Hi, this is Adam Hewison and I have just returned from vacation in Maine. This is my first day at the office and my first video from the digital den. While I was away, I got to thinking about one of the oldest myths about trading: the buy and hold myth. While this strategy has worked in certain markets at certain times, I do not believe we are in a time frame where this strategy is going to meet with a lot of success. The world around us is changing rapidly and therefore it is important to have strategies that can change with this new regime. In today's video I'm going to show how the buy and hold strategy is ...
was developed by MumboJumbo and released by Take Two in 2001; it received generally good reviews, though many cited a number of bugs in the initial release. The Myth games are categorized as real time tactics , representing a departure from established real time strategy titles such as Warcraft and Command & Conquer ; resource retrieval and unit construction were entirely removed to focus on squad- and soldier-level tactics.

What The Russell Means For Sirius XM Investors - SATWAVES
I spent the better part of the weekend thinking about Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) and the upcoming Russell Reconstitution, after being asked repeatedly how I would play it. I had previously suggested a strategy for traders to place Good Till Canceled plus extended hours limit orders at high price targets now, to take advantage of the trading opportunity later.

One person had suggested using market on close orders. I don’t think that”s the best strategy. Traders looking ... market research, surveys and trends

The Stock Market is for suckers…. « blog maverick
Tom I stand by what I said. You can have as long a term horizon as you want, but like most other long term plans we have, most peoples lives dont match up to their “horizons”. Its amazing how life intervenes. Kids, whatever. its a fortunate few that can just shell it away and never touch it. Your “horizon” hits a dead end when you have to put money into a checking account. I have never seen any investing research that deals with random withdrawls that represents real world. And boy oh boy, if life hits you hard when the market is down, you make a withdrawl and you wont ever catch up. But thats just the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Since the advent of the Internet, never before has the stock market been so accessible to the common man or woman who has the wherewithal to trade. Lately, there isn�t a single news or financial channel in the media that you won�t be inundated with online broker ads.
