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) swing remainder 1/2 pos . I will take small loss quickly when it return back under the trend line or breakout point.
The market is a bloodsucker, so adopt a system you are comfortable with and leave emotions at the door. I mostly swing trade using technicals, but now and then invest longer term if I find a Fat Pitch.
