Stock Investment Expert

John Thomas is a 50-year veteran of the financial markets and has the scars to prove it. From the 1970’s, he worked as the Tokyo correspondent for The Economist and Financial Times, covering China’s Cultural Revolution and the Vietnam War. During the great bull market of the 1980’s he ran the institutional equity trading desk at Morgan Stanley, and personally covered the Persian Gulf countries. In Operation Desert Storm he flew special ops as a combat pilot for the US Marine Corps.

In the nineties, he founded the first international dedicated hedge fund. He sold the business for a huge profit in 1999 and retired in west Texas. Foreseeing a major market crash and missing the adrenaline of the financial markets, he founded the Diary of a Mad Hedge Fund Trader in 2008. His goal is to broaden individual understanding of the techniques and strategies employed by the most successful hedge funds so that they can more profitably manage their own money. Followers of his Trade Alert service have earned an average annual return of 35.33%. Why the call him “Mad” he will never understand.
