It always takes longer than you think for a reaction to occur.
note from TheBramble: in my experience, it either takes so much longer than you expect that you forget to keep checking - and miss it, or it occurs so much more quickly, you're still working out 61.8% when your stop gets hit...
Yes Paul. If I had just listed them in one post, many who have yet to master the skills of focus and concentration would have simply skimmed them and not derived benefit from as many as they may otherwise now do.
Insider buying has different meanings on both sides of the pond.
Over here it means buying/selling on undisclosed information, usually privileged and is illegal though as common as parking on yellow lines. Penalties similar.
Over on the other side of the pond it simply means directors, senior staff trading company shares and is obviously not illegal.
As to your question, it depends. Sometimes directors are appointed on the understanding they commit to the company by buying stock. Insignificant normally.
If however several board members are frequently building their holdings (or that horrible word "growing") then that might be more significant for position traders or investors.
There are all sorts of other factors to consider such as whether sales are merely to raise money for tax or departed wives and so on.
Actually the "tip" has the sound of the pre-2000 tech. boom.
Richard, my apologies if it read as if I was suggesting insider trading was ‘your thing’ (though I’d personally consider it a badge of honour and a genuine accomplishment if I could add it to my arsenal of trading), - I was in fact referring to the tech sector which I know you tend (or tended?) to have a fair selection of ‘under review’ at any given time.
