My focus is strictly on the best stocks with highest upside potential right now. I use various criteria for picking, utilizing both fundamental and technical analysis. Every purchase that I make comes with a stop loss, however I monitor every stock and might sell it much sooner than it reaches the order price. This might be because it either reached my estimated profit or I no longer see potential in the stock. Selling is a very tricky and I consider it the hardest part of trading. I believe in concentrating my portfolio into the best stocks and watching them closely. My goal is to outperform market averages (of course, why else would I trade?) over a longer time horizon with a reasonable degree of risk.
I trade the US, UK and Hong Kong Markets, because my strategy is quite universal and can be applied on many other markets. I also believe that developed countries have entered an era of deleveraging, which will depress their real GDP growth rates and take many years to solve. Adding Chinese stocks gives me an exposure to different companies and regions, which in my opinion offer great returns in the near future.
