I am an independent trader. I began actively trading in 2008 and my perspective is shaped by the collapse of 2008 and the incredible rally of 2009. My approach consists of seeking out fundamentally strong stocks that are unloved by the market and then assessing general market conditions to manage risk. Outside of the markets, I enjoy playing tennis, working out, and pushing myself to conquer my fear of public speaking.

The outrageous low volatility (VIXtermination) since 2013 tells me that people are convinced that the Fed has their backs despite all the turmoil in the world.
Looking forward to the end of the Fed punchbowl and a return to markets based on fundamentals.
