About Me

  • About PhilBeachBoy
    Past is Prologue: I first set foot on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade in 1956, when I wa four years old as a guest of a member, my father. Self-assured gentlemen in multi-colorred trading jackets flailed their arms and hurriedly rushed between pits, spewing torn up trading cards, discarded orders and other detritus of the trading process accross the floor. The activity made the floor shake like a herd of buffalo was coming through. I didn't have a clue what was going on in that chaotic choreography but was later to learn that my family controlled a large percentage of the wheat brokerage on that floor, was a primary clearing house and that such rooms were to be my destiny. From sixteen years old, I worked as a runner on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and did what was to later be called technical analysis for Barry Lind and company. Fourteen hour days were my norm as the passion took hold. At twenty one, I became the youngest member of the Merc and was partners in Levy International, one of the first two firms in the Country to be sanctioned to arbitrage Currency with the International Banks. We maintained postions of upwards of half a billion dollars that we adjusted in response to the needs ofhedgers, speculators and exchange customers to facilitate their needs for positioning and currency exposure mitigation. We made money almost every day because we had a persistent, reliable edge and a disciplined implementation of a sound methodology. The currencies were moving in dramatic trends that arbitrage could not extract profit from so I also became specialized in fundamental analysis and rudimentary technical analysis as decision support for outright positions. One day in analyzing a Deutchmark chart, a miracle appeared; I decomposed the price data into partial derivatives:cycles and subcycles danced in harmonic bliss...There was ORDER. I have now designed an automated approach & seek proficient NinjaScript Programmer for coding.
