Mid Term Investing:
Several factors in nature give us the chance to predict a future event, and markets are part of nature.
As well as the probability of a hurricane striking the coast can be estimated, the likelihood of more fortunate events may allow us to profit from upcoming news.
Mid term investors can jump into one position just days before a big announcement. The news will move the price of the stock enough to make a nice profit.
While the long term investor may buy that stock and hold it for years, a mid term investor may want to dump it in order to have enough cash available for the next headline.
Markets can unfairly punish good companies (and investors) that are supposed to do well according to its fundamentals, but not according to the current mood of Wall Street. You may do a diligent research and find yourself holding a red ink position for three or more years waiting for the markets to make sense. As not everybody is wired for long term investment, you may consider the advantages of a mid term approach.
There is something sweet about mid term investment: market crashes find you sitting in cash.
News Predictor is a mid term stock trading system. It takes one position, holds it for some weeks (typically) and closes when the news hits the press (or when the price reflects that it isn't news anymore).
A small portion of positions (about 3%) last just one or two days. The system has been conceived to be stress free and easy to maintain. You may want to pay attention to the whole portfolio, or you may prefer the excitement of single calls.
Every single position is protected with a stop order one trading day after creation, so to limit risk.
The portfolio holds 7 positions most of the time, up to a maximum of 10. The whole track of past orders is available on the website and can be easily consulted.
