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'm a day trader since 1999.
Seen some good times and bad ones!
Most important is the charts set-up and the float. The momentum is my ally.
Nothing beats the experience and an exercised brain. WOW ... wish only well....

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.
