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.
Trying to follow the right people and learn. My first stock was Ford.
I use only extra money. Buy low and sale when it's reaches my price. I do have a few that might go under or sit forever.
