“Trading is in my blood. When I was 9 years old, I bought my first shares, Philips. @11 I traded my first options and made my first 2,000 guilders!”

 

“One of the exiting elements of being in this business is being one of the first persons in the world who is able to absorb the news as it happens. It is great to scan your information sources and react when something has an impact on your positions”

Bas
