I'm an Electrical Engineer working in the oilfield trying to make a supplemental income for my family. Learned investing basics when I was 10 but relatively new to day/swing trading. I'm a global macro junkie now & mostly trade gold, oil, & nat gas.
99% of retail investors do little research and treat this like a hobby, which is awesome for the few that actually do their research. I develop a thesis (macro, fundamental) relying on catalysts, and simplify timing by using options flows.
