Check out my record of Seeking Alpha recommendations here: https://www.tipranks.com/experts/ptsd-trader 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.
I am a former small business owner, with an interest in farming and agriculture. I live in a mid-western city. Currently trying to invest what's left of my business equity and recapture my losses of the great recession. At 49 years old I'm trying to curb my naturally aggressive investment style so I don't get destroyed again during the "next" downturn. I find SA interesting but still trying to sift through the huge volume of data and opinions to find investing success and peace of mind.
Started investing in 2007 by means of mutual funds. It was 2014 when I finally arrived to the conclusion that there must be a better way of investing than using mutual funds, so I started buying individual stocks. It did not help at all that oil crashed almost immediately after I restructured my portfolio. I am still recuperating since then, and try to stay optimistic. In the meantime I learned a lot about the stock market and investing (mainly due to SA), and hope for my portfolio to show some good gains sometime down the road.
