Escaped academic (PhD Business Strategy) now full-time trader. "Professional" meaning it's how I make income; been trading for years, but I still learn /everyday. 'Employed' by NFLX (ha-ha!) but "Fired" after 3QER (sob).
I'm a trader who avoids the noise, manages risk, using weekly bars. I offer no predictions, only serious long term trades. What else is there?
A careful examination of my list of losing and winning trades tells the complete story.
