I've been doing quite well since I sat myself down in May and keyed in a few adjustments to my trading strategies. My strategy has been to take profits out of the market as they come, and the frequency with which I've had to do that since adjusting my strategies has been a pleasant surprise indeed.

To this end, let's review five market strategies that are working well despite world tensions, interest rates and general malaise. Hopefully these ideas will help you rediscover your profitability in this difficult environment.
