POLL: Are you a home run champ or a batting average champ?

Discussion in 'Trading' started by candletrader, Jun 8, 2003.

  1. Do you go for smaller gains with a higher chance of getting em, or larger gains with a correspondingly lower chance?

    Please vote...
  2. ... and feel free to comment, too

  3. depends on the pitch<g>
  4. I've got a good 'home run' method...

    now trying for a 'high batting average' method...

    It would be nice for my head to have both.

  5. Once you've found something that achieves both simultaneously, I will be first in line to buy it from you :D

    Its the difference between the trend followers and the scalpers.
  7. Not always... bottom and top pickers / countertrend players both in the shorter (high batting average) and longer (home run champ) term environment are also included...
  8. Pretty even split so far, but the voting is still in its early days...
  9. My daytrading is 100% small gains and grinding it out. No homeruns for me.

    If I make a "triple", I feel like a hero and then I pinch myself to see if I'm dreaming.

    Other than that, it's grind, grind, and grind.

    A home run for me is a trade that nets $50K+. What is it for you?
