What's your trading setup? What portion of your portfolio do you allocate for longterm and short term trades? I'm still learning about trading and it looks like having a setup that is relatively safe in the long term is good, but I like the higher risk/reward of short term trading. If I become profitable swing trading (still negative) would it be better just to focus on short term swing trading? It seems to be fairly easy and safe to invest in stocks and etfs, but my returns aren't near what I want. Any ideas, advice for a newbie?
