I am a 42 yr old part-time swing trader. Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. Please don't follow me blindly. Avg yearly return rate the last 6 yrs: 43.5% including 2014.
I manage risk. A funny thing has happened along my journey: I don't care when I'm wrong anymore.. I simply bail as fast as possible. Controlled, selective and dynamic AGGRESSION is my key to $$$! Please know I DROP LOSING positions IMMEDIATELY.
In a December 1997 issue of Barron's, a Merrill Lynch poll found that the top strategy among 122 institutions surveyed was to buy stocks of companies that exceed earnings expectations and sell the companies that fall short.
