Recently: Learning how to play options/warrants. Just another retail trader from Europe seeking for more knowledge about markets and stocks in general. My lessons so far: 1) "Never follow the trend" - You will just get ripped off by the big sharks. 2) "Expect the unexpected" - Especially during QRs and product presentations. 3) "Be patient" - So far 90% of my judgement was correct long term. 4) "Accept the game rules" - Hedge funds and other large institutional investors influence the markets in their favor, not in yours. 5) "Don't hold onto your losses in defiance. Reflect your judgement." - It is never wise to love your stocks. You want to earn money, not to sport a tattoo of your favourite band. I consider myself conservative in terms of risk management and look closely to P/Es and book values. I consider the following stocks long: $BBRY, $BMW.DE, $EBAY, $TM, $V I monitor: $AMZN, $AAPL, $FB, $HLF, $INTC, $JCP, $LNKD, $NFLX, $NVDA, $QCOM, $TSLA

I actually own an iPhone 5, but I'm not a fanatic boy, so... go BlackBerry!!
I manage my own portfolio of stocks and real estate.
I only buy what I know and I am either in a stock or not, i do not short.

I consider myself a full time trader. I like volatility in the stocks I play and prefer to day trade shares. If things don't go my way, I move to plan B and hold stocks for no more than a month. I also like to play Options. Still a newbie so execute straight calls/puts. No straddles for me yet.
My dad began teaching me how to trade stocks when I was 6 years old and I have been off to the races ever since.
I currently manage two personal investment portfolios. One is a large cap long term outlook portfolio consisting of mainly Dow stocks. The other is more speculative, focused on small-mid cap equities and derivatives.
I am truly passionate about following the markets and love analyzing portfolios. I hate weekends and holidays because, well, the market is closed!
"Much more than we let philosophies guide our lives, we allow obsessions to drive them; and there is no doubt which has been the great driving obsession of the last one hundred and fifty years. It is money." - John Fowles, The Aristos (1964)

I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades.
My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.
