That’s right, The Billy Blog has joined the exciting world of trading on the stock market. The first purchase? $100 worth of WWE on the NYSE. As a proud owner of the biggest name in sports entertainment, all of the superstars now answer to me. Now that I am a major investor, even the Chairman, Vincent K. McMahon himself, must seek my approval!
He may be the boss’s son-in-law, but now Triple H works for me!
What’s that, John Cena? I can’t see you? Please. I own you!
Even the mighty King Sheamus must bow down before my importance!!!
Well, I guess kneeling is OK, too.
You might be wondering just how I, a one-time nobody, could make such a landmark financial acquisition. It was actually very easy.

My mom had been using this online trading website called ShareBuilder (through ING Direct) for awhile, and when she showed it to me, I really liked its format and ease of use.
Fast forward several months, and I happened to see that ShareBuilder was offering a $50 bonus on your first $50 deposit for a new account. Well, I’ll take a free $50 any day of the week! But yes, before you say it, I am aware that there is no such thing as a free lunch; I realize that they can offer this bonus because they will probably (probably!) eventually make it back through trading fees and the like, but if you are the least bit interested in online trading (as well as a free $50!), you should check it out. If you are mindful, the $50 goes a long way. In fact, I’m pretty sure that you could game the system by depositing your $50, receiving the bonus, investing and let it sit for 90 days, and then cashing out. Even if you don’t want to game the system, it’s a great offer, because you can purchase stocks for just $4 a trade. They have a ton of additional investment options at a range of prices, but for the beginning investor, or even someone who knows what he wants and doesn’t want to hassle with a middleman (for example, market savvy investors such as myself), $4 a trade is one of the best prices around, especially when you’re paying for it with your $50 bonus.

Additionally, ShareBuilder has been sending me all kinds of offers to make me love them even more. I signed up in time to get a birthday present from them – one free trade (that’s a $4 value, baby!!!). There’s also an offer for a free trial of the premium services, which gives you (up to 12) free trades for a month, which I plan on utilizing when next I expand my portfolio. You even get free trades if you get someone else to join! (that’s where you come in) Again, if you have any inkling of trading online yourself, whether it be big bucks or just a little for fun, check it out.

In your face, Ted Turner! I’m way more successful of a wrestling investor than you’ll ever be!!!
