I'm a retired restaurant owner, real estate tax lien investor, and small software developer. Spent 10 years as Cost Analyst and Administrator for IT Dept of US Corp HQ of Inchcape Shipping and 2 years as a Senior Data Processor in the US SE Region for Lucent Technologies. I've been investing in stocks since mid-2009 and am the developer of the Moving Average Fluctuation Indication Algorithm (MAFIA) which is an indicator used to give 2-5 day notice of most probable MACD crosses. My trading strategies incorporate both technical and fundamental analysis. My stock positions are always long.
Since I am always the last person on any Titanic musical chair game of investment, I learned the importance of capital preservation and winning by not losing.
I have invested in Iridium, Enron, Novastar, Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and numerous companies with unethical managements. None of these companies survived their managements. Such is the power of the dark side. Survive I must, by Way of the Cavy I must. Such is the power of the meek.
