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.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I like this sector for 2007 and 2008. The highway and transportation infrastructure bill passed last year should give this and some other companies that I watch a nice boost in business over the next few years.

    Peanuts,
    If you could help me out with the intraday time of sale prices it would be a big help. That is the only thing that I am going to need help with probable everyday as something with my broker has changed and I can't get the intraday time of sale prices anymore after the close and I can't gurarantee that I will be watching that closely everyday during the day to get all of the changes. Thanks.

    I am not quite sure about dependability, but http://finance.yahoo.com has nice intraday charts with minute intervals, like this.

    At first, I was logging into my Ameritrade account and finding the intraday prices in that manner, but once Yahoo Finance began offering the test version of their 1 day charts, I began to use that to find the prices. Nobody found any discrepencies, so I guess it was working OK.... but be careful of the daily opening prices from Yahoo- as Rob once pointed out, the prices may take a few days before they are settled.

    as far as my trade prices today - exited UA at $46.96 and entered B short at $24.12

    RL exited at $8.98

    Riverbabe entered at $35

    That's pretty discouraging. Did you notice that from 3rd place last week at one point, I dropped to dead last? My luck has been abyssmal lately, both in the POTW and personally.

    Don't worry too much, Babe. Same thing has happened to me, lately. Market dynamics change all the time, so the same strategy isn't as effective throughout the entire timeline; but if the strategy is good, then you'll do just fine in the long run. Ernie can tell you that, too.

    I think I've just been working way too hard recently. Even had to work 8 hours on Saturday and 6 on Sunday (all intense scientific creative writing on the computer). Was that any way to spend a sunshiny weekend? But I watched "The Queen" on DVD. That was fun. Need a break. Maybe will sell in May and go away for a few months. The market is way too tricky right now. Riverbabe

    The Costanza Doctrine, from Nigel Davies
    April 3, 2007

    This has been used of late in a political context, but the Costanza Doctrine (taken from a Seinfeld episode in which George Constanza temporarily improved his fortunes by doing the opposite of what his instincts told him) would seem to offer hope to thousands of losing traders. The trick would seem to be to buy when you feel that knot of fear in the pit of your stomach, or sell when you feel the joy and excitement of a trade going your way.

    George:

    "Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable. I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but I was perceptive. I always know when someone's uncomfortable at a party. It all became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I've ever made in my entire life has been wrong. My life is the complete opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have in every aspect of life, be it something to wear, something to eatů It's always wrong."

    Jerry:

    "If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right."
