Trading is an avocation for me - one that I take seriously, and one that I consider the most difficult endeavor I have ever undertaken. I have a lot going against me as a trader. I was a Marine officer in Vietnam and fought in the Ashau with a Battalion called "The Walking Dead" ~ and so, like most combat Marines, I'm too aggressive.

I'm a Doctor (one of the Dental specialties) ~ and everyone knows they are the worse investors/businessmen. I am a perfectionist and hate to be wrong ~ so I have a tendency to want to fight the market. Overcoming these liabilities makes the prize more rewarding. I'm still a work in progress, but am making headway. I think I have a lot of good advice for new traders. If I would follow my own advice more consistently, I would be a far better trader also.
