Introducing: Markets Aurelius
Strat has a friend...and DYD has a new writer!
It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for.
Hello, subscribers of Theta Thoughts! Glad to be with you. For starters, I’d like to congratulate you. Congratulations on making it through the seemingly endless days, weeks, and months filled with nothing but Strat’s “writing” and cold-ass takes — I’m here to tell you that it’s over, you made it, and you’ll never have to look back.
That’s because yours truly has officially entered the building. My “name” is Markets Aurelius and I couldn’t be more hyped to join Strat and you all with our latest development, Due Your Diligence.
Basically, the idea here is to take the amazing community and analysis Strat has created in Theta Thoughts and blow it the fuck up. We want to go bigger, do more, provide even better takes, and expand our coverage universe to the max.
Like your boy Strat-O, I’m also a student, set to graduate in May (fingers crossed) with a dual degree in Economics and Finance. On-campus, I manage a +$1.2mn portfolio of our endowment and run a volunteer group where we attempt to teach kids financial literacy. Off-campus, the more sophisticated among you may be readers of WSO’s “The Daily Peel”, of which I have been the sole author since its launch in July 2021. In a few short months, I’ll be entering the “professional” world working in wealth management for one of the largest banks in the world…so wish me luck! (I’ll need it)
My start here at DYD will be slow, but I promise you’ll at least learn something, be entertained, or have something to make fun of (likely all three). Just so we’re on the same page, I’ll cover:
Crypto (from shitcoins to NFTs)
P2P Gambling Markets
Memes, FinTwit, Reddit, etc.
Fundamental & Technical Analysis
Politics (the shit that affects markets)
Education & Misconceptions
Investing “philosophy” (if that’s truly a thing)
And whatever else you guys want
Saying that I’m open to suggestions is an understatement. If you ask for it, I’ll cover it. If you can bet on it in any way, I’ll cover it. Ask and you shall receive.
That’s it from me for now. I’m still writing The Daily Peel for the time being, but expect my contributions here to normalize towards the end of May. My first attempt at a piece for DYD will be in the coming weeks, on date TBD. I hope to see you there.
