OPTIONS – research below. But cautious here as most people lose money. My trading foundation is based on William O’Neil’s book “How to Make Money in Stocks” which warns “Don’t trade options or penny stocks.”

My stock picks are doing SUPER WELL thanks to: 1) Donald Trump for the worst possible handling of the Coronavirus, and 2) Trump followers for doing exactly the wrong thing & acting like it’s a hoax. A tiger cannot change the color of its stripes – so the situation will get worse & my stocks will keep going higher.

Why Charts?https://youtu.be/8d08B2ORZxs

Chart Patternshttps://youtu.be/rtUPtQZbU-U

Computer trading programs (used by large fund managers) buy & sell based on chart patterns – so charts actually create self-fulfilling prophecy by their programmers. If the computers are programmed to buy when a stock’s price bounces off the 50 day moving average – then a declining stock will likely turn around & go back up when that event occurs.

Secular Growth Trends

– Jim Cramer says, “There’s always a bull market somewhere.” In other words, stocks of companies specializing in disruptive technologies typically go up as revenue/profits increase. Past examples are: personal computers (MSFT, AAPL), the internet (AMZN, GOOGL), mobile phones/computing (AAPL, GOOGL), and social media (FB). Recent & current examples are: artificial intelligence (NVDA), cloud (MSFT, AMZN), and as we speak .5g. (QCOM). Secular growth trends are independent of overall market trends (politics, economics, etc.) and are less affected as a result.
