Echo. I purchased earlier in the week.
Unprecedented time's are creating unprecedented opportunities.
Selectively and coordinatated. It's not just the dumb money...
The point of this thread?
Look how that was flat now I can see it’s risen 100%?
Some here have made a motza by the looks
How Did you find them?
Why did you buy them?
Where and why will you sell them?
Unfortunately the thread title does nothing for
Marketing of the thread might be worth changing
To get more interest and participation .
Would you (anyone, not just aus_trader) have bought on the tiny red bar in late July, or the next day on the big jump? Because that would make all the difference
1. Any prediction methods are the same as any other stock, but with a lower expectancy (if that's the right word, ie, lower chance of expected or perceived outcomes).As @tech/a said, how do you predict these small cap stocks shooting skyward? Or are we all just posting FC's after the fact? Some of the posts show FC's skyrocketing, others show FC's flatlining, but all seem to be after the fact.
Also, if these small caps can rise so quickly, can't they fall just as fast?
If you bought say 10 of these, without knowing the future, what is your prediction of what your overall profit might be? I know, a vague question, but do you think "rich", "break even", "broke", or "I have no bloody idea"?
That chart has a big clue (massive volume signal) 1 month before.Would you (anyone, not just aus_trader) have bought on the tiny red bar in late July, or the next day on the big jump? Because that would make all the difference
I think it's extremely difficult to predict in advance a stock before the 'pop'. However there is probably opportunities after the pop if it is due to a trigger that may initiate an uptrend or a rally in the stock.Would you (anyone, not just aus_trader) have bought on the tiny red bar in late July, or the next day on the big jump?

So in the case of CDD, I have monitored it during the long downtrend and only looks interesting now after the 'pop' with volume, so that's why I decided to post it in this thread.
Hey @over9k,Here's a really simple one:
Coronavirus vaccines. I think there's six vaccines at stage 3 trials at the moment. Apparently, roughly 50% of trials which reach stage 3 end up passing it/going to market, so with this information alone, we can say that any company with a vaccine at stage 3 has a 50/50 shot of it working out and them making epic bank.
No worries Linus van Pelt, thanks for asking. I am quite happy to explain my stock selection process openly and have been doing so for a while now in the Speculative Stock Portfolio.Thanks @aus_trader. Just to be clear, I wasn't "having a go". I was just trying to better understand the message in this thread. Thanks for your additional perspective above, i.e some possibilities after the 'pop'.
It just seemed like folks were posting microcaps that had either skyrocketed recently, or flatlined for a while. Anyone can post whatever matches their message...after the fact. If I could do this before the fact, I wouldn't be here, I'd be sipping cocktails on my private island .
While I'd love to double, triple, or more my money in one day (or one hour), I don't have the skill to predict when that would happen, nor do I want to lose all my money in an hour either. I don't think the volatility of these microcaps is for me, but more power to those who can make it work.
@peter2 also helped put some context around this thread for me.
(While tech/a suggested a better title, it was actually the title that got me to read this thread )
Well unlike most around here that just do this on the side I trade my own money full time from home so I have bloomberg, cnbc, and abc news 24 streaming 24/7.Hey @over9k,
This may be a dumb question, but hopefully I'll be less dumb after your answer...
How do you keep up with financial/industry news? Coronavirus is such a hot topic, perhaps you know the above just by living life. While I'm working toward technical trading, I need to find a way to keep up with fundamental/financial/company announcements. My broker has a company announcement section, but I can't click them all. There just aren't enough hours in the day.
Perhaps setting up some RSS feed? Or some other "bot" that sends the news to me?
