10 years long term investing (buy and hold and writing calls), with dipping my toes into futures here and there, while collecting some data. Had been day-trading more actively for last 6 months, since now I have time to actually watch my positions throughout the market hours.
Long term investing wise I look into fundamentals and hedge / create additional income by writing options. Futures I'm still trying to learn, and had most success daytrading with the daily trend, entering on the counter rallies/dips, targeting 2-3 ES points.
Pretty much trade US markets, using IB as a broker.
Patching kernels with one hand, debugging stack traces with the other, I'm an old school coder and IT consultant. Professionally I had been using C/C++/Java, personally I like Lisp and C++ the most.
