My name is Justin. About a year ago my wife and I moved out to the country leaving corporate work behind us (for the third time). We had sold our house in Cape Town and for the first time ever had some spare cash.
It must be noted that I day trade with my wife, we normally agree on what to buy. But not always
We’d both been wanting to Day / Swing trade for ages and now finally had the chance to do so. Neither of us have a financial background. Ok, I’ve worked at a couple of investment banks in London within the IT departments.
My trading strategy:
Buy low, sell high (and quickly) – If I can make a profit in a couple of hours, I’ll do so.
I buy shares that I understand and am familiar with (liking the brand/company/product also counts)
e.g. I bought SAPPI once, big paper company… I hate paper (what was I thinking) and offloaded them first chance I got!!
