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.
Started 09 w/ 100k 3 yrs. later it was 900k and since, managed to lose half in a raging bull market ... making F'n rookie mistakes. Confidence destroyed along w/ the GREEN :( Gotta get the mojo back.
