Quantcast
I have 35 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.

    Perhaps, you might find paper trading a better fit for yourself over the period of a few months. Then once you have a better feel and a clearly defined method for trading (which you might have right now?), go at with the dollars?

    Hi Lyehopper
    POTW, it's not poem of the week or picture of the week is it? lol heheheahahaha ok sorry

    (step 5) invest in a stock that you have done much research on.... ask the fellas here what they think about your pick and your entry timing. Become a student of the market. Don't buy stocks on a "tip".... Again!!! do very thourough research on your own.

    Ok I like that. How can I learn about timing?
    As for researching, I read what I is on yahoo or google news. Do I need to go deeper?

    StkyTreat,

    This is a good piece of advice. The only problem is your real money is stale for that time. Maybe find an alternative investment until you are ready to buy your stock.

    Are you going to have a time frame for your investments? days, weeks, months, years?

    In the grand scheme of things, I am learning the market as well. I'm sure you can't find anyone who isn't still learning things today, so don't think that any of your questions are stupid. We've probably all asked the same questions before, so keep them coming.

    There are some great, smart, and financially successful people on this little piece of the internet. Hopefully, you'll be guided by these people to grow that $2800 into a few more shares of brka. Good Luck

    It means keep my mouth shut, listen, learn, and know when to ask question. Be patient by not jumping the gun. Do studying on the stocks I am interested in? Getting information and thinking about it before I do somthing stupid, I dunno?

    no, you're doing great, kid. what he's saying is that he'd like to go into greater detail to explain something to you, but you'd probably be better off figuring it out on your own- the market is a great teacher.

    There are no stupid questions only stupid attitudes. Develope emotional control, patience, a strategy or plan for entry (trigger price), exit (stops), an a target just in case you make a few points unexpectedly. If you build on these items regardless of the way you trade you'll be successful over the long term. It might take you awhile to get complete control of your emotions to perform the other items I mentioned but those are the things you have to do with every trade. In that order one will build upon the other an if your money holds out you might just make it. Without the control an a disciplined plan you can forget it and just put it into a CD or some bonds.

    No.... You said nothing stupid....

    question.... Do you know what a "moving average" is?

    EDIT: Answer this hypothetical question too.... If your goal was to become an expert Bluegrass Banjo picker (not just a novice.... but the very best around).... How would you set out to accomplish that goal?.... compose your answer in steps.

    example:
    (1)
    (2)
    (3)
    etc....

    If I may, regarding "stale money", anytime you have funds that are not committed, you can always do one of two things to safely let the cash work for you. The first is obviously, a money market. The second is commercial paper. GE issues CP that is good for 2 days to 270 days, and you can pick up a modicum return (a few basis points). GE CP is the only non- gov't issued AAA paper out there. Very secure, and a great place for short term cash. It comes in increments starting at $10,000. If you don't have the $10K to put in, check the mmkt rates on the sweep account at your BD.
