    You forgot the most consistent strategy - spread trading. Stat Arb and Relative Value also count as spread trades in my book.
     
  4. Day Trading
     
  5. There are no strategies in trading. It's all one thing, understanding market behavior. Knowing how markets move, and why. This understanding (or wisdom) allows you to trade any way, according to what opportunities you're seeing in the economic environment.
     
  6. She already did: first pullbacks into directional change, first pullbacks into trend continuations.

    There's your holy grail :cool:
     
  7. What I am doing now and what I have always done: positional trading exclusively on the short side.

    I'd have the genie make me a master at penny stocks. Theres not many systems that could give you the same kinda profits that you get when a ten cent stock goes to ten dollars.
