I’m a swing trader of momentum stocks with a holding period of anywhere from a few hours to a few months. I run a number of screens to locate the strongest/weakest stocks out there, using technical analysis to determine my entries and exits. Trying to calculate the intrinsic value of stocks in my opinion is out of date and there is wisdom in crowds.I've developed a market timing system that determines when it's best to be long, short or on the sidelines, using a number of proprietary indicators based on many time frames. I believe that to have longevity in this field one must find ways to calm the mind and trade from a detached point of view. Emotionless trading will allow you to respond to what's going on right now in the markets, rather than reacting to daily fluctuations.View my personal blog http://zentrader.ca/

3 questions to ask before subscribing to a stock market newsletter:
1. Does your newsletter produce profits for its subscribers?
YES!!! Since our inception in August, 2008, if you started with a portfolio of $100,000 and traded in tandem with us, your $100,000 would be worth $182,996.90 or an 83% return. During the same time period, the S&P yielded a return of JUST 7%.
Or if you started with a portfolio of $25,000 and put no more than 5% of your portfolio ($1,250) in each position we've featured since our inception, that portfolio would be worth $45,078.80 today -- that's an 80% return!
But the best part is these gains came from never being more than 50% invested.
2. Does your newsletter own its results vs. simply 'featuring' stocks?
YES!!! Each newsletter outlines what's happening in the market from a technical analysis perspective and contains a watch list of stocks that have formed technical patterns that have historically delivered strong short-term results.
When a stock on our watch list triggers a trade, we issue a Trade Trigger email alert. When we are ready to lock in our gains, we issue a Locking In Gains email alert. So we literally make it easy for you to simply trade in tandem with market professionals.
3. How do you choose which stocks to cover?
A stock can only do 3 things -- go up, go down or do nothing. For us, a company is only as good as its stock and its chart. It's all about chart pattern recognition and trading in tandem with the indexes.
