I'm curious what you are looking at to determine your nightly watchlist. For me I'm looking at multi-day runners that have had a history of running in the past. I'm looking at big percent gainers, but trying to stay away from one day spikers unless they've had a history of running in the past. Since I'm learning my craft like you are, I'm trying to gain as much knowledge from other traders as much as I can.

@StefanSchwarz13 big % gainers, multiday runners. Multiday runners off their highs. Ya I don't want 1 day runners but I'll watch them for several days to see if they set up for a breakout.

Hi Stephan, I'm the same age. I joined a few weeks back and I'm looking forward to learning as much as possible here. People like you are the icing on the cake. Thanks for sharing your expierience.

@RedHalo Give it time, there is a lot of material and Tim and all of the other mentors want us to learn and they are pulling for us as long as we put in the time studying and the effort. Though I work full-time and once I'm back in the office I cannot watch the market, I can still study and still listen to some of the videos (the ones I can access), but I can also read. I'm always doing something to learn each and every day, even if I cannot put 15 hours in. Most days I'm studying 1-2 hours.

I cannot offer any firsthand advice: I started trading while in graduate school and then really got into day-trading while I was working mostly from home. 8 months after I started doing that I quit to trade full-time. I think most of the people I have seen go from real jobs to trading full-time have either lived on the west coast so that they can trade for a couple hours prior to the market open or worked in jobs where they always were at a computer and were not closely supervised

I would say that even for swing-trading when you don't need to watch closely you need to have some experience watching the market closely as you are learning to trade. Also, if you do very algorithmic trading (with firm rules) you might be able to set up trades and stop losses and then not have to watch closely

Thanks for the video! Identifying where support is and how close or far away is something I definitely look for when Im looking to buy into a play
