trend follower (mainly monthly entries/exits)...hunt big trends...mma, working out...best advice i've gleaned..."an opinion is not a position; a position is not an opinion", @peterlbrandt (5/3/11 in a blog post)
Formerly derivatives, equities, futures sell side. Corporate finance, small co financing. Failed 2000 dotcom startup, now investing in private mkt as well. Curious, agnostic re strategy, open to persuasion if you have the data.
Pro. use technical analysis to look for stocks w/ short-term price momentum. Not interested in fundamental or intrinsic value of stocks, but rather in their trends and patterns.
*Note: In this Economy-.
Canslim style, You only learn thru experience(15 years). Mkt is like poker/chess. Know the hand your dealt and manage risk accordingly. I use ST to talk to MYSELF and journal. Id like to also help along the way if you can follow my nonsense! :)
Trend Trader. Price and Volume action only. Longer term for me is until i beleive a cycle and a stocks move is complete. Typically 200d breaks. Prefer fast moving stocks. CANSLIM style with my own twist.
