I have 9 years of experience in stock trading. I like smart, rational people. I don't like people who believe to be better than others just because they've got more money (just because they WERE lucky to be BORN in a wealthy family) or just because they WISH they were better than others; wishing isn't enough; you gotta PROVE it. In the stock market there is SUPPOSED TO BE only 1 bottom line and that bottom line is "how much money can you make?". Whatever your background is, "can you make money? can you contribute to profitable strategies?" This doesn't usually happen in the "private club" of finance analysts and fund managers. I think Warren Buffett is an example for everyone, in and outside investments.
9 years of "long" trading. I could eventuall sell short as well (but not really fond of it). I've never worked for a financial institution (but I know how to deal with the market better than most poeple in the business) I don't do daytrading and I don't think I ever will.
stocks (almost exclusively US) and very rarely ETFs
NETWORKING with like-minded people and possibly, somehow getting one step closer to working as an analyst or trader for a financial institution. I'll give a present, 1/3 of my salary, to anyone who gets me an interview for those 2 jobs. It's just a way to “say thanks”. You wouldn't have to get me the job, but only the interview, ....then it's on me. For those positions I'd interview only with companies that do LONG TERM trading and therefore hold positions for 1 month to 2-3 years, or even 10 years (when appropriate). I’m also willing to consider going temporarily for an internship…. In case you get me an interview for any support role, like secretary even for daytrading companies (but wouldn't be doing any analysis/trading for them), then the reward is less.
I have 9 years of experience in stocks trading, long term. I look forward to meeting people who work for investment companies, mostly in the stock market (long term). I like people with "down to earth mentality" and common sense.
