Learn charting, it works-period. But it takes time and practice, EVERY DAY. Stop looking for E Z answers. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary! And what I do here, I do for FREE. Remember that (or go pay some "genius.")
My trading style utilizes simple supply/demand levels based on volume profiles, trend lines and gap analysis. I steer clear of most moving averages, candles, and use indicators only as odds enhancers. My area to improve on is limiting losses.
I make stock plans with my Visionary line time frame alignment system to time high odds trade setups with key trigger numbers and volume instructions .Checkout my twitter page for a Video that explains more info

Day trader, short term opportunist playing volume and volatility. Trade stocks and options normally for 3 days to 2 weeks. I have been trading for about 15 years and thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the strict adherence to discipline to be successful.
I trade off of support, breakout patterns, catalysts, and momentum. I will either scalp, scale in intra-day, or will build a position for days anticipating a big move. Love volume. Love under $20 stocks.
