Hot Stocks To Buy

Hot stocks to buy for individual traders and investors are those that typically show up on most active lists, top percentage gainers lists, etc.

These are also stocks that bring along excitement! Since emotions are a major part of trading and excitement is a strong emotion, the attraction to hot stocks to buy for many becomes even greater.

Should you jump on the bandwagon though? After all, if a stock is on many lists across the internet attracting attention, it's obviously already made it's potential move. To make things more difficult though, this is not always the case!

There are many momentum traders who specifically seek out individual stocks that are making new highs, breaking out of a trading range, have a larger than normal percentage gain, and various other potential signals which meet their requirements for stock selection.

In the end, whether or not to seek out hot stocks to buy will have to be a decision each of us makes on our own. If you decide this is the way to go for you and your trading plan, go for it. Be sure to do some testing/trading simulation first, to see if this type of trading suits you.

I've listed some examples of where to find these types of stocks below. This is not a complete list, nor will these suit everyone's needs, but it can be a good starting point to build upon.

Tip: Always be prepared for one of these types of stocks to be at or near an end to it's current trend and a potential reversal. Often hype and volatilty becomes increased as a reversal begins. Be prepared by having a stop loss method in place.
