I have been in the market since 1981. I have set international records in option trading contests, as well as lost a few fortunes of my own while trading. I have written many articles for trading magazines both on and offline and have been featured in a Large Metro Daily. It really means crap though, unless you can make an Amazing Living as a Trader. Not getting by as a Trader, but makin' it; Big-time... That's where I come in. My main interests are in technical analysis of stock movements and option strategies. I have even designed a (Free) covered call excel sheet that traders use to define the best covered call strategy for themselves and/or their clients. You will find me at my computer constantly pouring over stock charts of various timeframes against various technical analysis tools that I use. I also monitor what "the crowd" watches so I can be comfortably ahead of them, as usual. I also do a mean Christopher Walken impersonation of him doing technical analysis of companies and their charts: http://stocktwits.com/WalkenTalken
