I'm in it to make money. Not a bear, not a bull. More fun in bear plays, more money more often in bull plays. The news is interesting, but never trade it. Price is funny and highly deceptive. Patience is my weakness - I'm better when I have it.
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.
