There are very few times that a special Hedging anomaly takes place in the equity markets and Sept/Oct 2014 is one of them. 27 years of specialized analysis using Fibonacci's natural numeric sequences reveals very unique patterning and price drop projections in excess of 20%. Brief glimpses of techniques will be shared along the way. Our management of ONLY Inverse ETFs will be implemented when a market top has developed and we will remove positions when the market, in our opinion, has exhausted most of our pre-calculated downward potential.

At TFI, we approach investing in stocks with the mindset of a long-term business owner, not as a trader. Before investing in a company, we do a thorough, bottoms-up analysis of the company. When we buy the stock of a company, our intention is to hold it for years and decades to come unless there is a significant change in the future business prospect of the company.
I love charting and swing trading! My interest are in economics (macro/micro) I'm both long & short the markets! I don't care much for fundamentals, or storytelling--that is unless you can put pen-to-paper and prove it!

I am an electrician who is currently studying for the series 7 exam. I've been investing since 2008 and maybe by some string of luck have been doing pretty well. For the past few months since reading on options it has been my main goal to learn as much about them as possible. My hobby as a music producer and an artist has been completely taken over with my research and studies on investing and options.
Ian Bezek worked for 3 years as an analyst at a New York-based hedge fund. He's currently living in Mexico, pursuing some entrepreneurial opportunities.

I follow a (hopefully) disciplined value investing philosophy in my investments. I am always looking out for good businesses trading at a discount to fair value due to temporary market stress or investor panic.
