I'm learning to trade technicals when an emphasis on momentum/news plays, breakouts and reversals. I try to keep an eye on market psychology at critical junctures on charts. I don't advise you do anything based on my opinions expressed herein.
I'm going to warn you right from the get go - I have NO earthly idea what I'm doing. None. No, really. Quit my day job and been F/T trading since June 2013. Have more money than I started with. Substantially more. Better lucky than good? Guess so.
