Hot Trading Tips - Common Sense! -

What are they saying:
When everybody is running around saying how great a stock is, then everybody who can buy probably already has, and the only direction for the stock to go at that point is down. When it is obvious and exciting to everyone, it's too late.

Class in session:
It does not pay to argue with the market. Experience teaches that fighting the market can be a very expensive lesson.

Market index:
Buy when market indexes are in an uptrend. This reduces your risk on the long side and improves the longevity of bullish moves in the stocks that you own.

Know the rules...It just makes COMMON SENSE!
When shorting, keep in mind that if a stock pays a dividend while you are holding a short position, you must pay back that dividend. Most investors are unaware of this simple fact but it makes complete sense. You are borrowing the stock and any dividend payment should be owed to the "actual owner" of the stock. This rule can mean the difference between profit and loss.

When inflation is a concern, gold stocks tend to do very well. So, when inflation is on the move, look to the golds for golden profits.

How long should it be?
A cup and handle base should be at least six to eight weeks in length, starting with the first week closing down off the stock's top. What a great formation to trade!

Follow through day
When you get a follow-through day, signaling that the market is beginning a new uptrend, the vast majority of investors simply do not believe it's for real. They are scared to death and are so busy licking their wounds from all negatively of a downtrend they they are conditioned to doubt and be afraid of every rally. Many of the best bull runs start out this way.

Trend is your friend
The trend is your friend. Position your trades based on the market's overall direction. It just makes COMMON SENSE!

Faulty ditribution

If the market logs three to five ditribution days, and most of these days show an index price spread from the high to the low of the day that is very small, and the amount of the actual price decline from the prior day is also very small, even though there is a volume increase and the price closes down, the movement is not significant. These types of distribution days may not be enough to cause the market to turn down.

The average investor, stockbroker, or academic never takes the time to check or learn to read a chart properly or, due to disbelief or pure ignorance, does not understand how important it is to be able to spot volume accumulation or distribution in a chart pattern. This is like a doctor never taking blood tests or x-rays to see what is actually going on with a patient's health.

Plot out your mistakes on charts, study them, and write some additional rules in order to correct your mistakes andthe actions that cost you money.

Just like a good boy scout…BE PREPARED. A day of reckoning is coming and if we are ready… major profits will follow.

Class dismissed...It just makes COMMON SENSE!

Have a profitable day,
