Former IBD trader. Not interested in their IBD ratings (all lagging). Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. Please don't follow me blindly. Post-rhinoplasty picture coming soon!
Bottom up and top down. I like pocket pivots, breakouts and continuation patterns on market leaders -- IBD50 & CANSLIM names. Getting better is about reducing mistakes and becoming highly selective with trades. Selling properly is the hard part.
Do you know why you are not a good consistant trader? Why you feel anxiety, fear, chase stocks? I do. It's in your head. Know what makes you do what you do and then you can start trading.
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 financial markets. Technicals, fundamentals, macro... I seek to understand it all. Comments reflect personal views and not those of any organization I am associated with
