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.

US Stock of the Day for August 2, 2011

Politics continues to mess with the markets... thanks gang for looking out for the public again!

Perhaps the best advice I've heard is to fire the politicians and hire a proven executive to reshape the economy.

Here's where the portfolio stands...

August 1st, I chose MCP @ $66.07 with a stop loss @ $65.41.  It triggered for a 1% loss.

For August 2nd, I'm choosing EGO @ $17.75 with a stop loss of $17.57.


The Overall total return is 63.2% since my first purchase approximately 7 weeks ago.

So far... 8 winners... 2 even... and 8 losers (at -1% each, and one at 0.3%) for a great overall profit.

I would encourage you, especially if you're looking for a more stable, weekly approach to trading, to look at  

See you tomorrow!
