I am not an emotional trader. but chart reader and trade stocks & options based on what I read. I enjoy trading based on technical's and buy at support and sell at resistance. I always set up stop loss below 1-2% of my support & Resistance.
First year of trading end in 2012 -- probably will be flat. But learning. Mostly a chart guy. 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.
