me1This site gets its name from Jesse Livermore (JL as he was called by his friends), one of the greatest traders in history. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, his thinly disguised autobiography, is my number one trading book. You can see here why I started this site.

My name is Vlad Gubernat and I am a full-time independent trader based in Romania. I’m working out of a home office with no employees. I trade Forex (mostly the majors), commodities (mostly gold and oil) and stock indexes (mostly DAX). I’ve been trading since 2006 and turned full-time in mid 2013, after several years of steadily increasing performance.

Since August 2015 I’m also the founder and managing director of JLT Capital, a global consulting firm.

Update September 2015: I am honored that one of my trading practices that was featured on Brett Steenbarger’s blog on January 1 this year has now also appeared in his latest book, Trading Psychology 2.0: From Best Practices to Best Processes (on pages 351-353).
