Something To Ponder......

I heard a very informed guy who does his own work say that 10K invested in the S&P in 1990 was worth 41K in 2006. Buy and hold. Not bad. But that same money invested with perfect market timing was worth 600K.

But invested in the right sector each quarter, was worth 6 million.

stewie- hope you are doing well. Feels good to have a market that we can count on for more than a day or two.

hi J. nice to hear from ya again. i noticed that you and i have been vague on wallstreak. i just needed some alone time. i have been working on something new that keeps me in the market at all times, but scales me in and out depending on mrkt conditions. increasing exposure on dips and trimming as we get over bot on the 60 min. RSIs. and only buying the strongest sectors. also, wanna incorporate options trading into my arsenal. i had a killer paper trade in CROX puts the other day. HANS puts we talked about 2 weeks ago would have worked like a charm as well. how does that sound bro?

Is buying the strongest sector what you meant by perfect market timing?

Stewie,

Right on Post. Now if only can determine and execute.

"perfect market timing": getting in near the lows and getting out market peaks. very difficult/'impossible' to do IMO. Just focus on owning the strongest stocks or GOOG call options right before earnings. hahaha! (I almost pulled the trigger on those suckers).
