I am an undergraduate student here in the UK studying Economics and Finance. I have built my knowledge up from scratch by trawling the internet, reading books and understanding the minds of some of the greatest investors to date. I have been investing for almost a year now, giving me some invaluable experience into stock market psychology. I peer into the markets very much from the point of view of an outsider, which I think can give me an advantage at times. It often leads to a thought process perhaps untouched by conventional investment approaches. I predominantly base my investment decisions on fundamental analysis and I rely on technical indicators to guide my hand upon entry and exit. This has proven to be a valuable combination especially for value-type investments where mistiming can prove expensive. I remain sceptical of investments opportunities which are solely underpinned by technical analysis. I look for stocks which have something compelling about them, coupled with strong to exceptional management to lead that company along this path less-travelled. I am willing to take positions in the riskiest of stocks if I believe these are in place, providing the fundamentals are adequate. My strategy largely targets capital gains and I am less interested in employing my capital to generate an income from it. I tend to invest with the intention of holding for a year plus, with respect to the fundamentals remaining in tact.
