This month we will be trying out our new Ready? Set. Go! presentation format. We hope you find it more colorful and engaging. And we have some great topics prepared!  Here are just a few highlights:

Big Picture & Market Health: Current market outlook and what it means to CAN SLIM investors

Chart Analysis: Analysis of Past Winners

CAN SLIM: Where to find winners now, how to evaluate stock candidates, and helpful tools in stock selection

Sell Rules: We will identify some key sell signals to preserve capital and profits

Our Watch Lists: Our Leaders, Stocks Near Buy Points, Our Cut List

Resource Highlight: We quickly highlight a ‘Volume’ tool often overlooked to maximize profits and minimize losses

Motivation Moment: A brief look at building a motivated foundation with a financial classic


Our goal is to make this meetup group a valuable and dynamic resource. Only with your input can we improve and grow! We hope to see you there!

    Stocks that aren't in the the top 40 do advance and make profits. The difference is probabilities. Stocks in the top 40 are MORE likely to advance consistently then those that aren't. Our watch list isn't limited to only the Top 40 Industry Groups. Industry groups cycle and economic conditions change- some groups come into favor, some fall out. If a stock has great fundamentals then it is worthy of being on our list. Before buying it , it must still form a proper base. Then it must be monitored closely for any signs of weakness since the probability of success isn't as strong.

    Iliked the meeting and thought it was informative. however i thought we were suppose to look for winners in the top 40 groups and have them in our watch list. Harold Koenig

    Market is now under pressure with our today's distribution. Watch how your leading stocks are acting and how they will act in the coming days. And start a watch list during this time too.

    We had a good turnout with so many nice people!! We had many great questions! It was fantastic how everyone participated! There was an incredible variety of experience in the room and it was wonderful to have so many share their ideas! We’ll be posting files from the meetup throughout the week so keep an eye out for them. A very special thanks to all the kind souls that helped us put the chairs and tables away! ;-)

    There was SO much great information at the meeting! As a new trader, a lot of the information was a little over my head, but I still learned a lot and enjoyed the presenters and meeting the other participants. Fantastic slides and preparation done by John and Heather - I'm impressed at all of the work they put into this. I also found some of the other participants' comments and feedback very helpful. I especially appreciated Ed's "nugget" that "if you sell a stock at a 7 or 8% loss, then you should be happy that your system worked, if not, you may not be psychologically ready to trade." That was a great take-away for me. Thanks, John and Heather!
