Question: Have I Ever Thought of Working for a Fund?

Challenge Accounts:

Investing Account Balance: $201.46

Stock / Futures Trading Balance: $684.39
Online Savings Balance: $12.07

Personal Trading Thoughts: Cash. No positions. Short - bearish outlook to sell rallies in stock market, but extremely wary as this market remains very volatile. Looking only for long positions in the Commodity Futures arena.

Personal Investing Thoughts: Cash. Bearish outlook for the market. Expecting, by the time this has played out? For 35% drawdown from highs for this bear market; but who knows, as bottoms are a process, not an event. Personal ideas? Open Swiss Bank Account with $10,000.00 USD, and start diversifying into foreign currencies. 1) Yen 2) Swiss Franc 3) U.S. Dollar 4) Euro and 5) Chinese Hyuan. I have to update my Passport I guess, and get all the paperwork for the introducing broker.


I've been answering some of the questions that have been thrown my way lately. One of which? Is have I ever thought of working for a fund? Have I ever thought of becoming an investment adviser? Of getting some licenses?

This is not an investment or trading recommendation. The losses in trading can be very real, and depending on the investment vehicle, can exceed your initial investment. I am not a licensed trading or investment adviser, or financial planner. But I do have 12 years of experience in trading and investing in these markets.
