I do not actively trade anymore but I invest (actively) my wife's 401K and mine. I am also into gambling and risk management as I have a strong background in that. I am not a great trader nor am I a great teacher I would however offer a pro bono service to any newbie on this forum. I will ask nothing in return except maybe that you do the same when you hit it big and become seasoned and successful. I will not tell you what method, market or venue to follow but I can answer questions, offer support in terms of psychology of trading and risk management. That is the line I draw, I will never offer specific advice on anything because I am not a broker and it is a free service. My background: I have traded on the floor of the CBOT (I had the options badge and IMAX (Dow index). later I moved to NYC and traded with ETG (Robert Kanter personally cajoled me into joining his company at the infancy of his business). I am now semi retired from the active trading and pursue other activities. I have written 3 books on the markets and now I have a small publishing business.
