The market is a bloodsucker, so adopt a system you are comfortable with and leave emotions at the door. I mostly swing trade using technicals, but now and then invest longer term if I find a Fat Pitch.
I'm a Big Gain Hunter. I go for pure momentum. I target powerful breakouts. I've opened up my trade journal to show how I do it. It explains my entries. My wins, my losses.
