    Wow great trade! In Jason’s analysis he mentioned Q4 earnings reports but also paying attention to the charts. Are his trades picked by a combination of fundamental analysis as well as technical? And was he basically watching the price action to ascertain when to get in and out of a position? I know many traders use a combination of the two. Thanks!

      Hi Christian – great question. When Jason makes short-term day or swing trades, which usually involve hold times of only 1-4 days or so, many of them are based almost entirely on technical analysis (charts and price action). When it comes to the longer-term trades like this particular ANGI one, for example, he’s planning on a hold time of a few weeks to a few months. Because of this, fundamental analysis increases in importance. Overall, he’s looking to pair quality catalysts with strong fundamentals and high-potential charts. The more indicators there are that the stock is undervalued, the better.

    A 10 week hold sounds like a short term compared to the long term strategies I have heard about. The trading option here seems like great work for professionals to take hold of. I hear of radio programs and online opportunities to take hold of this I would say if passionate about making money and not procrastinating on something that makes money in any market it seems. Thanks for the help

      Hi Andrew – you make a great point. Jason Bond offers a service called Long Term Trading, but it’s not your classic buy-and-hold for a year or longer approach that many people assume. It’s just longer than his typical day and swing trading hold times of roughly 1-4 days. As short-term traders, 10 weeks is a relatively long time to be holding a position in a stock. But that’s the type of flexibility most busy professionals need in order to take part in trading. Monitoring the market tick-by-tick simply isn’t an option for a lot of individuals. Overall, this type of longer-term trading with hold times of a few weeks to a few months is something I like to call a “Long Swing” approach. In the end, it shouldn’t be confused with a long-term investing strategy.
