Quantcast
I have 23 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Always the devils advocate; Here are some bad things that happened with this trade.

    1. You had a profit for a while
    2. You could have got out with a small loss
    3. You turned a trade into an investment
    4. You could have invested in your favorite dividend stock and made 10% in 3hrs with the capital you have tied up.
    5. You are still holding it.

    Making a decision to hold a stock is the same as make a decision to buy it.
    It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

    Finally completely out of FB at 174. Have gains of 128% to 141%. Lost initially when sold at 28 after buying at 38. Daughter has a nearly 320% gain , but unfortunately only could afford 2 shares. Son must have sold before 2015, can't find records before that. Should have held at IPO price. Hindsight always 20/20.
