I trade best when I don't even turn on any financial news. Analyze charts and set stop or limit orders. It's kind of like setting a trap and coming back later to see if you caught anything. Check markets at open and close. Ignore intra-day moves.
Have actively traded and invested in stocks for the past 16 yrs. Corporate experience at JP Morgan in the Investment Bank, and for the Rockefeller family. Currently forming a limited partnership with select investors.
