Started investing, or do you call it trading, in 1976. Evolved a great interest in markets as a direct result of them testing and challenging me. I have read, studied and experimented a lot, changing my strategies as I found better ones. The evolution has not stopped; I am still challenged and improvising. New ideas, anyone?
