I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades. My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.
