If I had bought TQQQ on Day 1 of the QQQ short term up-trend, I would have beaten almost all stocks. I have demonstrated this strategy many times. The key is to buy TQQQ on Day 1 even though the new up-trend is most suspect. I have also written that a change in the short term trend trend is most reliable after it reaches Day 5. The key to this strategy is to slowly accumulate the triple leveraged ETF. I hope some of my readers have done so. The GMI remains Green. The longer term trend is still down, however.
