My best two strategies are to be well diversified and always use stop losses. Stop losses are the toughest, as I just got stopped out on AMD for a $1700 loss, but when AMD broke that big support and fell below my stop loss I had to sell, regardless of how painful. It is just the way it goes if you want to trade successfully. I currently have 34 stocks in my portfolio and it can be very challenging at times, but it is making me money, so I endure it. Cheers!
