I'm a full-time investor/trader, fund manager, and father. I have a B.S. in Physics and a B.S.M.E. in Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, a M.S. in Physics from Leland Stanford Junior University, a M.P.P. from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, and a Ph.D. in Physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am also a CFP, a Licensed Securities Broker (I've passed the Series 7 and Series 63), and I have my Georgia Real Estate Sales License. In addition to that, if anyone cares, I'm an accomplished musician and vocalist, and I've written and recorded several albums when I was in my twenties and thirties (I still play occasionally, but I rarely have the time anymore). I'm also a graphic artist who draws and paints using various mediums, and I've probably designed some logos or other artwork on the computer that you've seen before. I even designed the first county flag of Elbert County, GA (where I grew up) when I was 13 years old. [As a quick sidenote, I only did it for the money. The county held a contest, and artists, architects and professional designers from all over Georgia entered it. I beat all of them and won 100 bucks! I didn't even work for free back then! How ya like them apples??? LOL!]

My name is Payman Winborn. Upon graduation from college in 1999 I founded a company that distributed computer hardware. Although this was a profitable business, I did not want to focus all my resources on one avenue of success, so I looked to diversify my interests. I explored real estate and finance as possible alternative businesses and discovered an interest and passion in futures trading. This is what I ultimately choose as a second source of income.
Initially, I imagined that day trading would be the ideal profession: no customers or staff, no inventory or rent and the possibility of unlimited income. And, more importantly, it presented me with the opportunity to work anywhere....from the privacy of my home or from the balcony of a hotel room overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Unfortunately, I knew little about the pitfalls of day trading for a living. To begin with, I spent countless hours reading books, studying charts and conducting research in an effort to become a profitable trader. Six years later, and after the loss of several hundred thousand dollars, my efforts finally resulted in the development of a highly profitable strategy.
This strategy is primarily based on technical analysis and was developed for ES E-Mini S&P 500 Futures contracts from CME Group but it also works in many other financial instruments such as Stocks (NYSE), Bonds, Currencies(Forex Spot), Commodities (Gold and Crude Oil From CME GROUP,Globex,NYMEX, CBOT,Brent Crud Oil From ICE Global Markets), Options, Global Indices and CFD’s with similar high accuracy.
In retrospect, I understand that the biggest barrier to my success was the fact that I tried to learn everything by myself. An experienced mentor could have helped me avoid that painful learning experience....and saved me a significant amount of money as well as many years of frustration.
Today I am an active, and profitable, trader. As a token of appreciation for my success, I now share my tools and experience with other day traders. I believe that my knowledge and skill can help others become successful traders and, in the summer of 2010, I began to publish my realtime market signals and daily results online in order to demonstrate the accuracy of my trading strategy.
I am a buisness minded person, currently learning the dynamics of each area of the stock market. This is one of my hobbies and I plan to use the skills I am developing in every aspect of my life. My portfolio is based on stocks that I believe will succeed in the current economic climate, based on my passionate investigation.
I LOVE THE MARKET and wish to pursue a career in the stock market.
