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.
I am an independent trader with over 25 years of experience working on the buy and sell-side. I have researched and invested in traditional and alternative asset classes and worked at Pensions Funds, International Banks and Dealers.
A work in progress, trader for 25 yrs. thru brokers (remember those) past 5 yrs. full time scalp,swing and now options picked up bits pieces from some great traders on ST since 09 what a great resource! Thanks
Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I'll keep trading."Modern man is one who drives a mortgaged car over a bond financed highway on credit card gas!" ~Cy N. Peace, 1957
