I'm a new trader and am trying out different strategies trying to find my niche... I use stockfetcher.com in the evening looking for stocks that are trending up or down. I pick 4 or 5 stocks both long and short that appear to be good candidates. At the opening, I will wait to see what the trend of the day is. When I see a stock that I'm looking to short at what seems to be the high of the day, I will use a ma(10) for an entry point with the 5 minute candle closing below the line. For a stop I will use the ATR x1.5. Please give me some suggestions on how to minimize my risk and maximize my gains. Thanks.
