I am a 42 yr old former IBD trader. Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. I am a smart ass but very sensitive. Go figure. Please don't follow me blindly. Avg yearly return rate the last 6 yrs: 51% including 2014.
I started trading only last year but i took stock trading courses as well as spend over 13 hours a day researching trends and companies financials, charts, etc. Trading stocks is most addictive yet rewarding job i have ever done!
I only buy stocks that are ready to potentially move soon with tight Stop. I will take small loss quickly when it return back under the trend line or breakout point. http://treenhome.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-stock-trading-is-simple.html
