I first started trend following 18 years ago. I wanted to know who was succeeding and what they were doing. My broker told me the most successful client of his company was a dentist who trend followed.

I day trade for a living. I live with my adopted 16 year old son.
I like 1 or 2 day trades on set ups that are pretty clear. When the short term chart stops working I take profits.
I love the stock market and I look forward to it daily.
I don't buy into any one philosophy in trading equities: CANSLIM, Darvas, Peter Lynch, et al. All have good clues. Sewing them together is the key ~ I could be wrong...but I don't think so. (PS: I do not have cable and do not watch CNBC/FOX Business)
