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.
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.

Don't expect the market to behave exactly the same way twice. The market is an artist, not a computer. It has a repertoire of basic behavior patterns that it subtly modifies, combines and springs unexpectedly on its audience --- Wyckoff
