The 5 Hardest Stocks To Trade…EVER!

I was sitting with some traders the other day, doing that standard thing standard traders do, taking about trading.  The subject came up about tough stocks to trade. Not hyper-thin biotechs or Ukrainian ADR’s, but normative, mainstream stocks that for some reason have been our personal bête noire to trade.

Five stocks popped into my head.

1.  Intercontinental Exchange ($ICE)

2.  ProShares UltraShortFinancials ($SKF)

3.  Wynn Resorts Limited ($WYNN)

4.  Potash Corporation ($POT)

5.  Walter Energy ($WLT)

For some reason over the years, these are stocks that I have constantly had trouble trading successfully.  So much so that not unlike a beaten dog, even if I see that they have good looking charts, I tend to shy away from them.

What stocks stick out in your mind as troublesome to trade?
