Buy and hold died. Follow the gurus cautiously. Some are blind. Buy dips. Buy momentum. Market is unknowable. Food always in demand. Energy too. Charts are like statistics: they can say whatever you want. Momentum + price action for swing trading.
Near the end of my first year as a trader. I've made countless mistakes, but learned from each one. Thankful to many of the traders on this site who have accelerated my market education.
