Contributor Since 2013

John Thomas is a 50-year veteran of the financial markets. He spent 10 years as a financial journalist, ten more years trading for a major investment bank, and another decade running the first dedicated international hedge funds. Seeing the incredible inefficiencies and severe mispricing offered by the popping of multiple bubbles during the Great Crash of 2008, and missing the adrenaline of the marketplace, he returned to active hedge fund management.

With The Diary of a Mad Hedge Fund Trader, his goal is to broaden public understanding of the techniques and strategies employed by the most successful hedge funds so that they may more profitably manage their own money.

He publishes a daily research newsletter, and offers one of the most successful trade mentoring services in the industry. He currently has followers in 134 countries.

In his free time, John Thomas climbs mountains, does long distance backpacks, practices karate, performs aerobatics in antique aircraft, collects vintages wines, reads the Japanese classics, and engages in a wide variety of public service and philanthropic activities.

His career has taken him up to 20,000 feet on Mount Everest, to the edge of space at 90,000 feet in the Cockpit of a MIG-25, and to the depths of a sunken Japanese fleet in the Truk Lagoon.

Why they call him "Mad" he will never understand.

Thanks to the thousands of new subscribers that have poured into this service in recent months, I have been able to complete a major upgrade of my website at . Now that the daily traffic is reaching astronomical proportions, it is time to join the big league of online financial services with an industrial strength website.

The new site offers vastly improved layout, design, and functionality. And according to my Dallas based designer, it is just plain purttier. Among the enhanced services are:

*There will be two levels of password access for paid subscribers.

*Current paid subscribers will have real time access to the online version of the entire newsletter for the first time. They will still be emailed the full daily letter to their personal addresses.

*Paid subscribers will also get access to a confidential page offering private news alerts.

*Subscriptions to my market beating Trade Alert Service will be available for the first time for $1,997 a year. For details, please click here at  .

*The entire archives of Hedge Fund Radio are available for download.

*A new “Luncheons” section offers tickets for sale with auto confirms.

*The subscription and renewal process has been fully automated.

*The public will still have free access to the less market sensitive research pieces.

My apologies to regular viewers, who have been faced with a website that has been going up and down like a yoyo during the past week. Paid subscribers should be receiving the new passwords by email in coming days.

I have put together this website with spit and bailing wire over the past four years, at it at long last time to bring in professional help. This involves migrating a dozen non-compatible databases to the new site, which I can tell you is a headache and a half. Thank you for your support and I hope you like the new site.

Your Loyal Servant,

John Thomas.
