I’m a 20 year old student at Rutgers University, and have had substantial interest in all kinds of markets since I was a junior in high school. My interest started with a project on the Great Depression in history class, and that project led to an obsession. I bought my first stock (Citigroup) the day I turned 18. The timing probably couldn’t have been any worse, as I turned 18 just before the entire stock market was in free fall, and pretty much my entire investment was lost in a couple of months. I was bitter for a week or so, but the crash intrigued me and made me work harder to under stand the markets. Since than I have expanded my knowledge over a variety of fields from equities, to bonds, to options. I ...More regularly read books on investing and financial education to get everyone’s perspective, as I believe this will only help me make better investing decisions. I plan on graduating from Rutgers University in two years with a Bachelor's in Finance & Economics, and eventually pursue a Masters in Finance from New York University.
