Investing since 82. Felt the pain of the 87, 00, and 08 crashes. All fiat money is subject to devaluation. Most trading is now done by HFT-bots trading among each other. Won't chase any stock/ETF. Over 25 years experience as a networking geek.
Trader of options
Use Bullish and Bearish options to play the short term movement of stocks.
Focus on high beta stocks, Volatility Plays, and many others... Will use butterfly, condor, and credit spreads at times.
