US Stock of the Day - Understanding How it Works

US Stock of the Day is for traders who are looking for a US Stock to trade each day. I base my picks on US Stocks I follow on the Nasdaq, Dow, S&P and other indices such as the Russell 1000, etc., watching for a swing in the momentum upward. I keep a tight stop loss on all trades to minimize my risk... and allow the great stock trades to continue rising. These are not recommendations... merely entertainment. Please see the warning at the bottom of this page.

Free Stock Tracker available @ Invest in the Markets

November has been brutal... and the year is turning down. Yet, since June 2011, less than 6 months ago, I began this site... choosing a stock a day (almost) and am up over 75%. How? Well, it is based on many of the principles you'll learn @ Invest in the Markets.

Well, let's see how we stand...

December 14th, I'm choosing SH @ $42.15. I hold it for what I'll call even for now. Stop loss @ $41.47.

I'll be suspending all trading until Jan. 1st... join me at Invest in the Markets for current information.


The Overall total return is 76.2% since my first purchase in June.

So far... 25 winners... 7 even... and 22 losers (at approx. -1% each) for a great overall profit.

I'd encourage you to visit Invest in the Markets for great educational articles, stock analysis, and trading strategies. It's a great site no matter how new or experienced you are as a trader.

See you tomorrow!
