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.
Learn charting, it works-period. But it takes time and practice, EVERY DAY. Stop looking for E Z answers. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary! And what I do here, I do for FREE. Remember that (or go pay some "genius.")
