Author has a bachelors degree in computer science and passed Uniform Investment Adviser Law exam (Series 65). All the investment and finance related knowledge (or lack of it) that the author has gained over the years is self taught. Don't be fooled by that. Like everybody else in the field, the author gets humiliated by the market all the time. If you are Seeking Alpha's Pro subscriber and find author's performance results impressive, you couldn't be more wrong. It's mostly luck and the luck does not favor anyone forever. Do not trade based upon anything written or spoken by the author including articles, instablog entries or comments here on seekingalpha or elsewhere. Do your own research. If you loose money after acting upon anything mentioned in author's writings/words or user's comments on it, you alone are responsible. Having said that, if you happen to make money and "voluntarily" decide to share your profits with the author, you are more than welcome to do so, just send the author a message and the author will respond with the address to receive the check :-) Happy investing !!
