Best and worst trades - December 2017

Markets continue to rally higher and that is favorable for our method. What we do is ride the moves until there are Sell signals. No prediction is needed to invest profitably. Nobody knows how long a market or stock will keep going up, as is demonstrated once again by the recent rallies.

In November Overstock.com OSTK was our best performer. This month Nektar Therapeutics NKTR has jumped into the lead. The Buy signal was given on 1st September when NKTR could be picked up at $21.13. It now trades at $57.05 for a 170% gain in 76 days.
Ethereum ETHUSD is into second place with a 160% gain in 41 days. Crypto-currencies have been hot and reversal levels do not miss such moves. Valhi VHI comes third with a 139% gain in 64 days. Those moves are not finished, stocks are held until their next Sell signal (or Buy signal for a short position).

The current worst trades are short ACOR (-27.8%), followed by long CXRX (-17.8%) and short TMST (-10.3%). Always trying to keep losses small.
