Been in the IT field for a decade and now trying my hand at day trading. I use technical indicators and watch for emotional sell offs for day trading opportunities. Normally watch a handful of stocks at a time.
Was a very active, successful trader. Serious injury with no insurance drained my savings. Got married. My incredibly smart wife suggested that I stop talking to the TV on how to trade and to use my knowledge instead to help others. So, here I am.
I only buy stocks that are ready to potentially move soon with tight Stop. I will take small loss quickly when it return back under the trend line or breakout point. http://treenhome.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-stock-trading-is-simple.html
