Hello everyone. My name is Rob and I stumbled upon this forum not too long ago. I've been lurking here for a while but recently joined. Anyway about me, I'm 29 years old, I trade stocks and forex for a living from home, I've been a guitar player since I was in 5th grade, I enjoy a good beer, and I love Roman history. I graduated high school in 2000, went to school to become an EMT, then after 9/11 I decided to join the air force as a firefighter. I figured I'd do what I wanted to do for a living, AND serve at the same time, so I did. Got out in '06, went back to delivering pizzas for a living, and then got started trading in February '09. The dummy bull market we had after the March lows was a great environment to learn in. The money came easy and it left much time to study and learn everything I could. Fast forward two years: Still here trading and being profitable, so I must be doing something right! LOL
As for my Roman interests, I enjoy reading books on Roman history, though I have recently gotten into fiction. Simon Scarrow's Eagle series is pretty good. Rome: Total War is my favorite PC game (it's the only one I play), and I love movies and TV series that are set in Roman times, provided they aren't absolutely horrible like the "Empire" mini series was.
But anyway I'm starting to ramble. I need my morning coffee to cure my sleepiness induced A.D.D.
