Been an investor since 1995. Survived two of the most crushing bear markets in stock market history and came out on the other side with more knowledge and more money than ever. You only need to get rich ONCE, and "Get rich quick" doesn't work.
Long term holder and swing trader. Normally buying dips at support to lessen the gamble. Do not do much day trading unless I have played the name before. Like to play options as well only on market pullbacks.
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.
