I'm learning to trade technicals when an emphasis on momentum/news plays, breakouts and reversals. I try to keep an eye on market psychology at critical junctures on charts. I don't advise you do anything based on my opinions expressed herein.
Learned how to trade options reading Options For Idiots, read the book only backwards. Like short shorts and shorter longs. 185 years of programing exper. leads to a unique ability to trade tech. I also have ADD which helps me process vast info fast
