Retired primary schoolteacher- 3 years Daytrader. I still get sympathy cards rom Scottrade, but haven't missed too many bells, anyway.
Never short any trades. Strong believer in market psychology and trader behavior.
Investing since 82. Felt the pain of the 87 and 00 crashes. All fiat money is subject to devaluation. Most trading is now done by HFT-bots trading among each other.
Over 25 years experience as a networking geek. Now am a network security geek.
