Traders, stock market enthusiasts, even regular people who play stock market games online, are forever searching for the most fool-proof ways to predict how the market is going to move. More importantly, they are constantly in search of a way to know when it is best to sell or buy stocks that could potentially gain or lose value in the near future. Basically, they are trying to pin down how to make money in the stock market consistently and successfully.
There are multiple methods, and most often, each one is named for the mathematician, trader, or analyst who designed and implemented it.
While some are quite successful, others require a level of expertise that most trader/hobbyists do not possess. One of the more accessible methods for successful trading is that of the ambush trade, which affords traders the ability to trade a wide range of markets when these markets are rallying, by following the psychology behind the rise and fall of a particular group of markets, as opposed to simply watching numerical trends. When implemented correctly, the ambush method can have a profound effect on a trader’s profits.
The key element of the ambush method is to know when to trade. Often times it is better to stay back in the bushes and hide while more powerful Bull and Bear forces fight it out on the battlefield for dominance. When both the Bulls and Bears are evenly matched, it’s better to stay on the sidelines and the safety of cash.
