Bottom up and top down. I like pocket pivots, breakouts and continuation patterns on market leaders -- IBD50 & CANSLIM names. Getting better is about reducing mistakes and becoming highly selective with trades. Selling properly is the hard part.
Learned how to trade options reading Options For Idiots, read the book only backwards. Like short shorts and shorter longs. 185 years of programing exper. leads to a unique ability to trade tech. I also have ADD which helps me process vast info fast
