I am an independent stock analyst that has been hunting for the best bargains for as long as I can remember. My academic background is in economics, technology, pharmaceuticals and biotech. I am most interested in the macroeconomic and microeconomic factors that impact the technology and pharmaceutical sectors. In my free time, I enjoy traveling abroad and learning about other cultures.
I am 64 and I am an active Trader in the Equity and Option markets. I bought my first shares of stock (4 shares of VMC) at age 10. I have and continue to use a combination of both Fundamental and Technical analysis. I specialize with Pivot Points & Technical Analysis Crossovers.
