About Investment Capitalist
Investment Capitalist presents a unique global macro perspective of financial markets, technology and the geo-political landscape affecting market movements. Also, the constantly changing "micro-structure" of the market is something you will be kept abreast of. This term refers to the plethora of "lit" and "dark" pools of liquidity, the countless number of ECN's and their rebates and fees, the infinite number of execution algorithms designed to make an institutional trader fat and lazy but only serve to alert predatory algorithms that an order is being worked passively in the market. The predatory algorithm takes some liquidity and immediately flips it to the passive algo for a quick few cents and continues to do this until the average "fill price" on the ticket starts to veer too far from VWAP, risking the fat man’s job. The Algo's have taken over the asylum!

Blog Description: The Investment Capitalist always has an eye towards the future and an ear-to-the-ground while consulting on the present. Watching developed economies while visiting emerging and frontier markets to get a look and feel for what is really happening, not what the IMF is reporting. In case you haven’t heard, the Nasdaq and NYSE aren’t the only games in town. Some emerging markets off the grid are up triple digits at times when the US markets are down high double digits. Founded by a hedge fund manager who moved from NY to Orange County, California, and launched as a hobby, it has rapidly become the focal point of thousands of Institutional and Buy-Side Traders looking for real color on the markets. Color that will move markets multiple deviations from the mean, if not immediately, then soon. But with enough lead time to help you get positioned. The authors are always accessible and will help you figure out how to play a macro theme properly by posting it on the blog or taking the occasional email. With a pulse on developing technologies in Bio-Pharma, Computer Sciences, Technology, Commodities, Supply Chains, and "Elephant" footsteps that are repositioning in the markets, we love to share this info with those that care. Just visit the site or read the info here on SA but remember, the latter doesn’t pick up everything, just a few here and there. Readers will always find unique insights, often surprising, sometimes hilarious and almost always dead-on. Lastly, the founder has a great deal of knowledge on "pay to play" proprietary bucket shops. By making sure those not playing by the rules are visited by the SEC. If you have any questions about where you trade, it's best to ask an expert before you find the door to your "former" office locked.
