Hi Charlottesville IBD Meetup Members,
Our September meetup is Wednesday, September 22nd 7 P.M. at our same location since 2003 - 918 Emmet Street, Charlottesville.
We would like to welcome any new members to our group and to remind them to arrive at the meetup location before 7 P.M. I
will greet you at the door until 7 P.M., lock the door to the building and start the meetup promptly at 7 P.M.
As a follow-up to our August meetup, I hope everyone has had a chance to review the Goal Setting 101 and Mindset Principles
notes I shared with the group. Also, if you haven't already done so, take the Attachment to Money Survey. Both documents
are available for download from our website www.ibd.meetup.com/68 under MORE>FILES . Technical analysis, chart reading, etc.
are all great but if you don't have a trading plan or the proper mindset to trade, your long-term trading success will be limited.
I uploaded some documents to the website that can be used to help you create a trading plan and to manage trades. Feel free
to download and modify them to make them suitable to your style. Whatever method you choose to use as a trade plan, follow
it and keep it simple to use.
IBD Curriculum -
IBD is always working with meetup coordinators to find ways to improve the IBD meetup experience. I just wanted to send you a
quick update about the IBD curriculum recently developed for use at our meetups. IBD will send the meetup coordinators an email
that will include the PowerPoint presentation, a short video and PDF that can be viewed at the meetups. Unfortunately, September���s
materials will not be released in time for our September meetup.
Below are the twelve lessons, so you know what���s coming next:
Month 1 (October) ��� Recognizing General Market Tops.
Month 2 ��� Recognizing General Market bottoms and Follow-Through Days.
Month 3 ��� Learning to Read Charts with Skill and Identifying Correct Buy Points.
Month 4 ��� Using Past Chart Patterns for Historical Precedent to Find Current Winning Stocks.
Month 5 - Why Cutting All Loses is Critical to Success.
Month 6 ��� When to sell & Take Worthwhile Profits on the Way up while a Stock is Advancing.
Month 7 ��� Components of Winning Stocks: Finding Stock with Big Accelerating Earnings & Sales in recent quarters and the last three years.
Month 8 - Components of Winning Stocks: Finding Stocks with Big Return on Equity & Pre Tax Margins are essential.

& how to evaluate Institutional Support.

Month 11 - Getting it Right: How to Conduct a Post Analysis of Your Key Mistakes & How to Create Rules to Prevent the Same Types of Mistakes in the Future.
Month 12 ��� Picking Leading Stocks from Leading Sectors to Find Winners.
Future meetup info -
I've arranged to have a guest speaker from the IBD home office in Los Angeles, CA meet with us at our February meetup. Details of his topic
to be announced at a later date.
September meetup -
Craig Cooper offered to make a presentation at the September meetup to show new and experienced members how anyone can make $1 million. He prepared a 2 page guide on how to make that $1 million. The power of compounding is very powerful. Small steady returns can add up fast. I have printed copies of his document and will distribute them at the meetup. Our thanks to Craig for doing this.
I was hoping that the IBD course material would be ready before we meet next week. If you have a topic of interest you would like to discuss
or present at the meetup, please contact me. Our Charlottesville IBD meetup membership is comprised of novice and experienced traders. In fairness to the experienced traders, we can't dedicate all our meetup time each month to only reviewing the basics of the IBD CAN SLIM methodology. Novice members must take it upon themselves to become familiar with the IBD methodology by subscribing to IBD or at least purchasing the meaty Monday edition available at Barnes and Noble, Kroger and other outlets and reading the recommended material written by William J. O'Neal and others.
We look forward to seeing everyone Wednesday evening. Remember, this is your meetup...make the most of it.
All the best,
Jim and Cathy Popp
