Fast Moving Stocks

At any given time there are handful of stocks which make a fast and furious move in a compressed time frame.You can look at the move in a day, week,month, quarter, six month, and a year. Now if you know 20 stocks were up more than 50% in month that is a very valuable information. Similarly if you know 96 stocks were up 200% or more in 260 days, it gives you a clear idea about the kind of potential possible in the market.

If you are a day trader potentially if you get in to the best moves in a day, the rewards can be astronomical. Similarly for a swing trader the advantage of finding such moves is low risk entry and best utilisation of the capital. Same concept applies to long term traders.

What triggers such moves. Can they be predicted in advance. Can you isolate some probable factors which lead to such moves. Is there a way to identify the move half way through the move. Can one identify low risk entry point in to such moves.

Most times in life the answer depends on the questions you ask. There are largely two types of people, one kind who looks at a information and strategy and accepts that as given fact or in other word looks out of a window of opportunity and say nice view and move on. But there are other kind of people in the world, when they encounter a window of opportunity, they jump out, explore the world behind that window and find more windows of opportunities. Innovators, leaders, successful people in life generally have a well developed ability to jump out of windows.

how do you set up your blog to make advertising $s from it?

Unless you are at the level of Tradermike in terms of number of visitors, it is very difficult to make money from blogging. He should be making anywhere between 5000 to 10000 per month from ads and sponsorships.

The key is to have very high readership. After that you have to optimise your site for advertising and get sponsorships or affiliate deals.

You will find lot of useful information on the link below about how to go about doing it.

I noted your Terra Industries on this list. I'm embarrassed to say that I owned TNH (Terra Industries owns a good bit of TNH's stock) at $21 in 02.06. It's thinly traded and I decided that I didn't have the cajones to hang onto it and let it go (THOUGH I was confident but clearly didn't have enough conviction) in my assessment that NG (huge cost) would drop and they would benefit. It now trades at 46. The confluence of declining NG and euphoria over crops have benefited these two stocks well. Plus, the dividend rate on TNH is pretty nice.

A little side bar color to this list.

From the momentun NG stumbled this sector has been straight up. I think the corn craze also has some role to play.
