Finding the right stock trading strategy that works is always an issue for investors. When do you buy stocks, how long do you hold onto them, and when do you sell them? All great questions. Well, these questions can be answered by every investor if they simply have a sure-fire method that tells them when to buy and sell stocks.
I know from personal experience that it's not easy to choose the right criteria formula to trade stocks. I worked on it for ten years without getting it right. Though looking back, I'm actually surprised I didn't do worse overall during those years.
But as I played, I learned a lot of different chart studies, strategies, and techniques that greatly improved my overall ability to buy and sell at the correct times and increased my trading profit by leaps and bounds.
I'm not at one hundred percent wins on my trades (yet), but I have found a few strategies that are working quite well at predicting price movement, telling me when it's safe to buy, and when I should get out of a trade.
A couple friends of mine attended a seminar about trading options and learned some things with charts that caught my interest. I had never looked too closely at the charts before; I only looked to see what the price of the stock was doing, not utilizing any of the studies that are available for the charts. Once I started playing around with charts and charting tools on some great stock charting software, I finally found figured out a strategy that works.
My trading secrets come from multiple sources, most of which are from successful investors using certain criteria to make decisions. Most of the criteria was for options trading (which I hadn't quite gotten a grasp on yet), so I had to do a lot of research, trial, and error to determine the exact combination of signals to best call a trade.
The thing is, once you learn all of the signals, they are easy to plug into your charting system and easy to read. You just have to know which signals to use, how to set up the indicators, and to know what the buy and sell signals are.
I'm going for 100% success, so my criteria is very strict. Since options trading is a lot faster turnaround, I had to adjust a lot of numbers to be more appropriate for buy/hold stock investing.
My approach is currently working at 70% right now, so I'm not going to complain about that, but I'm always tweaking here and there to determine this perfect combination of indicators and signals.
The key to a successful stock trading strategy is learning from mistakes, tweaking the blueprint, and implementing the changes.

Not every stock trading strategy has to deal with buying and selling stocks at the right time. Management of your portfolio is just as important, if not more, than how right you are all of the time.
