I'm a trader who avoids the noise, manages risk, using weekly bars. I offer no predictions, only serious long term trades. What else is there?
A careful examination of my list of losing and winning trades tells the complete story.
I am breaking all the diversification rules right now by keeping almost 90% of my money in AIG. I used to hold ARR or AGNC, but I have switched to AIG in Sept 2012.
Portfolio contents at 12/31/2013
AIG (92%) BAC(4%) BRK.B(2%), AGNC (2%) ARR(1.5%)
I manage risk. A funny thing has happened along my journey: I don't care when I'm wrong anymore.. I simply bail as fast as possible. Controlled, selective and dynamic AGGRESSION is my key to $$$! Please know I DROP LOSING positions IMMEDIATELY.
Pro. use technical analysis to look for stocks w/ short-term price momentum. Not interested in fundamental or intrinsic value of stocks, but rather in their trends and patterns.
