I have been trading markets since 1998. From 2005 up today I was trading professional for big banks and institutions, managing bank’s books portfolios up to 5billion in bonds. I have also been market maker in the Greek government bond market and chief FX trader during my various trading positions throughout the years.
My first experience with stocks was in the Greek stockmarket, where I managed to tenfold my initial capital, as I was in the big ’99 rally. Where the Greek general index raised from 1200 to more than 6000! That experience had an tremendous effect to my career, cause I never got involved in the engineering business, eventhough I managed to graduate from one of the top engineering universities. But that first experience in stock trading changed my life! Of course, as inexperience I was invested when the selloff began I lost almost all of my profits, but managed to book a relative adequate portion to use it as investment capital in my trading career that had just started!
