I am undergraduate student majoring in biotechnology and minoring in finance as well business administration.
As a biotechnology major, I have excellent capacity to understand biotechnology related companies, especially the nature of their products. My financial background includes my role as co-portfolio director for the Financial Management Association - a student association.
For the most part, I am a self thought investor who thoroughly enjoy the adventure that is investing. I have thought myself from knowing nothing about finance to investing in the stock market and also trading commodity futures.
After two years of learning from the Seeking Alpha community, I think now is the time for me to do my part and contribute to this awesome community.

I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
A term I use for the general public MIDDLE CLASS. We are the financially uneducated, unexposed to the stock market and financial investments. Most of us don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. One woman thought it was 70 ft. tall! WOW!
I for one, think we should start teaching our kids financial responsibilities in schools, at an early age. How about a REAL education for once.
Why we need classes like home eck is beyond me. Cooking & sewing?? Read the box & microwave it! I for one support a small tax on investment income to support financial education in public schools. Could help save America.
I'm coming to the game late, so I'm quite aggressive towards growth.
My thoughts on the fiscal cliff?? Shove ur scare tactics where the sun don't shine!!
As for investing, I shoot from the hip. I go with my gut. Common sense goes along way. I don't buy hype. EPS what? What ticker is that?
HISTORY; 20 yrs. prototype machinist. 12 yrs. construction labor, management, owner.

MTR Investors Group was founded in mid 2008. Since that time our primary goal is to provide powerful and profitable investment research tools to stock and option investors/traders. We do not provide buy or sell recommendations on any stock, etf, or other investments. We simply provide powerful tools for stock and option investors and traders.
The following are the primary tools we provide (we also provide economic models and advanced charting):
I. Expert Option Search
Our Credit Spread. Iron Condor, Covered Call and Cash Secured Put screener is one of the most powerful tools we provide to the individual investor. Powerful features such probability of assignment, downside protection, and many others. Our screener helps option traders make the best decision possible when writing Covered Calls, Naked Puts, Credit Spreads, and Iron Condors.
Many investors use our option screener to monitor a long term portfolio and select the best covered calls to sell on their portfolios.
Option Writers/Sellers use our option screener to find options with the highest probability of expiring worthless.
II. Stock Miner
Stock Miner is use to analyze stocks from a monthly and weekly historical performance. We use Stock Miner for weekly and monthly trade setups.
III. Stock Market Scout (SMS) & Stock Market Level (SML)
We use SMS as a model to indicate allocating cash to an index ETF (such as SPY) by going long on Green, cash on Yellow, short on Red (or stay in cash). We use SML to indicate if the market is overbought or oversold. This is not a recommendation to buy or sell SPY.

As an independent trader, I focus on tradeable advice across a wide range of financial products and markets. After several years of short-term trading I now find the real challenge is to take a trade guided by macro views and only pick those trades that fit my trading personality. As a Psychologist I see the investment and trading world as a mirror of mass psychology and sentiment. Any ideas expressed are solely for educational and informational purposes.
