I began my career on Wall Street in 1998. After spending five years as a floor trader trading equity derivatives on the floor of the American Stock Exchange, I moved on to the Global-Macro hedge fund world. Since 2005, I have worked in various capacities:  trading, risk management, economic analysis and portfolio management.

With this blog, I hope to use my knowledge and experience in the global marketplace to provide insightful analysis that readers will find interesting and illuminating.  Content may vary from arcane economic theory to practical economic and market analysis.  My goal is not to provide run of the mill market commentary, but rather, to produce content that will be of interest to those who aspire to a greater understanding of the markets, and are willing to work toward that goal.
