I only buy stocks that are ready to potentially move soon with tight Stop. I will take small loss quickly when it return back under the trend line or breakout point. http://treenhome.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-stock-trading-is-simple.html
I'm a prop trader who mostly trades breakout patterns 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 $20 stocks.
Charting--learn charting/$ mgmt, it works--no GUESSING, no more FUNDIES, All analysts and idiots IGNORED. Haven't looked at a cash flow, P&L, balance sheet in several YEARS. Be a machine, flush emotions, use EYES NOT BRAIN, brain will ruin you here.
