I have been following Timothy Sykes for a couple years, he is a great trader but I haven't been able to make any money with his trades because I am just not fast enough and I just don't have the ability to trade in and out buying the low and selling the high. I need trades that give me more than 2 seconds to enter, because my timing just plain sucks. anyway I have noticed that over weeks or months most of the paid promotional stocks that are up over $1.00 do tend to go down. So I have started looking for stocks that are up over $1.00 because of a paid physical mailer, then I short a small position and just wait a couple weeks (or months). if I am up I get out, if it goes against me then my plan is to short some more. Just wondering if anyone else was doing anything similar to this? I shorted AMEL at 1.01 back in June and now it's at .69 so that one is working out for me. I also shorted ESPH at 1.20 but I had way too many shares for my account and it went to 1.70 and I got out at 1.65 but then I reshorted around 1.35 on the way back down and got out at .90 so I broke even on that one. now it's trading for .82 so obviously I should have sold more at the top and covered now. I have tried to research companies and figure out which ones are going up, half the time the stock of great companies drops in price. This way I am looking for companies that are worthless but selling for a very high price, and it seems they are much more predictable in the way they drop.
