Long term buyer and holder of silver. I still have silver from when it used to be the actual US money- when it had intrinsic value. I plan to hold it and hopefully accumulate more. Began investing and charting on paper in the late 1980's (hey, a computer cost $5000 then). On Gold: it's not that I am such a die-hard gold bug, it's more that I'm a big government and Federal Reserve pessimist and realist. The 10 cent candy bars I used to buy after school in 1961 when I was 10 now cost about $1.50. I have lived through the 90% decline of the Dollar. Thank you Federal Reserve.
I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades.
My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.

I am an independent trader. I began actively trading in 2008 and my perspective is shaped by the collapse of 2008 and the incredible rally of 2009. My approach consists of seeking out fundamentally strong stocks that are unloved by the market and then assessing general market conditions to manage risk.
Outside of the markets, I enjoy playing tennis, working out, and pushing myself to conquer my fear of public speaking.
