Quick Tip: Time Horizon

More importantly for swing and position trading than day trading, knowing your time horizon in advance is critical. The decision on how long to hold a trade is your “expectation management.” 

One strategy our team trades uses significant insider buying (stocks) to forecast price direction. Plenty of research has been done to back up this thesis. No one knows more about the likely future performance of a company than those running it. When the CEO writes a 7 or 8 figure check to the open market to acquire more ownership, that’s a solid “tell.” 

The key to success with this knowledge is your time horizon. We’ve found that some of these insider buys will have an immediate impact on the stock price. Others require several weeks, even months, to work. 

This is good news. If you’re looking for a short-term trade your analysis should focus on catalysts that can have an immediate impact. If you prefer a less active trading style you can focus on more fundamental information. 

Either way, it’s important to align your expectations with the likely reality. 

We use a proprietary software program, InsidersEdge, to scan for candidates with both expectations. Team members receive daily email notifications of qualified candidates and weekly coaching sessions.
