Mabbers risk management.
Not sure if this helps you or not, but look at it this way. If you start with a $250 balance and just look for 20% gain each day, in 20 days you will have close to $10,000 in your account (minus commissions). Some days you will make more, others less. Set limits, and set targets for each day, too.....and write everything down so you know where you are at by the end of the week. If you don't hit your target, at least try to make a profit....then set a new target. 

Beerworld setup
I can toggle between all time frames but set up remains the same. but maybe not which I emphasize. I have bol bands and EMA 3 and 8. S1 S2 and R1 R2. under Wm%r CCI 14, RSI OBV and a MOM indicator. I am using 2 min and 5 min for short term trading. But to avoid too many whipsaws I need more than one confirmation. CCI is more of a confirmation . For turns I am more watching Wm%r and RSI.

Roy setup
It is an example of how I look for a reversal on a rising stock price to anticipate a top and reversal as a puts entry point. 
These are my actual indicators which have changed little. If you 
don't have a good chart service, wasting your time here. I use StockCharts, 30 bucks a month. 
Start with a stock that has been doing little for a while but on the 5-minute is executing a steep advance. You should be seeing RSI(14) already high (mostly above 70) Wm%R(14) similar, stock volume increasing with longer green bars, STO 14,3 beginning to climb, likewise STO 5,5: A/D level or beginning to slope down, Chaiken oscillator middling, OBV similar to A/D. 
All this is intraday. Watch the stock price climb steeply, supported by long green volume bars. RSI will wiggle around up and down mostly in the region of +70, actually preferably slightly lower highs and lower lows, not much, the thing is not shouting at you. Definitely do want RSI climbing with the stock. No, no. Wm is similar, slightly lower and wobbly up and down a little. A/D and IBV may have a little effect, but unless large, ignore. WATCH CHAIKEN OSCILLATOR: IT NEEDS TO BE GOING DOWN, diverging from the rising stock price. After a while (1/2 hour, hour, more?) There may be a hesitation in the stock advance, but resuming shortly AT A LESS STEEP SLOPE. Not a lot of time left. Look for shorter green volume bars and an occasional red volume bar, both shorter than the previous steep price advance. The thing is tiring, late arrivers have less money to push the stock up. Usually see a typical toppy candle: shooting star, dark cloud cover, or engulfing. See the RSI diving. See Wm%R dive through -50. Sto 5,5 has already turned over to below 80, Sto 14,3 has hooked and threatening to drop through 80. Buy the puts NOW.
