I have to criticize Amy Smith; on page 6 she shows a 2008 - 2012 chart of market prices that is labeled with arrows showing IBD's Market Direction Change calls (i.e. Market in Confirmed Uptrend and Market in Correction). The chart shows only seven such calls during this four-year period. In fact, there were no less than 61 Confirmed Uptrend and Correction calls made by IBD during the October 2008 through September 2012 period she shows. She conveniently selected her seven market direction change indications to show at the start of major long-term swings in the market - giving the impression that IBD's market direction calls are infrequent and always right. The truth is that their market direction calls can be very frequent and not always right, sometimes reversing a few days later. It can keep you busy hopping in and out of the market. This is just one aspect of IBD's system that make it much more complicated than what is portrayed in this book. Amy's deception, along with typos in this book, make me give it three stars.
This is a gem of a book, showing how real everyday people changed their lives through the teachings of William J. O'Neil and Investor's Business Daily. Many held stocks for 25% to 100% returns and more. Many made six figure returns and even became millionaires trading the right stocks in a real bull market.
The key to the system is buying the stocks in the companies that are changing the world at the right time out of of the right base in a bull market in an up trend.
Most have studied the rules, principles, and concepts in IBD and "How to make money in stocks" this book shows the art of putting it all together for great investment returns out of the mouths of the people who already did.
The only thing which works in the market is buy low and sell high. IBD leaderboard does a great job in identifying those great stocks. I missed out Nu Skin when it broke out after its quarterly results. I waited for the next opportunity which gcame when the NUS broke out at 90.17 i bought and sold it at 94.52 and then bought again at 92.50 and sold it at 94.75 after the fed announcement and bought some more at 94.44. One thing ibd or cbd or lbd doesnt teach u is buy low and sell high and rebuy again. Over a period of time this adds to ur confidence your profit margin and most importantly ur knowledge base. Here are some dangerous points about IBD
1. IBD says stocks once fallen never goes up. What happened to netflix it went from 300 dollars to 60 to go back to 300 dollars.
2. Late stage bases dont work. Oh really priceline , visa and stratasys are all in late stage bases they are all working fine.
3. Composite rating and rs line matter and so does new high . Oh really cree was at 73 dollars and one of the leadership board member when it crashed 20 percent after the earning.
4. Always buy on the gap up. really what did trip advisor do it gapped up only to go up t0 80 dollars and come back.
