- Market opportunities happen in real time; and people who tweet about them can deliver the information faster than the news media can. Stocks are constantly changing price and moving, and tweets of comments and opinions act as timely alerts. Expert traders are often humorous and bring fun into what may be a loooong day watching stocks for the right trades. Boredom goes down, while profits go up.
Are you convinced you need to be following a trader now? If so, then out of the hundreds of thousands of traders out there in the Twitterverse, who should you follow? Before I tell you my top 10 traders to watch on Twitter, here are some of the criteria for picking them:
- Follow a trader with more than 1,000 followers and who posts actionable stock-alert tweets. Look at his/her last tweet and make sure it was posted within the hour to ensure he/she tweets regularly and often. Watch the stock that was tweeted and see where the trader entered and exited. Over time you will see the power of following a precise, financially savvy expert.
