I am mostly a daytrader engaging in both long and short bets intraday and occasionally over the short to medium term. My focus is mostly on tech stocks and more recently the shipping and offshore drilling industry. I am located in Germany and have worked many years as an auditor for PricewaterhouseCoopers before becoming a daytrader almost 15 years ago. During this time I managed to successfully maneuver the burst of the dotcom bubble and the aftermath of the world trade center attacks as well as the subprime crisis. My return on employed capital has been mostly good and at times reaches up to several 100% annually so I guess I will be around for some more years.
