I am a trader. I don't fall in love with a symbol. Nor do I develop a gut wrenching hatred for a symbol. If I click the little red BEAR button please don't take it personally. It is an opinion on a swing trade only. Study and ask others for help.
After 25 years as an aerospace systems & airframe designer, I found a better way to make a living. I day trade using T/A based on Supply & Demand with confirmation indicators. I Swing Trade using basic option strategies based on volatility.
I buy DITM calls and Puts 3-4 months out. Enjoy teaching options. 30+ yrs experience, disciplined and always tune out the chatter! I only respond to those that are following me.
I block idiots or those that waste my time.
Sorting the truth or likely truth from the noise is a key attribute of the successful investor. My commentary reflects this effort. See my profile, articles and comments on Seeking Alpha: http://seekingalpha.com/author/robert-mcdonald/comments
