I have been a trader on the floor of the CME since 1996. My scope would be considered Global Macro. I trade markets all over the world but have been focusing my attention recently on the Japanese debt market. It is my opinion that there is a significant chance the Japanese will have a debt crisis and very possibly lose control of the yen in the coming years. I am registered as a CTA and maintain a fund that seeks to profit from what I think is the coming pressure on the Japanese government bond market.
Chris focuses on large cap stocks and assets that generate strong cash flow. He favors long term capital appreciation, companies which produce sustainable and consistent free cash flow, and companies which place a priority on returning real value to shareholders with a long term outlook.
Chris has been investing in the stock market and corporate bond market regularly since 2008. He holds an undergraduate degree in Engineering.
As a value driven investor, my investment approach is safe and cheap. I focus on investing in companies with extremely strong financial positions offering future growth at a discount. I take that same top-down approach and apply a synthesis of market implied growth rates in securities to isolate companies where existing assets of the business covers the market price. I closely monitor the underlying fundamentals of financial markets and the global economy.
Where my research typically diverges from convention is - incorporating a volatility based perspective to the fundamental analysis, enhancing the risk control in investing.
I graduated from UCLA.
I'm seeking a job in sales, client relationship management, or anything finance related.
I have a very high interest in tech, banking, and credit services.
My interests outside of stock investing are philosophy, drumming, reading, and jogging.

Let's trade trade trade, and then trade some more! Love the ladies on FOX business, and Fidelity loves me. OK, well Trish does anyway, some of those other people maybe not so much. I think that's enough. No book, No paid articles, No premium content, No company, just my own personal hedge fund - dammit. I'm such a failure.
In case you don't GROK "GGjr" - that's Gordon Gekko Jr. A reflection of my net worth being several decimal points to the right of his....
Interested in global macro trading and investing using a combination of fundamental and technical analysis, along with tools from the disciplines of political science, economics, and psychology.
Netherlands based non-professional stocktrader with a private portfolio; good at stockpicking; not good at options. I prefer companies with a good ROI, ROE, PEG-ratio, good and inspiring management, a durable competative advantage. BUY AND ACCUMULATE (B&A) is my approach. I'm in the market for the company's profit, not the stockprice in the first place.
I have written 2 dutch books on value investing: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.
I currently work in the airline biz doing corporate real estate. I have a finance background, and worked as an analyst for a few years and before that I worked for a real estate developer. I have an MBA and write about macro trends and observations and will share predictions and investment ideas to take advantage of those predictions; as well as whatever else piques my interest.
