I'm a Big Gain Hunter. I go for pure momentum. I target powerful breakouts. I've opened up my trade journal to show how I do it. It explains my entries. My wins, my losses.
Education of a Speculator:
trend follower (mainly monthly entries/exits)...hunt big trends...mma, working out...best advice i've gleaned..."an opinion is not a position; a position is not an opinion", @peterlbrandt (5/3/11 in a blog post)
Swing/position trader. Co-organizer of the Orange County Stocktwits Meetup group. Bought my first stock at age 19 (2008) and had no idea what I was doing. Studied the markets since then and began trading successfully since 2012.
Veteran trader, CIO of Waverly Advisors, and author of The Art and Science of Technical Analysis (2012). Perspectives on financial markets, the process of learning to trade, risk, peak performance, and life.
Trend trader, mostly options. Gainfully Unemployed. A friend to cats, some dogs & lover of all things 2 wheeled. Avoider of all noise and "gurus". Left handed. Trade with a plan, trade with a system...or plan on giving your money to those that do.
