Having taken the "red pill" in early 2007 (with regard to our modern economic/banking/fiat system) I've slowly changed my own business plans and operations accordingly. Seeking Alpha has become my regular daily reading. Part of the continuing self-education that our modern American educational system unfortunately does not even remotely deem necessary. Slowly considering investing in stocks and bonds, cautiously and conservatively.
Trader of equities and options for over 12 years. Proprietary trading strategy involving options and biotech with a very high win to loss ratio. SMID cap biotech. Passionate about science and cooking.

Worked in telecommunications, didn't like it... Currently BCOM student.
Been investing and some trading for 5 years. Have a deep love of the markets.
Apprehensive to admit that I'm a gold bug! I've always liked gold, but only really considered for investment in the past few years.
Long term buyer and holder of silver. I still have silver from when it used to be the actual US money- when it had intrinsic value. I plan to hold it and hopefully accumulate more. Began investing and charting on paper in the late 1980's (hey, a computer cost $5000 then). On Gold: it's not that I am such a die-hard gold bug, it's more that I'm a big government and Federal Reserve pessimist and realist. The 10 cent candy bars I used to buy after school in 1961 when I was 10 now cost about $1.50. I have lived through the 90% decline of the Dollar. Thank you Federal Reserve.
