I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades.
My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.

I love to learn. Right now I'm trying to learn how to make the most out of a very small portfolio. My biggest inspiration is Warren Buffet. While I primarily try to be a value investor and look for long term results, I do not discount the power in technical investing.
In a perfect world, I think a value approach should be the method for selecting a company, and a technical approach should be used for figuring out when to buy and sell in that company.
I believe that investing can be simple. I do not think that means it is easy, but I think that once you have invested to effort to research and find quality opportunities, and have a systematic way to handle new information, you can simplify your investment process.
Doing the initial due diligence on a company would be similar to building a car, very difficult and time consuming. But once that car is built, maintaining it is relatively easy, and so to can investing be easier once it's established in a sound base.
