Today, I want to talk with you about investment horizons. They’re the time frames you’re planning on having your money invested in a particular stock (or other instrument). And knowing your investment horizons is incredibly important.
You see, investment horizons change all the time.
Time plays a major factor in your overall horizon. The more time you have, the more risk you can take on with equities and the more potential gains you can see. The less time you have, the more you want to focus on “safer” assets like income stocks and fixed income like bonds.
The particular stock you’re trading plays an important role also. If you’re investing in a blue-chip company, your horizon might be decades away. But if you’re investing in a volatile asset, your horizon could be days, hours, or even mere minutes away.
Knowing your horizons will make you a better investor. You’ll hold onto more gains. You’ll accumulate fewer losses. You’ll have a solid savings account to retire on when the time comes.
But most people only really think about long-term and short-term horizons. They’re either investing for the long haul or they’re day trading.
But there’s a very profitable middle ground in between the gut-wrenching swings of day trading and the sometimes-boring world of long-term investing.
You can think of it as “medium-term” investing and trading. But it’s got another name on Wall Street, and that’s how I’ll refer to it today...
The Wild, Wonderful World of Swing Trading
Long-term investors buy a stock and hold onto it for decades — sometimes even longer. Warren Buffett falls into this category. He’s even been quoted as saying his favorite investment time frame is “forever.”
You can make massive profits by implementing this kind of strategy. Buffett’s made billions in the last three decades using it. And you don’t have to be a millionaire to make those massive profits, either.
In fact, I co-run an investment service here at Angel Publishing called The Wealth Advisory. We implement a mostly long-term holding period on our stocks. And our subscribers have been raking in market-beating returns for over a decade thanks to it.
But as impressive as those gains can be, long-term investing lacks some of the sexiness of shorter-term trades. It’s great to talk about getting a 1,000% gain on a stock you’ve owned for 20 years. But it’s a lot more fun to brag about that triple-bagger you scored overnight last week.
And that’s why a lot of people get involved in short-term investing, or day trading. It’s exciting, to say the least. Millions can be made in mere hours, even seconds.
But millions can be lost just as quickly. And I’ll be honest; it’s not for me. I munch on enough Tums® already without throwing in the acid-inducing volatility of day trading, too.
It’s not for everybody. It’s not really for many people.
Lots of folks I’ve known personally have lost massive amounts trying to master day trading. Sure, they bagged some impressive gains that make great happy hour conversation. But they’re back working at their old jobs now. So there obviously weren’t many of those wins.
But, like I said, there’s a middle ground between those two extremes. It’s called swing trading, and it’s like a combination of the best of both worlds.
Gut-Busting Gains Without Gut-Wrenching Fear
You see, swing trading is a medium-term strategy. Your holding period could be as long as a couple years, or it could be as short as a couple weeks.
You get the benefits of short-term momentum and the benefits of longer-term horizons to smooth out the volatility.
You don’t have to worry as much about headlines as when you’re day trading. But you can bet more on economic trends than when you’re investing for the long term.
It’s really brilliant. You get some of the benefits of both strategies: longer horizons to balloon growth and short-term swings to really boost those profits.
But it’s not as easy as it may seem...
Sure, you don’t have to be quite as vigilant as when you’re day trading. But you also can’t be quite as complacent as when you’re in it for the long term.
You’ve got to keep an eye on technical indicators like relative strength, Bollinger bands, moving averages, and stochastic oscillators. You’ve got to be watching charts and the news. Not every waking minute, but pretty close.
And you’ve got to be ready to buy and sell at a moment’s notice to lock in your gains and get the best starting position.
And that’s why it’s really helpful to have an assistant when you’re swing trading. The absolute best assistant you can have for analyzing that much data on a daily basis is a machine.

Your Very Own Robo-Trader
And that’s exactly what my colleague, Briton Ryle, has been working on for the past few years. He’s always been interested in swing trading. And he’s had some great success on his own. But tracking all those thousands of potential investments is just too much work for any human — even one as impressive as Brit.
So he got together with our chief technology officer, and they started working on a program that could do exactly what Brit was doing, but with every investment on the planet.
After laying the groundwork, our CTO brought in the brilliant team of programmers we’ve assembled here and got to work building a machine and programming it with algorithms and equations that would sort out the buying opportunities from the trash and give exact dates and times to buy and sell.
And let me tell you, what they came up with is jaw-droppingly accurate. It’s almost scary how good this thing is. I mean, I spent most of my adult life learning how to be a successful investor. These techies built one in a couple of years.
(Thank God it can’t write articles, or I might be reading the Help Wanted instead of writing to you.)
Anyway, we’ve been testing this machine for the past year or so now, and it’s uncanny in its ability to pick medium-term investments that go on to be solid winners.
It’s so good that Brit refuses to keep it an in-house tool. He’s insisting we share it. But this tool is so powerful that we can only share it with a limited number of people, or we risk manipulating the market.
So Brit’s decided to share everything with a privileged few readers in the coming months. He’ll be sending you an email sometime in the next two weeks with all the details on how you can sign up to be one of the first — and few — to learn about this incredible profit-making opportunity.
This is literally the kind of technology only hedge funds with billions under management, investment banks like Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs, and institutional investors like the Fidelities and Vanguards of the world have.
But thanks to Brit’s diligence and tenacity, you can join that list now, too.
Just keep your eyes peeled for Brit’s email. There are a limited number of slots available. And they’re sure to fill up very quickly.
Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this one.
