Our Short Term Trading Strategy looks for stocks breaking out of
a favorable chart pattern such as the, "Cup and Handle", "Double
Bottom" or "Flat Base". Our goal is to make at least one
point in every trade. Every trade is exited two days after the initial
entry unless one point is made or we are stopped out of the trade for a loss of
An example of a recent stock pick which provided an favorable short
term trade was NTES. NTES formed a Cup and Handle pattern and then broke
out of its Handle (H) in mid September.
On a short term basis we are looking to only hold the position
for a day or two and then take our profits. A daily chart of NTES is
shown below as NTES broke above its Handle on 9/12/05 with the entry price of
81.50. In this example NTES followed through an profits were taken on
9/13/05 at 85.50 for a net gain of 4 points.
