This question is key. I too have wondered if Tim actually has a trading plan (hence the origin of this thread), or if he just shorts small cap MoMo stocks on "gut" feeling, which is how he appears to trade on WSW. He even describes his strategy on the show to potential investors as "short biased microcap cap companies that I THINK are only up because they are being peddled to unsophisticated investors." He says "they have no reason to be up so much so I short them because I don't THINK they can stay up". That strategy, mixed with a pinch of emotions is like a recipe for failure. And, as Tim's broken fan can attest to, he is a very emotional trader.
