I am an independent trader. I have been trading my own money for over 20 years. I am focused on finding growth stocks that are priced like value stocks or stocks that are misunderstood or under followed. Generally, I buy stocks where I feel like my chances of losing money are low, but still offer the possibility of large gains. This almost always leads me to small and microcap cap stocks. I joined Seeking Alpha to share some of my ideas with others. I hope they are profitable. Twitter: MichiganTrader@SWMichTrader Please do your own due diligence and do not blindly buy stocks on Seeking Alpha articles alone (including mine).
Started studying charts 10 years ago during my "free" time (remember that?) - had the "aha" moment... - and keep learning from it as time passes. Social Security and 401K's aren't gonna cut it probably and nothing's getting cheaper. There is a flow in any market - we are here to monitor the flow - the roller coaster - and it's fun after you learn not to get burned. BTW - you will get burned once in a while...
