Not long ago a Wall-Street-Hedge-Fund-Finance-MBA guy, now a momentum trader. Father, husband, mediocre soccer player, numbers geek with a lousy sense of humor. Trading success is all about good defense: "It's About How Much You Don't Lose"
I've managed a Prop trading desk. I have tought my trading philosophy and chart skills to some of the best day traders imo, I have refocused my attention to small and micro cap moves and look to make big hits in this arena.*Not Recommendations.
Expose yourself to quality setups and you can make money in any market. Be early to locate relative strength, then exit when things get heated. Shorts are also okay. Find weak stocks and position yourself for continuation.
