I've worked in the financial sector for 5 years before changing careers. When working in the investment sector, I received my Series 7, 63, 65. I worked for Fortune 500 financial companies as well as small financial firms. Presently, I work in international wholesaling, and live in Shanghai, China. The markets are my passion, as I'm consistently eager to teach, learn, and improve my investment knowledge.
I am a professional who spends their day looking at securities, swaps, legislation and legal implications on the same. I look for value where it is otherwise not found. EQUITY, DEBT, CDS, ISDAFIX (IR SWAPS) FX. and a major advocate of good corporate governance = better valuations.
The USA is in trouble due to a broken federal political system, corruption that is less sinister and more systematic, lobbyist control of everything, and free markets used as an excuse to make money off people's misery. Despite this fact, I want to survive and (in parallel) I want to see humanity progress so I'll just do my little part and hopefully I have some success. If anyone here is truly seeking "alpha" status then you are guaranteed to fail as it only happens to those not looking for it. "The crow doesn't choose the crow life, the crow life chooses the crow" -- The Lord Of Crows. I cannot help my cynicism but I enjoy humanist moments plus I also really like a good laugh since, as you may know, humor is one of the most important aspects of life.
I am interested in finding short term trading strategies that result in a positive EV over time, as a way of generating income and personal freedom. On the other hand I enjoy betting games, and view my trading like betting poker hands. The longer term strategy would be to funnel trading profits to solid dividend payers, as a way to cash out of the casino. If you like my work, feel free to contact me.
