Trading using both fundamental and technical analysis methods allows me to trade specific events, unexpected events or news headlines. These trades may have varying time horizons – some will be short term, others will be long term. Usually they are held for a minimum of one day unless stops or profit targets are triggered.
Sometimes I will have plenty of time to prepare my strategy, at other times I have to devise a strategy on the fly as events are changing quickly. Sometimes I will be right, sometimes I will be wrong.
Hopefully the case studies below give you a flavour of how I use the philosophy so that you may be able to apply some of the ideas in your own trading.
