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!
Charting--learn charting/$ mgmt, it works--no GUESSING, no more FUNDIES, All analysts and idiots IGNORED. Haven't looked at a cash flow, P&L, balance sheet in several YEARS. Be a machine, flush emotions, use EYES NOT BRAIN, brain will ruin you here.
Prop Trader focused in micro & small cap high beta stocks. Day-Trading or Swing depending on set-up. I publish all my trades in StockTwits and Twitter just for for the sake of sharing, these are not recommendations to buy or sell.
