A swing trader by nature, I stick mainly to the big boards stocks under $5. I consider myself still somewhat of a "growing" trader as I have only been actively trading since 2006. The hardest part to overcome has been learning what kind of trader I can be and sticking to that style. I look for certain traits in a stock that could be holding it back and evaluating the risk for a short swing to long term hold. I enjoy helping others in researching a stock they may be looking into and offering ideas of what they may want to look into further. With over 8,000 stocks to choose from there are plenty of fish out there. My analysis is a very basic overview of fundamentals prompted by my interest of how the technical side looks. My picks and my analysis are of my own research and should not be used as investment advice.
