Virtual Portfolios

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

Is the US Dollar Nearing Bottom? Or Is It Different This Time?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

The U.S. Dollar ran into a perfect storm in 2020: a pandemic (Coronavirus), an easy Federal Reserve, and trillions of dollars in government stimulus.

The result has been a steep decline in the greenback.

Looking at today’s chart, however, suggests that the US Dollar may be nearing a bottom. That is if recent history proves true.

The Dollar is testing its 9-year bullish up-trend support at (1) and US Dollar bulls are disappearing. In fact, investors are the least bullish the US Dollars (20% bulls) since 2011 at (2). Notice that each ...

Twitter Says "Human Error" And "Spear-Phishing Attack" Responsible For Massive Bitcoin Hack

Courtesy of ZeroHedge

Twitter suffered from a major hack about two weeks ago and has now said that its staff was tricked by "spear-phishing", which is a targeted attack to trick people into simply handing out their passwords. 

Twitter staff were targeted through their phones, according to a new report from the BBC. The attacks then allowed hackers the ability to Tweet from celebrity Twitter accounts. Twitter has said it was "taking a hard look" at how it could improve its permissions and processes.

"The attack on July 15, 2020, targeted a small number of employees through a phone spear phishing attack. This attack relied on ...

Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia – The Branch COVIDIANS Are Still Burning Down the House

Courtesy of Lee Adler, WallStreetExaminer 

The numbers of new cases in some of the hardest hit COVID19 states have started to plateau, or even decline, over the past few days. A few pundits have noted it and concluded that it was a hopeful sign. 

Is it real or is something else going on? Like a restriction in the numbers of tests, or simply the inability to test enough, or are some people simply giving up on getting tested? Because as we all know from our dear leader, the less testing, the less...
