We first came across Stock Bee back in January of 2007 when we were forwarded this great post on “Beating the market on $1.25 per week”. Ever since we have been avid readers as the Bee has helped us to separate the wheat from the chaff as the saying goes.
The Bee is loaded with useful info. One article that we really like is “Can you learn from trading books?” Since we are avid readers of all things financial we have been asked several times from friends questions like “what book should I get to learn to trade?” or “does that book show you how to make money trading?” Honestly if these are the questions you have then you must read this post.
Overall we would have to say that if you are a relatively active trader then you should add Stock Bee to your RSS and even consider joining the members only blog.
Chris Perruna is one of the better known stock trading bloggers out there. He is a part-time trader who primarily uses the CANSLIM method of trading and has gotten quite a bit of good press for his accurate calls. One of his most popular and definitely a very useful post is on position sizing and expectancy. Here he provides a post explaining position sizing along with some excellent and very useful spreadsheets that help you figure out risk management for your trading system.
Aside from picking individual stocks, Chris is also very adept at calling the market. Here is a chart with his recent calls along with a history of his recent posts calling out tops and bottoms. As you can tell he is an experienced market technician and has done a good job at helping his readers navigate the crazy markets that we have experienced the past couple of years.
In addition to his blog and his regular posts he also is active on twitter. If you are interested in the stock market, are already an active trader, and especially if you are an active CANSLIM trader you will find worthwhile content on his site. A definite must add to your RSS reader.
Stock Pick Bob
in one of the godfathers of the investing blog world. He started posting back in May of 2003. Here is the first post that we could find on his site, here talking about St Jude Medical
. His newest post (as of May 2nd 2009) is here and is on Building a Portfolio: “Intelligent Design” or “Natural Selection”
As long time readers and any successful trader will tell you it is a prerequisite of success that you evolve. In the case of this blog we have been able to watch Bob evolve as an investor and trader for several years now. While we didn’t find his blog until 2006, he has been around for a while and does an excellent job in teaching and helping the readers see what and why he is looking at different stocks. While he continually lets readers know that none of this is construed to be investment advice, it is obvious that he is a seasoned investor and is worth reading for his insights alone.
Happy Blogging and Investing,
Read the Prospectus
is a great site for traders interested in technical analysis. It is an even better site for traders who use Think Or Swim as their trading platform. Read the Prospectus is a master thinkscipt
programmer and regularly gives away excellent thinkscripts
. If you use Think Or Swim then you MUST read this blog.
Even if you dont use Think or Swim, this blog is still very much worth reading if you use or are learning to use technical analysis in your trading. You see the writer of this blog doesn’t just write indicators and trading systems but also explains why he decided to write it. If he needs an indicator that no one else has then he builds it. Who wouldn’t love to know the exact originations of stochastics and whey the investor needed it (attributed but not really invented by George Lane, and not really stochastics either)? Or sit along side Appel as he figured out MACD and how to use it.
This blog gives you this opportunity as Read the Prospectus lets you come along for the ride as the writer discusses the why and the how of each of his indicators. In addition he still has them for free. This is a wonderful resource for all technical analysts, and a must have resource for fellow Think or Swimmers.
Happy Trading and Blogging,
