Trading Stocks for twenty years, worked for a Stock and Options training Company. I continue to study the markets, economics, history and current affairs, putting all of the pieces of the puzzle together. Working with a Robotic Trading platform, developing trading formula's for it.
Education:Targeting English, Economics, History, Math and Political Science
Most of my working career has been spent running small businesses.
One of those businesses was the Stock Market and trading stocks, treating it as one of my businesses. As a student of the market, I do research on stocks using current software and several internet sites to compile enough information to make an educated trade.
Grew up in Horse racing, I learned how to handicap horse races at a very young age. I often would hitch a ride out to the race track as often as I could make the time. Horse racing and horses was a family hobby.
My other interest was baseball; fishing and travel.
In my articles I plan on writing more about Companies coming up on their Earnings . What Stocks to watch that are coming up on their Earnings, about thirty five days before they report, always forward looking. I want to write about my experiences, what I am finding in my research about individual Stocks that interest me the most and why. This is one thing I know from my involvement with the market is that Stock traders are emotional, they trade in basic patterns. That Earnings are a big part of what makes individual Stocks move up or down. Stocks that are profitable and showing positive results their stock price runs upward and the Companies that are not getting good results their stock price falls off, drifting lower.
I Hope you will enjoy my insight and reading my articles, and may they bring you good fortune and profit in your trading.
I am interested in all comments, so please write me.

I am an investor relations consultant with 25+ years experience steering IR strategy and outreach for over 100 companies across a range of industries. We launched Catalyst Global in early 2012 to serve as a platform for innovating the IR role to better address the radically different dynamics and needs of public companies and investors.
Catalyst's mission is combining senior level experience and counsel with targeted outreach and efficient communications to deliver real change and share price results for "smidcap" companies in today's markets. We understand relationships and credibility take time, and we root all our work in integrity, candor and a focus on ROI.
I post on Seeking Alpha to expand the reach of client and other investment stories we like - and to understand the nature of these new channels of communication. Networking ideas and working with new media is integral to the IR function - plus it's fun.
CG Focus List is a separate service we use to highlight specific investment stories brought to us by some of the really smart investors we know. Profiled companies can be clients, ex-clients, non-clients or desired clients - but they are stories that offer very attractive investment potential and commensurate risk (there's no free ride in investing!)
My posts are NOT endorsed by the Companies on which I write - client or otherwise. We believe in truth and fair play at all times, and at all costs, and gravitate to those who share that view.
I have been trading stocks actively for over 40 years. I am convinced that the playing field
has been gradually levelled over that time so that insiders no longer have the hefty adantage that they used to have. I beleive that BATS (Better Alternative Trading System) has been a wonderful additional tool for keeping track of what is going on in the US market. Also good charting program such as Worden Brothers TC2000 are very useful and reasonably priced.
