My name is Payman Winborn. Upon graduation from college in 1999 I founded a company that distributed computer hardware. Although this was a profitable business, I did not want to focus all my resources on one avenue of success, so I looked to diversify my interests. I explored real estate and finance as possible alternative businesses and discovered an interest and passion in futures trading. This is what I ultimately choose as a second source of income.
Initially, I imagined that day trading would be the ideal profession: no customers or staff, no inventory or rent and the possibility of unlimited income. And, more importantly, it presented me with the opportunity to work anywhere....from the privacy of my home or from the balcony of a hotel room overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Unfortunately, I knew little about the pitfalls of day trading for a living. To begin with, I spent countless hours reading books, studying charts and conducting research in an effort to become a profitable trader. Six years later, and after the loss of several hundred thousand dollars, my efforts finally resulted in the development of a highly profitable strategy.
This strategy is primarily based on technical analysis and was developed for ES E-Mini S&P 500 Futures contracts from CME Group but it also works in many other financial instruments such as Stocks (NYSE), Bonds, Currencies(Forex Spot), Commodities (Gold and Crude Oil From CME GROUP,Globex,NYMEX, CBOT,Brent Crud Oil From ICE Global Markets), Options, Global Indices and CFD’s with similar high accuracy.
In retrospect, I understand that the biggest barrier to my success was the fact that I tried to learn everything by myself. An experienced mentor could have helped me avoid that painful learning experience....and saved me a significant amount of money as well as many years of frustration.
Today I am an active, and profitable, trader. As a token of appreciation for my success, I now share my tools and experience with other day traders. I believe that my knowledge and skill can help others become successful traders and, in the summer of 2010, I began to publish my realtime market signals and daily results online in order to demonstrate the accuracy of my trading strategy.
As a former Naval Officer (German Navy), I am working as a Headhunter today. Whenever I find the time, I love to "battle" the markets and "hunt" for good trading opportunities... - I prefer the US markets as they allow me to prepare for action during the day. On seekingalpha I hope to find a good interchange of trading ideas.

During the 1994 Peso crisis, I started an e-mail newsletter. This followed from my comments to Mexican interest groups and list servers on the rapidly expanding Internet. The newsletter became a copyright publication : "The Mexican Commentary." This had a limited paid subscriber base but has been discontinued.
Robert Rubin was criticized for the Mexican bailout from the U.S. Treasury but I commented that the US taxpayer benefited greatly - at that time borrowing with T-bills at 5% and lending it to the Mexicans at 10%. The Mexican economy was expected to collapse but I continued to follow the economic developments in my newsletter covering employment, interest rates, exchange rate of the peso and stock prices. This led to one of my subscribers hiring me full time at the US Department of Justice/Immigration and Naturalization Service/HQ Office of Intelligence. My comments then became restricted to an internal Government publication "Borderline."
My prior career was devoted to Agricultural Statistics 18 years with the USDA and 6 years with the EPA in the Office of Pesticide Programs.
I have since retired from Federal Government service in 2005 and currently take on consulting assignments and manage my family investment portfolios. I continue to have an interest in Mexican stocks.
I do not offer any investment advice but feel that this forum would benefit from the wealth of information that I could offer. This should not be considered investment recommendations of a personal bases because most of my readers remain anonymous to me.
I often say what I am doing in the market for my own trades - these are true and honest statements and my records are open for inspection to any responsible party on request.
Here are a couple of my original ideas:
Small Cap Tech
Rediff (REDF): Recommended buy at less than $2 in August 2010. Within 1.5 months of my recommendation it touched $6. It is currently trading at $9.39.
Demand Media (DMD): Recommended Shorting at $16 in April 2011. Stock is at $7.51 now.
Anixter recommended at $40 on july 15,2010. Gave 50% plus return in 6 months.
Terex recommended at $22 on sept 20, 2010 and Gave 70% return in next 4 months.

Doing options for years now (hopefully getting better ). Trader, Linguist, Veteran, ex-amateur athletereer. Inspired by Jim Rodgers, I, at times, dream of living the post apocalypse in style as a regal yam and melon farmer somewhere between Hakodate & Makomanai (God's Country!) Stocks I used to like include BG, NTDOY, Tata Motors, EWZ, ERJ and BHP long. Everything up for question in 2013 Observed first hand aftermath of "JPN Bubble" by living there (and Japan carry trade). For the USA, instead of Japan-style deflation, we are leaning towards painful inflation, so I own large amount of phys. silver .
