I have been analyzing and trading stocks for over 10 years. I have primarily studied and followed value investors like Warren Buffet. However, I also believe that technical analysis can play a role in analyzing a stock before making an investment. I have found that solid financial analysis, combined with the ability to understand current market psychology is key to investment success.
I also find the best trading spot is far away from Wall Street, my favorite place is a sunny beach in Mexico.
I am planning to form a small private equity company which will focus on activist investing and possibly buyouts of smaller capitalization companies.
