I've had a 25+ year career in capital markets, derivatives and investment management. Through the '90s, I concentrated in derivatives and ran the Global Equity Derivatives Group at Chase (the group included several client driven and proprietary trading groups). I spent most of the 2000s running the research groups of two large fund of funds. For the past 5 years, I have been investing independently. I focus on event driven opportunities.
I enjoy spending time day trading and analyzing the market. I’m always looking for a good swing or day trade, but mostly I’m focused on finding stocks that will hit big and up-list from the OTC to the big boards. Basically, almost all of my portfolio is traded daily, especially considering I tend to look over multiple market segments for trades instead of spending all my time on one section. I’ve been analyzing and trading stocks for over 9 years now, and I have a strong understanding of trends, as well as the knowledge to make smart trades.
I'm a retired restaurant owner, real estate tax lien investor, and small software developer. Spent 10 years as Cost Analyst and Administrator for IT Dept of US Corp HQ of Inchcape Shipping and 2 years as a Senior Data Processor in the US SE Region for Lucent Technologies. I've been investing in stocks since mid-2009 and am the developer of the Moving Average Fluctuation Indication Algorithm (MAFIA) which is an indicator used to give 2-5 day notice of most probable MACD crosses. My trading strategies incorporate both technical and fundamental analysis. My stock positions are always long.
