I consider myself an amateur now based on some personal objectives. I've learned a great deal, but need to refine my execution. I give much credit to the 12631 & especially www.daytradingradio.com ! What very awesome forums!!

I'm trying to be a swing trader. I've lost money in the past by holding on to losers. Lately I always cut losses below 5% and aim for 10%+ gains. I sometimes miss out on winners, but I'm in the black now and feel I'm making good progress.
