Don't be offended if I short or long an opposing position than you. I'm really just .008455% of the mass. Don't take ST too seriously, no one else is really taking you seriously anyways. Enjoy what you do and keep progressing at it. Good luck.
It's a mistake to blindly follow anyone, including "experts" and media. I've been too greedy and too fearful. Learning candlesticks, watching RSI. Mistakes can be great teachers. Disclaimer: My musings are ideas, not investment advice.
I started trading only last year but i took stock trading courses as well as spend over 13 hours a day researching trends and companies financials, charts, etc. Trading stocks is most addictive yet rewarding job i have ever done!
I'm going to warn you right from the get go - I have NO earthly idea what I'm doing. None. No, really. Quit my day job and been F/T trading since June 2013. Have more money than I started with. Substantially more. Better lucky than good? Guess so.
