    i position trade using interday, daily, weekly realtime charts...no system...

    i take it the 'systems' generate buy and sell signals:confused: ?

    Yes, most systems give you detailed signals: entries and exits; in addition, most give you stop loss, some even profit targets.

    Yet, there are other systems that only help you to enter - and it's your job to exit gracefully.

    And, speaking of systems - does anyone here know of a good service to swing- or position-trade index stocks like QQQs, DIAs, SPYs? Any experiences? Other information sources?

  4. Without trying to be flippant, the best service is an experienced money manager with a track record of making money.

    I don't know of a tip service with a verifiable and consistent record of profits
