Learn charting, it works-period. But it takes time and practice, EVERY DAY. Stop looking for E Z answers. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary! And what I do here, I do for FREE. Remember that (or go pay some "genius.")
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.
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.
