Just a retired guy who has made the market and Options trading my passion for the last 15 years. Full time investor. I am a chart trending, chart studys, and fundumentals person. I look for chart trend to surport a increase in the company numbers. If the company numbers are there, then why aren't the stock price trends going with the numbers? Sometime I feel we look for just the reverse. Good Numbers, then get in a stock and wait for the price. and wait, and wait, and wait. Make the trend your friend but only if the company numbers support the direction.
