In addition to the many daily trade ideas we have at Philstockworld, we also keep several virtual portfolios for education and discussion. While our virtual portfolios are a Membership exclusive, you can see some of our prior virtual portfolios and monthly trade reviews in our Portfolio Review section. Recently, our monthly trade reviews (trade ideas from Phil's morning posts and Member Chat) have been on quite a tear, as follows:
- PhilStockWorld July Trade Review – Too Bearish or Just Right? (Part 1) – 42 Trade ideas, 39 winners (92%)
- PhilStockWorld July Trade Review – Too Bearish or Just Right? (Part 2) – 76 Trade Ideas, 55 winners (72%)
- PhilStockWorld August Trade Review – Riding the Rapids (Part 1) – 50 Trade Ideas, 42 winners (84%)
- PhilStockWorld August Trade Review – Riding the Rapids (Part 2) – 56 Trade Ideas, 44 winners (78%)
Can you benefit from having good ideas to trade from? That's for you to decide. We are an educational site, teaching you how to trade Stocks, Options and Futures. We teach you how to manage your portfolio, including a concentration on ways to fix positions that go against you and how to produce an income from the positions you already have. The fact that we're also pretty good at picking trades (and yes, we teach fundamental investing strategies) is just a nice bonus!
Optrader's Swing Trading Virtual Portfolio is updated daily for active traders and market timers using Optrader's exclusive system that stresses risk management with pre-defined entry and exit points. This is backed up by Optrader's daily chat section where he discusses the trades with members and exchanges ideas on new ones as they develop. Both Phil and Optrader are available most days to chat with Premium members live and Basic members can view many of the comments and also post comments at certain hours. Phil tracks different things at different times of the year. Phil often maintains a Buy List, filled with many stocks he considers good long-term values for a market bottom, with trade ideas associated with each one that are designed for less active trading, allowing for hedged entries to ride out the swings in the market while skipping the ulcers and collecting good monthly premiums and dividends. During daily chat sessions, Phil also puts up many new trade ideas and is always happy to design ones for companies members are interested in. For Premium members, Peter has an expertise in strangles and straddles, hedged trade ideas that work in almost any market.
Many of these trade ideas are sent to Premium and Members (at the Members request) via Email and can be picked up on most mobile devices. Basic members can subscribe to alerts for an additional fee as well, choosing either Oprtader or Phil's alerts.
