I graduated from Boston University in 1981 with a BA in Finance. From 1983-1997, I was a spot currency trader on the desks of several European banks in NYC. Since 1997, I have been trading from home. I consider myself to be a student of markets, and market history. I believe so much can be learned from history, and examining the facts. I try never to make an assertion about economics or markets, without it being fact-based and not simply an opinion.
