When you master your craft (trading system) and can execute flawlessly - There is a price you pay - Work (trading) becomes boring.
However, the financial rewards become astronomical, just ask Tiger Woods or Roger Federer. ....And when you ask them how
they MASTERED THEIR 'CRAFT', they will tell you, it isnt the mechanics or system of their game that takes them to the top, but rather,
the six inches of space between their ears that they have learned to manage and master. Trading is no different. ~
In my opinion, trading momentum is for the investor that wants to get paid right now. It is nothing more then participating in a trend.
However, momentum investing is 'NOT' a good 'risk/reward' trade. In fact it is risky because you are betting on other investors to keep
buying in the face of higher prices by chasing prices. We are trying to profit from investors' fear of 'MISSING THE MOVE'.
However, you can manage this risk well. How? Because you can always sell (if your wrong).
NVTA's goal is to bring genetic screening to the masses. To be a one-stop shop where you can get genetically screened for any information that you might want to know. And they want to be able to do it at a very low cost, which is key to breaking down the barrier and making this something that everybody can go out and get. If healthcare is going to personalized medicine, NVTA products/services are a necessity. Individuals are going to know their genetic makeup and their predispositions to what drugs may or may not work well for them based on NVTA genetic screens. (Source: Motley Fool Roundtable Discussion)
'data' firm Elastic (NYSE: ESTC) powers the
searches that help connect ride-share customers at Uber and Lyft with drivers, connects
those looking for partners on Tinder, and even helps grocery shoppers find the items they need at Instacart. It also counts giants like
Barclay's , Cisco , and Sprint among its customers.
ESTC's core search technology is almost a general purpose technology with exploding use cases.
An example? Let's acknowledge the 'data' growth developing as a result of AUTONOMOUS Vehicle adoption. A possible use case for ESTC?
Every AUTONOMOUS car will generate the data equivalent of almost 3,000 people.
Extrapolate this further and think about how many cars are on the road. Lets estimate just 1 million AUTONOMOUS cars worldwide (< .10% vehicles worldwide - see below) - that means automated driving of just 1m cars will be representative of the data of 3 billion people, (Source: ex-Intel CEO Brian K.).
# Vehicles World Wide:
- 253 Million Vehicles (Cars and Trucks) On U.S. Roads; Average Age is 11.4 Years.
- 1.2 Billion Vehicles (Cars and Trucks) On World's Roads Now, 2 Billion By 2035. (Source: Green Car Reports)
In San Francisco, an Uber driver can take home around $200 for a full 8 to 10 hour workday, after gas and commission. He or she can
probably find a suitable vehicle for around $40 a day on HyreCar, where owners set the prices (which range from $15 to $200 a day).
Working 5 days a week and earning $160 per day for 50 weeks can provide a gross income of $40,000 annually.
Two times a day, Wall street delivers THRUST, BUST or STALL.
Use those KEY DECISION TIMES to identify and time THRUST as well as pick an ideal time to book gains or cut losses.
NOTE: This is not day trading.
