My academic background is Physics, worked in the oil industry for a large international oil services company in the early 1980's and then resigned to do an MBA. After a stint at a Venture Capital company, eventually ended up at one of the investments. Over the last 4 years have focussed on Biotech, essentially on de-risked buyout candidates as Big Pharma tries to re-invigorate their product pipelines. I also play what appear to be misunderstood and oversold situations, and although for the most part these have worked out to be very profitable there have been situations where I have gotten it wrong from a timing perspective.
I am a small time trader in my IRA. I have mostly invested in the market and utilized market timing successfully several times. I am a civil engineer by training and have worked in design engineering and project management. I am currently engineering director for a large water and sewer utility in North Carolina. Basically I know nothing about trading and I am learning.

Robert P. Balan has more than 4 decades of experience in the financial markets. Education in mining engineering, computer science, finance, and training in economics led to a commodity analysis career during the commodity boom of the early 1970s. Robert made a switch to global macro focus in the early 1980 when the commodity bull market waned, with specialization in foreign exchange. Robert wrote a very high profile daily FX analysis while Geneva-based in the mid-1980s (the first FX commentary with a real global readership, "most accessed" in the Reuters and Telerate networks from 1988 to 1994). He worked for Swiss Bank Corp and Union Bank of Switzerland (precursors of today’s new UBS) as head of technical research and as proprietary trader in various major finance centers (London, New York, and subsequently head of proprietary trading in Toronto, respectively) from late 1980s to mid-1990s. A stint at Bank of America as head of global technical research (in London and New York) followed in late 1990s to early 2000s. Robert did technical analysis for Saxo Bank (Denmark) in the mid-200s based in New York. He returned to Switzerland in 2004 as head of technical research and strategy, and FX and commodity market analyst for Swiss Life Asset Management in Zurich. He joined Diapason Commodities Management in 2008 as senior market strategist, and subsequently as Chief Market Strategist, utilizing fundamental macroeconomic drivers, and structural/technical data in modeling asset price and sector movements. Robert wrote a book on the Elliott Wave Principle in 1988, which was hailed by the London Society of Technical Analysts as “the best book ever written on the subject”. Robert is a member of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE), USA.

I am a freshman student at Auburn University studying finance. I am a part of Auburn's Financial Management Honor Society, which is a collection of the brightest students in finance at Auburn.
Most of my research is done for long value plays of equities, with a specific focus on dividend investing.
I am retired apart from managing family investments - mostly equities. I live near Zürich, Switzerland. I keep physically fit by walking and mentally fit by writing mostly on philosophy, economics and politics. My writing is sometimes published internationally. My hobby is art - drawing with pencil - and the face here is a diversification from female backs that I mostly do. I often work from photos. My art website is www.naturalelegance.ch
I do not believe in good or bad stocks, only in good or bad prices for them. I am not afraid of volatility, and if I believe in a stock's prospects I will chase it all the way down to pennies. I am a patient investor, and if I like a company I will generally commit for the long haul. I rarely go short - the potential benefits in my view rarely compensate for the risks incurred. I sometimes use leverage, but in a disciplined way. Leverage and emotions don't mix. I always look at the math, numbers, and accounting behind any investment target or strategy. I believe that in finance the devil is in the details, and that most of the "macro outlook" commentary that pervades the financial media and financial forums is uninformed, pretentious mumbo-jumbo. I invest in many industrial sectors: energy (mainly oil & gas), mining, transportation, banking, and real estate. I do however shy away from segments of the market that I do not understand (e.g., biotechnology).
I do not render individualized investment advice, and I do not manage or solicit for management any third-party capital. My analyses are solely for informational/educational purposes, and may contain errors.
