Independent Investor/trader more commonly known @TheEmulator23 on Twitter. Always willing to hear other ideas from like minded traders. Favorite Stocks for the next decade are $DIS Disney & $LGF Lionsgate. Knowledge base is retail, Movies, & what people are going to want. Started learning in 1998 & got out before the Tech & .com bubble burst. Phew!. Started day & swing trading almost 2 years ago & have been adding TA to my repertoire. Not an advisor/broker, so please do your own DD. If an idea seems to be a mistake, please explain, but do it politely & with reasons to support your argument. I will not respond to ignorant or rude comments & neither should others. We all succeed more if we take personal responsibility for our actions & help one another. We're all fighting the HFT's, lets do it TOGETHER! We cannot have Judgement day happen. Sarcasm also greatly appreciated & enjoyed.

I'm a happily married father of three, and a former flooring contractor turned marketing specialist.
I've been poor and not so poor; I'm truly content in either state (however, I prefer not so poor.) I take risks eagerly, and cut losses wisely. I believe in managing my bankroll like a sports capper, spreading my bets to minimize losses. I believe in using both historical data and current trends, and most of all, due diligence. I try not to chase a stock, preferring to let it come to me. Most of all I love stocks that crash for no logical reason, so I can move in for the long haul. I'm also a big fan of selling near term covered calls.
In other words, I'm just another typical investor.
