I worked as an independent economic consultant before I retired. My economic opinions were sought out by those who had heard that my use of Austrian economic analysis had resulted in some very accurate predictions. Unfortunately, the number of Austrian economists in Australia can be counted on one hand. The current situation is so hostile that it has proven impossible to get economics articles based on Austrian economics published. Still, we do our best.

As an independent trader, I focus on tradeable advice across a wide range of financial products and markets. After several years of short-term trading I now find the real challenge is to take a trade guided by macro views and only pick those trades that fit my trading personality. As a Psychologist I see the investment and trading world as a mirror of mass psychology and sentiment. Any ideas expressed are solely for educational and informational purposes.
Started studying charts 10 years ago during my "free" time (remember that?) - had the "aha" moment... - and keep learning from it as time passes. Social Security and 401K's aren't gonna cut it probably and nothing's getting cheaper. There is a flow in any market - we are here to monitor the flow - the roller coaster - and it's fun after you learn not to get burned. BTW - you will get burned once in a while...
Currently living in Boston, MA. Have undergrad degrees in Economics and Supply Chain & Information System, and a Master's Degree in Finance with a quantitative emphasis. I have a multifaceted investment/trading approach that involves a high concentration of monthly income paying securities, a position of core holdings that have liquid options that I use to manage my risk basis, and a smaller component devoted to speculative holdings and precious metals.
I am also an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran having served in the Air Force, and managed resources in excess of $15 Billion during combat operations.

Upon receiving my Masters degree in Music from Connecticut's Hartt School of Music, I took a job at a local Friendly's serving ice cream, where I perfected the disgruntled, comatose look, as seen in the photo at left. As a first-time participant in the American economy by way of fast-food, I noted the vileness and squalor into which our country was plummeting.
Now, as an SA commentator, I look forward to multiplying my earnings, once I get some, and settling down as a prime member of society, living out my remaining years in the luxury every red-blooded American deserves.
I currently live in a barn with my saxophones, watching America decline around me.
Real Name: Troilus Bryan
Farmer and writer from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
I currently make a living as a grain farmer. I have my CFP certificate, so I studied and worked long enough in the financial industry to learn all of the crappy 'investment' vehicles they shove idiots into and send them over the cliff... metaphorically speaking.
I am a bull on gold, oil, and grain. I invest money in precious metal and energy stocks. I also am looking for capital to expand my farming operations.
I have a satirical website called "Achieving Poverty - 47 Proven Methods of Overcoming Opportunity, Ability, and Abundance" which you likely should not visit because you'll not take my other ideas seriously. www.achievingpoverty.com
