You place your buying orders a day after markets closed and place your orders to sell these stocks next day when markets are closed again (unless you have reached your target prices the same day). Though, if you are a new investor you'd better buy your shares by a limit order and sell them by a stop order, not necessarily next day but no longer than four days (swing trading).
Additionally, we include a "suggested price to buy", a "suggested price to sell" and a "stop price" in our information (not in the example above). After buying your stocks we recommend that you place order triggers to sell your stocks, two for each stock, one trigger for a lower limit (stop price, if price is equal or less than X it activates) and one trigger for an upper limit (target price, if price is equal or higher than Y it activates). Do not set the lower limit too close to the actual price because stock volatility can drive to a fast loss selling and, do not set the upper limit too high so you could not reach your target price in good time. Stocks in our portfolios that do not perform well the first day, generally perform well next day(s). Remember, never wait many days for that big jump in a stock price; a large profit can be readily nullified by many previous small losses.
We recommend you buy all stocks proportionally (similar money amounts for each group of shares. Don't put all your eggs in one basket).
An average behavior a day could be that five or six stocks get higher prices and two or three get lower prices.
For instance, if you want to invest $8000 you will try to buy eight groups of shares of $1000 each. When you want to buy a stock whose price is, e.g., $5.00, you could place your order to $5.02 to assure your purchase (an order for 199 shares in this example). Then, if the stock price rises to $6.50 you could place your selling order to $6.48 to assure your sale (Use 'ask' and 'bid' prices as references). You would win $290 for this stock.
You must consider the trade commissions your online brokerage service company charges you (per order). In the example above, if the brokerage company charges $10 per order, you would win actually $270 for this stock (subtract $10 per buying order and $10 per selling order). So, if you invest very small amounts of money, commissions can eat up your gains. To know more about discount brokers (full-service brokers are expensive) click here.

We recommend you begin with an initial capital of at least $10,000 to minimize risks. If you do not have this amount, say you only have $500 for investment, you can join an investment club (or begin one with your relatives and/or friends). To know more about investment clubs in the U.S.A. (rules can be different in other countries) click here. And remember, do not use for investing the money you need for food, education, home mortgage, etc. (Remember also, think BIG and you will become BIG).

If you have a capital between $2000 and $10000 and prefer to invest individually (not in an investment club), you'd better invest for short terms rather than daily trading to get your target prices (the lower your investment the higher your target price). We can also send you swing and short-term portfolios. These are portfolios to hold generally no longer than five days or four weeks, respectively. Rising a capital lower than $2000 in the stock market in a short time is really difficult (but not impossible).

If you are a U.S. citizen or resident and think that trading daily has a high turnover, so you have to pay more taxes for your gains, consider the following:
This is a fact, the more the gains, the more the taxes. But if your stock portfolio performs well daily (more profit per trade) it is worth trading for short terms than trading for long terms.
If you are a big investor and want to reduce your taxes, we can recommend you to trade with ETFs (exchange traded funds like QQQQ, SPY, IVV, VFINX, IWM, DIA, EWJ) for long terms. They do not perform as good as stocks (generally with less volatility as well) but better than mutual funds and with lower management fees than mutual funds (ETFs are traded like stocks). Because of the low turnover of the securities, they generate fewer capital gains and you get tax benefits. We also have long-term portfolios.

Though if you are a small investor (say less than $500,000), long-term trading is a slow way (many years) to get the house, the yacht or the jet of your dreams. So consider our strategy, do you really want to get rich or not?
Perhaps you would like to live in a no-tax state, like Nevada, to practice your daily stock trading.

Trading frequently you are protected against downward-spiraling markets.

We give you the strategy and the information, but remember, the key of a successful trader is a wise cash management. The idea is that you can, in a short time, risk your net profit and not your capital.

With our method you can get consistent profits and because you are trading daily and there is not any subscription to our e-mail information service, you have no obligation with us. You buy our information when you want (I hope that you understand that it makes good business sense to buy our information everyday.) So, if you want to go on vacation for two weeks, you can sell your stocks and hold your money in cash in your account with your brokerage company; when you come back you can begin to trade again and receive our information.
