Full time mechanical engineer wanting to trade for a living. I consider the stock market to be the greatest opportunity in the world. Enjoy woodworking, welding, golfing, skiing & playing piano. Wealthy industrialist, philanthropist and bicyclist.
Canslim style, You only learn thru experience. Mkt is like poker/chess. Know the hand your dealt and manage risk accordingly. Try to think a few moves ahead, not like a pawn. Everyday in mkt doesn't matter. Know which ones do. 99% daytraders lose
Value investor turned technical trader: I follow momentum along support/resistance lines and try to leverage gains through options, mostly weeklies. Keep a sensible allocation of money in metals, mostly modern Chinese coins. Am allergic to debt.
