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.
First year of trading end in 2012 -- probably will be flat. But learning. Mostly a chart guy. Can I make a living at this? Verdict still out. Now learning options, hopefully better for capital and profit protection. Plus, like the leverage it offers.
