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.
Come join me for lunch for the Mad Hedge Fund Trader's Global Strategy luncheon, which I will be conducting in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on Thursday, July 7, 2016.
A three-course lunch will be followed by an extended question and answer period.
I'll be giving you my up to date view on stocks, bonds, foreign currencies, commodities, precious metals, and real estate.
And to keep you in suspense, I'll be tossing a few surprises out there too. Enough charts, tables, graphs, and statistics will be thrown at you to keep your ears ringing for a week. Tickets are available for $217.
I'll be arriving at 11:30 AM and leaving late in case anyone wants to have a one on one discussion, or just sit around and chew the fat about the financial markets.
The lunch will be held at an exclusive five star hotel, the location of which will be emailed with your purchase confirmation.
Dubrovnik is the pearl of the Dalmatian Coast on the Adriatic Sea, and it's a favorite yachting destination by vacationing continentals. It's white sand beaches and azure waters are legendary.
It was founded in the 7th Century by refugees fleeing the fall of the Roman Empire. At the height of its power in the 14th Century, it rivaled Venice for the domination of maritime trade in the Eastern Mediterranean. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The last time I was there during the Yugoslavian civil war in the 1980's, I was flying a humanitarian mission for the International Red Cross, delivering much-needed drugs to the beleaguered city.
On the way home, I got shot down by the Serbian Army. Fortunately, I managed to crash land my plane in the Austrian Alps and walk away.
While at the Tesla factory in June, amazingly, I ran across a couple of Austrian car dealers who still remember that frightful day.
This time around, I'll spend my mornings writing deep research pieces for the Diary of a Mad Hedge Fund Trader, and the afternoons roasting on the beach. The evenings are reserved for dancing on the tables in the many local bars, celebrating life.
I look forward to meeting you, and thank you for supporting my research.
