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.

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.
