I play technical momentum swing plays and break outs with options 99% of the time. I always look for a great short squeeze. I'm NOT smarter than you. Inside joke only. Model S owner. Model X on order. Both paid for by TSLA calls from $40 and higher.
I'm a day trader since 1999.
Seen some good times and bad ones!
Most important is the charts set-up and the float. The momentum is my ally.
Nothing beats the experience and an exercised brain. WOW ... wish only well....
