I am a full time blogger & stock trader. Technical analysis & charts are the foundation to my trading. I enjoy teaching & helping others become better.
I am the #1 Most Followed member of the largest small cap message board in the world: "iHub"
I use any info I can to make a buck. Best trades include all ingredients technical, fundamental and option flow. I trade all time horizons from a day to a year and I primarily only trade options in my trading account.
Mainly a swing trader. Don't usually day trade. I trade primarily 3XETF's and will hold them as long as I see a general uptrend. I dont usually trade TZA, FAZ or UVXY, unless its a no brainer. I will go to cash and sit in times of uncertainty.
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.")
