Quick Tip: Your Flexible Advantage
There is no question the information, systems, access, and talent Wall Street enjoys are great advantages over the retail trader. But we have one advantage they would love to have and won’t. Small size.
Warren Buffett bought 60 million shares in Taiwan Semiconductor. It took 3 months. That’s about 1 million shares a day from the then average volume of 11 million. That process had to be carefully managed. Concealing that he was a buyer is important to him because once he announces the investment the herd follows. In this case TSM popped 9%+.
How long do you think it will take Warren to exit this investment? He doesn’t trade short term but he did have a rather quick time with IBM years ago. Could happen.
You simply click your mouse. And that means you can be very flexible. You can choose a direction and if you’re wrong you can instantly exit or reverse direction. Just make sure you made the decision in advance of stopping out.
