I am a financial markets junkie with a BA in Economics and an MBA. I have worked as an investment professional in the past for over 10 years. My investment philosophy is a combination of market data/analysis and anecdotal social awareness. Often this puts me in a contrarian position which is why I trade less than most and use many kinds of investments to meet my goals. I hope to begin a blog in the near future that reflects on the types of things that affect my philosophy.
