TRO,
Thanks for popping this one back to the top -- a good read. I've often thought that a skillful trader could choose a stock at random, and through a combination of timing, positioning, direction, and $ mgmt.; he (or she for our sisters out there) can turn a profit. Obviously a quality stock makes it easier to accomplish, but the real trick is strategy -- not stock picking.

Cheers,
/MT

Hi all,

ETFC RSI(2) is below 1. When do you think that it's time to buy ?

Thanks

Today's pullback rally is a bull trap IMHO. Here I'm speaking of the major averages. Of course, there will be stocks that will buck the trend (I'm holding two longs for myself). If you have distaste for shorting stocks, I would stay on the sideline until the dust settles.

Luck?

If you define luck as when preparation meets opportunity and one takes action.

TheRumpledOne: I always enjoy reading your posts as I am fairly new to trading and I'm trying to learn the tricks of the trade, no pun intended. I find your advice to be very helpful and enlightening as from a seasoned teacher or a mentor.
There was a statement posted in this thread on page 3 from marine2 that resonated with me. He said: "To find a particular filter and to learn how to use that filter correctly for that inquiring individual seeking success and satisfaction in the stock trading world is an important objective." Exactly, Its one thing to find a particular scan that produces a nice list of stocks, but its another thing to understand what the scan is telling you and how to interpret it.

The RSI(2) method works PERIOD.

Doesn't matter bull, bear, sideways... it works.

RSI(2) < 1 gives you the heads up that a stock is bottoming but it is up to you to trade it.

1. Would you be willing to share that scan filter that your talking about in this thread? And explain how it works and what to look for, so traders like myself can scan for stocks and understand why a stock is a good candidate for a trade, rather than just guessing at which stock is right.
Thanks

This is an utter nonsense. PERIOD.

It might work in a bull market, but you will lose ure shirt and some more should you use it in a bear market. Believe me, the bears will call ure bluff and reveal such B.S. in plain daylight for everyone to see. And don't hell tell me it's not WHAT you trade but HOW you trade...because this is exactly how you're NOT suppose to trade!
