sider: You put in a limit buy order at a price you would be happy with. If it doesn't get down to that, you lose nothing. If it does and goes back up, like today, you are a big winner. I do it all the time.
On my ES stock I have a 36% gain in less than a month.
CSCO I bought for $18.94 day before yesterday 1.47% gain in 2 days..
I almost never buy at market price. But I do a lot of my own research too.Tempted to add to my TCAP, but just hasn't hit my number. Have a 24.51% gain plus dividends in 7 months.
I've been in and out of KOG several times. In at $7.09, out in the mid $9.00's range, back in now at $8.12. Holding for a while longer. Should be a good EOY return, plus I pocket some nice $$$$$ along the way.
