Learn charting, it works-period. But it takes time and practice, EVERY DAY. Stop looking for E.Z. answers. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary! And what I do here, I do for FREE. Remember that (or go pay some "genius.")
Expose yourself to quality setups and you can make money in any market. Be early to locate relative strength, then exit when things get heated. Shorts are also okay. Find weak stocks and position yourself for continuation.
Pro. use technical analysis to look for stocks w/ short-term price momentum. Not interested in fundamental or intrinsic value of stocks, but rather in their trends and patterns.
