“Sold At TheTop” is the snarky pseudonym for the organic blogger that maintains the reasonably popular and, dare I say, possibly even slightly influential web log PaperEconomy (www.papereconomy.com). “Sold”, as he prefers to be called (especially by his wife under certain saucy circumstances… mmmm…) is not a professional economist, analyst or stock trader and has neither been trained in finance nor statistics. What Sold offers is a dedicated and serious passion for macroeconomic analysis and further, for the creation of striking, some say even artistic, visualizations of macroeconomic data. Though not a “perma-bear” Sold is very bearish about the current state and future of the American economy subscribing whole heartedly to notion that the recent financial crisis is but the second act of an immense systemic unwind that commenced, more or less, in the year 2000. Sold is NOT A PESSIMIST by nature but a true skeptic and a realist that prefers solid and sustained evidence of fundamental economic recovery to “Goldilocks”, “Green Shoots”, “Mustard Seeds” and wholesale speculation. Further, Sold believes that the evidence for rational and efficient markets as well as collective wisdom is scant. In his spare time Sold works as an independent software consultant spewing out cutting edge code like he’s spraying silly string.
Six-time CEO, followed by founding, in 2003, highly successful strategy development and executive performance-improvement consulting business. Semi-retired (not working full time but serve on corporate Boards).
I began my journey as a registered representative in the financial planning industry upon attaining my Series 6 license to sell a limited set of securities products. I was also licensed to sell health and life insurance products as well to be able to provide clients with a comprehensive financial plan.
Following that experience, I worked as a manager in retail/commercial banking operations for an international banking firm learning about money management and risk management principles as applied to large real estate escrow banking. My greatest accomplishment is in living this dream: I semi-retired at an early age of 51 years. I was able to accumulate enough wealth with investments to 'live off' income generated from my portfolio to supplement my current income.
I am not an expert in any one area, but I do have enough competency in the following areas to construct an income generating portfolio along with overall growth of capital.
Dividend Growth Investing;
Master Limited Partnerships;
Growth Stocks (at a reasonable price);
Bonds (Investment grade, high yield, inflation protected, bank loans);
Stock Options Strategies (Long/Short) Currencies (Pairs Trading).
Supporting Skill Sets:
Technical Charting Analysis;
Portfolio Asset Allocation;
Understanding of Macro Economic Forecasts.
Disclosure: I am still learning all of the above competencies and plan on gaining even deeper insights so I can be an even better investor.
I am a private investor with relationships to individuals with distinctly different financial focuses. I blend sound financial expertise from those within the transaction advisory field, as well as individuals with expertise in financial planning. I use the insight from these distinctly different focus groups to supplement my own special situation trading to create synergies in small caps from the bottom up.

Range Bound or Down?
As of late 2015, we have turned bearish, at least in the cyclical sense. We shall see. In January of 2016 Market DJ formed Portfolio Lab: $100,000 of real cash with the goal of making money in a Bear Market, or Side Bear, which ever the case. Portfolio Lab serves a trading account with nimbleness being the golden rule. More details via articles or instablogs will be forthcoming depending upon time constraints. So far we have made very few moves; currently Long F, Long APPL, Long TWTR, Long GLD, Long SLV, Long JO (Coffee Futures), Short NFLX, short UAA, short CMG, and sitting with 72% cash....
waiting to strike...
I have a background in Journalism, and I hope to shed some light upon the media practices I witness each day in the Stock Market. I graduated from Portland State University in 2003 with a BA in English. I make money as a restauranteur, deejay, and writer. I joined the market in June of 2013, which presented some terrific buying opportunities. Recently I quit my night job as a bartender to concentrate on business plans, market research, and to continue making money in the market. So far so good :)
I invest my own capital in a variety of both public and private opportunities. As a former winner of the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award I understand how to build, operate and run a successful business. I've sold my operating companies and now invest for my own account with a focus on the domestic oil E&P business. I have significant positions in current publicly traded companies along with a working interest in multiple oil wells in Oklahoma and Lousiana.
