Pro. use technical analysis to look for stocks w/ short-term price momentum. Not interested in fundamental or intrinsic value of stocks, but rather in their trends and patterns.
*Note: In this Economy-.
Buy and hold died. Follow the gurus cautiously. Some are blind. Buy dips. Buy momentum. Market is unknowable. Food always in demand. Energy too. Charts are like statistics: they can say whatever you want. Momentum + price action for swing trading.
