I am retired from international and investment banking. I have over 40 year experience in international commerce, foreign exchange, money markets, fixed income securities trading, securities financing, asset/ liability management, balance sheet planning before and after the Basel accords, risk management, audit, operations. I worked in Duesseldorf, Frankfurt, London, and the longest time, in Chicago and New York. I am now a private small scale equity trader and like to keep abreast of the market sentiments. I am looking for quality input on SA and usually find excellent comments on the technical and business specific side of things. Unfortunately I find many misconceptions on how the general market works, balance sheet mechanics, hedging, the responsibilities of market participants etc. Btw: my handle is the German word for Steam Engine, therefore please do not abbreviate!

Apparently it does not matter who I portray myself to be. Even if caught in a lie, SA editors would merely gloss over that fact and censor anyone who called me out. At least, that's what they have done on behalf of others here. So, for all you know, I'm Batman.
