Manages own IRA, to keep hand on pulse of the market.
Thinks the banking system is a no longer sophisticated control mechanism to keep the serfs in bondage.
Born in Spain, where I lived before moving first to Paris and then to Belgium, where I am currently based, I am a young investor who wants to learn from better and more experienced investors and to earn a decent rate of return on my investments over my entire lifetime.
Follower of the Graham & Dodd investing philosophy, I admire investors such as Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Walter J. Schloss, P. Fisher or Peter Lynch. I also learn from other academics such as Bruce Greenwald or Michael Porter.
I try to look for undervalued securities and to buy them when a big enough margin of safety exists. I try to hold them as long as possible, forever being my ideal holding period, as Buffett would say. I don't care about charts, resistances or price averages. I don't care about macroeconomic data. I do care about company fundamentals. I do care about balance sheet valuation. I do care about competitive advantages and earnings power.
Just like everyone else, I like to earn money. But above all I hate losing it.
