If you don't like longer time frames you probably won't like this "system" Lets say I'm looking for stocks that have had solid uptrends for the past year or so. Examples: AMX http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/quickchart/quickchart.asp?symb=amx&sid=0&o_symb=amx&x=0&y=0 NVDA http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qu...=nvda&sid=0&o_symb=nvda&freq=1&time=8&x=0&y=0 ET (this one in particular is beautiful. Something to do with the name?) http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qu...symb=et&sid=0&o_symb=et&freq=1&time=8&x=0&y=0 Stops are are 10% as well as discretionary if the chart pattern starts looking bad. I'd expect the average holding time to be several months in order to shoot for greater than 10% gains. Do you think a simple buy and hold system like this would perform well? The charts just scream at me "bet on me continuing in this direction" I would think buying these trendy stocks for the long term could be quite profitable.
