Due diligence important also instincts. Don't blindly follow anyone, especially "experts". I read and use chart and volume study, trends, weighing risk tolerance. Mistakes can be great teachers. Disclaimer: For entertainment only.
Prop Trader focused in micro & small cap high beta stocks. Day-Trading or Swing depending on set-up. I publish all my trades in StockTwits and Twitter just for for the sake of sharing, these are not recommendations to buy or sell.
I use index timing to determine whether I should be long or short on index ETFs. I trade stocks, ETFs, leveraged ETFs, and SPY or equity options. Lives happily with two little boys and a stunning wife! Love StockTwits!
