My name is Lance Jepsen and I am the owner and founder of GuerillaStockTrading.com. I began trading stocks online back in 1994 with the advent of the Internet and online trading. I started my education company, Confab Publishing, in 2001, to help people wanting to teach in California pass a test called the CSET.
In 1999, I graduated from National University of Fresno, California, Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelor Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, and a minor in Education.
In 2000 I went to work for a retired stock broker, Bob Miranda, and helped him manage an estimated $1 million dollars in his personal portfolio, performing daily and weekly chart analysis. In July of 2013, Mr. Miranda passed away at the age of 76. I will always hold dear the memories of standing over Mr. Miranda's desk pointing out chart patterns as we debated the next best move.
In 2006, I was one of thousands of traders who knew the housing bubble was going to pop and things were going to end badly. In 2008, when the carnage on Wall Street finally happened, I was able to avoid most of it. I was shocked that so many people lost money.
In 2008, several of my trading buddies told me I ought to start a stock trading website and teach people how to analyze the economy and protect themselves in the stock market. After much internal debate over starting a stock trading website, in 2009, I launched GuerillaStockTrading.com.
The crash in the economy in 2008 and 2009 hit the state of California hard. Schools stopped hiring new teachers and my CSET education business withered. In 2010 I quit the CSET education business and re-focused my business exclusively on educating traders and investors.
In 2011 I found the little known trader Jason Bond who had just quit working with Timothy Sykes to start his own stock trading business. After trying his service for 6 months, I knew Jason Bond was an extremely talented trader and a beautiful person that I had to share with the world.
Over the years, my articles and analysis has been syndicated through top financial news sites like Yahoo Finance, Google News, and Seeking Alpha.
I hold a TSAA-SF certification in technical analysis. My market analysis is backed by an education in microeconomics, macroeconomics, international trade, and economics of the media, learning from professor Tyler Cowen (Holbert L. Harris Professor of Economics at George Mason University and also Director of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University), professor Alex Tabarrok (Bartley J. Madden Chair in Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University), and professor Dr. Peter Navarro (Paul Merage School of Business, University of California, Irvine), and professor Dr. Mark Skousen (Chapman University).
