I've been playing in and out of the market over 5 years now. I have learned the hard way to make money. One thing I have learned is to be patient! Which is hard to do when you want to just be a day trader. Best advice would be not to trade on emotion
I stalk the weak like a greedy predator. I'll buy stocks from them when they are afraid. I execute like a hitman, selling the stock back to them at a higher price when they see the herd running the other way.
