Hello! My name is Sean and thanks for reading my bio. I am a Canadian who left a brief engineering career to move to a monastery and become a monk for a few years. After that I got into trading and the markets during a brief trading career at a prop shop, but the office closed after my 6th month. I worked in B2B IT & telecom sales for two years but never lost my trading bug. I finally left that career and have re-launched my trading career via remote trading from home, for a group based in Florida.
I am always excited to learn more about the economy and business to further my career, which is also my hobby. I closely follow people like James A. Kostohryz and Christine Hughes of Otterwood Capital. I love learning about markets, economies and businesses. I am happy to be working in something that excites me and hope to eventually be able to start sharing with others.
James A. Kostohryz has accumulated over twenty years of experience investing and trading virtually every asset class across the globe.
