    Today I want to do something a little different.  If you follow me on Twitter or read my thoughts here, then you know how I trade and view the world.  I’ll tend to stay away from actual trade ideas though, as people pay for my advice there.  I’ve had a lot of people recently ask me specifically about trading, more specifically which services I trade at Schaeffer’s.

    One that I’m most proud of is I manage a stock portfolio in the Schaeffer’s Daily Bulletin.  I’ll give a bullish or bearish pick nearly everyday, with simple targets and stops.  Well, this stock portfolio has beaten the SPX the past four years and is on pace to do it again this year.  In fact, as of the end of the third quarter the portfolio was up 49.79% versus the SPX up 17.91%.  Very few hedge funds can say that.

    If this sounds like something you’d like (and you trust me) then check out this service here.

    Lastly, here are all the trades this year.  Sure, we’ll have some losers, but overall we do our best to limit the losses and target swing trades looking for about a 15% return in a month or less.  I’m aware this is hard to read, you can click twice on the images below to get a bigger view.

      Really nice track record. I hope you stay at schaeffer’s, not move to hedge fund because I still need your excellent ideas. ;-)
