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.")
Long term investor. Short term / Day & Mo when I can. Like discussing stratagies & finding the repeat patterns that live in the tangled web of info. Opposite view is food for thought. Yes I have an opinion. Always do your DD.
I enjoy reading the tape for what it says. Price, volume, and time are the only variables that matter. Indicators like RSI, MACD, Stochastic Oscillators, Bollinger Bands are based on past price action and are therefore lagging and often misleading
