Part-time trader. Trading since Sept 2012. Was dependent on chat rooms until I realized I don't listen to them. Jan 2014 started trading mostly solo. Learned A LOT! Good supplemental income so far. Now if I can only find more time!!
Heavily leveraged, only taking positions when a large reward:risk bias skew perceived. Exit quickly after the easy money has been made but press the great moves if out-sized returns are probable via statistically (seemingly) improbable continuation.
Was a very active, successful trader. Serious injury with no insurance drained my savings. Got married. My incredibly smart wife suggested that I stop talking to the TV on how to trade and to use my knowledge instead to help others. So, here I am.
