I have nearly two decades experience in M&A, distressed debt, special situations and corporate lending both in the USA and in Western Europe, working for hedge funds, investment banks and commercial banks.In 2008 I became interested in technical analysis primarily Elliotwave and trading foreign currencies.I manage my own funds and that of a handful of other individuals with AUM totaling $3.5m. I write articles on securities where I either hold a long or short position. Generally, if I do not have or want to have a position in a security then I will not write an article on such security. I am an investor first and a writer second. I try publish my articles simultaneously when opening or closing a position.
