I received a few lessons from the market when I started trading. Thankfully these were cheap so I took it as a crash course in investing.

My theoretical knowledge of the market was not sufficient to prevent this. I hate to see people lose money, especially if it is preventable. So I decided to start this blog to share some theoretical and practical ideas to help others reduce risk.

I have always been interested in financial instruments, stocks, bonds, derivatives. I started to understand them better as part of my MBA. Of course you don’t need an MBA or a degree in finance to trade or invest.

However, I’d certainly recommend a good understanding of mathematics. As the saying goes the math doesn’t lie but the numbers are sensitive creatures and if you massage them well enough they will tell you whatever you want.

There is a lot of information out there so the purpose of this blog is to be slightly different. I will use other disciplines such as probability, statistics and economics alongside finance.

Unlike the mainstream financial media I will not involve any news or politics in the mix. Such information is mostly noise and serves no useful purpose. It may receive minimal coverage only if necessary. Everything written here will be about making money, nothing more, nothing less.
