I first started trend following 18 years ago. I wanted to know who was succeeding and what they were doing. My broker told me the most successful client of his company was a dentist who trend followed.
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!
