Stocktwits is full of perma-bulls and novice cheerleaders, so it's a form of entertainment. "Buy & hold" is a ludicrous notion. Humans are inherently evil and greedy, play defense 24/7. MiF, Corporate Finance.
I started trading only 2012 but i took stock trading courses as well as spend over 13 hours a day researching trends and companies financials, charts, etc. Trading stocks is most addictive yet rewarding job i have ever done!

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.
