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.
I am a 42 yr old part-time swing trader. Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. Please don't follow me blindly. Avg yearly return rate the last 6 yrs: 43.5% including 2014.
Entrepreneur, former hedge fund manager, active independent trader, trading mostly US equity mkt via stocks, ETFs and options, following closely the syndicate calendar for IPOs and secondary deals. Frenchman. Active in markets for more than 15 years.
Trader & investor. Background in international sales & business development and most aspects of corporate & business law. Prefer longer-term trending positions and swing trades; will take short-term positions during times of volatility.
Many traders asked me the secret of profitable trading. There are three golden rules: confidence; max amount-ONLY Â¼ of available trading fund in market; analysis of important financial releases immediately after being available.
I'm in it to make money. Not a bear, not a bull. More fun in bear plays, more money more often in bull plays. The news is interesting, but never trade it. Price is funny and highly deceptive. Patience is my weakness - I'm better when I have it.
