agree very strongly with Buffett's methods

Hey Barcoo & All esp when I looked at the silver buying he did a while ago, almost like a trader.

It's true also that many of the most followed long term TA preachers systems through up many stocks that qaulify as undervalued from a FA point of view. Esp if you were to use only say top 200 stocks.

One of the main things that seperates the two systems, in general , it seems to me is, Ta has much stricker entry & exits were most value Fa systems are looser on entrys & exits.

Now of cause they a totaly dif in their methods to qaulify the stocks & if you perform your fa well one could argue(as Harmy proposed) that you are only dealing with undervalued quality, were TA alone could throw more iffy ones.

I think Harmys system is a very good idea from a risk reward point of view.

Anyone see any negatives in Harmys approach?
