|Founder & Editor
I created this blog in 2005 while going to school @ UC Berkeley to share my interest in the stock market. I used to play poker, but after I lost interest, I started reading about the stock market. Stock trading is interesting because of how similar it is to poker. You can’t control what cards you’re dealt, and likewise you can’t control the movement of the market. Instead, you can only buy/sell/short wheras in poker you can only bet/call/fold. Just like poker, the stock market is a very simple game, but its a game that takes tremendous effort to master. I was too young to reap the riches of the first dotcom boom, but I’m patiently waiting for the next big thing.

I graduated from Florida Atlantic University and now I am attending Palmer Chiropractic College for Grad school. I started out in the market doing options and lost a lot. I was so used to gambling cause I used to play No Limit Holdem everynight. So I basically just gambled on options. I later read that 90% of options expire worthlessly. Well, I learned my lesson. I was thinking about taking my loan money and putting it in to the market but my parents would kill me. I have been doing this for a couple years now and have improved 10 fold. I took off 6 months from the market and went over everything I did wrong. Since my comeback, I have learned a lot and hopefully improved. So lets make money!
I have a degree in Economics from the University of Florida. I started following stocks around 1998 and got interested just like everyone else during the bull market. I have a “real” job with Citigroup in the Information Technology area but stocks are a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with all of you.
I am the founder of DINVESTOR. I am originally from San Jose, California and currently I am an intended premed student majoring in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley. Johns, who also attends my university, kindly asked me to be part of his The Bull Trader team in January 2006 and I gladly returned the favor to support his awesome website. Stock trading is a pastime activity for me and over the past few years I have realized that investing in stocks is a continual learning process and is an excellent way to stay on top of current events, global market developments, and personal finances while making some extra cash to reward myself in return. I consider myself a “visual trader” because my main rationale for trading stocks is based on chart pattern analysis and technical analysis. So far experience tells me that visual cues often preempt upcoming market trends and news or earnings reports. Some of my favorite stock “quotes” are “Charts don’t lie.” and “Do your DD!” Cheers and good luck to all investors.
I am currently a third year undergradute at UCLA. Majoring in Psychobiology, this stock game started out as merely a simple pastime that I started with an old friend, known to most of you only as JWU. With premed dreams at heart, the stock marketA always seemed to be too much of a gamble, surely something that could not generate a viable career. But as time passed, and as I began to understand the world of trading, many of the ideas I had held steadfastly to in my head began to deteriorate. Now, after three years in college, I have come to the conlcusion that this is what I want to do. Using this column as an outlet, I hope to share everything I have learned, while still furthering my education of the stock market. Lastly, I’d like to leave you with this. “Some people complain that life never gave them any chances. You are given life. You must take the chances.”
This blog started out as Future Young Millionaires in July of 2005. I started this blog to track my learning experience as I try to become a young millionaire. I really enjoy posting to this blog and I enjoy emailing my readers to discuss hot stock tips and interesting money making schemes. I was really surprised by the success of this site, so in August I decided to move off of blogspot and onto a top level domain. Thus, we adopted the site thebulltrader.com, because it really captures essence of our trading style. Within one year of its inception, The Bull Trader has emerged from anonymity to become one of the top authoritative stock blogs tracked by Technorati.
