Navy Doc, I look for undervalued companies and do tons of DD, find the ones I believe will be the Apple's, (just an example) 5-10 years from now. Buy a ton of if while its LOW and sale it in a decade when it gone up a %1000. Yes it works
Swing trades and day trades.
A technical long approach with emphasis on momentum. The more positive indicators, the better. Staying disciplined and following my rules. I find, plan, execute, and repeat.
Rule #1 - 2 stocks overnight MAX (3rd only if next day PM sell)
Rule #2 - 1 biotech LT, scalp rest
Rule #3 - 0 losses, DD never fails you.
All other trades are intra-day scalps only. Sup/Res, volume, news, momo..profit from it w/ ZERO emotions.
First investment was Dec. 2014. Gotten my ass kicked and made some good trades for huge gains so far. The market for me is a constantly perplexing, ever changing, brutal bitch! I am humbled by the wisdom of others.
