I am a 42 yr old former IBD trader. Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. I am a smart ass but very sensitive. Go figure. Please don't follow me blindly. Avg yearly return rate the last 6 yrs: 51% including 2014.
Bottom up and top down. I like pocket pivots, breakouts and continuation patterns on market leaders -- IBD50 & CANSLIM stocks. Getting better is about reducing mistakes and becoming highly selective. I'm a chart junkie.
Value investing, spiked with a mix of speculative growth names, mainly in tech & biotech. Always trying to learn. Don't take me (or yourself) too seriously. And always do your own due diligence before investing.
Former prop trader, current hedge fund analyst, full time student of the markets. Technical, fundamental, global-macro. Comments reflect personal views and not those of any organization I am associated with
