Investors find it very easy to trade stocks when the market moves straight up, but investors also take it directly on the chin when the market falls. No one can be sure as to when the music will stop, but we all know that it will, and when it does and when the market turns from a state of euphoria to a state of capitulation again investors will wish they had turned to a proactive strategy that is capable of making money in both up and down markets.
One such strategy is the "Lock and Walk" Strategy offered by Stock Traders Daily. This strategy adopts a 'keep it simple' approach, and trades ProShares UltraShort QQQ (ETF) (NYSEARCA:QID) and ProShares Ultra QQQ (ETF) (NYSEARCA:QLD) in accordance with defined channels in the NASDAQ exclusively. This approach also requires investors to secure gains using a Fibonacci-based calculation, whenever those gains are achievable.
Therefore, even though the strategy never actually shorts stocks it does buy-short sometimes, and that means it can work in down markets too, but since January 2010 this strategy has outperformed the S&P by 36%. That means it works in up-markets as well, so if this bull keeps on going it can also perform, but if the bull stalls, if the tides turn, The Lock and Walk Strategy offered by Stock Traders Daily can make money too.
