Introduction to

Welcome to As the name implies, I've executed nearly 10,000 transactions during my trading career.

During my 21 years of trading, I've won some (60%) and I've lost some (40%) and I hope I can share my experiences, regardless of the outcome, to educate you on some of the things I've learned over the years.

As you follow my blog, you'll see how much I love the water and I often will use boating terms as metaphors for trading. If you follow along you'll need to interpret the sea conditions, nautical charts and weather forecasts and how they impact my heading and course. Here are a few of the interpretations:
  • Ticker Symbol = Boat or ship or vessel
  • Not Invested = At the dock
  • Symbol Purchase = Leaving the dock or port as in set sail, cruise or voyage
  • Trade Strategy = The course, heading or direction and coordinates the boat will be taking at sea
  • Distance = How much I am investing. The more I invest, the further from the dock I go.
  • Symbol Hold Time = The number of days or months at sea
  • Symbol Sale = Returning to the dock or port
  • Stock Market Direction = Tides or Current
  • Stock Market & Economic News = Weather
It would make me very happy if I can help you make or save money while investing. I am not a financial adviser, I am not licensed and will never claim to be an expert. I've just traded a lot!

Fair winds and following seas!
