“Memory is a way of holding on to the things that you love, the things that you are, the things you never want to lose”.
Old timers in the Forex markets would remember their daily dose of Elliott Wave Analysis that appeared on SCXE, CHMC and later NBKG. Many heads of trading floors have told me that they start their day by opening these pages! I managed to save some printouts for you, just to drive down the memory lane and remember the past. Enjoy!
When Chemical Bank merged with Chase Manhattan Bank in 1996, a policy decision was taken by Chemical’s management to close down several of its regional treasuries. Being desirous of staying in the region, I moved to National Bank of Kuwait, where NBKG came to life. I stayed with them until one fine morning I got a call from Andy Krieger, the legendary Wall Street trader, asking if I could join him in advising one of the world’s richest men. So it was curtains for NBKG in 1999. Several die hard fans kept in touch by email, but a huge number of traders were suddenly ‘orphaned’ by the disappearance of their favorite commentary. This blog is an effort to reach out to them as well.
