As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve had fewer than usual trade ideas for the last stretch of 2013 as I got busy with preparations for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Despite that, I think my trade performance in Q4 was better compared to Q3 2013 since I managed to end up with a tiny win overall.
Looking back at my winning trades, I’ve realized that I do tend to perform better with swing setups instead of short-term ones. With that, I will try to focus on longer-term trades for this quarter. Got any tips you’d like to share?
