Are You Ready To Take Adventage Of The Markets

Typically the months of August and September are the two least to make gains. As people are going on their last minute vacation before the summer is over, the stock markets seem to take a break. The volume is lower than any other time of the year.

As you can see by the last couple of weeks, the markets have seen a stall in gains compared to the other four months. The overall markets are holding to their levels, but quite few good stocks have come down from where they were just a little while ago. I don’t expect them to stay there very long. At the present time, the markets are showing that they are at a good resistance level. I also see that it’s more of a bull than a bear scenario going on.

The correction in the markets seem to be happening on the individual stock levels, so I’m getting ready to go all-in. I see some of the companies that I’ve been recently coming down to levels I consider a good entry point. If the stocks do fall back after I start building a position, that won’t be a problem since I always buy in increments.

So my question to you is… Are you ready to get in (if you’re sitting on the sidelines), or build a bigger position in the companies that you own already? Do your research on those companies now, so when the time is right to get in, you will know which ones will be a great investment. If you are up more than 20% in a stock already, you might want to take profit now and get back in after the pull-back.

Trading Solutions That Can Help

The three indicies lost just over 1% each on Tuesday. The DOW slipped 96.50 points to close at 9241.45, the S&P 500 shed 12.75 dropping below 1000, and the NASDAQ finished the day at 1969.73 after losing 22.51 points. There were some great gains in some stocks even with the down day.
The financial sector was the worst of the bunch today. I’m glad that I’ve pulled out of that sector a couple of days ago. I’ll wait for a healthy pull-back and jump in again.
When I sit on the sidelines waiting to jump back in, I sometimes use the time to try some investing programs I’ve come across.
One that I recently checked out is the free analysis trading software package from Trading Solutions. It can learn patterns from historical data and allows you to create trading systems that suggest when to buy and sell. The software works with stocks, futures, currencies (FOREX) and many other financial instruments.
Download Trading Solutions and try it for free. Let me know what you think. As I continue playing around with it, I’ll report back on how I like it.
