• For a long time, I was a buy and hold investor. My frustration was with buying a stock that was recommended by a service (such as TSI) and that had good fundamentals, but which would go down in price. I now use technical analysis to determine when to buy a stock and only buy when the stock appears poised to move up. I also use a trailing stop so that if a stock, for whatever reason, has a sudden drop in price, my loss is limited. Fundamental analysis is a good place to find stock ideas, but technical analysis will tell you when to buy and when to sell.
