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 have an understanding of international economic analysis, focusing on indicators and the impact on global markets. I bring 18 years of extensive statistical and empirical research relating to currency exchange rates, interest rate parity theories, and asset class correlation principles. My practice involves, on a monthly basis, closely monitoring major international economic indicators. This has contributed to my comprehensive understanding of the developing monetary and fiscal policies in the major economies, mostly United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Eurozone, Canada, Japan, China, and Switzerland. I published a report for over 11 years which included daily commentary and analysis on the financial markets. I directed cross functional teams and managed the flow of information in the creating and developing of the first automated execution software for retail FX traders. With it, I developed and implemented a semi-automated algorithm to successfully find and exploit inefficiencies in the forex and futures markets, which remains the highlight of my trading career. My knowledge in algorithmic strategy development along with my success as a fund manager in the foreign exchange and futures markets presents a rare insight into the current global trading environment.
