After 14ish years of trading, investing, swing trading, etc....I have a few things I look for (see attached chart in next comment, my bad). 1. "impulse" leg up. No clue if the top. I used to sell, now i don't. 2. then another move up, and i still want to sell, but don't 3. Now another move, and then finally some consolidation, and then finally a bear trap move lower. Now I want to sell the next move up 4. So after I sell the next move up, I'm sure I got in to early and it needs to go up and once again play with bears 5. So i give my stop ample room 6. Then nothing happens 7. trading is boring 8. Then i finally realize i have no clue 9. then (sometimes) the trade goes in my favor and then i look for other reasons to take profits 10. maybe a stop above a recent high? nah, they usually come up and tag it and then continue down 11. maybe get out at 50%??? 12......i don't have all answers to this. Anyone else think like me?
