Short Term Play
We no longer offer this service. We did one year trial from April 2012 - April 2013 and achieved a great success. Our Short Term Play is up +262.61% via S&P 500's +14.06% gain since April 5, 2012. The complete Trading Records and Week-by-Week Performance can be seen Here and Here .
Since May 2013, a revised version of our Short Term Play trading strategy, "4Pick5Percent System", has been used to run our $5K Portfolio. Compared with our Short Term Play trading strategy, the revised trading strategy is looking for opportunities to make less trades but with higher possible return from each trade. The following is the description of our original Short Term Play trading Strategy. The revised trading strategy is given in $5K Portfolio session.
- We will send our buy/sell signals for each and every trade.
- Stop loss will be set at -3%;
- If a trade gained more than 1% after our buy, we will set our trailing stop at break-even;
- If a trade gained more than 5% after our buy, we will set our trailing stop at 3% and be ready to sell when we see the momentum is gone;
- Hold every stock to no more than two days;
- Hold no more than two stocks at anytime;
- Close all positions Friday before market close. No holdings over weekend.
- Stocks we selected must be very actively traded. Trading volumes should be at least one million shares.
Based on this Strategy, we will not allow more than $300 loss if we spend $10,000 for each trade. Many times we may limit our loss at 1%. And we will be very happy if we can make few hundred dollars of profit for a trade. It all started from small.
This Portfolio is aimed at small investors, who have only few thousands of dollars to invest but want to accumulate enough money in the long run for their retirement. Since its inception in June 2009, the Portfolio has grown from $5,000.00 into over $25,000.00, a total return of over 400%. See the table below:
But we are not satisfied with our result. We want to do better. In the next 12 months, we want to implement our newly developed trading strategy called "4Pick5Percen System" for this Portfolio. The Strategy can be briefly described as follows:
- We will list our BUY candidates at least one day before our buys and all our actual buy/sell signals will be sent to our "Update Window';
- Stop loss will be set at -5%;
- We are looking for 5% - 10% return from each of our buys. May hold it longer if the momentum is still there;
- Hold every stock to no more than five business days in general, but can be extended to up to ten days;
- Hold no more than four stocks at anytime;
- Stocks we selected must be very actively traded. Trading volumes should be at least half million shares.
Our target is to achieve 10% monthly return after using our newly developed system and make 200% annual return for the next 12 months.
If you are a Buy-and-Hold type of investors, this Portfolio may be good for you. The longest holding period for the stocks in this Portfolio is one year and we want to achieve 40%-plus annualized return for this Portfolio. Since its inception in 2009-01-31, this Portfolio has given us over +190% return.
