I am 61 and have only been trading stocks for the last 10 yrs. I retired from a factory. I play lots of golf in the summer and lots of pool and billiards in the winter. I spend about 4 hours a day on investing and enjoy the many different environements and philosophies this has led me to explore. I am definitely a blue collar plumber and not an artist. This has led me to the technical side of trading ("Timing the Trade" is my favorite method). TFNN and FinancialSense are my two favorite internet sites.
