Born in Czechoslovakia. Stary Kozel translates to "Old Goat". Retired from IBM. Background in math, sciences, published some technical papers (IBM) that involved some statistics. Will be 70 years old in June 2012. My sport is rowing using my concept 2 machine. In pretty good physical shape. Like to use technical analysis. Fibonacci works!
Software engineer by profession (B.Sc Comp. Sci, Applied Maths, M.Sc Information Technology), journeyman trader/investor with quant leanings. Interested in quantitative, algorithmic & statistical approaches to the markets as well as analysis and application of global macro themes and more traditional approaches (value and growth investing.) Particularly like options as a versatile vehicle for expressing a view and positioning oneself in the market, and particularly short premium/volatility strategies under periods of elevated IV as this tends to put probability on your side.
