After my study Technology Management at the Technical University of Eindhoven, I have been a professional option trader at Optiver for nearly 8 years. As an option trader I have experienced how the dynamics of the financial markets work. I was surpised by the large number of people that do not know how to plan their long term financial future. People often think there is a lot of money needed to get satisfying results. Actually, with a good plan and the necessary discipline, nearly anyone can build a small fortune on the long term. One can retire early and enjoy their freedom in their holiday home.
