Day trader. I am 40 with a B.S. in Finance from VCU in Richmond, VA my hometown. I used to be a homebuilder for 12 years until the collapse of market and my portfolio. Trying to get it back. Have been trading stocks since I was 13, first stock was Circuit City and I doubled my lawn mowing profits from summer job, what a pity about circuit city. CEO was our neighbor too, went to school with his daughter.
