Was a very active, successful trader. Serious injury with no insurance drained my savings. Got married. My incredibly smart wife suggested that I stop talking to the TV on how to trade and to use my knowledge instead to help others. So, here I am.
I only buy stocks that are ready to potentially move soon with tight Stop. I will take small loss quickly when it return back under the trend line or breakout point. http://treenhome.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-stock-trading-is-simple.html
I use a combination of fundamental and technical analysis. 15 years experience at various hedge funds and prop desks, now just trade for myself. My ideas are not investment advice so do your own due diligence.
Charting--learn charting/$ mgmt, it works--no GUESSING, no more FUNDIES, All analysts and idiots IGNORED. Haven't looked at a cash flow, P&L, balance sheet in several YEARS. Be a machine, flush emotions, use EYES NOT BRAIN, brain will ruin you here.
I'm a prop trader who mostly trades breakout patterns 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.
