I like to find undervalued turnaround stories that are still in the 1st or 2nd inning. I listen to the conference calls, read the quarterly earnings, and sift through the numbers (I value both fundies and technicals, as well).
I trade with zero emotion, just pure cold calculating risk reward analysis.
I'm strictly a technical trader and will play anything from swing trades, to position trades, to momentum trades, depending on the phase of the market/business cycle.
Can I make a living at this? Verdict still out. Now learning options, hopefully better for capital and profit protection. Plus, like the leverage it offers. Using short term Deep ITM Options now. Long term ATM too. A fan of AAL and GOOGL
