I am Joseph Falck, and I am a stock trader in NYC, U.S.

I have an MBA from Harvard, and have been in the trading world for just over a decade. I have run a stock trading consulting business for the last 3 years after leaving a trading firm, and am looking forward to continuing to grow my portfolio and those of my friends, family, and clients.

I am not a guru when it comes to trading, and there are many that have likely forgotten more about the subject than I will ever know, but I do understand and apply a principle lauded by some of the most successful in my industry: consistent awareness and research.

This blog is for my friends and clients who are looking for some basic understanding of how trading works, why it is important to keep your eye on the ball (global events that affect economies in particular), and other insights I have gained over my career.
