Mostly a position trader . My posts are NOT stock recommendations.
I take positions where I see a 5-10 point gain in the near term. I move quickly and cut losses fast. 7% loss is general rule. 25% gain is general target. Contrarian sometimes-Trender sometimes. Take what the market gives. Always learning.
