Please excuse my first post - hoping for your (kind) opinions/confirmation - don't have any friends that trade. Started trading 3 weeks ago - read about indicators, analysis, etc. - watched videos - paper traded for a day or two - started out live with just 10 shares of stock (NCLH). "Blue line crossed above the red line" - jumped in - the trade quickly went against me and stopped out - stared at the indicators again, MACD, RSI, etc. - thought "real hard" and jumped in again - same result - flummoxed - sat back and watched the candles/DOM for while - noticed how the tug-o-war between bids/asks was really like a dance - rhythmic/cyclic patterns - on a hunch started sliding orders into the trade from outside the spread only when the price movement looked "right" - rode the patterns - trades only lasted some seconds - made sure to pull the trade "into the fire" as soon as it felt like the price would turn against me - wow - crazy - winning - fun! Been doing "it" for the last 3 weeks and now only take losses when I try to get fancy, use something "new" that I read about, or try to analyze what I am doing. The simple move that "happened" during first hour of my "trading life" now seems to land a solid 3~5% every morning (only able to trade in morning - got to work!). Keeping my stops tight but don't seem to hit them anymore - staying in control of the trade. Looks like my basis will double in this first month (including some big learning curve losses). Did not even know what "scalping" was until I googled it. What's making me nuts is I can't seem to find ANYTHING in books/websites/videos about doing it like this - truly weird. So...ditched the indicators - don't even care anymore about fundamentals/analysis - just looking in FinViz for a stock that is active with good volume - no longer afraid of the noisy stuff - check chart for trend/breakouts/reversals/waves/resistance - watch last 3 candles and DOM to get the rhythm/range - clear my head - no fear - no emotion - dancing with the devil! So sorry for the long ramble - I just gotta know!..Is anyone else out there doing it like this...?
