Individual trader in options and avidly follow macro economic trends, including commodities. I prefer a technical and sentiment focus with fundamentals blended in. I have traded increasingly since 1998, having my best year during the 2008 crisis. With 25+ years of corporate supply chain in the food service industry, I demonstrated strong savings and revenue enhancement for my employers. For half that time, I overlooked applying knowledge from my core competencies to benefit my own trading. A corporate takeover of a large multi-national chain employer drove me to take control of my own destiny.
