Jeffrey Jones' Summary

Here's what I know how to do:

1) INVESTMENT STRATEGY. I've been investing and analyzing investments as long as I can remember. Stocks, bonds, commodities, gold, hedge funds, quantitative trading systems, private equity, you name it. When I was a kid it was stuff like swapping baseball cards and other collectibles for progressively more valuable versions of the same. In one sense, strategy (and asset valuation) is the only thing my brain really knows how to do. The good news is that the realm of finance has endless opportunities for strategy and an endless need for people who excel at it.

2) TECHNOLOGY & COMPUTING. The only thing I've been involved with longer than finance is technology. It started with building computers when I was a kid and programming games for my TI-85 calculator. Then it was writing webpages while minoring in computer programming at UCLA. And eventually it became helping investment firms develop and refine algorithmic trading & research systems while also building custom CRM databases in Access. There's not much else in life I enjoy more than solving problems, so technology and I have always gotten along spectacularly well.

3) PUBLISHING. Somewhere along the line I started writing. Wow. Talk about a life-changer. Not only has it helped the firms I've worked with protect and grow their profitability, it proved invaluable in helping start up a few new businesses. As icing on the cake, it brought me an unrivaled sense of personal satisfaction. Seriously. I write 3000 words a week for newsletter that doesn't earn a dime and no professional endeavor has ever made me happier. Whether it's an esoteric economic concept or the value proposition that a start-up can bring to the marketplace, written communication is a difficult thing for most, but I get excited by any challenge that can make use of that skill set.

    In the last decade the world has witnessed tremendous volatility. Even more uncertainty lurks in the next. Never in our lifetimes has it been such a difficult time to be an investor.

    Hedge fund manager and popular newsletter writer Jeffrey Dow Jones cuts through the confusion about the future and highlights some of the most powerful trends shaping the economy to come. The result is a sensible, flexible investment strategy that’s easy to implement – whether you’re an investor at home or an industry professional.

    The Trade of the Decade is an inside look into the world of high finance. It shares some of the secrets that the world’s elite fund managers use to build their investment portfolios. And it’s written in a language that any investor can enjoy, regardless of their level of experience.

    “Since the 1970s I’ve interviewed more financial analysts than anyone on the planet. I’d definitely rank Jeff Jones’ insights & strategies near the top of any savvy investor’s list.” — Joe Bradley, publisher of Investor’s Hotline
