    Author’s reply » Clearly I will not have to worry about you ever being a great stock trader. Does this sound like "hot air" below? If you actually knew anything about my methodology that I have used to make a living for the past 15 years on Maui maybe you would be more respectful.

     

    My methodology:

     

    February 2, 2010 - Los Angeles, CA – Investor’s Business Daily’s CAN SLIM® Investing
    System was the top-performing investing strategy from 1998 through 2009, according to an
    independent, real-time study by the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII).
    The study – which tracked over 50 leading investing methods through all the stock market’s
    ups and downs each month for the past 12 years, including the recent financial crisis – found
    the CAN SLIM system gained 2,763.3%, compared to a 14.9% gain for the S&P 500 over the
    same period; an average of 35.3% a year versus 3.3% a year for the S&P 500.

    Got short CRM today Josh, but not because I don't appreciate your investing style... I do... For me its a Valuation and Technicals decision and also a market risk decision as I am fully hegded with no cash so I need exposure to the darkside. I know you guys look at ADX average directional movement etc... so I am hoping my analysis of the +DMI divergence and break below the ADX line as slightly bearish. From a MACD RSI and STOCH basis I am very comfortable with my short tonight which is sizeable... We had a MACD cross AND a Stoch cross and a cross below the signal line which is totally bearish. Divergence on Macd histogram as the histo did not make higher highs in the latest rally. Also nudged off the upper Bollinger band but are firmly above the ten day EMI and SMI -- I guess I have to let the macd rsi and stochastics lead me to the promise land on this trade.... lemme know what you think... For a cheapie breakout stock what do you think about PSS or CENT? both are featured on the oldschoolvalue sight and have some good numbers. Good trading this week...
