|Candy Matheson: Blogger and (now-retired...as of mid-2013) Russell 2000 E-mini Futures Day Trader. I was first introduced into the world of trading when I (along with my now-late husband) took an options course in Porlock, England in 1997...it involved buying options on the FTSE 100 Index. The instructor was a Scottish fellow named Jock. He was very amusing and quite perceptive...during the 3-day course, he said that my hubby's strength was in entry timing and mine was in exits. Jock's view of our trading styles held true...I'm still working on fine-tuning potential entry points as I continue to observe and write about the markets. My hubby was my trading partner up until his passing in January 2011, and I've dedicated my Blog to him...he was a great inspiration and my soul-mate. The charts and comments in my Blog represent my technical analysis and observations of a variety of markets -- Major World Market Indices -- Futures Markets -- U.S. Sectors & ETFs -- Commodities -- U.S. Bonds -- Forex. I'm also a contributing writer to: Investing.com, Slope of Hope.com, TalkMarkets.com, and McVerry Report.com.
