I am mostly a daytrader engaging in both long and short bets intraday and occasionally over the short to medium term. My focus is mostly on tech stocks and more recently the shipping and offshore drilling industry. I am located in Germany and have worked quite some time as an auditor for PricewaterhouseCoopers before becoming a professional trader more than 15 years ago. During this time I managed to successfully maneuver the burst of the dotcom bubble and the aftermath of the world trade center attacks as well as the subprime crisis. My return on invested capital has been mostly good and at times reaches up to several 100% annually so I will most likely be around for some more years.
