Very simple----Identify markets that have potential---that are either under-valued or over-valued and take aggressive positions to maximize a move back to a more normal valuation. This process requires both fundamental and technical analysis as well as an aggressive offensive or defensive approach.


Know what the risk/reward ratios are and trade accordingly. Use stops and other forms of aggressive defensive methods. Money management is of Paramount importance.
