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.
I am a 42 yr old former IBD trader. Price action, volume and chart patterns is all I got in my tool bag. I am a smart ass but very sensitive. Go figure. Please don't follow me blindly. Avg yearly return rate the last 6 yrs: 51% including 2014.
I currently write for Seeking Alpha.
I started investing at a young age because I've never liked working for money. I like sharing ideas, learning from others and having fun in the process.
