20 years in as of 2017 and trading for myself full-time. Took me 8 years at first to get it! I have traded for firms on Wall St. I'm a profitable technician and a chartist. The game is now NOT Vegas oriented and semi boring.
Mechanical Engineer turned full time Options Trader. Pure technical trader. Don't speculate. Don't overthink.
