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.
