Well, here I am in England.
Between moving out of my apartment near Boston, getting over here, and getting the admin stuff sorted out on this end it’s been an intense couple of weeks. Things are starting to settle out, though. By the end of this week I should have an idea of what my schedule is going to look like. I’m very much looking forward to getting back into some kind of rhythm.
On the negative side, I don’t have access to the same sort of information I had working as an analyst – particularly on a real-time basis. In fact, I don’t even have a TV in my new place, so I can’t just flip on CNBC as I normally would have done. There are ways to overcome those obstacles, though.
On the plus side, I no longer have the constraints of working for a firm in the business of producing market analysis and under the constraints of being a Registered Investment Adviser with the SEC. That means I now have considerably more freedom in my endeavors to educate and discuss the markets.
And of course my ongoing research in the area of Behavioral Finance, and specifically trader performance, will allow me to go deeper in my trader development efforts and provide answers where perhaps previously there were only hints and conjecture.
In short, I’m quite looking forward to what’s coming.
