Hello, A friend recently told me about this site and I've been following it the past couple of weeks, and I've noticed the interest a lot of people have in the journal threads. I've also noticed that most don't offer much in the way of methods. I'm not starting this journal to prove anything to myself or to anyone else. I've been trading full time for about 3 years, and I've been fortunate to have been successful. I take a swing approach and will be offering to anyone interested my personal methods. They are very simple, they are often times boring, and they've been used since the stock market began. Sometimes, I do nothing. Sometimes, I do a lot. It all depends on the charts. I don't read news. I don't watch TV. I don't listen to analyst. I follow the charts: 60 minute, daily, and weekly of the major indices......daily and weekly for individual charts. I'm going to provide charts I'm watching before they trigger - usually the night before. I'm not going to do daily commentary, and I'm not going to have the time to answer a lot of questons. Since it's late, I'm not going to go into my methods nor am I going to post many on my watch list for tomorrow. I'll post more this weekend when I have the time and if any of the members here have interest in my doing so.
