I trade off of support, breakout patterns, catalysts, and momentum. I will either scalp, scale in intra-day, or will build a position for days anticipating a big move. Love volume. Love under $20 stocks.
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.
Value investor turned technical trader: I follow momentum along support/resistance lines and try to leverage gains through options, mostly weeklies. Keep a sensible allocation of money in metals, mostly modern Chinese coins. Am allergic to debt.
