I was able to eek out tiny profits over the coure of the last 5 and a half years. It took me this whole time to realize the holy grail of trading. After much wasted time spent picking bottoms, picking tops, searching for trend reversals, and a whole host of other crap, i realized that the holy grail of trading is "the trend is your friend". I use that philosophy to day trade the qqqq intraday. Keep it simple, trading aint rocket science, don't fight the trend!
