I am an equities trader (from home) who only goes short. I have been trading for a few years, trade everyday, and never ever go long. I also cannot trade if someone else is in the room. Are there any other traders with these traits, or is everybody else more balanced and able to go both ways, and trade with someone peering over their shoulder. Anyone have short strategies they would care to share? I am a scalper, usually hold less than 10 minutes, and make money about 4 out of 5 days, and feel like a huge success when I am up on a day when the Dow climbs sharply. Since this is my first post, I would also like to say I have learned quite a lot from this board over the last few months since I discovered it.
