To SA Readers:
I have been "in the markets" since 1965, 49 years ago. I started trading stocks at age 23, as I continued my professional engineering career. Currently, at age 72, I can only look back in wonder and amazement. Not only have the markets changed, but they have changed in ways that nobody could have ever possibly predicted. So, color me doubtful of all future forecasts involving the markets; we all like to think we can forecast something.....but can we really? Nonetheless we keep trying. When we are right we feel empowered and when we are wrong we quickly move on. That's human nature, I believe. I enjoy the forecasting game!
In 1981 I sold my interest in an early Hong Kong electronics manufacturing company, and decided to persue my "hobby". I had read the WSJ everyday for years and thought I knew something, so I went to work for Merrill Lynch in 1982 as a retail broker. One thing led to another and I ended up at PaineWebber as a discretionary money manager, which led to UBS on the buy-out in 2000.
I retired from UBS 12 years ago, but continue to be active in the markets. Over the many years I have traded stocks, options, bonds, MLP's, Reit's, and all the other stuff including currencies and non US markets. I consider myself to be an expert in none of these things.....but I usually have an opinion. At some point, when I am old enough, I may share my thoughts with SA readers. Being retired also means I don't have to do any trading or investment plans if I so choose, and that is nice, because I have only one client to please at this point: my wife of 50 years! There are, in fact, other things in the world beyond the financial markets, but no doubt it is the financial markets which remain my greatest interest.
Best wishes to all who venture into these markets.
