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.
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).
