Had four mentors (S. Bigelow, H. Senters, C. Fous, and firstly, my father, B.E.S., best stockbroker ever) and studied relentlessly, finance: fundamentals, psychology, and technical: until the charts made sense: the aha! moment :)
Invest in stocks that have high earnings beat or miss and hold them for a short term to several months using call or put options. Also use covered calls to make income on my current holdings. I also invest in biotech stocks.
