$SPY I love charts. They’re just another fantastic method of reading the “story” that is a particular stock. However, I believe many put too much emphasis on the simply the chart alone. The chart is the buy/sell guide. Or the “don’t even try” guide. It’s the last piece of info I look at, and I strongly believe those who do it any other way are severely handicapping their potential. The chart is the way to keep emotions out of trades. It dictates the course of follow through that comes from each potential play. Over time and repetition, I’ve gotten very good at my trend and pattern recognition. Let reality do the work while we do our best to make money with it, and not fight it.
