Picked up a Wall St. journal at 17, at 19 made first investment in Mutual Funds[good], 21 trading stock[bad], 25 traded Forex[average], built a following, traded professionally, 2008 it all fell through. Took time off, at 32 back at it as of May 12.
I focus on identifying and getting long undervalued or little known prospective momentum plays and on going short when hype and exuberance has caused an equity to far exceed a 'rational' valuation by traditional metrics.
A work in progress, trader for 25 yrs. thru brokers (remember those) past 5 yrs. full time scalp,swing and now options picked up bits pieces from some great traders on ST since 09 what a great resource! Thanks
