Daily Trend and Trade Review

.....You will need to log in to use the portfolio feature, and we offer a 30 day free trial. No credit card information is required upon sign up for the trial, and we respect your privacy, thus your personal information, including your email information will not be passed onto anyone outside of AlphaKing.
 
Once logged in you will be greeted with the current copy of our portfolio update and stock market review. This is updated each trading day after the stock market has closed. Our research shows that the action of the stock market has a tremendous influence on returns and performance of individual stocks, thus the 'Trader Talk' is slanted directly at the technical health of the stock market. The chart of the NASDAQ on the right of our daily summary page clearly highlights whether the stock market is in buy or sell mode. We only add positions - long or short - in-line with the overall stock market trend, as our research shows that a trend-following approach vastly outperforms contrarian fighting the market methods.
 
No one can accurately forecast a stock, or stock market movement over the long term, for, as the saying goes, there are only two kind of forecasters in this world: those who don't know, and those who don't know they don't know. We use only those methods that have proven to work in the past over the long term, with our strategies and indicators are based on results of the massive AlphaKing research project.....
 

Trades:

Index Portfolio: No new trades for tomorrow.

GrQ/4 ETF Portfolio: No new trades for tomorrow.

GrQ/8 Hedge Fund Portfolio: No new trades for tomorrow.

GrQ/25 Small Cap Portfolio: We are buying IO at the open tomorrow.


 .....The Index portfolio trades the NASDAQ 100 exchange traded fund - QQQQ - either long or short based on the trade advisory of our AlphaKing Trading indicator, which is shown and updated in our daily summary. The strategy aims to be long the NASDAQ 100 index (QQQQ) during bull-runs, and short the NASDAQ 100 index (QQQQ) through the bear corrective phases, with 401K invertors and those electing a more conservative approach moving into a money market fund during the sell periods. This Index approach is perfect as a well-diversified stand alone trading strategy for those traders looking for stock market exposure without the hassle of buying and tracking multiple stock positions, as well as the 401K investor looking to diversify the risks associated with the buy/hold/hope approach commonly used in such retirement accounts. The average number of trades per year is 3.1 since 1973, though any one year can be significantly higher.

The Alpha King GrQ/4 ETF portfolio trades either long or short based on the trade advisory of the AlphaKing Trading indicator, with current and new positions shown and updated each day after the stock market has closed. While our research shows that shorting stocks and ETFs when the stock market is in bear-corrective-mode leads to higher profits overall, our research also shows these gains are much more difficult to achieve than trading long-only and moving into a money market fund during these sell periods. Only those traders and investors who understand and accept the added volatility and risk should consider trading stocks short. We believe most investors should be trading long only, though how you use the information we provide is entirely up to you.

The Alpha King GrQ/8 Hedge Fund portfolio trades either long or short based on the trade advisory of the AlphaKing Trading indicator, with current and new positions shown and updated each day after the stock market has closed. While our research shows that shorting stocks when the stock market is in bear-corrective-mode leads to higher profits overall, our research also shows these gains are much more difficult to achieve than trading long-only and moving into a money market fund during these sell periods. Only those traders and investors who understand and accept the added volatility and risk should consider trading stocks short. We believe most investors should be trading long only, though how you use the information we provide is entirely up to you.

The Alpha King GrQ/25 Small Cap portfolio is a larger, more diversified version of the GrQ/8 Hedge Fund portfolio that trades the small capitalized stocks meeting the rigorous AlphaKing fundamental and technical quantitative screening process. This portfolio trades small cap stocks when in buy mode, and shorts the market using inverse Index ETFs when in sell mode. Our research shows that this beta leveraged product is one of the optimal ways to take full advantage of the Alpha King screening and timing system during bull markets and intermediate term advances. GrQ/25 was entered into the investment competition run by Marketocracy.com - who are looking to find the best investors and investment strategies in the world - with the portfolio achieving a return of 206% since mid-2001 through to 3/29/2006** - without margin - turning $10,000 into $30,600, during one of the worst bear markets in history! - with this strategy routinely placing near the top of Marketocracy's longer term, 3, 4, and 5 year rankings, out of 70,000 competing strategies. See performance chart below.

401K Investors should use the long only version of the Index portfolio to time entry and exit of positions within their retirement accounts, moving into an Index mutual fund when the AlphaKing Trading indicator turns positive, and into a money market fund when the AK Trading indicator flips into sell mode......

.....It is rare for competing financial websites to provide trackable performance profiles to help gauge what indicators, signals, and opinions a trader or investor should be following. AlphaKing strongly believes in results driving all investment decisions, and returns for the stocks in our portfolios are shown and updated every day, with profitable positions highlighted in green, and unprofitable ones highlighted in red.
 
In addition to the current positions being updated daily, overall performance of the portfolios is highlighted in the 'Performance' section located directly beneath the 'Trade' summary box. These performance stats highlight the portfolio returns including all current open positions, as well as all closed trades for the current trading year, as well as past results. 
 
We also show a performance chart of the GrQ/25 small cap portfolio, which is tracked and provided by Marketocracy.com. We believe that chart speaks for itself. 
 
One potential drawback to active trading of larger portfolios is the costs associated with buying and selling larger numbers of stocks. To counter this problem we have partnered with the on-line stock broker, FolioFn, so that all trades in the AlphaKing portfolios can be executed for a total commission cost of $290 per year. That is a substantial saving over traditional discount brokers, saving as much as $1,400 per year (with $10.95 commission charge trading the GrQ/25 portfolio 3 times per year.)

.....Please take a moment to read how trading performance results are tabulated, as well as the disclaimer. Stock trading is a very difficult, often costly pursuit, with past performance no guarantee of future success, and only those traders and investors who understand and accept those risks should consider buying and selling stocks.....
 

Results are tabulated using the opening price the day following a new trading signal, and exclude commissions, dividends, or interest paid on cash balances during sell periods. Stock prices highlighted in blue are temporary - using the end of day quote the day a new buy or sell signal is generated - with the final price adjusted the following trading day when the opening price is available. Past performance is no guarantee of future success
