  1. Still on paper..within a month I plan to sell most my AAPl and Chap. Until then' ive been adding to my portfolio. One day I'll sell, but just not now.

    This is a great bull market. the 2000 selloff is behind us. The dotcom bubble is behind up. It a new era.

    The markets are making up for lost ground. now may be the best time to be long. And I reiterate; the best way to make money is just go long. No need over complicate by overtrading.

    Best luck guys.

  2. you still think program trades i.e BASKETS trade off fundies? if you do, please tell me when you trade, I will take the other side 200% of the time!

  3. Look at the chart of the S&P...there have always been fundies and program traders.

    When S&P companies beat the numbers..fundies buy..the S&p goes up..the market goes up. Isn't it obvious?

    The market goes up when there is more buying than selling. That is the only way for anything in the market to go up. A company could have the best fundamentals and have $1 million EPS every quarter and a multiple of .001 but if no one buys their stock then it isn't going anywhere.

    This stuff is so cliched and simplistic it will be the death of you one day....

    what's next re-quoting Peter Lynch's "Buy what you know" as if it's that simple. The fact that you have convinced yourself already that a one sided mindset toward the markets is "simple" proves you won't last too long.

    wow. Program trading is "trades executed by software." I think the word of the day here is "simplistic" and that just sums up this entire post.

    Exact definition or not....if you actually read that wikipedia definition you wouldn't come to the conclusion that program trading is driven by fundamentals.
