A full time trader based in Australia. I trade special situations - mergers and acquisitions, project and other announcements, cap raises etc. I use these events to gain entry positions, and often to decide when to close as well. I also trade these positions on my macro view to coincide with the most likely direction of the market. I'll happily hold longer term positions that coincide with the direction of the market, but prefer to only daytrade against the market direction. So I'm basically a chicken that likes to surf!
