Chip, if you could only have one source of stock info., IBD would have to be
One of the problems in using it, is realizing how much good info. is in
there, and how it fits together. For example, using "Stocks In The News"
(those little mini-graphs) will tell you the sectors most in favor. The
general market page gives you the comparison of the 3 indexes WITH volume,
and A/D for each. It also gives you sector graphs not available anywhere
else, world markets, industry groups....yada, yada, yada.
The articles are invaluable...stocks like Cisco appeared several times
before they hit $20 in the new america and company news, and investors
corner is well-balanced, not too bearish or bullish.
In fact, the lack of bearishness is one of the most refreshing things about
IBD. If you read WSJ or Barrons, you always come away with more useless
worries than you started with.
Sheesh, I sound like an IBD salesman, don't I? Well, you asked ! <g>
