How to Buy More Shares With Timing Buy Points

How to Buy More Shares With Timing Buy Points

As I wrote yesterday how I enter stock positions, today Lorillard once again shows the example of why I like to time the entry into a stock. It is not necessarily timing the market, just timing the entry point, or buy point. Once I decide to to buy more shares I watch the stock carefully Continue reading →

Find a Good Entry Point or How to Buy Stocks to Increase Profits

Find a Good Entry Point or How to Buy Stocks to Increase Profits

A few stocks I own or plan to buy an initial position such as GLW provided a great opportunity today as the whole market ended down. I wrote on Friday last week that I wanted to add Lorillard (LO) to my positions but the trade would execute only if the stock goes higher. Today it Continue reading →

Is Lorillard offerring another buy opportunity?

Is Lorillard offerring another buy opportunity?

I think Lorillard is offering another buy opportunity. On Friday session the stock dropped by 4% and hit 200 day MA. That is the kind of a retreat I usually look in stocks of my interest to add more shares. I am not buying yet, since the stock may continue sliding down, but I entered Continue reading →

Trade adjustment – TASER International Inc (TASR)

Trade adjustment - TASER International Inc (TASR)

Market correction

Market correction

The market finally truned into a correction. Hold your hats, we may be running low. My estimate is to pull back down to $145 – $146 level (SPY). Have you saved enough money to buy more stocks?

Today I added a few shares of GLD into my portfolio as Gold suffered a huge sell off. As I wrote in my previous post I believe the today’s price action is an overreaction of investors, most likely responding to (outdated) report from Sorros Fund Management. As I wrote I believe GLD indicated a bearish Continue reading →

Today’s trading was hectic and markets fell hard after FOMC meeting. The market is idicating nervousness and today’s price action – extended bearish candle may indicate the end of the trend.

Market expectations

Market expectations

Today’s trading is over and the markets added to their gains and added to their overbought pressure. Everybody is already talking about correction behind the door, but the market is still strong and marching up. Investors are still pouring new money, moving more cash to the stocks on every dip. It really is something which Continue reading →
