After following the markets for years, I started actively managing my portfolio in 2010. Plenty of misteps and a few victories have brought me to the point of wanting to share my experiences and gather feedback from this community.
I'm still learning the more advanced strategies for options and currently investigating futures trading, I want to bring my perspective to the investing world and hopefully generate some alpha along the way.
I tend to focus on a few names at a time to determine their trading patterns before intitating anything. I've learned that patience is a virtue and to not rush into trades. There are always more opportunities though I still struggle with "the trade that got away" syndrome on my darker days.
I hope anyone reading my articles is able to get some valuable information out my opinions and experience, and maybe a chuckle once in a while.
I own a german motorcyle in the midst of the hallowed American motorcycle birthing place. I prefer good beer to American packaged goods (also born here). Does that make me unAmerican? MAybe just a contrarian.
Systems Analyst for a medium-sized, midwest healthcare system. Recovering moderate Republican.
Small time dabler in real estate investment.
Private investor focused on value and GARP. Began investing in mutual funds just a month or so before Black Monday in 1987! I survived that and stayed the course. Been investing now in individual stocks for 16 years. I find that capital markets are a continual learning opportunity, particularly when one is getting his or her ass kicked! SA is a tremendous vehicle for exchanging ideas in a thoughtful and respectful manner.
