Tradetobefree vs Investtobefree
A lot of people ask us what the difference is between Tradetobefree and Investtobefree. Here is a recent email we received from one of our enthusiastic customers – Pierre:
“I used to subscribe to your Trade to be Free newsletter because I was persuaded that your methodology really covered the various angles and variables in a superior fashion compared to anything else I had come across.
Although I was not quite ready to begin investing at that time (and cancelled my subscription), I am now approaching the moment where I want to put my funds to work in the markets. So, my question is: Are you offering two different systems, or are they the same system under two different names? And if they are somewhat different, how?”
Here was my response to Pierre:
Great question, Pierre. Yes, both websites and methodologies have similar philosophical underpinnings. On both sites we are only looking for stocks that have strong, consistent earnings and sales growth and/or big earnings beats with rising estimates along with other key factors.
We only trade stocks with these characteristics. Some of the few characteristics that are proven to lead to market-stomping returns (at least over the next few weeks) over the past few decades.
As you know, Tradetobefree.com features these stocks in the newsletter only when the stock is near an ideal technical entry point. Either in a bullish chart pattern and/or breaking a downtrend within a longer-term, well defined uptrend. And we use technical analysis to pinpoint the entry and exit for the trade.
This involves you checking the stock each day and the latest chart on our site to see if a target entry point or exit point has been reached. Along with our other trading rules listed on the site and in our book.
With Investtobefree.com, we do not use technical analysis to pinpoint the entries and exits. We have the top 3 stocks each week with the aforementioned fundamental characteristics that are proven to lead to higher prices.
As long as they do not have a significant bearish technical pattern. Or another significant red flag in their financials, news flow, etc… And are trending higher.
So we get a list of the very best stocks and weed out the likely losers based on technical analysis. We then deliver the top 3 every Thursday in our newsletter – 3 Stocks to Wealth on Investtobefree.com.
You then just buy and hold these 3 stocks for the next five days with no follow-up analysis. You are done working on this for the week.
When you subscribe to Investtobefree.com, you just adjust your portfolio once per week if the list of top 3 stocks changes at all (many weeks the list stays the same).
With the Investtobefree service you always buy and sell on Friday. It takes just 15 minutes per week on average. Whereas Tradetobefree may take you a half hour of analysis and decision making per day.
It only takes about 15 minutes on one day per week and you do not need to use technical analysis. Consistency is the key to making a lot of money using any successful methodology. You need to consistently make trades for a long time and honestly most people have very busy lives. But 15 minutes on the same day per week is doable for virtually everyone. A half hour each day – not so much in many cases.
And most people do not fully comprehend technical analysis. So to use the Tradetobefree system is too complicated for them. And they neither have the time or inclination to learn.
So if you can be consistent every day and follow the methodology closely, you can probably do better with Tradetobefree.com. Otherwise, Investtobefree.com is much less time consuming and has been generating terrific returns for what little time you invest in it. And the back-tested returns are also very impressive.
Hope that explains the differences for everyone! Feel free to ask more questions or comment below
