The NetPicks Stock & Option Advisory is designed to pursue aggressive returns whether you trade stocks, options, or both. We focus on a group of stocks that historically have proven to be volatile, trending, liquid and predictable using our trading system. Our goal is to pursue highly profitable objectives in the short term with holding periods typically ranging from one day to two weeks. The advisory is published each evening and morning before the trading day.

See what a current subscriber has to say:

Steven P., McKinney, Texas says: I have used the service periodically over the last two years and would not trade a day without reading the insightful commentary and stock pick recommendations. Each night I select the stocks I want to invest in based on comments made in the Evening Update. If it calls for a down day, I focus on puts.... Up days, calls.

Once I have made my selections, I compare to the recommendations of Netpicks, and then I finalize my list. I often don't understand why some of the netpick stocks were chosen (I think y'all have inside info or a magic ball), and much to my regret I don't participate in many of them. However, the ones I can confirm against my charts normally make for great trades! But again, it is the comments in the commentary I cannot live without. In fact, I found the comments so useful I signed up for the chat room to get even more insight throughout the day. Keep up the great work!


Evening Update - (Published 7:30pm CST) This is the most important update of the day, basically the heart of the advisory. Here you will find a complete recap of the trading day, after-the-close news and developments, discussion of the critical trading components for the next day as well as an analysis of where the best opportunities might be. Next, you will have a complete review of each recommendation that our Advisory is trading including updated pricing and updated sell signals, so you know when we are looking to take our profits.

From there, we move into our New Recommendations. Virtually every night we pinpoint what we have determined to be the best trading opportunities for the next trading day along with specific entry and exit parameters, as well as specific recommendations on which option we would suggest if you choose to trade options. We'll also discuss why we are making the recommendation so you understand the logic behind the trade and our trading system.

Next we have our Aggressive trades - these are the stocks that are exploding to the upside or plunging to the downside, and we look to exploit those moves in some of the most dynamic stocks on the market. Finally, we have our Internet stocks section - this is where we highlight all of our trades in the internet group including business-to-consumer, business-to-business, and infrastructure. This group of stocks is ideal for short-term trading with our strategies.

The sections in the Evening Update:

* Market Commentary

* New Recommendations & Aggressive Trades

* Portfolio Review

* Daytrade Scalp Review

* Internet Stock Trading

Eric Christensen, Stuart, FL says: I have been subscribing to Netpicks option advisory service for quite some time now and have learned a great deal from trading the netpick system. I have been trading since 1992 starting in futures and options on futures, almost lost the account and traded it back and closed it.

I then proceeded to get sucked in by all the gimmicky systems that are out there, such as Wade Cook, or any get rich quick type hype. So with stocks and options, I would have good months and awful months slowly bleeding the account. I then came across Netpick's service through a friend that trades with me in a chat room and I signed on for a 2 week free trial.

I was hooked! You have the best service anywhere, and look forward to our continued success together!

Morning Update - This update is published at our website by 8:30am CST and includes any breaking news from overnight and international markets, breaking news before the open, news or changes to any trades along with the very latest upgrades and downgrades released that morning from the leading brokerages and analysts. An analysis of the market trend and projections for the OEX index is provided as well. Also included are our DayTrade Scalps, which are designed to be shorter-term same-day or two-day trades. These are ideal for the active trader.

* Market Commentary

* New DayTrade Scalp Trades

* Analyst Upgrades & Downgrades

* Momentum Trades for Active Daytraders

Weekly StockSelector Portfolios - The StockSelector Portfolios are designed to take advantage of longer term market swings - both long and short) - while doing this with very few trades per year. This is an ideal actively traded long-term investing strategy.

The weekly StockSelector provides you with an excellent strategy that is designed to take advantage of the large swings in the market without having to trade frequently. We all know that simple buy and hold is virtually dead. Even stocks that went up substantially in 2001 (yes, there were some!) had periods of months when they headed south. The StockSelector is designed to be either out on the sidelines in cash during those times, or if you are able to short (non-retirement type accounts) you can instead go short and profit off of the decline as readily as the rise in price. When the stock turns back to the upside, we simply reverse and go back into a "buy." That almost always beats simple buy and hold and protects from massive drawdowns. Just imagine holding a stock like PMC Sierra/PMCS which declined from peak to bottom over 90% in 2001. At the same time it had rallies that advanced over 60% on two occassions during 2001. So it's clear with 90% drops we cannot just buy and hold. But, even in a bear market there were two gainers of over 60% on the long/buy side. The solution is to actively long-term trade. What does that mean?

It means trading the longer and larger swings. We average about six trades per year per stock. One every two months or so. Of course, some trades could go several months and others might only last a couple of weeks but on average the trades will last a couple months. The trades are updated once per week in our Sunday Evening Update. Probably takes 15 minutes per week once you learn the methodology to update your stops and entries. After that we let the market do the work.

The weekly NetPicks StockSelector is included as another free bonus with your subscription. Now you can trade the swings in longer timeframes as well.

As you can see, we have designed this advisory to be a one-stop system for anyone who is interested in trading in the short-term with an aggressive outlook. We trade from the long/calls and short/puts side of the market and design our system to quickly take advantage of the hottest areas to trade. You'll notice we spend considerable time moving between sectors and looking for the best buying and selling opportunities within the most active group of stocks.

If you have a busy schedule you'll find our organized and structured timeframes ideal for enhancing your trading. Even if you can access the internet in the evening only, you will be able to review our critical Evening Update as it publishes. Plus, you'll be able to review the Morning Update in just a few minutes. You have all the information that you will need to make your trading decisions, and in minutes rather than hours of searching, scanning and analyzing.

We offer a Free Two Week Trial so you have every opportunity to determine the success of our trading system. The Free Trial page also has links to two recent issues so you can see what you'll be receiving during your free trial.

S&P E-Mini Futures - Trading System

NetPicks DayTrader Service

How The Service Works

Trade Several Times per Day with NO Overnight Exposure!

The NetPicks DayTrader service stands out from many of the other services because it eliminates the overwhelming number of trades and focuses exclusively on daytrading the S&P500 with OEX options (or the SPY sector stock if you choose) and the Nasdaq 100 tracking stock - the "QQQ".

We have now added trades on two high-volume stocks that trade with market momentum for even more opportunity. You go completely flat and in cash each evening. No worries about what happens overnight. Forget about buy and hold in a bear market. You can profit in either market direction and sleep well!

You receive the set-ups in two ways - via e-mail address of your choice and through the NetPicks DayTrader Communicator for instant notification on your computer.

All trades are managed from entry, to profit objectives, to final stops.

The NetPicks DayTrader offers all of this - exact entries and exits on the set-ups we're following. Focused trading that controls the anxiety, which means never feeling overwhelmed tracking too many stocks or indexes intraday. Exit at the end of the day and rest easy about what might happen overnight and any gap in the morning. Trade stock both long and short (QQQ can be shorted on the downtick!) or options with the QQQ or the OEX (or both.) Trade highly liquid momentum stocks for additional opportunities.

With the release of our new communicator software, the NetPicks DayTrader Communicator, we now have the ability to interact more with you, our DayTrader subscribers. In addition, this software allows us to offer a trading service that requires quick delivery of multiple messages. This capability along with continual requests for a more specific trading system for the S&P emini futures have prompted us to roll out a new methodology.

So far the trading results themselves have been very satisfying. Below you will see a summary since inception.

Let's discuss the trading strategy itself. This method is designed to be in the market most times. As you know, it's quite easy to trade long or short when using the S&P emini futures, thanks to the volumes now traded and the fact that shorting does not require downticks. Bid/ask spreads tend to be the narrowest 0.25 points, making market orders very viable and limit orders also effective.

The system will assume we're trading two contracts. One will be sold at an 3.50 point target (revised from 4.0 points on 8/7/02), the second trailed until it reverses. We also use a fixed target of 8 points for the second Position for those who prefer that exit instead of trailing the position out to a reversal which at times could risk some of your gains for the opportunity at catching the larger moves.

Of course, you can trade more contracts - think of it as half the trade is sold at the 3.50 point target, the other half sold on the reverse or the 8 points fixed. Nothing says you cannot sell everything at 3.50 points, or none. The system itself will assume half out at 3.50 points, half out at the trailer. We also track the 8 point fixed results for those trying to compare the best exit strategy for themselves. Sometimes you'll be well ahead and trading multiple contracts; that gives you the ability to lock in more profits along the way than the system. Use your discretion if you like or just follow the system.

When a trade is getting close to a reversal, we will message you. That is the time we get ready to close out the existing trade direction and reverse in the opposite. The question is going to be, "Market order or limit order?" That's an area where you will use your discretion. Market orders will have a bit more slippage at times and most times you'll get a reasonable retracement. Perhaps consider doing half the trade at market, and the second half at a limit order trying to get a better fill. Even if you go all market you should be fine minus some modest slippage. This is an area where some experience will tell you how best to handle it.

If you trade with a broker who links directly to the exchange, your emini trades should be completed in just a few seconds and many times nearly instantaneously. This makes market orders very viable given the speed of execution and the minimal bid/ask spread.

The methodology itself is designed to catch the larger swings intraday on the S&P. We take a quicker profit on half and try to hold the balance for the bigger moves - including holding overnight. This method will hold overnight and looks to take advantage of gaps in our favor. Traders can make their own decisions on this. You can always exit end-of-day and look to re-enter the next trading day if you want to avoid overnight holds.

http://www.trading-system.net/r/netpicks_daytrader_free/

Let's set a few items straight from the outset. This method is not perfect. This method will lose money on certain trades. This method could have a streak of losing trades. Nothing new there, right? That is the nature of trading. Nothing is going to generate consistent profits without having to contend with losing trades and losing streaks.

Some trades will totally backfire on us, as will the reversal. But review our record. You can see cases where there were losses, and even multiple losses. Then look at the bottom-line numbers, the winners, the win streaks and some of the very favorable gaps that went our way. For all the times one goes against us, there are more that go our way. And that is the key.

Don't trade this method - or any method, for that matter - unless you are comfortable with the fact that losing trades are also what make up a winning overall trading strategy.
