Question #4. What type(s) of trading do you specialize in or focus on? How did you come to that decision?

• day trading cause it works
• Dividend
• Arbitrage of individual stocks who fall for unreasonable reasons. They generally rebound. Need tight stops though. I do it because these generally cause a sudden intense movement.
• Index options,I find it’s easier to follow and predict.
• options – elliott wave and other indicators
• Swing trading stocks. My schedule doesn’t allow for day trading; and longer term trading is too slow for me.
• selling BPS. Theta
• Options for the most part. Allows me to control large number of shares at a fraction for the share price.
• Puts and Calls hedging on stocks at earning dates or event. i have noticed strength upward bias
• Day trading as I can sleep well having closed very large positions.
• Futures
• futures
• Options
• options
• daytradingy technicals -stack moving
• options, less capital required
• Long term commodity etfs
