    I'm fairly new here and curious about how you guys picked stocks.

    Here's what I do:

    I usually use the screener to scan a wide-arrange of stocks. Here's what I'm looking: volatility and volume. After I got the list of the desired stocks, I do some simple technical analysis on them such as EMA/VMA/MA, RSI/MACD/Stoc.

    After I narrow down the list, I'll then look at the news that surrounds the sector. Is it a bull/bear sector? Not forgetting to check the announcements made by the company about earnings and new product development and such.

    And only after those break-down are fulfilled, I'm executing my trade. (no fundamental analysis since I'm trading on 3 days - 2 weeks basis).
