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)
Invested $400k in stocks in 2012 and held.Now worth over $1 million. Did not obsess about market, slept well, traveled, and kept daily focus on making world a better place. Trying to learn trading for greater gains, but not make $$ my purpose in life
lose the ego/opinions! search for best fundamentals & study price/volume action for entries.
no reco's, just ideas & examples. do your own research and know your own time frames. A butterfly causing a tsunami twitter- @twentyonetrader
Interested in market breadth and shareholder yield. Market cap is my favorite metric. Currently bullish and overweight investment firms and Bill Gross. Previously: solar. From the Bay Area, now in Cambridge, MA.
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.

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! :)
