Learn charting, it works-period. But it takes time and practice, EVERY DAY. Stop looking for E Z answers. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary! And what I do here, I do for FREE. Remember that (or go pay some "genius.")
I'm a student, trading low amounts of shares for fun and entertainment. I'm here to learn from others and share what I know with others... I watch stocks everyday hoping to learn more but not always trading.. oh and I never go short..
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.
