I was a Financial Advisor and worked at Morgan Stanley. I have 3 Graduate Degrees In Finance and Economics. I am daily in tune with the markets around the world From Stocks Bonds Options Currencies Commodities Futures and had licenses to trade for others and now I trade and invest for myself both long and short positions. Then holdings for the long term . Eisenhower warned the American People in his outgoing speech to NEVER let Corporate Interest sway Americas Political Views with our VAST "Industrial Military Complex" the words he created as the only General to become President of The United States of America in the 20th Century. He even said future Presidents may not be aware of what may come but he did say it would be our Great Nations Demise. Im sure you can find it on youtube. Here we are 50+ years later that he worried this may happen.
Now we rank 17 in the most Corrupt Nations in the World with Senators & Congress with their BS Foundation & Organizations with contributions from Corporations which is EXACTLY what Eisenhower warned about. I am daily in tune with Domestic and Geopolitical news and The Geopolitical landscape that I see changing right before my eyes and it scares me. New alliances are being born and America has done nothing GREAT as a Beacon of Light & Hope which i pray will happen. I consider myself on both sides of the coin and I understand Wall Street but I have my own Business on Main Street. I can only say no matter what any trader, hedge funds, high frequency traders, or a technical or fundamental trader, broker, financial advisor or anybody else for that matter who is touting their plays on CNBC or Bloomberg giving 30 opinions and 50 different scenarios and looking at Macro Views from every different angle and having guests and contributors giving their own thesis which has not changed since I left. There is a key element about the Financial Models which by the way are being rewritten as we go. We are globalizing in unchartered territory. America needs a REAL GAME CHANGER. we need to create the LARGEST SMART GRID INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT the world has ever seen. We are vulnerable in many areas. We need to do a complete OVERHAUL for The Nations Security in our Energy and Americas Ecosystem for the People and By The People. THE most Important thing to always remember is you can NEVER calculate the Evolution of the Human Spirit and the Will of the People.
Graduated from college with a Business Degree and a Major in Finance. Self-made. Retired 12 years ago. Began investing in MLPs, REITS, & Preferreds in 1996. Active personal investor for the last 27 years, which includes the Crashes of 1987, 2001, and 2008. The key to investing is time; investing for the long-term requires patience & commitment while we struggle in the short-term with emotion & logic. Dividends reward me for being patient. I prefer to buy income producing assets when they at the lower end of their trading range; the closer to book-value the better. I tend to buy and hold, unless the valuation gets out of whack, in which case I hope to sell, follow, and re-invest at a later date, post correction.

Nuclear Pharmacist fairly new to the world of investing. Would really rather be a geologist and may very well change careers after the kids are gone. Very interested in commodities. Want to learn more, that's why I joined this forum.
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.
