Working for a FANG and trading for fun. Made quite a lot of money over the years bases on focused analysis and "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator"-like gut feel. I believe that if you are patient and disciplined, your moment always comes. Good luck.
Holding very short term only - 10 mins to an hour. Sometimes may wait for a swing. But please read most of my comments as being my opinion related to short term trading only. They are not intended to encourage any form of longer term stakes.
I buy many tickers in small lots. This allows me to buy/ sell stocks at-will. And, I sell winners and losers with equal certainty and resolve. I would rather miss getting the highest price than lose potential gains from hoping an up trend continues.
