Full time trader, mostly WTI. Worked in the aerospace industry as an engineer for almost 10 years before burning out and leaving. Trading is how I make my living but I spend the majority of my day horseback riding, woodworking, baking or gardening.
Trend follower, portfolio manager, market technician. Former sales trader to hedge funds/institutions, research analyst, prop trader, buy-side head of desk. Only took 25 years to find what works for me. Always learning.
Been actively trading since 1999. Last two years, I concentrated exclusively on crude oil futures $CL_F. I only used technical analysis to enter and exit the market. Trading hours: 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM. Love music and work out 3 times a week. Married.
