I am the son of an Army pilot, a former chef and long time trader/market watcher. I currently write analysis and commentary for OptionInvestor.com where you can find me on Monday's and Thursdays, when I write the daily Market Wrap. OptionInvestor.com is a package of newsletters focused on using options to improve returns and increase income. I take a fundamental approach to technical trading where I keep abreast of economic events while applying them to the charts. My main focus is the SP 500 but I am not limited to that. I currently trade gold, oil, the dollar as well as the indices and stocks. I have taken a profound interest into demographics and how they are affecting market dynamics. My articles here on SeekingAlpha are the result of years of economy watching and research inspired by such.
