The Stock Trading Warrior's Guide
to Holding Stocks
and What to Do While They Incubate

Since the May newsletter, I hope you've had a chance to work through Step 5 of your Stock Trading System - A Winning Stock Trading Plan in which you've put together, in writing, your personal plan for investing in stocks.

This month, in Step 6 the discussion turns to the question of what to do after you've entered a stock position. Initially, you might think you don't have to do anything, but the reality is that a bit of monitoring goes a long way to adding to the success of your bottom line.

Find out the right way to handle gains or losses - and the laggards too. You know, the stocks that don't seem to do anything for your portfolio but take up capital.

Let's find out how to handle the three main stock holding situations and move on to Holding Stocks and What to Do while They Incubate.

Next month, we'll cover Step 7 in creating a Winning Stock Trading System by talking about when to close out a stock position.

What Stock Investing Information
Do You Need and Want?

As I look to the future, I'd like to ask you what it is that you need or want when it comes to stock trading and investing. Please take a moment and send me your suggestions by using my contact form.

I understand how difficult it can be to be really successful investing in the stock market. For that reason, I want Stock-Trading-Warrior.com to be the go-to place as one of the best resources for stock market investors.

The Facebook IPO

Stock Trading Warrior
One of the most popular investing discussions has been the initial public offering of shares of the social networking phenomenon Facebook. But, should you really be investing in Facebook at this stage of the game? To get a Stock Trading Warrior's perspective read my blog entry.

TradeKing and Zecco Are Merging

Stock Trading

Last month, two popular online stock trading brokers agreed to merge their operations. and Zecco.com will create the sixth-largest online brokerage with some of the best, discounted trade commissions available along with the intention to create a far better trading experience for investors.

The low-cost commission rate will remain at $4.95 per trade. For options, the rate will be $4.95, plus $0.65 per options contract.

The merger is expected to be completed in one to two months and the brokerages will combine their resources to offer more services from a single platform.

Stock Trading Warrior Pix
Hot or Not?

Giant Interactive Group Inc. (GA)

GA (Giant Interactive Group, Inc) was an April stock pick and it set up in late March with a buy price of $5.25. The price bumped along between $5.20 to $5.60 before hitting its sell price at $5.15 on May 9th which was a loss of -1.96%.

This month there are no new long side recommendations because the markets are trending downward. It's best to wait to open any new long positions until the market shows signs of moving upward. While standing on the sidelines until the market perks up, there are some stocks I would watch and they are LPSN, ED and VHC.
