Greetings to all, and welcome to this, our third interview with interesting ET traders. With the emphasis on TRADERS. I asked Anekdoten to speak with us because Razor values his advice highly, and because Anekdoten has a new mentoring thread in Journals with brisk readership: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=99283 First some disclaimers. Anekdoten is not me. I do not believe that I know him from any previous incarnations of his, if any. I have only corresponded with him to solicit his participation in this thread. I have read only sparingly in his posts, and I do not know what to expect here any more than you do. But I DO know how to read a post to tell if a person TRADES, and this guy DOES. So, to begin, Anekdoten, thank you for being willing to participate. If you read any of Razor's interview, you know what to expect. I will begin with some background questions, always being careful not to ask anything too personal or proprietary. Then I will progress to the hard questions at the core of being a trader that I think ETer's wrestle with all the time. Will you tell us a bit about yourself in generalities, like your age, nationality or geographic location, years trading, educational interests, profession other than trading, whether you support yourself solely by trading, and anything else about yourself that you would care to share?
