Rule-based discretionary trader w 15 years experience. Use the system that's right for you, love your R-multiple, honor your stops, and never risk so much that you get thrown out of the game. "If the Big Boys want it then I want it."
Studied "How To Make Money In Stocks". Found the concept appealing. Adopted it. Made my own research. Found some flaws. Corrected them. Built my own investment strategy. Adhere to it. Here I am.
Started with $1mm in May of 2009, portfolio now $5.7mm.
Invested a $1mm inheritance into high quality U.S. Companies with a long term outlook. Learning to hedge my portfolio. Trade options in a cash account.
I first started trend following 18 years ago. I wanted to know who was succeeding and what they were doing. My broker told me the most successful client of his company was a dentist who trend followed.
