Why Bio-Pharma Stocks are Superior to Trade

Why Bio-Pharma Stocks are Superior to Trade

In the market, there are tons of niches to pick from. You can be a value investor, an options trader, a pump and dump player, etc.. but in my eyes, nothing is comparable to the biotech market. Let me start off by telling you a little about myself, my name is Brett Sifling, and I am a 17-year-old bio-tech pharmaceutical’s stock trader. I run my own subscription based website and have developed a reputable track record tweeting my trades in real-time while netting over 400% in 2012. These gains were mostly captured by swing trading small-cap bio-pharma companies, which confirms to me why the biotech niche is superior to anything else.


As you have probably heard before, 90% of day-traders and investors lose money. Now, you must be thinking that the odds are stacked against beginners and part-time traders, but bio-techs contradict that case. As a full-time student I started off trading pump and dumps when I was 15, and quickly lost interest as the niche is only for full-time traders. I began to look for something I could trade while I was in school. I was looking for something affordable, practical, predictable, and could easily generate outrageous returns by multiplying my small account. It sounds too good to be true, but my industry contains all of these qualities.


While the common adult is at work, I am at school, and the first thing that popped into my head was the strategy of swing trading. Swing trading is a style of trading that attempts to capture gains in a stock within one to four days (sometimes longer). Swing traders use technical analysis to look for stocks with short-term price momentum. These traders aren’t as interested in the fundamental or intrinsic value of stocks, but rather in their price trends and patterns.


The most common pattern or trend in the bio-tech market is the “run up” trade. Since most of the small cap traders tend to be attracted to the high risk/high reward binary catalyst events, these “run up” trades offer easy to capture gains if you understand how to play them. In my next article I will detail one of the many unique strategies I use and how you can use it to profit yourself whether you are at work, busy with the kids, or anything else that you might be doing. The bio-tech market is the place to be no matter if you are a full or part-time trader.
