My average holding period is between 15-30 months ideally I am looking for a 50% uplift, I have held BATS and SOCO for a 7 OR 8 years so it is not all fast money.
My personal favourite that I always recommend is the very simple strat book Zurich Axioms by Max Gunther ISDN 0-285-62703-1, I also reread The Intelligent Investor By Ben Graham and I like The Pocket Ivestor by Phillip Ryland. ISBN 1-86197-082-X. FK
