Forlorn Investor has managed his own investment portfolio since 2001 with performance that best can be described with a word survival. His interests range from mining to shipping, from agriculture to biotech, from energy to technology. His investment strategy is long-term positions supported with swing trading (long, short and options). Forlorn also believes that transparency and truthfulness are important in financial writing. Based on that belief one of his hopes is to be able to educate his fellow investors about the methods some writers use to mislead their audiences. His motto: Skepticism is a healthy attitude.
