Developing Systems for Trading Stocks

August, 2008

Here is a link to a presentation I gave in some years ago at the local Fasttrack Users Group.  It contains a lot of information about trading stocks, but there is certainly no one way to do it.  I prefer mechanical systems, but CANSLIM, if you have the time, can be very profitable.

I should add that this concentrates on domestic stocks, or at least those that trade on the U. S. exchanges.  There are often opportunities in the foreign markets, and these are best played with closed-end funds or index ETFs.  In addition, for hedging purposes, and for a quick move in the case of a terrorist attack, there is a good case to be made for having a portion of your portfolio in leveraged index funds, or perhaps in cash.
