Since my retirement as a corporate trainer in 2000 I began investing and trading and am now a full-time trader trading derivatives in the Asian markets and am focusing on the Japanese market for now. I have also created an educational website on derivatives trading on stock index and stocks for novice investors and traders and non-professional full-time traders. On this site I share my knowledge, experiences and observations on derivatives trading so that newbies may use this information to enhance their learning and avoid the mistakes and pitfalls that I have made in my years of trading. Over the years I have tried all the different technical analysis and have finally settled for the basic support/resistance levels and chart patterns and I have incorporated all this into my newly found trading philosopy that trading is a battle as it is a zero sum game where if one trader wins then another trader or a group of traders will have to lose. ThereforeI apply Sun Tzu "Art of War" in my trading whenever possible.
