We are an independent Financial Education and Discretionary analysis blog, focusing on macro based instruments such as the Foreign Exchange markets, Stock Indices & ETFs. We aim to help users in their broad macro market analysis as well as refine their potential entry positioning by looking for high probability trading setups through our trading updates, which we hope will help participants generate market returns that are non-correlated to the stock market.

I graduated top of my class with a degree in management with a concentration in finance. While I work in a finance capacity in the non-profit world, I have been following the market and trading daily since I was sixteen years old. I have always loved analyzing individual businesses and trends in their stock price, and finding trading/investing opportunities that the overall market has not yet recognized.
My fascination with the market began when I put $3,000 I had saved into my very first stock trade, selling 20 minutes later for a $200 profit. I was sixteen, and it was love at first sight. I have closely followed the markets ever since, and have traded/invested in hundreds of stocks. My professional career has also involved starting a couple of businesses, and managing a few others. While I prefer short term trades based on technical analysis, I enjoy performing fundamental analysis on business models that I can easily understand.
My goal for my Seeking Alpha articles and technical analysis blog posts is to show people some of the items I analyze when making investment and trading decisions, in a concise and easy to understand manner.
