It's a mistake to blindly follow anyone, including "experts" and media. I've been too greedy and too fearful. Learning candlesticks, watching RSI. Mistakes can be great teachers. Disclaimer: My musings are ideas, not investment advice.
Mainly a swing trader. Don't usually day trade. I trade primarily 3XETF's and will hold them as long as I see a general uptrend. I dont usually trade TZA, FAZ or UVXY, unless its a no brainer. I will go to cash and sit in times of uncertainty.
I started trading only 2012 but i took stock trading courses as well as spend over 13 hours a day researching trends and companies financials, charts, etc. Trading stocks is most addictive yet rewarding job i have ever done!
