i am a software engineer, self taught stock trader, i've been trading for 4 years with mixed success. i began trading gold stocks because i found a friend that i trusted and learned how to trade from his sage advice. i like to use my own TA to enter trades in the PM sector, choosing stocks that are advised from people i trust who've done the fundamentals on those companies. i've been applying my own fundamental, technical and sentiment analysis to technology stocks with some pretty good success over the last year. looking forward to sharing trading ideas.
As a researcher and technical writer, I frequently write for SeekingAlpha where I present my bullish or bearish case on a stock that I own or sell short. I have worked in the Canadian financial industry (fully licensed, providing services to high net worth individuals and families).
My interests cover a wide variety of subjects and greatly influences how I assess a business. I use technical analysis, literary analysis, a computer scientist's perspective, an understanding of psychology and sociology, marketing, history, and more when making my assessments.
