I am a 42 yr old former IBD trader. Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. I am a smart ass but very sensitive. Go figure. Please don't follow me blindly. Avg yearly return rate the last 6 yrs: 51% including 2014.
Due diligence important also instincts. Don't blindly follow anyone, especially "experts". I read and use chart and volume study, trends, weighing risk tolerance. Mistakes can be great teachers. Disclaimer: For entertainment only.
