That's the trick...and if there were a simple answer that I (or anyone else) could post here, we'd all have more money than we knew what to do with...right, that's obvious, but how do you know when it's reached it's low? or when it's reached it's high? Example....If you owned google stock when would you sell it at it's 'height'? When it hit $200? 400 bucks is pretty high? So was $500, $600 and $700? When it was at $400 did you determine that it was too high to buy? As it turns out it was pretty low at $400 as well.
I mean... if you go long S&P futures with 2:1 leverage, you might make twice what the S&P returns next year, but your risk-adjusted return is still market return...I agree, my point is google more than beat the market, so you did not need to find the top.
Adjusting for risk? Use options. If your data is correct, buy calls. $500 investment, unlimited upside, downside. $500. Your risk is now completely isolated.
Why am I caught with my pants down right now? I violated this rule, and decided to by the stocks and sell covered calls. ahh such is life. I will just take the losses to reduce my taxes for this year.
