What’s the target? Objective entry, stop-loss and acceptable capital exposure. Learn how to attain these by trading with the trend.Most traders have heard the old market adage, “the trend is your friend.” However, once a trend has actually developed, how does one get into a trade in the direction of the trend with acceptable capital exposure? To do this, it is necessary to first observe and learn the different characteristics of a trend and counter-trend (or correction).
Jesse Livermore made $100 million in the Great Crash of 1929 by being short the market. Shorting, or borrowing stock and selling it in the expectation it can be bought back more cheaply later, was viewed as unpatriotic, and Livermore was pilloried in Congress.
Shorting is still regarded as verging on contemptible. You can't do it in government-regulated accounts like IRAs and 401(k)s. But it's still a great way to make money when everybody else is losing it -- and right now, a lot of us are losing it.
