Once in a while we get a setup that is just to sweet to pass up. It’s got the word ‘sweet’ tattooed all over its ass.

Lunchtime Learning: Berk’s Trend-Trading

Some of you, and myself as well, think it was quite apropos for my to leave when I did, and return as I have.  I am a trend trader at heart, and the 9 months of rally that I missed were merely the time I was to be playing ping-pong and waiting for the next trend to show it’s love.  Since I can combine EWT with trend-trading, I am looking to catch individual equities that have been underperforming some where in wave 1, and ride them down all the wave until their motive move has reversed.  Stronger stocks, I will usually catch right at wave 3 is busting out…

“But – oh evil overlord – iconic (and handsome) leader of all lowly rat minions – what is that coveted diagonal you speak of?”

Well, there you have it. Isn’t it a beauty? I’m actually tempted to load up on [...]
