A private investor, with a focus on volatility, market sentiment, technical analysis, and ETFs. I author the VIX and More blog, a newsletter, and am one the founders of Expiring Monthly: The Options Traders Journal.
Rule-based discretionary trader w 15 years experience. Love your R-multiple, use worst-case scenario stops, and only buy enough so you still sleep at night. "If the Big Boys want it then I want it." If you watch prices all day then you own too much.
Pro. use technical analysis to look for stocks w/ short-term price momentum. Not interested in fundamental or intrinsic value of stocks, but rather in their trends and patterns.
