I am a Financial Programmer that develops complex trading algorithms for institutions.
Yes, I'm one of those bastards.
A bastard who hates being wrong. (and rarely is).

Use Bullish and Bearish options to play the short term movement of stocks.
Focus on high beta stocks, Volatility Plays, and many others... Will use butterfly, condor, and credit spreads at times.
