Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I'll keep trading."Modern man is one who drives a mortgaged car over a bond financed highway on credit card gas!" ~Cy N. Peace, 1957
Warning I am an emotional trader. I have made a lot of money and lost it! But I always root for my stocks to succeed! It's just more fun that way!
Former high school teacher for 20 years, now a trader by day, tutor by night. I am trying to educate myself here to be a better trader. I love music, comedy, movies, sports, nature, and animals, especially dogs.
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 don't know much about fundamentals. I don't get charting. I do recognize value when reading an article. Often I do realize a good stock buy based past performance. I hold until I can sell at a higher price. I'm still learning.
