A week ago CNBC wrote about a trader who made above $2 million in 28 minutes. It was a news story concerning Altera and Intel. According to The Wall Street Journal Intel wanted to buy Altera. More about the story: http://www.cnbc.com/id/102545580
We refer to the above news for other reason. The investor earned that much money only because he was able to pick the move fast enough. Some people think that he used a special programmed bot to inform him about valuable tweets – sounds complicated but maybe it is true.
Now take a look at our tweet http://stocktwits.com/message/34653262#34653262 we posted the move 10 minutes after the news tweet was revealed. But if you had our market overview on http://www.trendsinvesting.com/stock-market-today you would have seen the beginning of the move the very moment it appeared and basically you could have bought the stock right away.
All of this is of course theory. But it shows that you do not need any bots or luck for that matter, you just need to look for interesting moves or rather you can find them by checking our trends from time to time.
