In the fall of 2000, my Merrill Lynch broker told me they were still buying wacks of Celestica at $77. I knew that was nuts. I left M.L. and opened my own trading account that winter and never looked back. 5 years ago I retired at age 52. Now I support myself with my trading profits. I only trade stocks and ETFs. Quick scalps, short swings, position pyramiding with prudent use of margin.
I never let a reduction in risk go wasted without an equal or greater increase in exposure. Never listen to convention. MyLifeMyTerms!
