MarketHEIST Review Issue 3: Algo Trading, Position Sizing, Volume Patterns, & Aggressiveness

Whenever you do something new that you truly believe in, and contributors and readers alike share the same enthusiasm, that in itself is the top motivation to  continue and making it better.  As the saying goes, "give a man a fish, and he eats for a day.  Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime." Or something to that effect.  We're not here to give "right now" trade ideas but instead, empower you with the knowledge and give you the tools so you can make the most out of trade ideas you see and read.  As Michele Schneider from MarketGauge called it, this is the "Evergreen" approach.

So, may your investing and trading accounts be "forEVER green."

~Jeffrey Lin, MarketHEIST CEO & newsletter editor

Review of the Best Investing Tips, Tools, Tricks, and Tutorials on MarketHEIST

for April 1, 2011 through April 15, 2011.

We're excited and honored by all the great traders, analysts, and strategists that wanted to share their expertise in this issue.  We just couldn't fit them all in, so we're holding them for the next issue.  If you haven't signed up for our newsletter, grab it here.

This is the dedication to teaching of the types of traders we select for our newsletter. One of the authors this month Frank Perry (StockGuy22.com) designed a simple card game that teaches position sizing, money management, and risk reward analysis.  Frank played the game himself to collect real results for you to play and compare yourself, and he did all this after full day of trading, articles and trade ideas on twitter and his own site, and mentoring students till late into the night.  Francis Hunt (The Market Sniper) had a similarly full schedule and put in hours for his lesson, which'll we had to push to the next newsletter.

Our lessons this month also feature Michele Schneider from MarketGauge, Eli Radke from TraderHabits, and Jeff White from TheStockBandit.

Read the newsletter below, print it, share it, save the PDF.  Whatever you do, just enjoy it!
