Hi, just wanted to know people's opinions on the study of pure economics (i.e. B. Economics) and its applications on trading + investment. I want to have the most Knowledge I can have and believe understanding the basics (supply + demand, GDP, business Cycles, Economic Indicators...)in detail is extremely important. what are peoples opinions on topics like econometrics and financial econometrics? what kind of analysis are people in the forum using (fundemental, technical, quantitave?) and what are there reasons for trading and investing? The ONLY reason people trade and invest is to make money, and studying people who have made lots of money can help us enourmously in our trading educations. Rene Rivkin is a fundementalist, Warren Buffett is a primarily a fundementalist, so what is the best type of analysis to use so i can make plenty of kish-cash$$$$$?????
