I am a 55y old european, with MBA equivalent (my degree used to be called differently in those days...) from a reputed european university; i have been 30 years in banking (financial analysis & lending) in a major european bank, and have for about the same length of time being investing in stocks on a personal basis, mostly tech & biotech. In the last few years i have been devoting an increasing part of my time in the latter.
I graduated from Boston University in 1981 with a BA in Finance. From 1983-1997, I was a spot currency trader on the desks of several European banks in NYC. Since 1997, I have been trading from home. I consider myself to be a student of markets, and market history. I believe so much can be learned from history, and examining the facts. I try never to make an assertion about economics or markets, without it being fact-based and not simply an opinion.
