I am a software engineer passionate about derivatives and equity trading. I am interested in momentum plays as well as options.
My interests include analysis and investment in Stock markets over the globe. Usually looking more into tech sector.
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.
I am retired. I was academically trained as an Institutional Economist specializing in comparative economic sytems. I am very knowledgeable about the old Soviet style command economies as well as the various types of mixed economies that currently exist.
Enterprise Software Consultant and IT Solutions Architect with over 20 years of experience in designing, building and delivering robust and efficient computer systems solutions to companies in Software, Telecom, Manufacturing, Banking, Defense industries.
Upon receiving my Masters degree in Music from Connecticut's Hartt School of Music, I took a job at a local Friendly's serving ice cream, where I perfected the disgruntled, comatose look, as seen in the photo at left. As a first-time participant in the American economy by way of fast-food, I noted the vileness and squalor into which our country was plummeting.
Now, as an SA commentator, I look forward to multiplying my earnings, once I get some, and settling down as a prime member of society, living out my remaining years in the luxury every red-blooded American deserves.
I currently live in a barn with my saxophones, watching America decline around me.
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.
