Joined 7 years ago from Camarillo, CA




I'm an experienced engineer with interest in financial investment. I have my Master degree in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech. I also have a chemical engineering degree from U of Minnesota at Twincities. I currently live in Camarillo, CA USA and work for a public company in Business Service sector.

I have lived in various part of USA such as Minneapolis (MN), Ames (IA), Boston (MA), Pompton Lakes (NJ), Atlanta (GA), and Camarillo (CA). I also used to live in various part of Asia.

I have learned a lot from my short 4 years investing experience and am still learning. I lost half of my investment capital during the economic crash 2008-2009, I learned the hard way. By mid 2010, I have recovered all my capital and gain some more. Both my 401k and brokerage account has recovered to pre crash level and more.

My investing experience includes trading on Closed end Fund (CEF), Exchange Traded Funds (ETF), Mutual Funds and Stocks. I have invested in many different styles.. momentum or value investing or algo... Everything is self taught by myself.

My hobby: Football, Soccer, Hockey, Basketball, Hiking and more

Lesson learned from investing:

1. Never have a "Hope" word in investing. When you are hoping, time to cut loose your investment.

2. Have a target when you invest whether stock or fund whether it is downside or upside.

3. It is okay to take profit and it is okay to take a loss. Look at the big picture. One loss or one gain is nothing.

more to come..

I'm interested in the following topics:

- Investing

- Online Deals

- Travel

- Computer PC -- Desktop or Laptop

- Any Sports: Soccer, American football, baseball, hockey, basketball etc.
