Clueless cretin giving his best on the stock market. Likes traveling, eating out, and multibagging. I trade small caps where the risk/ reward is firmly in my favour. Buy the dream by all means, but don't leave the risk on the shelf. Lasted six months in the corporate world after finishing two Masters degrees and a semester at Harvard (where I met Mrs Idoit). Now I am a perennial student of the stock market and try to share that knowledge with others. Follow me on Twitter! @vilage_idoit
