Carol - seeking profit opportunities in both rising & falling markets, tho I prefer the bull side. Founder of a non-profit German Shepherd Rescue and VP of The Seminar Group. I trade using pocket pivots & O'Neil's CANSLIM methods.
I am a CFA level 2 cleared Financial Analyst at a major brokerage house. I perform deep fundamental and technical research in Equities, Futures and Bonds.
My philosophy in life: Everything is connected.
Can I make a living at this? Verdict still out. Now learning options, hopefully better for capital and profit protection. Plus, like the leverage it offers. Using short term Deep ITM Options now. Long term ATM too. A fan of AAL and GOOGL
I'm trying to be a swing trader. I've lost money in the past by holding on to losers. Lately I always cut losses below 5% and aim for 10%+ gains. I sometimes miss out on winners, but I'm in the black now and feel I'm making good progress.
