Trend Trading is Like Storm Chasing



August 20, 2013 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: TSLA , AAPL , SCTY.DL

You need to find the right catalysts in the atmosphere.

You see news is like a cold front. It can trigger activity if other conditions are favorable.

You see storms are like volume. They can move (price) rapidly.

You go to where you can observe/spot the trend/enter a trade.

You record the event,  follow over time closely/monitor the trade.

You recognize when the storm/trade has weakened/strengthened.

You get out of the way if it puts you in danger/start to lose money.

You review/learn from your predictions and your observations and your actions/trade log. 

You look for a new catalyst, a new piece of news, a new trade.

Great analogy!

The weather changes too rapidly for me. About the only trends I can outride are "horse & buggy" businesses with obsolete products or services. Market timing is not my strength so I'm a buy and hold investor.
