Roughly three years ago I started blogging as “BruniCharting” to learn more about Technical Analysis and financial markets. Never did I imagine how much I would learn or that readership would grow beyond the few family members and friends that humored me by reading, into the thousands of followers / readers across the sites that feature my work. Throughout this journey I’ve met a lot of great people, had a ton of great experiences, and have picked up skills that will serve me throughout the rest of my personal and professional life.
With that being said, I’ve decided to take a break from the Technical Analysis thing for a while to try new things. Throughout college I’ve been tirelessly attempting to figure out MY answer to the question “What do you want to do?” (which is not an easy question for a 21 year old who struggles to decide what to order at any restaurant that has more than 3 items) with little success. I’ll never be absolutely certain, but I think I’ve identified the problem that I’d like to help solve throughout the course of my career. I want to help people make better, more rational decisions with their money. How exactly / in what capacity I’m going to do that has yet to be determined, but it’s a good starting point.
Financial Markets will always be there, and so will the desire to successfully speculate in them – along with all the products/services related to that goal. There are whole industries built around that and they’re not going away as long as human nature remains a factor. If I determine that trading is more than a hobby and want to turn it into a career at some point down the line, the opportunity will be there. For now, I’m going to focus my efforts on this new goal and take life one day at a time…that is after I go enjoy the rest of my final summer off.
Lastly, I want to give a quick thank you to everyone who has supported me on my journey thus far, with a special thanks to JC Parets at AllStarCharts, Andy Nyquist at SeeItMarket, all my friends from DormRoomCapital, and the team at Benzinga for allowing me to contribute to your sites / communities over these past few years. I also want to thank the to the finance community in general for all the interactions and feedback over the years, you guys / gals have helped me in more ways than you could ever imagine.
I’ll be taking a break from social media for the remainder of the summer (besides to keep up with my favorite reads / make sarcastic comments here and there), but I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated with what my next steps are once I figure them out myself.
As always, if you have any questions feel free to reach out and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. @BruniCharting
