I'm a trader who trades both short-term and long-term. I started my career as a day-trader for a trading firm, but then turned to longer time frames and went on my own to manage my portfolio.
I use technical analysis as well as fundamental analysis in my research.

Long a buy and hold investor, I now believe that buy and hold has to be re-evaluated in a world of ever increasing, instant information and huge gyrations in markets all over the world.
A value investor at heart, I anchor my portfolio with conservative funds and blue chip dividend stocks, but have enjoyed great returns by utilizing a portion of my portfolio on microcaps, cleantech and new technology stocks.
That change in sentiment resulted in a 471% return over two years.
