About Me:

Been investing and Trading since just before the dot bomb and learnt the best lesson I could have with Bookham Technology. If you weren't around you really need to experience a mania and the subsequent crash to get to know yourself. You may think you won't get swept up in it but you may well..It will be an expensive but invaluable lesson about greed and the "madness of crowds". Now mainly long term when short term trades work well and I stay in them. This should not be confused with those who stay in short term trades that go badly. A completely different strategy ;) I have been influenced by Robbie Burns (The Naked Trader) and Jim Slater (The Zulu Principle) in my trading style and it works for me. I look for cheap shares where there looks to be growth (GARP?) and then use TA as well as level 2 for entries. Start off with short to medium term horizon but some are kept as long term winners. The losers are my ongoing education costs. Mainly use Shares, CFDs and spread betting with occasional options selling. Trading in SIPPs ISAs and a taxable account as well as spread bet and CFD accounts. Not affiliated to any vendors, systems or books so any opinions are my own and are just that, opinions.

Investment Strategy
I trade... constantly
I tend to buy... according to my system
I hold for... a few months
I invest with... <£500k
Diversification is ... important, but not beyond 10 positions
I am really a GARP investor looking for recent momentum in a share. Fundamental research then a technical analysis view for an entry, using Level 2 to get a good price on the day. My influences are Jim Slater and Robbie Burns(Naked Trader)
