As long as I can remember I have been very passionate about financial success. I have read many books and dedicated countless hours to research. Sowing Prosperity is my outlet to help others. Through my experiences of making money in the stock market, buying investment properties, being 10x my annual income in debt, becoming debt free, losing my life savings in the stock market and starting over, I can help guide and steer clear of major pitfalls. It's not nearly as hard as it seems.
The mission of Sowing Prosperity is to understand and utilize principles and actions for a life of financial freedom. We learn by breaking down the principle of Sowing, Cultivating and Reaping (Harvesting). Principles are timeless laws that govern life. Therefore we will start with the greatest book ever written, the Bible, and build a toolbox for achieving prosperity in life.

"If there is a sudden range expansion in a market that has been trading narrowly, human nature is to try and fade that price move. When you get a range expansion, the market is sending you a very loud, clear signal that the market is getting ready to move in the direction of that expansion.” - Paul Tudor Jones
"While a fundamental analyst may be able to properly evaluate the economics underlying a stock, I do not believe they can predict how the masses will process this same information. Ultimately, it is the dollar-weighted collective opinion of all market participants that determines whether a stock goes up or down. This consensus is revealed by analyzing price."
Mark Abraham , Quantitative Capital Management, L.P.
"Profit targets imply a trader can predict the future. Profit targets are profit-limiting. Trend followers stay in the moment of now, avoid prognostication, and let markets run as far as they go. "
Thomas Vician, Jr.
"We can’t always take advantage of a particular period. But in an uncertain world, perhaps the investment philosophy that makes the most sense, if you study the implications carefully, is trend following. Trend following consists of buying high and selling low. For 19 years we have consistently bought high and sold low. If trends were not the underlying nature of markets, our type of trading would have very quickly put us out of business. It wouldn’t take 19 years or even 19 months of buying high and selling low ALL of the time to bankrupt you. But trends are an integral, underlying reality in life. How can someone buy high and sell low and be successful for two decades unless the underlying nature of markets is to trend? On the other hand, I’ve seen year-after-year, brilliant men buying low and selling high for a while successfully and then going broke because they thought they understood why a certain investment instrument had to perform in accordance with their personal logic.

I work as a precious and base metals analyst/strategist at FastMarkets (global provider of market analysis and price forecasts for the metals industry) in London.
I have worked in the metals markets for more than 5 years and been passionate for the industry for more than a decade. In fact, I bought my very first gold coins when I was 17.
In addition to my strong interest in understanding the metals complex, I manage a portfolio for my family and close friends, which can be described as a discretionary global macro portfolio. My investment philosophy has been highly influenced by George Soros and Karl R. Popper.
I continue to work on my philosophical framework in order to improve my decision-making process under "Knightian" uncertainty, which corresponds to an environment in which it is impossible to make a quantitative determination of true probability given the high degree of uniqueness of the situation.
I was born in Paris, France. I graduated from University of Assas with a MSc in finance (2011), I also earned a MSc Research in economics from University of Sorbonne (2012), where I published a research thesis intituled “Is gold a speculative bubble?” under the direction of Natixis Chief Economist Patrick Artus, and I finally received a MSc in management from ESSEC Business School (2014).
I launched a blog in 2013, Mikz Economics, in which I share some of my research as well as trade ideas. Follow me on Twitter @MikzMetals to get the most updated metals news

While most economists focus on short-term trends, policy changes, technical indicators, elections – things that are volatile and unstable– Harry Dent and the Dent Research team focus on long-term trends.
Demographic trends, business, market and economic cycles; human behavior patterns; and purchasing power are all things that have demonstrated themselves over hundreds (even thousands) of years to be consistent, predictable and measurable.

I hold a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment (similar to CFA), and a Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning.
I have 30 years of personal investing experience, and 17 years of professional financial advising experience, including trading experience at ETrade Australia, 6 years as a Senior Financial Planner at Commonwealth Bank of Australia and 10 years at High Net Worth Financial Advising. My business is a mix of young clients growing their wealth, pre-retirees, and retirees wanting income, some growth, and safety. As a global investor I use a macro thematic approach searching for good value and/or high growth. I search the globe for great investments with a focus on Asia, Emerging and Frontier Markets as well as "trend investing". I assess a countries demographics and growth potential. Some trends I currently follow include the rising Asian middle class, electric vehicles and the lithium/cobalt/graphite/nickel/copper miners, renewable energy, energy storage, smartphones, 3D printing, and personal robots.
I also love to invest in income producing investments that can grow over time and benefit from compounding....Included here are the near monopoly businesses such as the stock exchanges, and the high quality income producers.
I use direct shares, ETFs, mutual funds and some direct property investments.
Potential new clients can contact me via the private message section or via my HNW website, linked on my profile page. I have recently launched an international client service.
I am a private investor with over eight years of experience in the public markets.
I most recently served as a founding member of an institutional portfolio strategy firm headquartered in NYC. My prior experience includes three years as an analyst at a long/short equity hedge fund, two years in sell-side equity research, and two years as a healthcare investment banking analyst.
Chris Cook's background is in UK market regulation, latterly as a Director of the International Petroleum Exchange. In recent years, he has been a strategic market consultant and commentator, and has also been actively developing new partnership-based legal and financial structures or "enterprise models". Since 2011 Chris has been a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Security & Resilience Studies at University College London.
Just finished (September 2015) a phase of 16 years of legal work as a partner in www.shibolet.com with extensive experience in securities, IPOs, public filings and due diligence of public companies.
Currently I am the co-founder and CEO of www.trailvest.com, a startup in the social network arena.
It's been quite a journey the past six years as I've learned about stocks, technical analysis, swing trading, dividend growth investing, and now options. For 17 years, I home educated our children and tutored, while my husband supported the family. Once I worked myself out of that job, I had to decide what I should be when I grow up. Without a useful degree, my income is minimal, but I really enjoy my part-time jobs. I have used my jobs as a learning tool more than an income tool and they have been very profitable. I focus the rest of my time making my husband's income the most useful it can be, and managing our home. I enjoy playing with bookkeeping, finance, investments, taxes, and strive to be the best steward of all the resources (time, energy, health, family, money, stuff) we have. The only purpose of my investing was to be able to afford to retire at a normal, reasonable age and hopefully to live off the dividends from those investments without needing to spend down the principal. As health concerns are forcing us to consider earlier retirement, the portfolio income may be needed at anytime. This does not worry me, it just changes the trajectory of the portfolio. I am very thankful for the gentle start into investing and am excited by what might happen in the future. I’m so glad this website was recommended to me and I genuinely appreciate the contributors and their comments here and the growth that has happened through participation on the forum. In case you're wondering about 'inzkeeper', I formerly managed an inn and the email moniker has stuck with me over the years.
