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 October 20, 2011

Europe continues to wag the world's financial markets

Let's take a look at where we stand still...

October 11th, I chose AAPL @ $392.00.  It triggered the stop loss @ $395.00.  I'll look to reenter this in the near future once the pessimism rubs off.

October 19th, I'm choosing GMCR @ $83.34 after being severely beaten up. It got more beaten up and I sold it immediately at a 8% loss... devastating in some ways!


The Overall total return is 63.4% since my first purchase in June.

So far... 16 winners... 5 even... and 19 losers (at approx. -1% each, and one at 0.3%) 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!
