Why (Index) Mutual Funds are More Likely than Individual Stocks to Provide Gains over Shorter Periods of Time:
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.” ~ Buddha
Not really, but I am going to take a little break from it after 4 straight loses (my XLE stopped out today) and my trading account is now flat for the year! Wish I could find another hobby that I would enjoy doing to occupy my time during the day. That being said, glad my trading is just a hobby and most of my money is in Vanguard mutual funds, where that portfolio is up +2.96% YTD, as of yesterday.
I'll keep you posted what different swing trading styles I try and won't be posting any watch lists for a few days. If you want to talk to me, best to message me on FB.

XLU stopped out @ 45.82 for -.76 (-.71%), bought yesterday. May trading sucks lately, so thank god its just a hobby and most of my money is in mutual funds, which are doing great!
Bought XLE @ 80.93 with a stop of 79.89. Going to try some different set-ups of up-trending stocks that have pulled back.
