I am a short term technical swing trader. I have perhaps the simplest methodology...I simply read stock charts to determine when to enter and exit trades. I use options as my trading vehicle, simply buying puts or calls aiming to sell those options for profit. My trades are typically open for around a month or so. I run tradingwithzach.com where I show my subscribers how to consistently profit from the markets. GDX/GDXJ and USO (and their leveraged counterparts, NUGT, DUST, JNUG, JDST, SCO, SCO) are vehicles I frequently trade, among other ETFs and stocks. I run tradingwithzach.com where I provide trade alerts to subscribers and teach how to profit from the markets consistently.
