Just a small fish swimming in shark-infested waters. I have a BS in Chemical Engineering and a deep interest in science and investment management. My investment strategy was designed based on fundamental, technical and intermarket trends. Asset allocation follows this plan, which mostly focus on quality growth stocks while optimizing returns by analyzing market fluctuations. I like to take occasional calculated risks in speculative stocks.

Individual investor. Been at it since 2005.
Blue chips and emerging blue chips.
Love to spend free time poring over my watch-lists, reading annual reports, finding undervalued companies and making money in stocks.
As an independent trader, I focus on tradeable advice across a wide range of financial products and markets. After several years of short-term trading I now find the real challenge is to take a trade guided by macro views and only pick those trades that fit my trading personality.

Been trading for over 20 something years. I've seen a lot. I've made a lot and I've lost a lot. One thing never changes, and it's how Wall Street pays themselves - in CASH!! They never get a thousand shares of XYZ company as a bonus. Or get paid in 1000's shares in the companies either they themselves or their brokerage house covers, or does IPO's or financing for. Never. And I don't mean the Stock Option grants where they are allowed to exercise the options to buy shares at $2.75 when the stock is at $80. I mean they never get paid, in bonus or compensation or otherwise in the MARKET price of a stock. They are never paid like that, and it seems kind of odd, doesn't it?? They promote and sell STOCKS to me and YOU.....YET, they ALWAYS get paid in CASH.......why is that? This is a game that's hard to "win". If you play, play for a little while, make your money and GET OUT. PUT it in CASH. RUN, don't walk RUN as fast as you can. The Stock Market is like a casino. THE HOUSE ALWAYS WINS !! Remember that and you will do just FINE!! Good Luck!
