    22 year old Swede who moved to the USA 2 years ago for studies in Economics.
    I am majoring in Accounting and the goal is the CPA title and my own firm.

    Have been investing in the Swedish stock market since age 17.

    I am a long time dividends investor but from time to time I like looking into penny stocks to see if they might be a future winner.

    As for now my portfolio consists of 6 Swedish dividends stock and one penny stock.

    I'm 31, FSU grad, business owner.

    My first trade was this summer, going all in with my IRA on Netflix @55 a share. I recently sold, and now I'm looking to make some more aggressive picks.

    Hello, All. I've been a member for a while but just really getting started. I played a few pennies some years ago and came in on just the wrong side of the famous AppleRush(RSHN) that some folks made a killing on.

    My name is Nick, I'm 28 and recently married. I graduated college 5 years ago with a degree in geology and have been doing the geologist bit since then but I'm thinking of going back for an MBA or something similar to get into business/finance.

    I couldn't have picked a much better time to start investing, as I did so in January of 2009. I did well for the first 12-18 months (who didn't!), got overconfident, and starting taking more risk. Terrible idea. I lost quite a bit chasing penny stocks and chinese stocks. For the past year I've been recuperating, reading more books and slowing down with a more conservative approach. I started a Roth IRA last year and took some pointers from the Motley Fool book "Million Dollar Portfolio" and invested 1/4 in the S&P500, 1/4 in a real estate ETF, and 1/4 in a foreign markets ETF. The book suggests contributing the other 1/4 to commodities but I haven't done that yet because I believed commodities to be overvalued last year when I started investing the fund. Instead I invested the other 1/4 in CRR, which I recently sold for a tidy profit. However, I think now I am going to be diving into some ETFs with that last 1/4 with short term trades that span a multitude of disciplines, from individual sectors in the US to individual countries to individual commodities, based on overbought/oversold indicators.

    I also have a regular brokerage account which I somewhat more actively trade individual stocks.

    I'm here to learn from and bounce trading ideas off of all of you!

    Hello forum,

    I'm Josh. 20 something from Pittsburgh. Work as a financial advisor and manage some client portfolios, so I guess you can say I'm a money manager to some degree. I have a Series 7, Series 65, Series 63, and life insurance licenses. I got about a decade of trading experience which I've used to develop my own trading models.

    I hope I can add to the forum; however, I can (within reason).

    Just thought I'd make my first post an introduction post... sorry mods, I didn't see an "introduce yourself" thread anywhere.

    Anyways, I go by Makin Picks and I'm primarily a penny stock momentum trader though I'm trying to expand and learn different styles, techniques, and strategies.

    I hope to contribute and learn from these boards!

    Hello everybody!
    I am Baf, a 24 years old IT student from New Hampshire, originally from Italy. I have been following this forum for some weeks, and now that the school is done, I can focus on another one of my passions which I share with many of you, finance.
    I have been studying finance for some months right now, hoping to gain the knowledge to limit the losses and score some points. I am planning of swing trading with a little amount of money and get some experience, since where I am strong on theoretical knowledge, I lack on experience on the field.
    Good trades to everyone,
