Trend follower, portfolio manager, market technician. Former sales trader to hedge funds/institutions, research analyst, prop trader, buy-side head of desk. Only took 25 years to find what works for me. Always learning.
â€œChartjunk refers to all visual elements in charts and graphs that are not necessary to comprehend the information represented on the graph, or that distract the viewer from this information.â€œ as defined by Wikipedia and Edward R. Tufte
I first started trend following 18 years ago. I wanted to know who was succeeding and what they were doing. My broker told me the most successful client of his company was a dentist who trend followed.
I'm a trader who avoids the noise, manages risk, using weekly bars. I offer no predictions, only serious long term trades. What else is there?
A careful examination of my list of losing and winning trades tells the complete story.
