Independent Investor; Independent Thinker. I worked for the DoD for a decade; now in private industry. I trade long and short, sometimes using pair trades. However, my specialty is Option Spreads using Calls/Puts, and various other Delta strategies. I seek "targets of opportunity" by trading (usually selling) into inflated volatility, thus taking advantage of what might be mis-priced "fear." I also use my ample free time to research investment ideas and/or short term trading opportunities, wherever they may exist. My experience includes over two decades managing eight distinct portfolios for immediate family only. If you have a trading idea and/or question, please feel free to 'PM' me.
