Let's say I make all my investment decisions based on technicals and charts. Through the years I have developped a few set of scan formula/criteria that generate early trade opportunities.
I get in an out based on my technical indicators, and try to never fall in love with a stock, nor will I spend much time on fundamentals. In the end, the market knows and the trend is your best friend!
