As a new investor, I am looking to increase my awareness and knowledge of the relationship between asset prices, commodity prices, and the macroeconomic factors that drive these relationships. Because of this, I like to take a top down approach when considering my investments: starting with macroeconomic factors and ending with technical analysis. Furthermore, I believe technical analysis is the only method of determining asset prices. I believe fundamental analysis is subjective and relies too much on what is already known. Finally, I enjoy reading about mathematics, current events, and theoretical economics.
