Doing options for years now (hopefully getting better ). Trader, Linguist, Veteran, ex-amateur athletereer. Inspired by Jim Rodgers, I, at times, dream of living the post apocalypse in style as a regal yam and melon farmer somewhere between Hakodate & Makomanai (God's Country!) Stocks I used to like include BG, NTDOY, Tata Motors, EWZ, ERJ and BHP long. Everything up for question in 2013 Observed first hand aftermath of "JPN Bubble" by living there (and Japan carry trade). For the USA, instead of Japan-style deflation, we are leaning towards painful inflation, so I own large amount of phys. silver .
