"find the company that has sold off the most, and buy it."

Excellent, just the people I need when I'm shorting.

Yes, I know that is not technically strictly correct, but a little prose licence. please.
Welcome back Richard. How was Skegness?

Don’t take sample opinions on a trade. You’ve done your research — live or die by it.








note from TheBramble: this could well kill off a lot of the traffic on this site if everyone went for it so I will be half expecting an early AM visit from Sharky's Spetsnaz.

Thank you, Tony.
Thought I recognised you through the grille in the back of the police van. Skegness was too upmarket for me.

It is possible to make money going long a horrific company. I’ve successfully played dead cat bounces on Enron, Nortel, and Lucent.









note from TheBramble: I haven't. I'm quoting JCA don't forget. I own up to making money on Nortel and Lucent, but not on the upside.

Never catch a falling knife.









Note from TheBramble: Yeah, often pithily quoted, but very few realise they they're doing it - until they've done it. An advance of experience brings you to realise that you are doing it. Until finally, you recognise that you have done it, and know what to do/not to do to not do it again.

Use stock screens.







Note from TheBramble: Screen as in filter. Why this is particularly important is that a lot of newbie traders will try and take on too much, hoping that quantity will yield more profits than quality. There are numerous ways to screen off stocks, FX and all other instruments. They change over time. One of the skills of the consistently successful trader is in recognising what criteria to use to evaluate their instrument classes and to recognise that these criteria also change over time.

Reducing noise/traffic/information flow to only that which is essential is, erm, essential.

[Which is why you (and I) should be spending less time on sites like this rather than more when we’re actively trading]

BBQ-ing them on a grille would result in a lot of flesh sticking to the wire.
On the other hand a grill should work quite well, though that's not an experience I've had the dubious pleasure of partaking in, especially with their accompanying sauce.

Draw trend lines. If a stock is in a downtrend, don’t go long, and vice versa.







note from TheBramble: O, how we all laughed at that one.

Come on Richard, how about you allowing me a little 'prose licence' too?
