Using Twitter for Biotech Trading

When I first hear about Twitter a while back, I have to admit, I thought it was worthless.  Really, who cares enough to track celebrities every move?  And who is so self absorbed that they will take the time to tweet where they are eating or what they are doing?

 

However, I have found a great and worthwhile use for Twitter:  Stock trading.  Where else can you get free, up to the second updates from multiple respected members of the trading community, all in one place? It is a very valuable tool to add to your trading toolbox.

If you do not already have one I recommend going to Twitter and signing up for an account.  Here are a list of users that I highly recommend following:

BioRunUp  obviously :)
mikehavrilla
StocksMD

Mahmissa
crusadernz
johnwelshphd
adamfeuerstein
tradeticket
stockgod
BiotechStockRsr
Superrfly

You can also download free Twitter applications that will auomatically update your smartphone with the tweets of those you follow.   I use UberTwitter for  my BlackBerry, and I would recommend it.

See my website at www.BioRunUp.com for more trading information and daily updates to the free, no registration, FDA calendar.  Make sure to sign up for the spam-free email updates through Google's FeedBurner. Enjoy.
