Welcome to Credit Lime. In my spare time I also contribute to a financial reporting site called www.CreditLime.com which provides in-depth analysis and reporting on news and events in the financial, derivative and credit default swap marketplace. I have over a decade of experience in the financial markets and have traded a variety of equity and fixed income products including but not limited to stocks, bonds and derivatives like credit default swaps (CDS). For the sake of brevity as far as disclosures go, all readers can assume that I hold positions in all the companies I mention or talk about. You can visit and read some of my other postings or reports at: CreditLime (http://www.CreditLime.com/)
I started getting into the stock market at the young age of 13. I have been determined ever since then to learn how to make money in the stock market. By the end of high school I was known has the stock market “kid.” For my graduating class my teachers created a new award for one student to be awarded each year due to my passion in the markets. I am proud to be my high school’s first Warren Buffet Award Winner.
My reputation continued in college as have tried to help others learn what I know. I became President of our school’s Financial Management Association, Treasurer of my fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and also Treasurer of the Inter Fraternity Council. Through the power of leadership I have continued to help others learn the basics of the markets.
I have traded full time using financial derivatives which was very lucrative until the recent market turbulence. I have developed additional risk management rules that adapt to six sigma type events which I share with those close to me. I am now trading again full time with a focus on risk management, profit & loss, and statistical management. Trading is my passion so I strive to utilize 110% of my potential through the continuous commitment to the innovation of the portfolio management profession. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration as a finance major in 2009.
I now own my own market research firm Shane Edmund Group LLC (www.shaneedmund.com) and help with my father's company in business development/operations management involving the quality end of high-tech manufacturing applications (www.accutechmeasurement.com).

If you are reading this to find out who I am because something I just said pissed you off, let me take this opportunity to apologize.
If you are reading this for any other reason, surely you must have something better to do. If that sounds rude, see above.
I am not an investment professional. I do not engage in stock or currency trading. I am a blogger and investor who believes the failure of credit has created an investment demand for gold, and that gold bullion is the sole means of wealth preservation.
