When Articles were sent
by Train to the Magazine....
In those times to be a correspondent
from a little village for a local
newspaper meant to live in a world
that today makes you laugh: fax had
still to be invented, articles were
sent in a special yellow envelope by
train to the central newsroom by 4
p.m. every day, and on bike every
day I was visiting the local police
station, the court, the hospital and
… the cemetery … always hungry
for news. Since 1993 my focus
as a journalist became the stock
exchange and the financial markets:
I started with a very clear idea in my
mind… ie, to cover financial markets
as a journalist is much easier since
you do not need to move from
home, no bike, no standing up all
day in a court, no car crashes in
the night. And I wrote about the
markets for another 22 years, which
means a life. Why this introductory
long talk ? Now you know why I am
back on TRADERS’ magazine: I like
you, I like my readers. I have been
writing for a life and sometimes if
you do not write you feel that you
are dead. Silence for a journalist
is fatal: you must write, you must
talk, it makes you feel that you
exist in real. I have been posting
a column for TRADERS’ Mag UK
and Germany for 3 years in a row
from 2009 up to 2012 and on my
facebook page I got more than 800
friends from abroad out of 1400 in
total, people that in many cases
expressed their appreciation for my
books in English, for my talks, for
my articles, both technical and also
the lighter ones. How can you live
without them ? So Market Rap is
back, we have a long journey ahead,
and we will not talk simply about
markets, because markets are the
result of human action so that first
you talk about people and then you
A man can have different lives. My readers know that I have at least two. I am Adjunct Professor
of Corporate Finance at the University of Bologna but also a quant trader. But early in my life back
in 1983 I started a career as a journalist with a stunning interview to a local politician announcing
the opening of a nursery in a little village forgotten by God in North Italy, an interview that made
history .. as you can imagine.
Dr. Emilio Tomasini is Adjunct Professor of Corporate
Finance at the University of Bologna, Italy, where he is also
Chief Editor of the Italian TRADERS’ MAG edition. He is
a leading authority in Europe for quantitative trading and
now he writes in English his legendary stock picks on www.

understand markets. This is the
nice aspect of this job, which seems
to be made up only with numbers
but believe me, this is false. Man is
the hallmark of financial markets.
Otherwise why would I be back if
I would have been a number? We
have a long journey ahead, stay
tuned !
