It’s always good to have a variety of journeys and experiences as it brings a true all around view of the markets. Thanks to our guest this episode, Dan, we certainly hear about a strategy that is unique. While we’ve had past members discuss such strategies, it is view and far between. I do not personally use Dan’s approach or anything of that nature, but that doesn’t mean Dan is wrong. It doesn’t mean I am right. It just means that there are many pathways up the profit mountain within the world of the financial markets. As long as it works and there is a sense of personal risk comfort, that’s the key. With that being said, let’s get out the blender and blend together some fundamental and technical analysis into one.
Today we interview community member Dan. He utilizes a more fundamental approaches to trading. One way to define his style would be contrarian value investing.
After doing research on a company and monitoring it for at least a month, only then will Dan look to purchase a stock. His general timeframe for a trade is up to 2 years.
Dan uses the volatility of a stock to help determine potential targets. Since he is buying things that are possibly 50% off their highs, it’s not out of the question to target 40-60% returns on them.
He has always taken the Option Trading Simplified course to help expand his trading. He mainly goes long stock but he has no problem utilizing options to synthetically short if his thesis agrees that a move down is probable.
Dan enjoys utilizing the advice of veteran traders because he believes they have more intuition about overall market direction since they have been involved for so many years.
I think the first chapter for wealth creation should start with ‘how to save.’
Let’s say you want to buy 1000 shares. Start with 100. Watch for another month then buy another 100.
I bought Robotic Trading years ago and go through that 3 or 4 times a year to stay fresh with technical analysis.
I have 11 tickers I’m trading. Six of them are down so I’m a loser … but I’m up $818 dollars. You have to be a good loser.
