I am from Italy and that is where I live now after spending the best part of a decade in London.
I work in technology developing software for the financial industry mostly using Java.
I am an occasional investor, normally keen on Apple but also on QQQ, IBB, some other ETFs and some Italian companies such Telecom Italia, Enel, Unicredit, Juventus.
I believe that there is a fine line between trading and investing and my time horizon and holding period varies from a few weeks to a few months.
I normally buy or sell plain shares although sometimes I venture into options.
I like selling covered calls on index ETFs such as QQQ and IBB.
