I am an S&P 500 index chart technician. Have been perfecting it the last 3 years. Trading is a hobby though as I won my own Independent Insurance Agency as my day job. I also have vast knowledge on commodities.

Stock market is like poker. Know the hand that you r dealt and manage risk accordingly. If you don't know the hand your dealt, you r the sucker at the table and the market will take all your $$$$$
