This blog has morphed from a discussion of poker hands and theory into an evaluation of financial markets from the point of view of a former trader

Kid Dynamite spent 8 years as a trader at a major Wall Street investment bank. From June 1999 thru April 2005 he specialized in portfolio trading, and from May 2005 thru November 2007 he was the head trader for an internal hedge fund on the buy side of the same firm where he managed a multi-billion dollar merger arbitrage portfolio, and continued to implement portfolio trading related strategies as well.

Now Kid Dynamite lives in the woods of New Hampshire, makes maple syrup, tends to his garden, and spends his time trying to correct erroneous hype all over the internet.

Please see my “welcome”  post for more on what kind of topics I get into on this blog.
