Individual investor/trader since 1991. Believe in long and short term investing/ trading. Offset risk by using conservative mutual fund IRA's, both Roth and SEP, since trading losses really stink. Use online resources for dd and online discount broker. Passionate about my ideas.
Personal investor learning more about the markets everyday. I am looking for more resources to become better informed on a more timely basis on the stocks in my portfolio. Because I am relatively new to being an "active" investor I rely heavily on Seeking Alpha contributors and also on the "comments" from other members. I have learned to dig deeper on authors to see if they have their own agenda they are touting versus trying to help others build shareholder wealth.
