I'm an individual investor. I manage my family assets. I'm a DIY kind of person when it comes to investing. I have strong interest in the markets and have been following the developments in the economy and the markets over the years. I've dabbled in trading stocks and options in the past enough to know that market timing does not work in the short term. These days, I operate at a portfolio asset allocation level, focusing more on tactical allocation of assets rather than individual securities selection. I'm very risk averse and thus gravitate towards achieving the best risk adjusted returns. I mix various uncorrelated strategies that are relatively low risk. More active trading is done on satellite holdings of the portfolio while the core remains invested. I strongly believe in the MPT and investing in passive index funds and ETFs. Only exception to the indexing approach is in the fixed income space where I look for alpha generating fund managers. I also believe in the Fama-French 3 factor model but I find myself just getting equities exposure using a SP500 or an equal weight index fund.

I am a former financial communications programmer, turned full-time investor. I began investing in the mid-1990s, looking for a way to achieve early retirement. (A goal in which I have succeeded, if you don't consider full-time investing a job.) I took a scientific, experiment-based approach rather than a studious one. I feel that this approach, combined with my extensive programming work in financial markets and directly with traders has given me uncommon contrarian insight into what really drives market dynamics.
To that end, my articles will center around stocks and their derivatives because that's where I have the most experience (over 20 years). I may occasionally comment on currencies, where I believe I have a sound academic knowledge, but less trading experience.I will always refer to a company by name or some abbreviation thereof. By contrast, I will refer to the stock a company issues by its ticker symbol. I think it can be important to differentiate between the two.
I am self employed in the jewelry manufacturing industry. Proud father of two children and reside in sunny San Diego. Looking to assist my income and retirement through various investments.
