Investment strategy

I trade UK equities - it doesn't matter whether these are quality FTSE companies or AIM garbage. 

The best trades are momentum trend trades as these can offer several entry points and compound. Trading breakouts will always expose me to some of the best companies on the stock market because the price will be rising into a new range.
