Analytical. Ambitious. Asset.

 I believe in the three A's, being analytical, ambitious and an asset to my employer. This means that all three of the big rating agencies; Moody's, S&P and Fitch have given me an investment rating of AAA.

Ambitious.

Desire and determination to achieve success.

"Mark is a determinated young man, he stays strong and powers on through courses, extracurricular activities, projects and more. The goals are big and the dedication is there too. "

Investment management

In my spare time practice investment analysis and investment management by doing a lot of paper trading and simulated investing. I've tried Aktiedysten, Børsens Aktiespil, Webull, TD ameritrade, SaxoBank simulated trading and a few others. I mostly invest in stocks as It's commonly know, but I've also tried trading bonds, FX and commodities. 


Strategy games

I've enjoyed strategy games ever since I was introduced to them as a child, I was introduced to chess very early on and I still enjoy it to this day. In my teens I was introduced to RTS games, such as Warcraft and Starcraft, a type of game I later turned to and I've reach a top 10% rating in Starcraft, reach as high as Diamond 1. In recent years I've enjoyed the newest development in the genre, namely Auto battlers, where I've played a bit competitevely but never done it ambitiously.

Graphics design/visuel communication

At an early age I developed a talent for graphical design, arts and drawing. I've later enjoyed the benefits of this talent in website design, document design and in the my work with communication of complex subjects to all sorts of people.


TD Ameritrade, has this platform called Thinkorswim, which has a papertrading option. I've used it for simulating my considerations and practice in investment analysis

Starcraft is a Real-time-strategy(RTS) game, which focuses on economy, building orders and strategic confrontations, much like with chess, but rather more fast paced

 I am currently maintaining a series of smaller hobby projects related to mathematical finance, risk management and investment analysis. One such project is a project on price movements and price manipulation on the virtual roleplaying game, World of Warcraft. Where I've found there is a working auction house system, which other players can participate in.

World of Warcraft auction house price manipulation

By using the world of warcraft auction house system I can without the use of real money practice the buying low and selling high idea. Because of the player participation, I can also at the same time get an idea of how people will react to price manipulation and what their response will be. Starting with the prices on Linen cloth, a common commodity used in the tailoring profession, After earning a set amount on this sort of trading, I move into more desirable markets, such as rune cloth, which is used to make equipment for competitive raiding events. 


My future plan, is to make a daily measure on the price of certain commodities on the auction house, than to compare it as it grows, shrinks or stays the same, while I try to push the prices
