I worked on Wall Street as a Systems developer and Money Manager. I run a private equity fund as a hired gun. I currently work with a broad base of private funds. I am very selective in whom I except as a client. My services are normally not open to the general public due to the secure nature of what I do. I extract large sums of money out of the capital markets on a daily basis. If your interested you can send me a private message and we can discuss the arrangements. I generally don't discriminate based on account size. However this is not for everyone. SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY!!!
Building wealth intelligently and patiently is the most logical and tested route to financial independence.
That is my plan and so far, so good!

His combination of a background in medical sales and as a full time trader for the last ten years give him a unique prospective in how to navigate the treaterous waters that is the biotech sector.

I started following the stock market as a freshman in high school. Since then, my interest in the stock market has evolved into a passion of mine, something that I plan on turning into a great career.
For the most part, I am self-taught via books, blogs, and real-life experiences. I have been trading real money for almost 4 years now. I trade primarily stocks and stock options, with an average holding time anywhere from a day to a week. All of my trades revolve around technical analysis, as timing is nearly everything these days. I do follow market fundamentals, but because my holding periods are often very short, such views often take the backseat in my trading, serving more as a general snapshot of market trends than anything else. I always use stop losses. And only "losers average losers," as iconic trader Paul Tudor Jones famously has posted above his office desk.
I am 21 and will be interning at SMB Trading in NYC this summer. My goal is to end up on a trading desk somewhere on Wall Street after I graduate. When I'm not trading, I can be found snowboarding, playing golf, and traveling to Indio, CA for the Coachella music festival, those three epic days in April.

On the Road from Samaria
When they manipulated the stock market,
I remained silent;
I was making money and felt superior to the crowd.
When they silenced their critics,
I remained silent;
I was self-righteous and felt they got what they deserved.
When they came for the blue collar workers,
I did not speak out;
I enjoyed my superior social status and the cheap consumer goods.
When they came for my neighbor's possessions
I remained silent;
I was afraid and jealous and glad to see him brought down.
When they grew richer and more powerful
I accepted their lies in silence;
I wanted to gain their favor and be one of them.
When they came for me,
and sent me to a camp as a useless eater
I reaped what I had sown.
On the Road from Samaria, Jesse
