I manage money for CEOs of small private companies; for white and blue collar workers of large publicly-traded companies and for the small private companies themselves.
4 years of full trading experience trough the most volatile market in recent history taught me how to beat the market consistently by taking opportunities of the market disruptions that the FED has created, I focus mainly on sectors which are sensitive to changes in the 10 year treasury such as homebuilders, emerging markets and precious metals, In addition, I placed a small amount of my portfolio to highly speculative trades which depend on political decisions in Washington such as FNMA and AAMRQ.
A self made future millionaire, 1/100th the way there. . .
Played the market extremely mediocre in the past, high tolerance to risk.
Have a good idea of all the pitfalls investing brings but want more, even if the bus comes every ten minutes. addict.
Not much to say: I am a retiree who can at last be an almost full time investor, not quite a day trader but a short term trader. Not because I think that this will make me richer as a "real" investor, that keeps it's long positions for months or even years! It's just more fun.
A new position per day is healthy :-)
I live in Canada, and the TSX contains a terrible percentage of stocks that pollute and/or endangers the native population's health (mining, oil sand), I never buy them but wait till some of those are ready to short. And then yes I am happy.
Am I too pessimistic? I always do better when I short.
But this does not mean that I am only a shorter, not at all.
Very conservative with my RSSP, I love to risk a little more with two other not too rich accounts, one of them being in USD.
Trading is not my only "hobby", I am a pretty good dressage rider, and I love gardening and caring for older persons.
And as you can see, I love to write, even if English is only my third language.
