I go by “Fractal” on twitter. I’ve been interested in personal finance and markets since high school, and been studying them, off and on, for over a decade now.

Early on, I got my start in trading by flipping penny stock pump “promotional” newsletter calls. I intuitively understood the insider that the game that was being played, and used that insight to get in and out of these pump and dumps before the music stopped.

I made a decent amount of money, for a kid just out of high school, but eventually that well dried up. The SEC cracked down on the good promoters, and the game went to shit.

Later, I followed the Tim Sykes method of trading penny stocks, where I did ok. Nothing life changing.

After that period, I took a break from active trading and focused on personal finance, with a little trading thrown in here and there.

Then, in late 2018, I found crypto and my life changed forever.

Since then, I’ve been engrossed in the world of crypto and trading it.

I’ve made, and lost, more money than I care to admit. However, the lessons I learned throughout that journey have made it possible for me to be where I am today.

Making money from trading crypto has changed my life, and this blog is about sharing those lessons and insights. As well as being a creative outlet for myself.

I hope my thoughts and insights can help you in your trading journey.
