I feel more comfortable buying swing trades. I need to focus more on swings. I also feel more comfortable buying stocks near the lows -- but the caveat being -- I need to wait for the first sign of an impending new trend.... whether it's a sign of volume. or a 20 day MA break or other.
Then -- I can always start with a small position and add - since the swing will last many days.
The trades should come in chunks. First profit taking... then getting in, then scaling out. But all over a fluid process.
Too much focus on daytrading is a distraction and hardly profitable.
