Here is a weird one I have been thinking about for a while and applied today with good effect.
After the HUGE rise in the US overnight, I set some buy orders in some fundamentally safe stocks (at least I think so), at around 2% above yesterdays close.
I only got filled in half the orders, but then watched the market for a little peak in each stock price. I sold all 3 stocks for above cost price and ended up with a $500 return for today. Not an overly large amount of risk with a market set to JUMP and not an opportunity that will present itself too often (though more often in this current environment with its extreme volatility).
Thought I would try something completely different, worked at least for today.
Any thoughts or anyone tried something similar before?
Weird thread, but hey, out of the box!
