Retired, 48, been making my own financial decision since I was 17. Every day, for the rest of my life, I will be a recovering Merrill Lynch customer. Proudest Financial Moments: Personal Best return on equity: 20/1, Leap Puts on Citi & GE, closed in late 2008 Personal best adjusted for time: Shorted FNMA Preferred S in late August 08 - closed position 13 days later. 75% return - in NINE business days. (I'll never manage THAT again, not even close - not if I live to be a thousand . . . ) Managed a modest positive savings rate in '08 (2%), despite being retired & making all my living from investments, in a year when most investments got slaughtered. Wonder if I can do that again . . . ?

Individual investor and trader invest and trade for myself and family members. Some stocks I hold long (trying to ignore noise), others short trades long or short, try to evaluate each for it's best potential. Have only been full-time 5 yrs...still such a tremendous amount to learn!! My father has been investing for 60 years and is (trying !!) to teach me as much as he can. If you were to ask me who i admire most in the world--it is my father!
I have so much to learn--and welcome any and all the help you can give me!!
I like tech stocks, high div stocks, MLPs, ETFs, energy stocks, foreign stocks (china, india, brazil esp), mining, but will look at anything that looks profitable....am attracted to high growth and small caps, (when appropriate), am intimidated by healthcare stocks, biotechs...so much can go wrong and i don't know enough about them..
Ok, sorry to ramble on.....

I am a busy surgeon with a particular interest in personal finance and investing. My father, a retired financial advisor, taught me discipline and the power of dividends and compound interest. I do not feel it is necessary to employ expensive, self-motivated brokers or managers to invest one's money.
A 1991 reading of a book on technical analysis and the Austrian school of economics eventually led Jason Farkas, CMT to Elliott Wave International (http://www.elliottwave.com/wave/sa).
Prior to joining EWI, Jason worked for 14 years as a futures, options, and equity trader as well as a technical analyst and advisor. Jason is a Chartered Market Technician, with a background in finance, accounting and quantitative methods. He has been tutored by some of the best investment minds, including legendary trader Dick Diamond.
A triathlete and Phoenix native, Jason is an avid student of markets and market psychology, with a keen interest in proper position-sizing and risk controls, which help to differentiate gambling from speculating in investment markets.
Jason writes the Weekly Insight, and contributes other commentary, which is a component of the end of day Currency and Interest Rate Specialty Services (http://www.elliottwave.com/wave/ssewi). Each Friday we offer a short update on something interesting that is occurring in the currency and interest rate markets. The unique perspective offered by the Elliott Wave Principle allows for a refreshing change to traditional economic analysis. Topics covered range from central bank/government actions to Socionomics and on to inflation/deflation.
