very new to trading, currently paper trading with scottrade elite. so after a bit of reading and screen time. losing some money making risky opening trades and stuff like that. i've realized one of the most tradable patterns ive been able to identify is a channel breakout. these are intraday breakouts and have been working out pretty well for me. i try to research it and all i get is a lot of information about breakouts from channels that are weeks or months in range. my current strategy consists of trading short range long intraday breakouts is this a viable strategy? what type of things should i look up to further improve this?
