How to buy at right buy point

Posted on 8/05/2009




  • No matter how good a stock is , buying right can save you lot of trouble.
  • Always buy a stock which is not overextended on a monthly time frame or 10 days time frame.
  • If you buy a overextended stock, no matter how good the fundamentals are or the story is, 9 out of 10 times you will get grief.
  • While momentum is good for a stock you must understand momentum dynamics.
  • 6 month to 1 year momentum is good for a stock but 1 month momentum is negative.
  • Stocks with high one month momentum mean revert.
  • Or in simple language stock which is up a lot in last one month is due for a correction.
  • So if you buy a overextended stock you are buying near a reversion zone
  • See my series on "The 100 year old art of swing trading" .
  • The essential principle behind capturing 20 or 50 or 100% move is to buy a stock after it breaks out after having a normal reaction (neglect of 1 month or more) in its price trend.
  • Such zones are often called swing traders action zone.
  • Buying a breakout out of such zones gets you in to a possible start of a new leg of uptrend.
  • It allows you to put logical stop.
  • This is the most fundamental rule of profitable speculation.

Thanks for the excellent site, however the image is not visible, probably because of the old version of image software no longer working.
