I am a masterless Samurai Daytrader - I studied Economics in college, was an athlete, then ran businesses, then spent some time overseas and came to the cathartic realization that we make the world what we want it to be and all it takes is insight, research, and wisdom. The markets are the Circus Maximus of the 21st century. We make our own luck even when competing against robots. My areas of focus are Commodities markets, Forex, Tech Equities, and Asian Markets. I speak Japanese (quite poorly) and I can dunk a basketball.
A true investing contrarian with more than a decade's experience in the financial markets. I review a variety of sectors with both long and short ideas.
