I work in capital markets for 12 years, with a heavy focus on resource stocks. First in financing, then in capital markets communications, I assisted 30+ companies to expand their shareholder base into Europe.
This inside track into the resource industry allows me, to listen to unfiltered, non-sugarcoated facts and stories, you will not read in the media. This is where I derive my investment ideas from, which I would like to share with you here.
Living and working in Germany, I will provide the perspective of a European resource investor. Besides a perhaps slightly different market perception, I also follow Asian and European resource companies that might be overlooked by North-American investors.
I have about 10 years experience in the markets and I've witnessed some amazing moments in financial history. I have a M.S. in Finance and a B.A. in Social Science, and I was formerly Series 3 licensed (expired) to trade futures... In my experience, the most important element of trading is managing risk. Trading isn't about winning, it is about not losing.
I am a programmer, a researcher and a computer scientist on artificial intelligence. My past lives include working on two startups, two universities and one industrial research institution. I have been trading since 2004.
Researching stocks is my hobby as well as an important source of income. My interest includes techs, big caps, biotechs as well as dividend stocks.
Managing Partner with a boutique consulting firm... With a father who is an Economics Professor and a mother who is a highschool teacher you can say i come from a conservitive background but as a consultant working with many entrepenuers i get to see both sides of the coin...
Long term bull, but still feel its a pickers market.
