I am interested in what method others use to trade. I know this is a general question............it is intended to be. I trade in short time frames and use a divergence system that relies on double tops and double bottoms. An analysis is made and signal is generated based on comparing price to the MACD signal line and a stochasitc oscillator. I don't really care where the market is headed and don't need to predict long term. Trade in the present. Whatever the market is offering, I focus on this.
