Former JPMorgan Chase (formerly Bank One) international trade and treasury banker with expertise in trade services, international treasury and foreign exchange. In addition, was CMO of Bank One's Wholesale Banking Group prior to the merger with JPMorgan Chase. Now independent. I track various indicators covering the credit and equity markets; the US and global economies at both a macro and micro level; certain commodities; and the banking and insurance sectors in particular. This provides a sound basis for views that provide the backdrop to my short term trading and long term investing. I am always looking for thoughtful reviews and analysis and choose my information sources VERY carefully. Fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese. Currently tracking daily the Brazilian economy and corporate activities.
