Beginner/Novice Trader, looking to learn. I have more time on my hands these days and I am wanting to learn all I can about what the market likes or does not like. I am hoping to take a more active roll in my financial investing.
I use index timing to determine whether I should be long or short on index ETFs. I trade stocks, ETFs, leveraged ETFs, and SPY or equity options. Lives happily with two little boys and a stunning wife! Love StockTwits!
