Who am I?

My name is Peter Kiss, and I’m a Portfolio Manager at an Investment Fund Management company focused on real estate investments, based in Budapest, Hungary. I’ve been investing in stocks since 2002 when my insurance policy paid out roughly USD 600 for an accident. I was immediately hooked on charts/charting when I took a class on Technical Analysis at Corvinus University and read a few introductory books following up on it.

I passed the Level III exam of CMT in 2016 and earned membership status and CMT designation in early 2017.

What is this blog?

This blog is about charts related to real estate. All sorts of charts, from IMF’s Global Housing Watch chart to Relative Rotation Graphs of real estate ETFs in Bloomberg. With this blog, I want to structure my thinking by putting on digital paper my ideas. So first and foremost this is for me, and not about selling something or providing marketing materials.
I wish to be a better investor and better thinker.

The ideas, thoughts, views and mistakes contained in this blog are solely mine, not those of my employer. I will sometimes post random thoughts which might not be related to real estate, but somehow connected to stocks, the economy or investing.

What is it not?

This is not a blog with investment advice or recommendations to buy or sell anything. Most importantly, I strictly don’t want to sell or give publicity to my employer’s funds. This blog is not about the residential market or a how-to-get-rich-quick-flipping-houses type of website. I am also not a propagator of investing in real estate – either directly or through securities -, not recommending to overweight this asset class and not trying to convince you to put your money in properties or REITs or ETFs. I just want to gather as much information as possible about property markets around the world.

Hope you will enjoy it as much as I am. Feedback/suggestions are welcomed.
