Oftentimes when I have picked up a few shares in afterhours, I have lived to regret it the very next day. However, I do see an afterhours trade here. Today, everyone is so skiddish and fearful that securities tend to sell off very quickly in afterhours. There is a very predictable bottom in the afterhours chart, however, that I have seen many times before. The bottom is very noticable and good for a quick afterhours trade. Lets take an example following the AMD chart. Notice how AMD went down to near 21 dollars and stayed there for about 5 minutes. If you had gotten in at 21.03, you could have sold it at 21.23, for a quick 1%. If I were to attempt this strategy, I would indeed feel nervous to hold it into the regular trading hours not knowing what would happen next. I think the best way might be to find a bottom during regular trading hours versus fishing in afterhours. Tell me your opinion. Should I leave my "DO NOT TRADE IN AFTERHOURS" sign up?
