Behavioral Finance. Received my CFA Charter in 2014.
Multiple careers - including computer programming and energy conservation work for non-profits. Semi-retired, still doing a little consulting.
In good shape in terms of accumulation. Moving into distribution as necessary, although other income permits us to not rely completely on investment distribution at this point. Have been gradually picking up pointers from the dividend growth folks for making income investments.
I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling glacier walls and hang gliding off tall buildings to survey the best urban party spots. I can ride my bicycle up almost any incline without slowing down—the laws of physics do not apply to me. I am a talented academic, but absent-minded: I once figured out the meaning of life, but forgot to write it down. Although not a commercial success, my book “What Your Orchestra Teacher Never Told You About Double Reed Technique: The Oboe and Bassoon Player’s Guide to Dating Beautiful Women” drew enthusiastic praise from both sexes.
Private Investor - Actively manage my investment and retirement accounts.
Trading Methodology - Always looking to hit home runs while slashing singles and stealing bases. (ie I look for long opportunities (GARP) and swing trade while following the major trend. Sometimes use options to gain leverage or safety.)
Trading Frequency - Yearly, monthly, weekly and daily. Differing strategies and time horizons for different stocks and situations.
