Stock Market Video - Top 11 Trading Ideas for 2011

Hi, traders. Here's my top 11 long ideas for the new year. Not all are buy candidates yet - in fact, my signal is very close to turning to a "caution" signal - but they are worth keeping on your watchlists.

Just an FYI - in terms of timing and commentary, I am going to use a slightly different method this year.   Basically, it contains four signals and these are the ones you'll hear me talk about this year...

1) Buy signal - self-explanatory - look to buy stocks or ETFs (which is what I am going to try and mainly stick to this year because of my full-time job).

2)  Sell signal - look to short stocks or ETFs.  Going long inverse ETFs is possible as well in IRAs where shorting is not allowed.

3)  Lookout signal - if you are short, go to cash.   Wait for a buy signal and then look to go long.

4)  Caution signal - if you are long, go to cash.   Wait for a sell signal and then look to short.

I will also use technical levels in association with those signal days that can reverse the signals, sometimes immediately.   I will explain that as the year progresses.

Is the system I have perfect??  Heck no - there is no such thing as a perfect system.   No matter how much research you do and how much computing power you have, there is no "black box" for market timing.   I do believe, however, it will keep me in the market (for the most part) when it makes sense to be in, and keep me out (for the most part) when it makes sense to stay out.   I just have to have the discipline to follow the signals as they are given. 

Hope you find the video helpful and informative.   As always, feel free to email me with questions or comments - I enjoy hearing from my readers.
