As an individual investor nearing retirement I am trying to build my financial assets in order to have a fulfilling retirement. I am interested in trading both long and short; or at least using inverse ETFs, to take advantage of market declines. Having long term and short term trading strategies, proper execution of my trading plan, and absolute investing results are my goals. I see my articles as a way to keep me focused on developing winning trades. I also expect to learn much from the feedback that is provided in the comments section.

I am a 62 year old electrical engineer working for Entergy Corporation retiring February 2015 with 34 years service and 4 years active duty Air Force during Vietnam War Era. In October 2011 I switched my investment strategy to dividend growth investing (total return= capital appreciation + dividend yield+ dividend growth) after years of hit or miss methods and getting no where fast.
Kelley Wright's book "Dividends Still Don't Lie" and Lowell Miller's "The Single Best Investment: Creating Wealth with Dividend Growth" renewed my interest in the dividend growth investing strategy. I use F.A.S.T. Graphs, IQTrends, and the use of the CCC list provided by David Fish for my stock watchlists as well as other due diligence reading

I am a 62 year physician, Board Certified in Internal Medicine, practicing Primary Care for Cigna Medical Group in Phoenix, Arizona. In my 35 years of practice, I have witnessed dramatic changes in medical care-mostly for the worse. I began trading mutual funds for retirement 20 years ago and made many mistakes initially. I learned it is more important to avoid big losses than to make huge gains, although the later is certainly nice. I was totally out of the market from November 2007 through February 2009. I follow the market daily guided by IBD and now Seeking Alpha. I have been married 41 years and have 2 children and 2 grandchildren. Besides following stocks I love mountain biking and playing with our dog.
