Bio – I was born in the Bronx, which is part of New York City. I became interested in investing as my article on buying the Erie-Lackawanna RR will show. I had my first article published in Railroad Model Craftsman (model trains- published in Ramsey, NJ) in July, 1965 when I was 18. I went to college at the University of Arizona where I haunted used book stores for books on investing. I finally found the perfect book – Robert Lichello’s How to Make $1,000,000 in the Stock Marketer Automatically. This book showed the perfect system to make great profits for life. I liked his book so much that I started getting ideas on how I could write my own book and improve on the ideas that Mr. Lichello invented.
I had some spare time and started charting stocks I liked under Lichello’s system to see how his system worked with regular stocks. From those humble beginnings, my book began.
My book was written under strange conditions about as far away as you can get from the New York stocks markets – in Tunduchan, Korea (10 miles from DMZ), Maffle, Belgium, and Weilerbach Germany. The beauty of Lichello’s system is that it doesn’t require you to be near the stock market to play. Lichello’s system is very simple and effective and I have made it even more effective with my ideas on adding Bear Strategy to both investing in stocks and long-term options (LEAPs).
I have published my own monthly newsletter for the last twenty years. I have constantly rewritten my investing book which you can order for free at (http://www.jjjinvesting.com).
I went to college at the University of Arizona and got a Bachelor’s Degree in History & Government. Then law school for a year and a half & then to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for a Bachelor’s in Accounting.
I worked for the US Army and the US Air Force as an auditor and management analysts for 33 years and am a proud draftee who fought in the Vietnam War. I lived 17 years in Germany, Korea, Japan & Belgium.
