Why should I trade frequently?

There are many ways to trade securities. Most of our stock picks are based on momentum methods and therefore are short term in nature. Trading momentum stocks can be an advantage since short-term returns can be much more significant than trading on value or fundamentals-based systems. Here are some typical rates of return:

Here is what happens to $5000 if traded frequently:

 Monthly profit (%)

 1 year

 5 years

 10 years
 2.0  $6,340  $16,405  $53,825
 5.0  $8,975  $93,395  $1,744,555
 10.0  $15,690  $1,522,400  $463,545,000

In producing the table above we have assumed that all profits are re-invested. We have also neglected commission fees; such fees will affect your returns initially but as your capital grows, it's influence will diminish exponentially. Starting at least with $5,000 is recommended. We normally trade in blocks of $5,000-$10,000 in order to reduce the overall impact of commission fees on our trades. The returns can be quite rewarding: looking at the table above, at 5% monthly profit, a $5,000 block could become almost $94,000 in 5 years! We'll let you do the arithmetic and find out for yourself the implications of higher returns for longer periods of trading.

We are not looking for the next Microsoft or Amazon.com here; all we are interested in is generating profits in the range of 2%-5% every month. An examination of our track record page will demonstrate that this objective is not that difficult to achieve.
