Buy and hold died. Follow the gurus cautiously. Some are blind. Buy dips. Buy momentum. Market is unknowable. Food always in demand. Energy too. Charts are like statistics: they can say whatever you want. Momentum + price action for swing trading.
I am an independent trader with over 25 years of experience working on the buy and sell-side. I have researched and invested in traditional and alternative asset classes and worked at Pensions Funds, International Banks and Dealers.
I use index timing to determine whether I should be long or short on index ETFs. I trade stocks, ETFs, leveraged ETFs, and SPY or equity options. Lives happily with two little boys and a stunning wife! Love StockTwits!
Trading triple leverage $TNA, $TZA, $UVXY, $XIV, $NUGT, $DUST. No options trading here. My posts are based on what I see on the charts. I am not suggesting to buy or sell. Trade at your own risk.
