Stock Trading Strategies

Understanding the best stock trading strategies is the key to investing. You need to pick the right one for the type of market environment you are in. I wrote the best-selling book Strategic Stock Trading that goes through my Two Fold Formula for picking out stocks.

I spend hours a week looking through the stock market to find the best stocks to buy.

I also blog about the market and you can find my most recent posts about the strategies that are working the best in the market right now if you scroll down a little. I am now going on my third decade of investing and trading in the financial markets and have been there and done that so to speak. I even ran a hedge fund for three years.

Here are some of the most common questions I am asked:

Frequented Asked Questions:

How Do I Buy Stocks Using a Broker?

How Many Stocks Should I Own?

How Can I Control My Risk Using Stop Loss Orders?

Can A Stock Picking Service Really Work For Me?

Should I Buy Penny Stocks on the OTC Bulletin Board?
