I am a 42 yr old part-time swing trader. Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. Please don't follow me blindly. Avg yearly return rate the last 6 yrs: 43.5% including 2014.
I trade off of support, breakout patterns, catalysts, and momentum. I will either scalp, scale in intra-day, or will build a position for days anticipating a big move. Love volume. Love under $20 stocks.
Primary interest is Bio with intriguing pipelines that have large growth potential. I attempt to hold >50% of positions as long unless there is negative data, mgmt. concerns, or known negative events. Most funds secured in MFs and divvies though.
