Nicholas Marino is the Founder and Editor of the AlphaEyeCharts. He is a 23-year-old graduate of Fairfield University and current Investment Banking Analyst. He loves everything and anything financial markets related. His first interest was peaked when he won The Stock Market Game™, a virtual stock trading competition, in the 7th grade against hundreds of other students in his schools’ surrounding counties.
In college, he majored in Finance and held internships on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to the offices of Wells Fargo Securities. He came across the subject of Technical Analysis in his sophomore year and has been hooked since. Analyzing stock charts, reading about the subject, and investing his own capital are all parts of his market pastime. He is currently pursuing the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) designation and is a Level II Candidate.
Nick is a member of StockTwits and can be found here. He recently started writing longer reports for friends and family. The purpose of this blog is to write further analysis than 140 characters, and let others understand his thought process as well as track his progress.
My Approach: Use technical analysis and intermarket analysis to find opportunities in any market, region, or sector with a skewed risk/reward outcome. I actively search for absolute and relative strength leaders. My time horizon is defined in weeks, months and years.
I prefer K.I.S.S. – keep it simple stupid. To make money, I need to keep my money. I never enter a position without knowing how much capital I am risking, where I will be stopped out, and where I want to take profits.
I also do not care what anyone on CNBC has to say. “Price is always correct, opinions are often wrong.”
