Steve Ryan is currently an active trader, investor, a writer, and an entrepreneur. He has always been a curious person, especially in the area of finance and money.
Now travelling around the world, writing, and building his business, Ryan trades on his personal account every day. His method: Scanning 300 stocks and ETFs every night and coming up with no more than 10 potential setups to focus the next day.
He has a blog focusing on practical solutions for traders and investors: http://BearnBull.com
Ryan did not learn his rope the easy way.
Few years ago, he used to spend at least 10 hours daily looking at the stock charts when he first learned how to trade stocks. The company he worked for even gave him a warning for looking at StockCharts.com too many times during working hours.
Ryan has always been passionate to become a consistently profitable trader and investor. However, he was stubborn, arrogant, impatient, and reckless. And there is no place for those characters in the market.
He learned his lesson, in the hard way. The market crushed him financially and worse, psychologically.
And the long, painful lesson in investing and trading was the thing prompted Ryan to write.
Ryan hopes the books he wrote on investing and trading serve as eye openers to many small, retail individual investors out there. We are all at big disadvantages, and it is only logical for each trader or investor to add values to one another.
Ryan has always believed that investing is the only way to achieve financial freedom in life. Working for other people or counting on the banks or governments is not an option for him.
After many years, Ryan finally developed a short-term trading style that correlates positively with long-term investing.
Ryan loves reading and talking finance and money every day. When he is not busy trading, writing, or getting involved in his business, he plays basketball, football (soccer, whatever), hang out with his friends, or spend time with his family.
