I'm just a geeky CPA who started religiously reading the WSJ daily when I began my college stint at the University of Kansas. It's now 35 trading years later and I'm still just as excited to research and bang out trades now as when I started. I trade and invest on multiple timeframes. Extensive use of options for nearly all of my positions. Love dividends, theta and covered ES writes and trading with collars and energy MLP's and REITs. Daytrade the index/sector ETF's, volatility ETP's and options to supplement my income. Beats the hell out of chess and hugely more profitable.
I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.
