I recommend setting price alerts for stocks. When you identify a good setup, figure out where and when the move will happen. Ideally, when I receive this alert, I buy without questioning. However market conditions or work could shape my actions. But trust your instincts. If you identify stocks with compelling charts and positive financials - a price trigger confirms your thesis.
If I could watch charts all day and bullshit with my friends, that would be cool. But, I have a day job with aspirations to make it - via stocks or with my company. Wish me luck. And good luck to you, too.
