I'm a 34 year old accountig major from Puerto Rico. I work in a public accounting firm as a senior accountant and I am a CFA Level II candidate. Looking for ways to connect with people and talk about investments and investment strategies. Interested in every type of investment strategies: technical analysis, value investing, special situations, etc. Married with no children. Hobbies are sports, reading and going to the beach.
My academic background is in Engineering and management.
Besides one basic accounting course at university my investment knowledge is self-taught.
Reading books, SEC filings, annual reports, analyst reports, blog posts, MOOCs, message boards and listening to select podcasts and conference calls has helped me enormously to evolve as an investor.
Chairman, Taylor Asset Management, Inc.

I am projecting that the US govt is near insolvent and that we will be facing a new Bretton Woods currency agreement bringing gold back into the monetary system in combination with a sudden fiat currency devaluation (across the board-most currencies) against gold over a long weekend or an outright sovereign debt panic by 2020-2025. The least expected outcome double digit inflation is very likely sometime in the future. The Fed PRO-POVERTY policies are going to crush the poor, fixed pensioners and lower middle class since disposable income growth is limited. Beware middle class and retirees your purchasing power will drop dramatically when everyday necessities absorb a larger % of your income. To spread the word to the brainwashed American drones that this economy is one big illusion ponzi scheme and you are infact broke. Issuing more debt to solve a debt problem is crazy. I am accepting nominations for those that played a major positive and major negative impact on our economy.

Now retired from about thirty-five years of active teaching in a variety of public-law and private-law subjects, I'm an Emeritus Professor of Law at a Canadian faculty. My financial security has come largely from the equity markets, and I think that my interest in public policy has given focus and direction to my investment decisions.
