their website and if you think it's something you'd like to try then go for it! As with any type of investment though, you should only invest capital you can afford to lose. Investing is risky business and no one can make guarantees regarding your success. Past performance does not guarantee future performance and like any other investing service you can either win or lose. Like I said investing is a real crap shoot - so I say invest prudently!
