Been investing for about 25 years. Took a break in 2000, lost my ass....lool...got back in about 2005 and now trading for the pullback. More mutual funds and defensive stocks.
Update 10/20/14: Looking for bottom on conformation. Buying on dips.
The usual. I trade nickels for dimes, sometimes.
I find bottoms and buy with no doubts. I sell early and book my gains.
Author of Introduction To Lines Of Force, 56 pages of dense text and illustrations. You should read it. Seriously.
