I'm going to warn you right from the get go - I have NO earthly idea what I'm doing. None. No, really. Quit my day job and been F/T trading since June 2013. Have more money than I started with. Substantially more. Better lucky than good? Guess so.
I am a systems, rules based, long term trader & teacher. I go out of my way to avoid noise, while managing risk. I view the market via WEEKLY bars. A careful examination of my list of losing and winning trades tells the complete story.
I am breaking all the diversification rules right now by keeping almost 90% of my money in AIG. I used to hold ARR or AGNC, but I have switched to AIG in Sept 2012.
