Robert Alexander, better known as ‘Alex’ in trading forums, has been a full time trader for over a decade. Focusing on breakouts and volume, developing a unique view of charting that has served him extremely well.
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 trade off of support, breakout patterns, catalysts, and momentum. I will either scalp, scale in intra-day, or will build a position for days anticipating a big move. Love volume. Love under $20 stocks.
West coast swing/position investor with a long bias. Clueless8 disciple. 50/50 fund/tech analysis. Love momos,solving puzzles,finding patterns. My charts are simple but very effective. Always do your DD. I ain't your financial advisor :-)
