No. of Recommendations: 1
The 90% is based on 11 trades. I've been doing the Fundamental Analysis and refining my Technical Analysis since late Dec. 2004 - I only started taking small gains as opposed for shooting for 10 baggers for about 3 weeks. The 11 trades are all in the past 3 weeks.

If I'd have been taking small gains sooner, I would have about double the number of trades as my TA was working just fine - I'd buy a stock and it went up - but instead of selling I held on for the very top only to watch the price plummet on some news or just for no apparent reason - so then I went long on those trades and am just now beginning to see the prices recover.
