Technology is almost always a hotbed for small companies that can become big ones. For every one that makes it, probably 10 fall by the wayside. But that doesn't stop the buyers from buying.
If you are trading the charts and working your trades properly, you too can participate in the quest to double your money. The safe way to do it is to slowly build a position in stocks that have long-term potential while nipping profits on partial sells into strength as you wait. Each time the stock retraces, you put some more shares back on, and each time the stock surges you sell a little. Essentially, you work around a core position while you build that core position larger over time. In the meantime, you put money in your pocket so that if the stock doesn't realize the large gains you are after, you don't end up losing your seed capital.
To work a trade in this way, you need to find a small- or micro-cap stock that has significant long-term potential. And then you need to find a way to participate without undue risk. One such stock might be the LGL Group (LGL), which designs, manufactures, and markets custom-designed engineered electronic components that are used primarily to control the frequency or timing of signals in electronic circuits. It has moved back to profitability and LGL's charts are brimming with possibilities.
