I enjoy trading equities and their derivatives. My best years have come when i practiced buy and hold, and kept a portfolio of 6+ stocks. My biggest gains have been from options. Feel free to say hello.
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.
After too many years 'investing' with little gain (or losses!) have returned to swing/daytrading.. and it has been Great! And Yes - I'm a scalper! Just another person trying to make a difference. GL to All.!
