New Stock Trading Venture Launch 09 January 2013

Thank you once again for showing interest in our proposal for a new venture regarding stock trading. To receive such a positive response from our readership has given us a real boost. We will try to cover the main points below, but if we miss something do write and ask us your question.

We had a few technical difficulties with the name of this venture as some of the suggestions clashed with other services so we settled on ‘Stock Trader’ for now, and the nearest competitor was Deborah with Focused Stock Trader, so she wins a one year subscription to our new service.

As a gentle reminder of what we intend we have reiterated some of the main points below:

1. The focus will be mainly, but not limited to, the gold, silver and energy sectors and cover the large caps, medium sized producers and some of the smaller enterprises with quality being a key consideration.

2. The strategy would not be so much of a ‘buy and hold’ one, more of a ‘catch the wave’ in a particular stock and stay with it until we believe that it has reached its fair value before disposal.

3. You will need to be patient as we will not be rushed into trades.

4. We will have ‘skin in the game’ and run a model portfolio starting with say $10,000.00, each trade would probably attract between 5%-10% of our funds, although we will not be imposing limitations on ourselves and we will trade where and when we see fit to do so. This service would sit alongside our options trading service where resources can be shared but would be ‘stock’ focused. This will be a no frills service with trading signals being sent via email as and when we buy or sell a stock. These signals will be confidential to our premium subscribers only.

5. There will be no options or futures trading involved.

6. All trades, the good, the bad and the ugly will be recorded so that our performance is visible to everyone. We will keep the trading record on the gold-prices website.

7. There will be no gifts, trial periods or refunds.

8. Auto-trading will be made available, providing sufficient subscribers request it.

As regular readers will know we have steered clear of precious metals stocks in general as we were of the opinion that the inherent risks involved in the business of mining was not worth our hard earned cash.

For two years or so we avoided them, however, the risk/reward environment has improved to the point where we see a number of exciting opportunities on the horizon that we can take advantage of.

2013 could well be another hard year for the mining sector so timing our acquisitions and disposals will be crucial to our decision making process.

We will issue a trading signal to you via email as soon as we open or close a trade.  

Please go gently with every trade and only risk what you can afford to lose. We will usually allocate either 5% to 10% of our funds to each trade.

The fee for this service is US$199.00 per annum; there will be no 6 month subscription as we want you to stick with us for 12 months, which will allow us the time to prove our worth to you.

We are not financial advisers and do not give financial advice to anyone, only access to what we do in terms of trading.

Your time and comments are very much appreciated.

Welcome aboard our new venture we do hope that you find it enjoyable and profitable.

Very tempting. I have never used a service like this before, but having read your commentary for a year of two, I like your approach at least from a fundamentals perspective. I have a couple of questions:

1. Which stock exchanges will I need access to, if I want to take part in all the trades? I am missing access to Canada through my present broker, but I’m guessing that will be one of your big ones?

2. What will the frequency of your trades be? My capital stake would be relatively small, so dealing fees could be significant if this is a high frequency service.

3. I already have capital invested in that same sector right now. I am thinking about the best way to move out of my stocks and into your trades, because some of them are likely the very same stocks.

Hope this helps;

1. Mainly NYSE, and then possibly TSX, ASX and the London Stock Exchange. (Do ask yourself; are you a service to your broker or is he a service to you?)

2. The frequency of trades is a hard one, we just don't know. When the set-up is right we may move on 2 or 3 stocks, but there could also be periods of time when we need to sit on our hands and allow our positions the time to develop. As you know we have not bought a stock for about two years as we were of the opinion that the returns were just not there.

So now its a question of seeking out some of the quality oversold stocks and placing a trade to catch the wave, as we say and then identifying a suitable exit strategy. We could hold for days, weeks or even months, when the risk/reward environment is in our favor.

3. We cant help you on this one and do bear in mind that we are financial advisers and do not give financial advice.

All the best,

Bob K
