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.
I've been trading for about 12 years. I mostly trade pullbacks and enter the trade at the reversal with a trendline breakout. I also trade flatline breakouts, and triangles are another favorite! I prefer $2-10 stocks.
Rule-based discretionary trader w 15 years experience. Love your R-multiple, use worst-case scenario stops, and only buy enough so you still sleep at night. "If the Big Boys want it then I want it." If you watch prices all day then you own too much.
