I bought my very first gold mining stock in 2015, a few months before the end of the 2011-15 commodity bear market. I invested in bitcoin in 2016, with my friends and colleagues telling me I’m throwing my hard earned money away on a crazy speculation. While my peers were investing in Indian public sector banks or the flavor-of-the-day Mutual Fund, I was investing in USD denominated assets to save myself from rupee depreciation.

How did I know to do that? I studied business, history, finance and Austrian economics, found my calling in trading and investing in the global markets, and fully immersed myself in the deceptively simple quest of buying low and selling high.

Until recently, I was a junior analyst at The Dollar Vigilante where I focused on covering the precious metals space and other niche sectors like uranium and shipping.
