Mainly a swing trader. Don't usually day trade. I trade primarily 3XETF's and will hold them as long as I see a general uptrend. I dont usually trade TZA, FAZ or UVXY, unless its a no brainer. I will go to cash and sit in times of uncertainty.
Was a very active, successful trader. Serious injury with no insurance drained my savings. Got married. My incredibly smart wife suggested that I stop talking to the TV on how to trade and to use my knowledge instead to help others. So, here I am.
Learn charting, it works-period. But it takes time and practice, EVERY DAY. Stop looking for E Z answers. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary! And what I do here, I do for FREE. Remember that (or go pay some "genius.")
