I am a Hanna-Barbera cartoon character created in 1959, a pink anthropomorphic mountain lion sporting an upturned collar, shirt cuffs and a string tie. I was voiced by Daws Butler, and am best known for my famous catchphrase, "Heavens to Murgatroyd!"
Invest in a very small selection of stocks with extraordinary upside/risk profiles. They tend to be small caps. Also trading FX, bonds and stock indices on a tactical basis.
I am a Portuguese independent trader, analyst and algorithmic trading expert, having worked for both sell side (brokerage) and buy side (fund management) institutions.
I've been trading professionally for about 20 years and also launched www.thinkfn.com in 2004. Thinkfn (Think Finance) carries thousands of educational articles on finance and the markets.
I trade futures, stocks from the long and short side, forex and options. I trade both discretionary and fully automated systems (Metatrader, Quantshare and others).

I am an investor relations consultant with 25+ years experience steering IR strategy and outreach for over 100 companies across a range of industries. We launched Catalyst Global in early 2012 to serve as a platform for innovating the IR role to better address the radically different dynamics and needs of public companies and investors.
Catalyst's mission is combining senior level experience and counsel with targeted outreach and efficient communications to deliver real change and share price results for "smidcap" companies in today's markets. We understand relationships and credibility take time, and we root all our work in integrity, candor and a focus on ROI.
I post on Seeking Alpha to expand the reach of client and other investment stories we like - and to understand the nature of these new channels of communication. Networking ideas and working with new media is integral to the IR function - plus it's fun.
CG Focus List is a separate service we use to highlight specific investment stories brought to us by some of the really smart investors we know. Profiled companies can be clients, ex-clients, non-clients or desired clients - but they are stories that offer very attractive investment potential and commensurate risk (there's no free ride in investing!)
My posts are NOT endorsed by the Companies on which I write - client or otherwise. We believe in truth and fair play at all times, and at all costs, and gravitate to those who share that view.
I'm managing editor for SA PRO. I work primarily on our PRO product, though also in support of our marketplace product and in a few other areas on the site. I'm always happy to hear from readers and contributors, whether to help with questions, hear your feedback, or learn how you're using the site. I've been working at SA since September 2012.
I've been investing for 6 years. I used to write articles for Seeking Alpha before becoming an editor (while I'm proud of the work I did, it probably would not have been up to our PRO standards, which is a good thing). I am probably one of SA's most frequent users, and have learned an immense amount from contributors, readers, and SA employees.
Beyond the market, I like reading, travel, writing, playing/writing/listening to music, and learning languages. Probably most relevant to ask me about SA, but you're welcome to get in touch on anything else as well.
