About Me

I, like many millennials came of age around the time of the housing crisis. I Graduated high school in 2007, and went to college the next fall before I realized classroom learning wasn’t for me. However, during that time I had developed an interest for economics. I was intrigued by how policy decisions have ripple effect-like consequences – both intended and unintended.

At about the same time, there was great concern in regards to the many global debt crisis’ that had sprung about due to the expansion of central bank balance sheets across the world. As a natural contrarian I gravitated away from mainstream Modern Monetary Theorists that were touting morally hazardous and inflationary policies. I had begun to embrace hard money Austrian economics and began investing into precious metals and precious metals stocks. I had gotten into commodities stocks at the right time- even if I was too green to know what I was doing. My teeth were cut so quickly into my investing career that just 3 months after making my first actual investments into a brokerage account in February of 2010 I bore witness to the infamous Flash Crash that took place in the middle of the European Debt Crisis.

Nevertheless, I received strong mentorship from more seasoned investors and was able to gain experience as I weathered the storm. However as I came into my own I became more attracted to swing and day trading. The S&P 500 is up 200% in the last 10 years but that is assuming that you bought and held the entire time and were never shaken out of your investments by the 10, 20, or in the most recent case 30%+ dips in the market. Swing trading on the other hand offers us those types of gains in just one year as we play both sides of the market as it whips up and down along the way. Also, with a short term strategy in mind there is significantly less downside risk as you are not simply buying and holding hoping that there won’t be another financial crisis that the Fed has to save us from.

Since 2013 I have been on hiatus from the market but the future has never been brighter and I am here to stay. I am looking forward to meeting like-minded avid traders as well as building relationships and a strong community moving forward!
