Remember that these stocks can have a limited lifetime of 10 minutes or so and never trend and simply have too much volatility for any indicator to have any kind of use. If you are referring to MACD, stochastics, Bbands, etc. they may look cool but only have real usefulness if a stock is trending well. Less is always better but volume, support and resistance are a good place to start.

only thing I dont like about this is it doesnt display news so you kind of are going in blind and dont know why the stocks are going up or down

You need to focus on solid trades, small account or big, braking rules doesn't help...you took a speculative trade and dint have a tight enough leash, don't make that mistake again

Yeah exactly spec trade, no leash was the prob. I won't repeat it. Much needed tough love. I built my account before on solid trades, following rules. I gotta be stricter, I can't blame life events anymore.

True man or paper trade it instead of getting real dollar hurt on a spec.

If I need to look deeper I will look into Twitter, TheLion, Yahoo, and Seeking Alpha as needed.

I used Stockfetcher.com, Create FIlters. I have 100 filters that I have basically written using terms defined in Stockfetcher. Each day, I have some email me the lists with the returns in them

@rugby Trying to get an understanding of your trading style, your longer term positions seem to fit my risk appetite and preference a bit more than other styles I've seen. Do you use any indicators? Even something as simple as a 200 SMA, or are you strictly clean chart support/resistance levels only? Thanks.

Tactik
Tactik Nov 14, 16 9:11 PM

@rugby would the Elliot Wave Theory be one of those cycles or something similar to it?

Most stuff out there is too slow for leveraged ETFs, my goal is to get in and out with $500 to $1000 gain in as short as time as possible using 1000 shares+/-. Any charting technique is going to show you what you should have done after you should have done it. Longer plays, sure, give it a go BUT you will miss lots of $$$ while you wait for the longer move. My technique is a blend of charting, history and feel for the ETF

@sparhawk Very wise advise and I really appreciate it, thanks once again, wish you the best luck

I may be able to help a bit...Watch my few videos. They are short and very specific for when to enter and when to get out. You really need to look at stocks a bit higher in price also because I find they tend to be a bit more predicatable. Then choose a type of trade. Gap-Up, Gap-down, Momentum, Reversals. Then Go to YOUTUBE and watch Ross Cameron Warrior trader/gappers or momentium or reversal..etc. He has a different style of teaching that helped me. It is ok to learn from others as well

Jules Oct 19, 16 6:08 PM

Contunued - as wise. Then paper trade a style that appeals to you and only use your real money after you have become consistant on paper. Tim is right....Success takes much time and patients. Never enter a trade to early...no need to. Relax an make clear decisions. Hope this helps.

@rugby What do you think of being long $TNA @73.10 for a swing-trade bounce off of support?

rugby
rugby Sep 15, 16 9:30 AM

I am always long TNA, 73.10 is a price, maybe not the right one, open is 72.93

I got three trades in from open until now, last exit was 74.60

@Pietrogaro Lol dude calm down please and read that I've tried to tell you that I'm not talking about investing. I'm talking about trading. You are talking about investing in bull markets, which is positive sum yes, I never denied that, and that's what investopedia is stating as well. The point I have been trying to make here and which you don't seem to get is that trading (NOT investing) is zero sum, especially considering the fact that everything will eventually come to an end

Doncematic
Doncematic Aug 16, 16 8:47 AM

and the point of this blog post, I need other people to lose in order for me to win, which is basic market principles in active trading. Let's keep this a healthy discussion, I respect your input and opinons, but please try to read what I'm specifcally stating before I make assumptions

@Doncematic What happens when a company like $TSLA stock goes from 200.00 to 500.00 and is still climbing? What if everyone gains money because they all had long positions but some gained more than others?

Doncematic
Doncematic Aug 22, 16 4:38 AM

@Rollingball Sorry for the late reply, but here goes ;) You assume that it's a bull market, in which the stock trading game can indeed be a positive sum game, but if you think about the stock collapsing 2 years later in a bear market, then those people would lose it again. In my blogpost, I'm talking about actively day trading, not investing.
