'Tis possible to make money in a Bull Market, a Bear Market and a market going nowhere.
Using very simple T/A, identify stocks in a "sustainable" uptrend. That should not be too difficult an assignment. We tend to make things far more complex than necessary. It seems to me that some people evaluate the effectiveness of a T/A indicator or combination of indicators based on the degree of difficulty to "master" them and correctly interpret them. Ten million trees have been cut down to provide the paper for experts to describe in their books how to use T/A to make your fortune. How many books have been written on T/A? Even a broken clock is correct twice a day. Look through the smoke an dmirrors on T/A and stick to simplicity.
Check out the financials, look for strong cashflow and profit growth. Look at the quality of the management. For confirmation look at whether successful investment companies are increasing their shareholding, or whether directors are buying. Keep it simple.
Listen to the Market. Have a stop loss in place. No matter how certain you are that you have selected a good stock the market has a habit of making a fool out of you. You are a winner if you can cut your losses and evaluate your losing transactions.
Simple! Even in a bear market there are opportunities, you don't ever need to look for bargains.
