@camdenwolf22 I've been trading for about 3 years. The beginning was a bit of a learning experience and lots of failures. It took a lot of studying the market to understand what is going on. I pick stocks based on current economic conditions (i.e. oil crisis, Russia crisis, Chinese boom), High Yield stocks, technical analysis and other factors. I do not trade any penny stocks. I work with options to get me the return I need. hope that helps!
