Preferred market analysis

Purely technical, including moving averages and volatility indicators to name a few.  I look at fundamentals only during major events.

Trading Style

I believe that consistency in the long term can only be maintained through systematic trading.  I trade short (from minutes) to short/medium term (up to a week) and use technical indicators to be either long or short the market within a defined portfolio of assets. Position size is managed on a dynamic basis and is fully systematic.

“Give me a lever and a place to stand and I shall move the earth.”

This is Archimedes’ concept of leverage, using a lever and fulcrum, that applies equally well to today’s concept of financial leverage.
