A software developer in Silicon Valley with Engineering Physics degree from the University of Illinois and patents from several companies (Intel, Macrovision) currently working at a start-up.

I'm try to diversify my holding into energy (CVX), industrial(GE), financial(AIG) stocks and REITs(OHI) to seek stability, and seek alpha by investing in what I know, which is technology stocks.
I'm here to learn about good investment opportunities, and to occasional share my insights from a software developer's perspective.
I have been trading stocks actively for over 40 years. I am convinced that the playing field
has been gradually levelled over that time so that insiders no longer have the hefty adantage that they used to have. I beleive that BATS (Better Alternative Trading System) has been a wonderful additional tool for keeping track of what is going on in the US market. Also good charting program such as Worden Brothers TC2000 are very useful and reasonably priced.
Private Investor - Actively manage my investment and retirement accounts.
Trading Methodology - Always looking to hit home runs while slashing singles and stealing bases. (ie I look for long opportunities (GARP) and swing trade while following the major trend. Sometimes use options to gain leverage or safety.)
Trading Frequency - Yearly, monthly, weekly and daily. Differing strategies and time horizons for different stocks and situations.
