Started trading in 2009! Made 38% my first year and never looked back. Self taught. Keep it simple. No options. Just long & short positions & a few swings in between. Keeping it simple & trading my plan!
I like to find undervalued turnaround stories that are still in the 1st or 2nd inning. I listen to the conference calls, read the quarterly earnings, and sift through the numbers (I value both fundies and technicals, as well).
