Stewie said...

Blue said...

I'm impressed you've been trading so long and I'm only 1yr. older than you. What a nice lifestyle you have man. This is how life should be. Much respect you "handsome devil".

BD. i have been trading since i was 21 years old. Since the dotcom era. Too bad i was small fish back then. The easist $$$$ ever was made back then. trading in college in between classes. Students always asked what i was doing. I told them i was trading. They didn;t really understand what it was. lol.
Buying AOl, YHOO, BRCM etc etc. That's why i have a love affair with MOMO stocks, it's the first stocks i have ever traded and i understand the psychology behind it. i was a finance major in college. I wasn;t that great of a student but i knew i always wanted to trade. I borrowed $500 from my mom and traded it to $2000 in one year, after that i was hooked for life! Tons and tons of good and bad trades and lessons along the way. Got a job as a broker at Morgan Stanley. I started a hedge fund with one of my Morgan Stanley buddies. We ran a $3million fund for 3 years and we called it quits and now i manage his and my account together. My biggest learning lessons came by watching the dotcom bubble burst while i was at Morgan. A lot of trading clients i had blew up massive accounts in a matter of months and i learned that to survive trading, you need to be both long/short technical trader and never hold a bias to either side.

that's my story in nutshell.

That's a great story Stewie. Blue is my brother, he's not BlueDog.

I laughed my ass off in Ironman when they had Cramer's Mad Money scene. I was the only guy in the whole GD theater laughing. It seems people are clueless about stocks, because the market is a fear generator.

Our capital markets are IMO the best non-labor money making opportunities in the world, for small fries like us.

BTW, I think you're a sexy bitch in black. Next time wear yellow, LoL.

HPT said...

I like the story stewie. Nice to put a face with a name. You look really young to have been a broker and run a hedgefund, but mad props for doing so. I can see that you've got a lot of experience in trading in many areas. I use to trade in college in between classes too. Looking back, I think it was a bad choice because instead of studying for school, I was studying charts and stocks. I started out swing trading biotech stocks. Somehow I became a futures trader.

Stewie said...

hi HPT. People always tell me that i look and 'act' way younger than my real age. hahaha! I love that! Stay young forever baby! Playing tons of soccer probably has a lot to do with that. Eventho trading can add to your real age. There were times when i had 'near heart attacks' back when i used to run the hedge fun. I used to put on between 10,000 to 20,000 share size trades. Insane size bro! Just the thought of that is making me shake. Best day : +$95,000, Worst day: -$60,000. And back then we only had about $1million under management. Just young and a little wild, i guess. A little wiser now.

Bluedog said...

Nice to place a face with a name. Stewie! You're the MAN! The story of your hedge fund days was good. 10k and 20k lot size is huge! It makes my 1k seem miniscule. LoL Take it easy and enjoy your weekend.

Great picture, Stewie, but which was is the cartoon character?

Stewie said...

doug. you know i am dying to meet you buddy. I promise SF is on my agenda sometime this summer. My girl will be soooo excited. haha!!! We must do a good steak house!!!!!!! I need red meat in my system.

Blue said...

If you come to S.F. and I'm invited, 1st round of drinks is on me.

It's funny, in 2000 I was working in S.F. at a start up (24 yrs old) and telling my Dad that Yahoo at $200 was insane because they had no real assets. Bubble burst, I lost my job, and I didn't open an on-line account until 2004. I was so wrapped up with "what the hell am I going to do for a career" that trading my own stock didn't even occur to me until my brother started doing it full time. I wish I started in 2003 when I was laid up for 11 months after knee surgery from an on the job injury. All I did was PT and play on-line games.

Trading has been more exciting and challenging to me than anything I've attempted to do and I've had a couple high stress jobs. I think I've found some good people to learn from through your blog and on wallstreak.

Again, thank you.
