Retired & enjoy traveling. Entrepreneur & consultant 1980-2007. Sometimes trade for fun...
Day-trading during Jan-Mar 2014, but many months have no active trading. Most public equities in boring SP500/R2000/W5000. Currently no bonds.
I started trading only last year but i took stock trading courses as well as spend over 13 hours a day researching trends and companies financials, charts, etc. Trading stocks is most addictive yet rewarding job i have ever done!
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.
