this email to try and remind you of a few effective trading principles,
any questions, just ask. Buying new highs (judiciously) will put you
in with the trend and does make money over time. Sorting out emotional
concerns is the tough part. This is the same for everyone - no
exceptions seen by me yet.
This is trading, and I don't watch the market at anytime during trading
hours. And if my emotions don't get the better of me, I try to stick to
tried and trusted patterns (cup and handle, triangle) buying all time

If only longer term trading interests you, do the same thing as above
but hold, and stick just to stocks with a yield, eg bol. A stock going
up has to at some point make new highs...
eg, ocl, all time new highs early August
My over-riding aim is to try and always have my buy stocks always in the
new highs list. If they ain't there, then I ain't performing. And
being 8 hours behind the market, that new highs list always gets me out
of bed in the morning over here...no matter what (well almost)
