I'm Steven Chase, battle-scarred trader and investor since my first (dreadful) investment in "Iomega" back in 1995. I am the Managing Partner of Rosemarkie Capital Partners LLC. In another life I wrote and managed a small cap newsletter which received praise from Barrons. Further, I am a Director of Software Development at a firm in Northern Virginia. I find story stocks, invest, ride the trend, and then get off. I've traded stocks, options, futures, commodities and written automated trading systems.
