About the Premier Investor Newsletter


That's what we, as investors, have been taught over the years about stock market returns - that on average the market rises 10% a year. Historically that may be true but that's over a very long time frame, say 40 or 50 years, but what about today?

The last ten years has seen some extremely powerful bull and bear markets. If you are a buy-and-hold investor who bought stocks in the last five years, odds are you've lost money. Yet active traders who learn to take advantage of the trends, who recognize key buy and sell signals, can out perform the market.

Short-term moves in equities are normally fueled by investor emotions. Fear and greed are what moves stocks on a daily basis against the background of a company's fundamentals and the economic environment. Technical analysis suggests that all knowledge about the company's business, both public and private, is already known and reflected in the stock price.

Technicians can recognize key buy and sell points in the market and individual stocks. When applied with an overall knowledge of the market environment, the economic seasons, and investor sentiment then you can truly start the decision making process on when to make a trade.

What if, instead of buying and holding, you were to trade the short- term and intermediate-term trends in stocks and the market? Could you make more than 10% a year? We believe the answer is a resounding "yes" you can. Experienced traders can do a lot better.

It's up to you to decide if this particular set up matches your trading style and risk. If not, then just wait for the next Premier Investor candidate.
