After following the markets for years, I started actively managing my portfolio in 2010. Plenty of misteps and a few victories have brought me to the point of wanting to share my experiences and gather feedback from this community. I'm still learning the more advanced strategies for options and currently investigating futures trading, I want to bring my perspective to the investing world and hopefully generate some alpha along the way. I tend to focus on a few names at a time to determine their trading patterns before intitating anything. I've learned that patience is a virtue and to not rush into trades. There are always more opportunities though I still struggle with "the trade that got away" syndrome on my darker days. I hope anyone reading my articles is able to get some valuable information out my opinions and experience, and maybe a chuckle once in a while.

I spend most of my time in Taiwan. This can make trading a bit troublesome, time-difference (+ 13hrs), air-travel (14.5 hours over the Pacific) and all. On the flip-side, this lifestyle automatically teaches patience and discipline. Being away from the Wall-Street noise simplifies my trading tendencies, and minimizes the need for greed. I also truly believe it helps me hone my skills at identifying sincere market opportunities.
I'm probably here for the same reason as you - to chat with the SA community and to share my trades/ideas.
