Canslim style, You only learn thru experience(14 years). Mkt is like poker/chess. Know the hand your dealt and manage risk accordingly. I use ST to talk to myself and journal. Id like to also help along the way if you can follow my nonsense! :)
I am a systems, rules based, long term trader & teacher. I go out of my way to avoid noise, while managing risk. I view the market via WEEKLY bars. A careful examination of my list of losing and winning trades tells the complete story.
Shut out the "noise". Do your own research. Verify your sources. Determine your strategy. Execute/adjust with acute discipline.
Never let emotion confuse the facts.
Leave fear, hope & greed for the sheep & the wolves.
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.
