I am a CFA level 3 candidate with a degree in business administration, finance specialty. My passion is trading which I practice independently with my own funds. I utilize both fundamental and technical analysis. I am contrarian at heart, but I like momentum strategies and easy money. That is one reason I am highly interested and invested in the biotechnology industry. I am also particularly interested in equity valuation and tactical asset allocation. I like to decipher what the investors are saying about the economy and about stocks by analyzing relative valuations and prices. I use relative value as the foundation for designing tactical asset allocation strategies and for finding value in the stock market. I intend to write more articles for SA in the comings months related to: 1) undervalued stocks, 2) macroeconomic and market behavior, 3) tactical asset allocation strategies, and 4) short term trading opportunities. I have been inactive on this website for several months due to academic commitments, but now have some more free time to create more content. I am also on StockTwits @Chris1029384756 Good luck achieving your financial goals and don't hesitate to ask me anything that might help you to do that!
Southern boy that enjoys the finer points of life. Love the markets regardless of the fact we are all in a battle against Goldman and a handful of other financial hedge banks and funds with their super computers and their unlimited capital for blowing small investors off the big boy tracks. Still with patience and due diligence we can hang in the game.
