An amateur trader on and off for 13 years, striving to make profits while holding down a regular day job. The most important lessons I've learned are to resist emotional impulses to trade and to know when to sit out.
I own dogs, cats, chickens, horses and a mini donkey-what the h*ll am I doing trading? Oh yeah, and I'm a professor (a least for a little while longer) at a major Ivy League University specializing in oncogenic viruses. Want to fund my research?
Have managed individual stock portfolios for 31 years. During that time I've tweaked my model for good entries and risk management. Now I'm day trading in my personal account for fun and excitement.
