Gary Tanashian of biiwii.com successfully owned and operated a progressive medical component manufacturing company for 21 years, keeping the company’s fundamentals in alignment with global economic realities through various economic cycles. The natural progression from this experience is an understanding of and appreciation for global macro-economics as it relates to individual markets and sectors.
Biiwii.com was created solely as a way to help get the message out about deeply rooted problems with too much debt and leverage within the financial system. Our concerns were confirmed and our message proven justified 3 to 4 years later as the system began to purge these distortions, resulting in a climactic washout extending from October, 2008 to March, 2009.
Yet ironically enough the URL ‘biiwii.com’ came from the old saying ‘but it is what it is’ and indeed this sentiment addressed the need to remain impartial (bullish or bearish as the situation dictates) despite personal beliefs. Over the long-term, the world changes and any successful market participant must be ready to accept changes or revisions to a given plan.
Along the way, a geek-like interest in technical analysis, a long-time interest in human psychology and various unique macro market ratio indicators were added to the mix, with the result being a financial market newsletter (and dynamic interim updates), Notes From the Rabbit Hole (NFTRH) that combines these attributes to provide a service that is engaged and successful in all market environments by employing risk management first, and opportunity for speculation second.
Since 2004 our work has been featured at financial websites like MarketWatch, SeekingAlpha, Safehaven, GoldSeek and many more, and was even reproduced (without permission or proper attribution, we might add ) by Richard Russell in Dow Theory Letters. Our very first public article set a course for a unique analytical style that has kept us on the right side of an increasingly complex global macro fundamental system every step of the way since.
