Amateur Investor / All Investments for Own Account I have about 15 years experience investing and trading my own account. On the whole, I have lost money. I have studied fundamental analysis, technical analysis, quantitative investing, etc. My biggest strengths are analyzing financial statements and evaluating major trends. My biggest weaknesses are discipline, cutting my losing positions, and relying on other's opinions instead of doing my own due diligence. For my educational background: I have an undergraduate degree in finance and accounting, a JD, and a LLM in taxation.
