In the late 90's I took the siries 7 exam and became a Broker. I quickly learned that I trusted few people in the industry. This was not the right career path for myself, but I did learn a tremendous amount. After a few years from the industry I went on to work for a mutual fund company. I had to acquire the siries 7 again(really easy second time around). Then went on to acquire the Advisors License and shortly after said good bye to the industry. I invest for myself and no one else.
I started writing for Seeking Alpha in early 2012. With an interest in both fundamental and technical analysis, and a strong belief that both should be used when investing, I try to incorporate both in the bulk of my articles.
My goal is to bring a fresh viewpoint to the table on the equities I cover. I'm always "learning." Never stop! I encourage readers to do the same! I believe you can learn a lot from the 30 year veterans, but even the veterans must keep an open mind to the new guy. Each remains closed minded at their own peril.
