I’m Tony. Living in Toronto, I’m a young investor who has successfully invested in stocks, commodities, and forex. Although I’m not a millionaire, I do have the opportunity to wake up every morning doing what I love – analyzing the markets and reading about world issues! It’s kind of like a fun treasure hunt, one that I’m getting paid to do (or paying to do, if I lose money *painful laugh*)!
As a kid, I loved to read. I spent my days cuddled up in my dad’s chair, flipping through every magazine or book that was in one way or another related to history (I’m a huge history buff, ranging from military to political history), economics, and investing. The more I read, the more I realized that I didn’t know! Naturally curious, I dug deeper and deeper, enrolling only in courses that interested me (besides the mandatory courses).
Along the way, I’ve been helped by numerous people, all of which deserve my gratitude. I’d have to say that my mom, by far, has been the biggest influence on me, both in my personal life and investment career. While she’s a trader (it suits her personality), I’m a longer term investor (my love for history and economics + my aversion for mathematics makes me a great investor but a poor trader).
So Why Read A Young Trader?
I started this blog as a way to record my thoughts. I find that when writing things down, I’d often be able to sort out my own thoughts and ideas. Over time, this blog morphed into a way for me to give back to society by showing other young investors how to trade. I’ve always wanted to start a charity, and seeing that I don’t have a ton of money, I thought this would be a good substitute to Tony’s Future Charity!
An unconventional investor, I don’t preach the conventional wisdom – I try to write about something new in each post that I hope will help you and your investment portfolio.
Here are my basic investment rules that I adhere to at all times. I:
- Identify the macro, long term trend.
- Never trade against the trend, even if I expect a retracement.
- Use technical indicators to determine my buy/sell price.
