Its quite simple and requires very little time at all.
There is no need to spend hours drooling over charts, using all kinds of T/A, and F/A to justify why you bought what you bought.
It is as simple as a buy and hold approach, with no attention needed.
Here is the story, a true story at that of how it could have been achieved.
I bought FMG back in Aug 2004 for 64 cents, the trade took me about 10 minutes to complete, after reading the announcement etc. Of course I sold out 2 weeks later after it had hit my stop-loss (10%. But thats not the point!
Now look at the price of FMG mid $30's and even reached $40 over the past 2weeks
You see, you can make extreme amounts of money with no effort required at all.
I could have executed that trade and never turned on the computer again for 2.5 years, then come back to see a massive account balance.
So it really does pose the question are most of us just simply wasting time mulling over hours and hours of charts, glued to a computer screen etc, when the majority of us could just buy almost any mining stock in the midst of a mining boom, and make squillions, just by being patient.
