Stock Trading Strategies
Understanding the best stock trading strategies is the key to investing. You need to pick the right one for the type of market environment you are in. I wrote the best-selling book Strategic Stock Trading that goes through my Two Fold Formula for picking out stocks.

Ike also creates a composite indicator out of six components to gauge the strength of the market. By using this indicator he has been able to accurately call market moves as he did in two other interviews I did with him.
