How To Succeed With IBD
1. Market Direction: Read The Big Picture column every day on What’s The Market Trend? page to stay in step with the general market trend. This is crucial since most stocks follow the direction of the general market averages. You should only buy stocks when the market is in a rising trend. You should raise some cash during correcting markets. The Big Picture highlights key turning points and tells you every day whether the market is in a confirmed uptrend or a correction.
2. Stock Ideas: IBD is filled with features to help you find potential winners. Be sure to check out the IBD 50 every Monday and Wednesday to see the market’s top 50 growth stocks, complete with commentary on those that may be nearing a potential buy point. Each day you’ll find candidates in Stocks On The Move and Stock Spotlight. Also, examine the Sector Leaders featured in the NYSE & Nasdaq Research Tables. These stocks must pass rigorous fundamental tests and have a strong record of beating the S&P 500 during market uptrends.
3. Validate: Before buying any stock, go to   and research it further. See how the Stock Checkup rates your company and whether it’s among the top 5 stocks in its IBD industry group. Read archived stories to understand the company's strengths, growth prospects and what sets it apart from rivals. Examine the stock using IBD Charts to pinpoint a low-risk buying area. Then add quality candidates to My Stock Lists and be ready to act if the stock breaks out in volume.
For more on these stock features and concepts, set a free session with an IBD Trainer at  . IBD Trainers will show you how to get the most out of IBD. (Trainers cannot and do not offer advice on individual stocks.)
