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.

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.
