Session 2: IBD’s Strategy for Investment Success
In this customized session, we’ll go beyond the brief overview of the CAN SLIM Investment System in Session 1 and give your Meetup group a detailed look at how to use the same strategy that has outperformed the S&P 500 by a ratio of over 27 5o 1 since 1998* We’ll cover:
CAN SLIM Checklist: We’ll walk you through a step-by-step checklist for identifying stocks displaying the 7 traits top-performing stocks display before they make their biggest price moves.
Use the checklist to review current market leaders and see where to find the data
using IBD* and Investors.com.
Learn to separate between acceptable weaknesses and fatal flaws while evaluating
Using Charts to Time Your Buys: We’ll also discuss how to use the three most common chart patterns to identify the optimal time to buy a stock. Theses are classic trading patterns your group can learn to recognize more easily as an IBD speaker traces current and past examples as they form.
Learn to spot Cup-With-Handle, Double Bottom and Flat Base patterns, using current
and historical examples.
Discuss easy-to-miss, but important flaws that will help you avoid weaker stocks, even
though their patterns may seem picture perfect.
Sell Rules to Protect Your Portfolio: Evaluating both overall market conditions and the health of your individual stocks, you’ll learn to spot key sell signals to lock in profits and keep any losses small.
Learn how to use the “distribution day” count in The Big Picture to protect your profits and reduce your exposure BEFORE the market tumbles.
See why cutting all losses at 7% and taking most profits at 20% can help you
systematically achieve solid returns – without having to get huge gains in any one
*In an independent real time study by the American Association of Individual Investors from 1998 through December[masked], the CAN SLIM System gained 1,521. 7% vs. a gain of 54.92% by the S&P500.
