Ambitious Person To Research and Write about Commodities, Stocks, Crypto Assets, and World Markets

Post Date: August 10, 2018

Legacy Research Group's team, part of The Agora Companies, is growing and a new spot has opened up for an ambitious person to research and write about commodities, stocks, crypto assets, and world markets.

For this position, you’ll work directly with Nick Giambruno, on The Casey Report and Crisis Investing. If that sounds stimulating, keep reading for more details and how to apply.

Who They Are

They’re a fast-growing company with all the opportunities of a small start-up and the stability of a deep-pocketed firm with a 30-year track record.

They publish half a dozen advisories covering finance and economics. They have hundreds of thousands of readers around the world. Their business is providing profitable ideas, explaining how the markets really work, and telling great stories.

They’re completely independent and unbiased. They don’t take money from Wall Street or the government. Their revenue comes from selling subscriptions. They only make money if their readers are happy. 

The Job They Need Done 

They’re looking for someone who loves to analyze investments. Someone who wants to make a living reading, thinking, traveling, and writing. Someone who can help them share big ideas with the world. 

If this sounds attractive—and you meet the criteria above—they’d love to hear from you.

The compensation will depend on your level of experience. Know this… dozens of analysts at The Agora Companies who write newsletters have become millionaires.

Who You Are

You’re able to analyze assets from macro, technical, fundamental, and sentiment perspectives. You’re overflowing with investment and trading ideas. And you’re a voracious consumer of information.

You have a genuine passion for finance and the investment industry. You’re intensely curious, and live and breathe the world’s markets. And you’re willing to travel anywhere and everywhere. You’re ready to improvise, adapt, and overcome.

You’re a good thinker, a good storyteller, and a good writer. You’re also good company—the one your friends say is the smartest person in the room.

“Must-Haves”

  • Current Casey Research subscriber.
  • Affinity for Austrian economics, monetary history, financial markets, and general history.
  • Personal philosophy of voluntarism, anarcho-capitalism, or something similar.
  • Independent thinker who is passionate, motivated, and eager to overachieve.
  • Keen eye for good stories and big ideas.
  • Exceptional writing ability or a willingness to learn how to write.

What to Do Now

  1. Send them a basic resume. They’d like to see where you’ve worked.
  2. Write a letter telling them about yourself. They don’t care much about what school you went to. They do care what you’ve learned doing whatever it is you’ve been doing. They appreciate odd jobs, but they’ll also consider Wall Street refugees.
  3. Send us an email with the following information:
    • Your full name.
    • The net gain on 10 shares of McDonald’s stock purchased Jan. 3, 2007 and sold Jan. 3, 2017, assuming all dividends were reinvested.
    • The top three biggest risks to the global economy.
    • The cause of the Great Depression in the US.
    • Why the average person’s standard of living has declined since the early 1970s.
    • Can governments shut down bitcoin? Why or why not?
  4. Prepare for conversation and travel. If you have what they’re looking for, they’ll start out with a one-on-one conversation. If that goes well, they’ll fly you to Delray Beach for a full day of interviews. And, if that also goes well, we’ll discuss the next steps.
