Overall I am a conservative investor with a diversified portfolio. As a sideline I gamble on single positions for a short-term gain. I hunt for bargains especially in Tech as that is my home turf. I do this normally (but not always) for a day trade before escaping back to cash. My specialty is the technology sector. I am not very knowledgeable overall in market economics. I am learning how to use options for shorting, and margin trading for short term call bets.
