How do you diversify your positions? When I look at potential stocks that are suitable for trading, they are almost always in the high-tech sector, which in turn seems to give them all the same chart patterns--same break out days, same pull back days. (I looked at ten of my stocks last month and all of them gave me the same buy signal on the same dayâlikewise with the sell signal! Ten or so others gave me signals that were one day later or earlier, but all in the same direction.) If that is the way it is, then what is the purpose of having multiple positions? This situation seems to make the opportunity cost of searching through a basket of stocks while trading and keeping up with various positions worthless. I buy stock A and if the trade works, I sell. I see that in the mean time, stock B gave the same signal. I, then, search for another stock and find stock C, it goes the way I want it to, but I see that both stock A and B did the same thing. Should I look in different sectors? All these others seem to be too low in volatility for good trading. If you hold more than one position at the same time, what is the largest number of positions do you hold?
