I graduated from De La Salle University-Manila, BS Applied Economics, last February, 2009, the same month that I started coming in a certain brokerage firm as a trader. I didn’t really have much trading experience back then aside from the gamble I made during the last bull market in 2007. So, for the whole February until mid-March, I was just doing some virtual trades at Citiseconline’s Virtual Tycoon. At the end of that specified period, I began to trade for real. Luckily, that was the time the market bottomed out.
So, as you can already tell, I have been trading for a little more than a year now. I base my investment/trading decisions through the use of technical analysis. I am a position trader, no matter how much I insist that I am a short-term trader. I guess my strategies would change based on current market conditions. Now that the market is performing better, I feel confident in taking a position. But if and when the market poses high risk, that's the time I begin taking short-term positions. It's not a perfect plan, but I'm working on it
