My average holding time for a stock is a week to a few weeks(rarely longer unless I get lucky) and 1-3 days if things go bad. Part of my philosophy as a trader is I have to have at least a 2:1 R:R into the next resistance level in order to take a trade. Because of this, my setups have been limited to Landry style entry pullbacks and buying breakouts of tight consolidating stocks near alltime highs. I have not had luck in the past trying to trade off of technical patterns; cup and handle, etc. because I am focused on quick thrusts and see the market in building blocks... once the chain of higher high and higher low trend legs are violated, I don't like the stock anymore. I am looking for setups anyone might care to share with me for a trader of my time length. That, or recomended literature.
