Ive done well growing my own, sizable, stock portfolio. My moves might not always look profitable, but they always pay off. Common sense, great instincts, lots of reading, inherently understanding the world around me, helps.
Interested in trading systems since 1996... in early to mid 2016, I completely stopped trading individual stocks barring a few small trades in long term accounts. After much research & backtesting, I now trade a SPY option spread system. Good luck!
