Not much to say: I am a retiree who can at last be an almost full time investor, not quite a day trader but a short term trader. Not because I think that this will make me richer as a "real" investor, that keeps it's long positions for months or even years! It's just more fun.
A new position per day is healthy :-)
I live in Canada, and the TSX contains a terrible percentage of stocks that pollute and/or endangers the native population's health (mining, oil sand), I never buy them but wait till some of those are ready to short. And then yes I am happy.
Am I too pessimistic? I always do better when I short.
But this does not mean that I am only a shorter, not at all.
Very conservative with my RSSP, I love to risk a little more with two other not too rich accounts, one of them being in USD.
Trading is not my only "hobby", I am a pretty good dressage rider, and I love gardening and caring for older persons.
And as you can see, I love to write, even if English is only my third language.
I am a paramedic. I am not an analyst, I am not a financial adviser, I cannot predict the future, nor am I privy to any insider information. My only intention is to provide retail investors with the science and to clear up some of the misinformation spread by everyone with internet access.
I follow the biotech industry closely and usually target developmental stage oncology treatments. Companies that seek to cure and treat disease garner most of my interest, as they have delivered tremendous returns for me.
I also keep an eye on developing trends and emerging markets that I believe show large upside growth potential. Commodities and new technologies make up the majority of my current investment portfolio.

Investment philosophy is to first determine the maximum loss, and invest accordingly. Like many value investors, we prefer to invest in stocks with the highest dividend yields, and highest EPS growth potentials. Telecommunication and energy stocks in emerging markets are among the favorites.
Seeking Alpha offers a great opportunity to become a part of a strong finance network. Based on extensive quantitative analysis, in any market, going short is risky. Statistical analysis shows that technical indicators work only if they are strong enough to convince the majority of the investors. Do not buy a stock at the top, do not sell a stock at the dip.
