30 year old health care specialist with a healthy sense(so I keep telling myself on a daily basis) of humor that has been actively trading since 2001 and realized in May 2009 that the U.S. equity markets are rigged and probably have been, when deemed necessary, for a hundred years. Stopped investing in U.S. equities because if our government can manipulate it up for their selfish reasons, why can't they drop it to near zero for other selfish reasons. I refuse to play that game anymore. Life is waaaaaaaaaaaay too short. Covered my shorts at around 1055 at the beginning of the most recent dollar down/asset up orgy. Thought I would initiate a new short position around S+P 1175/NAZ 2500, but B. Gross betting for another round of extensive QE put the kibosh on those plans for now. Now I just sit back, gold coins in one hand and Orville Redenbacher in my other and shake my head hourly thinking about the conundrum our country is in and how there WILL BE NO easy way out.
