    I believe that's called "spin".

    Job too big for one person? We also need better parties and a way to stop big money from running the government. See any of that happening soon? We the People are not angry enough yet, so we get screwed.

    You understand me perfectly. Sad you are so closed minded.

    Believe me (or not) not all traders are gamblers. It is fun, however, to portray them as gamblers.......http://bit.ly/R4np2N

    The truth is (as shown by the study above) the day trading winning 1% have learned how NOT to gamble. They have developed a winning strategy I'm sure.

    Day traders should not be looked down upon. They have to eat too...and in the meantime are providing liquidity so that you investors can more easily get in and out of your holdings.

    There is enough for all.

    Have a nice day.

    Yes, I had heard the same figures. Agree, day trading is not easy. But it is attainable for some.

    Thanks again for your article Larry. Much appreciated.

    What about those that actually work hard at day trading? Do you denigrate them too?

    LOL, especially here on SA. As per an SA Co-founder, "we are a site for investors, not short term traders or day traders.....http://bit.ly/1lsRwwM".

    It would be interesting to know how many years experience the 1% that succeeded had under their belts. In other words did persistence eventually pay off?

    Any insight to that Larry?

    And John, could using TA be part of the problem?

    Ah, yes, another reason why this Instablog is a keeper,(in its whole, including comments) well worth using as a reference point for the newer among us.

    Good work Oberman !

    Oberman,
    Just read through again, both article AND comments. A great tool to recommend to newbies and wannabies....so many of whom have no strategy of their own...and no idea how to build one. I will be referring many people here to this Instablog I'm sure.

    A couple of questions: #1. Could you please expound on the use, or not, of stops? I know your general position on this subject (and you probably can guess mine...grin) but I think it would benefit many newer folk to know your reasoning when it comes to using stops.

    #2. Going underwater. We know from your avatar you have no trouble breathing down there...but some people do. Is there a trick to it? Does your ease come from knowing your stocks cold, inside and out? Or is it just a faith in your thesis?

    Thank you once again for such a clear, concise explanation of your swing strategy, plus the answers to the comments.

    Very well done Sir,

    PC

    Now that I have had time to read this Instablog...I must commend you again. Very clear and concise. Excellent for both the newbie and struggling wannabe. I'm sure I'll be assimilating (and quoting) parts of it in the future.

    Once more...a hearty Thank You !
