, , No Comments
Yesterday, I bought a couple of new books.

Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt

Liar's Poker (25th Anniversary Edition)

Capital in the Twenty-First Century
The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine
It was after I watched the movie The Big Short for the second time.

I have been doing a lot of work lately around economic analysis, financial analysis and investment. I am extremely interested in understanding how they all interplay and how I can profit off the knowledge. 

Like today, at about 4:30am I managed to get to work a trend scrapper for a big economic indicator project. Been working on it for two weeks. The project has helped open my eyes to how there is a business in every news or even tweet. That everything is interconnected and opportunities abound to anyone who can find the patterns in all that is happening -- tying everyday happenings to the bigger economy, to specific companies and to the financial markets. 

Michael Lewis, the author of all except one of those books I bought, has been generous enough to explain from an insider's view, how people in the financial markets profit off everything in the US. And for me that is like reading the future in Nigeria, as our financial markets are decades behind the US one. I hope to learn practical tips that I can deploy profitably here in Nigeria. To be able to read the signs, to know which processes to put in place and which system to be a part of.

And as usual I will share whatever interesting useful find I make.
