I am one those rare dying breeds called the retail investor. Have a reg. job that I enjoy very much. Long term investor w/ 6 mo--1 yr. horizion. Use IBD as a starting point and guide and other resources.
Market technician, analyst and trader with over 25 years experience in global equity, forex and futures markets. Former sales trader to hedge funds/institutions, research analyst, prop trader, buy-side head of desk. Grass looks greener here.
Canslim style, You only learn thru experience. Mkt is like poker/chess. Know the hand your dealt and manage risk accordingly. Try to think a few moves ahead, not like a pawn. Everyday in mkt doesn't matter. Know which ones do. 99% daytraders lose
Investing part-time will help lead to wealth accumulation and financial freedom. That's why I do it and aspire to help others do the same. I follow the CAN SLIM methodology.
