This website is written and managed by Oddmund Groette and Hakan Samuelsson. Mr. Groette is a native Norwegian but resides in the former USSR. Mr. Samuelsson lives in Sweden, where he trades, invests, and manages one of Sweden’s most popular financial websites: Samuelssonsrapport. He also founded The Robust Trader.
We have been independent full-time traders and investors for 20 years. We have traded every time frame there is and have gained valuable trading lessons.
While we don’t give any specific investment advice, we do believe we have some insights to offer. We have skin in the game and eat our own pudding. We trade many of the strategies we publish on this website (obviously not all).
In addition to trade short-term patterns, we invest for the long run. Please check out RationalThinking.net.
Why do we run websites if we make a living trading and investing?
We make a living out of our hobby, but we also like to make money (like most people). Moreover, we also have a true passion for anything related to trading/investing. We like being in contact with traders and we become better investors by running the website. The more traders and investors we know, the better we get as both traders and human beings.
Our main motivation for this blog is to improve our understanding, knowledge, and competence. Writing is a very powerful tool, and we believe an audience makes us put in a little more effort. We both have higher (useless) educations, but we quote Nassim Nicholas Taleb: “What I was given to study in school I have forgotten; what I decided to read on my own, I still remember”.
We regard ourselves as more “street smart” than “academic smart”. We have survived in the markets for twenty years by being adaptable and flexible, not by building theoretical and complex models. If something seems reasonable, we go for it.
We’re investment agnostics: We invest in whatever time frame there is: day trading, swing trading, or investing for decades. We don’t go into the office in the morning with a rigid framework/mindset for where, when, and how to invest. Investing is a continuous learning experience.
