I’m a swing trader of momentum stocks with a holding period of anywhere from a few hours to a few months. I run a number of screens to locate the strongest/weakest stocks out there, using technical analysis to determine my entries and exits. Trying to calculate the intrinsic value of stocks in my opinion is out of date and there is wisdom in crowds.I've developed a market timing system that determines when it's best to be long, short or on the sidelines, using a number of proprietary indicators based on many time frames. I believe that to have longevity in this field one must find ways to calm the mind and trade from a detached point of view. Emotionless trading will allow you to respond to what's going on right now in the markets, rather than reacting to daily fluctuations.View my personal blog http://zentrader.ca/
I have been an active investor for 30+ years. Recently I started writing a blog about trading ETFs. The blog, Trading ETFs, is an educational effort to give readers an insight into the mechanics and emotions of trading ETFs. The blog is linked to MarketWatch Virtual Stock Exchange, where my transactions are open to the public for review.
