If you want to implement this Trend Following strategy, you can. Because I did it too.
It took me 3 years to figure out the in and outs of this strategy, how to avoid false breakouts and how to instantly find stocks that work best for this strategy...
Yes, I've tried numerous strategies before this one that all failed me. Yes, I made a lot of mistakes and almost blew up my account twice.
And you'll make those mistakes too. Count on many trials and errors you'll make along the way, but you'll learn a lot.
From my own experience, it's a harder way, but it's doable.
If you want to do it this way, go for it.
