Private Trader or "PT" (a pseudonym) is a contributor to Seeking Alpha who, at this time, values privacy as much as money therefore only Seeking Alpha editors have contact information for PT.
PT's first investment in the market was airline company "People's Express". Although the stock initially went up, ultimately the company was taken over by Frank Lorenzo (ie - Texas Air Corporation and Continental) and it's value plummeted. However, PT's interest in stocks grew. Even math seemed interesting when money was on the table. PT enjoys reading stock newsletters and Seeking Alpha in search of potential bargains.
PT enjoys trading, family, and friends (not always necessarily in that order!).
PT recommends readers review all author's past posts (including PT's) for their win / loss record. Also, especially when PT discusses stocks trading around $1, readers can check http://www.pumpsanddumps.com/ to see whether the stock is subject to any pump or dump scams. PT is not employed, paid, or in any way compensated by any of the stocks PT might discuss on SA except as an investor (and possibly as an SA contributor).
PT reminds everyone that these are not recommendations to buy, hold, or sell, and that your own due diligence is required.
I'm a retiree but have been trading stocks for 13 years. I do swing trades on growth stocks, buy beaten down value plays for longer term investments, but stay mostly in cash unless the Vix goes above 30. In addition to stocks, I do invest in precious metals and commodities. Relative to stocks, I do evaluate quarterly reports and earnings growth, but am aware of chart patterns. I've come to think that one should really try to play corrections as a basic strategy -- versus getting rolled over by them.
Motto: There is no such thing as "won't", only "can't". All is up to you.
Personality: an optimistic, diligent, responsible person who have a great passion for life and career.
Interested in: financial and banking services, digital marketing, PR.
During the past working experience, I've gained rich experience is customer relationship management, press release writing, social media marketing, company management.
