CHICAGO, Dec. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tactical Trader, a new alert service, is now being launched by Zacks Investment Research. It's designed to take advantage of market swings and "hidden bull" opportunities that few investors can detect in time to profit.


Guided by the firm's global markets expert Kevin Cook, it seeks to anticipate institutional portfolio managers, taking advantage of opportunities before they move in their money.

In addition, it tracks events that often stir up investor fears or hopes, driving prices down or up without good reason. Emotions like these lead to temporary market swings. "While other investors are acting irrationally," Cook explains, "that's when we can make most of our money."  

The service goes long and short with stocks, ETFs, and option moves that depend on prompt action and Zacks' earnings-based screening techniques.

Notably, Cook has used these tactics to correctly call and exploit six market swings from August 1 through October 5, 2011, leading his readers to substantial gains.
