Dear Fetchers,
I am totally new to this site (thanks to GLGene for telling me about it). However, I have a major problem with trading the market. That is, I never know when to get in. I read that one must trade WITH the market. But when the market goes up, I always think it is near its top. When it goes down, I assume it will go down more.

The question: Do you folks worry about the overall market or do you just trade what you screen on StockFetcher?

Thank you, Carolyn

Are you trading the market or a stock?
Each and every stock in the market has different people playing the "other side" or your trade. I would select your picks, follow your rules and generally watch the market for a general mood. When people are buying your picks (long) will usually go up much faster and the same holds true when people are selling. I use the general direction and attitude of the market to help me in determining whether to be aggressive or hold back some.

If you understand support and resistance then check out my BATTLELINES filter post.

This further divides the area between the lines into a "gridiron" aka football field and allows you to know who has the ball.
