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.
Turned 10k into 1/2 million in 2 yrs!
I consider myself a day/swing trader; however, I also maintain a separate portfolio with long term holdings which I add to when good opportunities present themselves.
