I bought my first stock on March 10, 2009. Been doing pretty darn good thanks to twitter and now stocktwits. I love to watch stocks now with a passion. I am both long term and swing trader.
Not a professional trader. I am a professional writer/researcher and a cautious risk-taker by nature. I apply my research skills to the market. I'm a StockTwit to learn from the pros and I offer tips when I find them.
