The Trader seeks to identify trading opportunities that occur on the stock market which could provide the potential for short-term profits. Many of these situations arise on the back of company news flow, such as a company’s results or trading statement, where the initial share price move seems unjustified. In such circumstances, investors can benefit by acting quickly to take advantage of what may prove to be a ‘knee jerk reaction’ in the company’s share price.
These share price movements may be up or down as investors can go short of stocks if they have a spread betting or CFD account. One of the most important aspects of stock market trading is timing and so ‘The Trader’ will be making ‘real time’ recommendations with an actual buying price and a suggested selling price.
