I am an active follower and investor in the mining sector as I believe certain commodities such as gold, zinc and others are good long-term investments. I am always looking for the obvious and not so obvious companies that may benefit from positive trends in the precious and base metals industry. I also follow a handful of biotechnology companies with innovative productions that are new to the marketplace
Investor with more than 5 years experience trading commodities, gold and silver miners, exploration companies, oil and gas, platinum and other hard assets.
The investment style is part contrarian/value and I actively seek investments in distressed sectors.

My dad began teaching me how to trade stocks when I was 6 years old and I have been off to the races ever since.
I currently manage two personal investment portfolios. One is a large cap long term outlook portfolio consisting of mainly Dow stocks. The other is more speculative, focused on small-mid cap equities and derivatives.
I am truly passionate about following the markets and love analyzing portfolios. I hate weekends and holidays because, well, the market is closed!
