Day 4: Going ColdTurkey on stock market speculating.

I mentioned on my previous blog that stock speculating gives me money (i.e. MERALCO), but quickly takes it away.

This is the first week where I reverted to my tried and tested buying and holding until I reach my TP, ignoring trends and just concentrating on financial statements, volume, low P/E and projected future earnings based from the news.

I disregarded the thought that a major correction is coming and that I might lose the opportunity to get in at a lower price. But experience taught me, that even if I make the mistake I made last
October 22, 2008 stock portfolio, I'll just be patient and wait, and continue to buy stocks based on the criteria I mentioned above, and everything will be all right.

Thus, I bought the following stocks last Wednesday August 19, 2009, and most of it did well.

Based on your experience, what strategy is better? Short term trade or the buy and hold strategy?
