Kurt KoenigDateline: Observations and commentary about government, financial markets, organizations a
Just a Midwestern boy. Had a great education: born in Chicago, went to school in a downstate suburb (small town actually), and worked on farms. Been reading the Wall Street Journal since 1968. Went to college in the ‘70’s and been involved with financial markets beginning in 1973. Being familiar with Chicago, Illinois and Washington politics has provided some additional education a person can’t get from Harvard or Georgetown. Disclaimer: I trade securities, exchange – traded derivatives and currencies. The majority of my action is in short – term trading of index ETF’s. If I plan to take a position in an individual security or commodity (with the exception of the precious metal complex) I will disclose that intent or action in a timely manner.
