I'm a trader who trades both short-term and long-term. I started my career as a day-trader for a trading firm, but then turned to longer time frames and went on my own to manage my portfolio. I use technical analysis as well as fundamental analysis in my research.

I am a semi-retired Systems Engineer and Project Manager of Spaceborne Remote Sensing and Weather Instruments which I have been designing building and testing for 37 years. I have worked as a technician, staff engineer, department manager and project technical director for large aerospace companies and well as as an independent contractor and most recently as an employee of a small contracting/consulting company directly supporting NASA, NOAA and NIST projects. I have a degree in Physics and completed undergraduate coursework in business administration before switching to physics.
I have been self managing my portfolios since late 2008. I have multiple 401Ks, IRAs, a SEP and an after tax brokerage account. These accounts are with Vanguard, Fidelity and Charles Schwab. I rolled a pension with a 5 year payout period (60 equal installments) into an IRA from Dec 2008 - Nov 2013.
The present 2016 total portfolio value is over 2 times my total pension rollover amount. My 401K and IRA investments are a mixture of Foreign, Domestic and Bond mutual funds as well as Foreign and Domestic pure growth and dividend growth stocks in accordance with my portfolio "business" plan.
My annual dividend income is nearly enough to cover all of our living expenses now. While my dividend income is running about 2 years behind my plan of achieving 80% of my 2008 income by the end of 2014 my average total return is within 1% of the S&P 500 over the past 6 years as of Sep 2016.
