Retired engineer who enjoys investing
which gives me a good reason to keep up with the
world. Have core holdings in mutual funds--equity and bond,

and Roths constitute the major portion of the portfolio. Since the world markets are quite mixed, I'm more interested in a defensive position.

Investor and trader for over 20 years. Currently President and Chief Investment Officer at Passed Pawn Advisors, and Managing Partner and Portfolio Manager at Passed Pawn Capital.
Retired at age 54 (2003), now enjoying the good life. Had a stroke in '13 and lost the use of my right arm. Currently teaching myself to draw with my left hand. My work is displayed in the profile picture. All art work for sale along with several bridges and a well managed plot of swamp land.
Early in my working career, I set two goals, First, to manage my income to support my family and have a comfortable retirement, and second, to retire by my mid fifties. Along the way, I discovered that I not only enjoyed investing, but that I was rather good at it,hence, retiring at 54.
Why set these goals? With my family background, I knew I had no rich uncle. My family were coal miners, an I by luck and grace, I was the first to graduate from college.
