If you have been following my current picks page you might have noticed that most of the symbols received buy signals on 7-13-2009 which is when the March rally was coming to a correction but then bounced. Will we have another case of this with 8-20-2009?
I was hoping we wouldn’t that is why I posted those charts yesterday thinking  we had topped. Well my automated strategy was saying otherwise and I completely Ignored it.

Normally I would just update the current picks page but this time around I have decided to make a blog post.

Sell Tech?

Market Analysis / Comments Off on Sell Tech?

If you check the Current Picks Tab you will see I have updated it again.

After running my strategy… $COMPX , $QQQQ, $IWM, $IYR, $QLD, $URE are all on the SELL list.

I am wondering if the tech sector (COMPX, QQQQ, QLD) is the first one to lead the next correction or if it is just lagging the seemingly never-ending rally of the current market.

Stay tuned and keep checking my twitter for more info. (either on the right column under “Latest Updates” or at http://www.twitter.com/investingfreak )

First Forward Testing of the system a Success [MOV]

Posted by Investing Freak on May 07, 2009
General / Comments Off on First Forward Testing of the system a Success [MOV]

Forward testing is when you use a strategy and instead of back-testing it with previous data you actually test it going forward and preferably with real money.
For my new system MOV became that victim stock to be tested.

I first got a buy signal on  April 17 2009 (Bought on the 20th at market open), i got in at 7.67.
I got a sell signal on May 5th 2009  and I sold at  8.81 with a market order.

I got about 14% profit on a 19 day long trade.
I don’t have a chart to post with this one but just wanted to say this first forward testing trade worked well.

Here’s to more good trades.

Stock tips from the Freak strategy

Posted by Investing Freak on April 28, 2009
General / 1 Comment

After SKF’s latest blunder in which I called the sell-off then couldn’t resist the LOW LOW price of $155, I set off to design a strategy that overtime would bring consistent growth.  I am using a 4hour interval for the strategy so it really isn’t day-trading but also it’s not long term investment (like those exist much anymore).

The idea is to give stock tips when the strategy throws me a Buy signal then to call the selling point when the strategy yells SELL.

Now If i use the S&P 500 or the Russel or any other index (all the stocks within it), I will get a lot of buy and sell signals that will drive me crazy.
I’m wondering if any of you have ideas on which stocks to put on watch list.  I will also need to create a section on this page to show the buy and sell signals with their dates as well as how much gain/loss occurred.

I think i might be going a bit over my head as many people do this for a fee (Timothy Sykes anyone?)  but I will  think this through for the next week or two and then decide what to do.    Your comments are really needed this time especially for ideas on which stocks to put on the alert list.

Till next Time,
-K (The busy man)
