I started getting into the stock market at the young age of 13. I have been determined ever since then to learn how to make money in the stock market. By the end of high school I was known has the stock market “kid.” For my graduating class my teachers created a new award for one student to be awarded each year due to my passion in the markets. I am proud to be my high school’s first Warren Buffet Award Winner.
My reputation continued in college as have tried to help others learn what I know. I became President of our school’s Financial Management Association, Treasurer of my fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and also Treasurer of the Inter Fraternity Council. Through the power of leadership I have continued to help others learn the basics of the markets.
I have traded full time using financial derivatives which was very lucrative until the recent market turbulence. I have developed additional risk management rules that adapt to six sigma type events which I share with those close to me. I am now trading again full time with a focus on risk management, profit & loss, and statistical management. Trading is my passion so I strive to utilize 110% of my potential through the continuous commitment to the innovation of the portfolio management profession. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration as a finance major in 2009.
I now own my own market research firm Shane Edmund Group LLC (www.shaneedmund.com) and help with my father's company in business development/operations management involving the quality end of high-tech manufacturing applications (www.accutechmeasurement.com).

New trader looking to figure out this thing called the "market". Adjunct Faculty at a local community college working to help those who have never thought about investing and retirement start their plan.
I am a long term investor, buying stocks as a teen through an account I begged my father to open.
I am a software developer by trade. I have an Accounting degree and an MBA along the way, so I do really understand the numbers involved.
I tend to like investments that are out of the ordinary and may provide a high rate of return versus a lower than expected risk level.
