I twits real time to buy stocks that are ready to potentially move soon. I will take small profit 1/2 (make break even point down) then swing for rest 1/2 . I will take small loss quickly when it return back under the trend line or breakout point.
I have been investing for 6 years now by myself. I have chosen many stocks that have the potential to be bought out, taken over, and or the acquirer. I look for dividend payers, and also growth stocks.
