Been trading since the age of 6. Mixed results the first 15 years hehe. Now 24 and finally starting to cross the line of profitability. Technical analysis is a big part of my strategy, prefer trading quality names. Aside from investing in stocks I am also invested in rental residential real estate and small commercial properties in the Midwest. Currently managing my own funds and a good portion of the family's portfolio. Thus this explains my strategy mixing aggressive growth picks for myself, and a more stable and balanced portfolio for my parents who are approaching their retirement age.
