Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Have you found any evidence that stocks, which are highlighted in IBD's top 50, are targeted by algo systems that can, for example, force out many retail traders by selling a stock down 8% and then buying to cover-- all the while knowing that investors will buy back in.
A: No. Leading stocks can still be bought and pyramided, then sold at a profit using sell rules such as the 10dma/50dma. Of course, even in less challenging markets, the success rate is usually 50% at best (this was O'Neil's typical success rate in a bull market) thus the importance of cutting your losers and riding your winners.
