Forum: Gurus Answer Questions - Thread #672498239Msg #18 - Part 1/6 (Rec: 0)
I'd like to thanks Ry5577 and PornStarTrader for taking time to put answer the most important
question to a new trader "how to DD". It was still a question that I ponder from time to time.
Not being a full-time trader, and split between school and work, I feel that I'm still at square one
and with less $ in my trading account than I have 9 years ago. I often find myself following GURU's picks here. From time to time I do try to include Technical Analysis (not very experienced) prior to each transaction. If lucky I will win, but my losses surpasses it most of the time.
My question is, instead of following the guru's picks here, what is the best way
to screen for a potential winner? I know lion and many of the GURUS here always have bring in new ticker for us noobs to follow on our own will. How is the screening process done?
I'm still not a fulltime trader but I can stream CNBC from work. Know it'll be too late by the time
CNBC report anything? Is there a better way? If this is a trade secret I can understand.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks a million in advance!!!

Don't follow me.  I'm a Noob and my losses surpass my wins. 
Do correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: you have to decide what kind of trader you are,, day,swing,momo,,,,,,ie,,,,,,...

I vote momo lion trader, that means, able to go both long and short, and hold those trades for maximum effects, not daytrading it per se, not real set rule as far as time frame goes. Lion trader mean able to hedge and not afraid to double down on something worthwhile, and able to sell for loss on something that didn't pan out, not hitting homeruns all the time.

The best traders know their risk/reward ratios and capital preservation skills.
