Started studying charts 10 years ago during my "free" time (remember that?) - had the "aha" moment... - and keep learning from it as time passes. Social Security and 401K's aren't gonna cut it probably and nothing's getting cheaper. There is a flow in any market - we are here to monitor the flow - the roller coaster - and it's fun after you learn not to get burned. BTW - you will get burned once in a while...

I am a 40 something year old software engineer passionately working from home for the company I founded over a decade ago on a shoe string. Now I balance raising three terrific kids with coding and investing and brewing my own craft beer and meade. I shoot mostly from the hip on the market, a mix of a little bit of brains with a lot of dumb luck.
Hi, My name is Rich and have been playing the market for more than 25 years. It is a true passion for me. I have learned enough to be ranked in the top 3% of fund managers at "Marketocracy". The blog has evolved over the last 18 months into a site on educating my readers about the market based on my own experiences. It is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Come join me at stockmarketdouble.blogspot.com.
I have been an active investor for almost 20 years. My main focus is on high-yield stocks, particularly MLPs, and high-growth oil companies in the Eagle Ford shale. I have a portion of my portfolio allocated to short-term trading, with a focus on over-reactions to company news and directional plays on VIX-based ETFs. I am happy to answer just about any question sent my way, especially from those new to the stock market.
