The market is what you make of it. Trade what you know. Recognize patterns, follow trends. Go in direction market takes you. Jesse Livermore Disciple and K.I.S.S. principle.
Get in before the herd, get out before mass jubilation begins.
I enjoy trading equities and their derivatives. My best years have come when i practiced buy and hold, and kept a portfolio of 6+ stocks. My biggest gains have been from options. Feel free to say hello.
