I am Nelson Edward Montz, and I am confident enough to post my trades on Facebook for all the world to see! I trade from my plush Idaho Bunker- here in Moscow, Idaho. I call my trading facility: THE TRUE FINANCIAL CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!
I owe any success to the wonderful contributions others have given to me. I choose to give back. My trading account has supported a Christian prep school with a small 10K contribution; bought a deserving woman a 10K used car; made a way for my late Mother's 4K hearing aid; it allowed me to LIVE off my trading account for 10 years; it provided private schooling for three boys; AND the future looks bright, even though citizens and this once-great USA are struggling mightily.
I love Seeking Alpha and its many contributors. Thank you all, and Iook forward to meeting many in the near future!
Bless You, and "Godspeed" in your endeavors!
