The Jump Up blog is about the synthesis of intelligence and wisdom to make better investment decisions. Jump Up! is deeply ensconced between the space where the worlds of investment opportunities, human misjudgement and cognitive dissonances collide and come together.

Behind the Scenes

There is this guy, goes by the name of Soham Das who curates this blog and the thinking behind it. He had been in the past a quantitative fund manager, strategy developer and media profiled trader. He had been always a constant believer in the adage that, “real wealth is made only in the long run”. You can find me on on twitter.

    Hey Buddy – Good site with excellent analysis. Coincidentally, my thought process in starting a blog was vaguely similar to yours though I don’t boast of great analytical skills, so my posts always reflect my state of mind – all muddled up 🙂 Maybe, I fall into the second category of people described by you 🙂 Anyways, my path to this site – Google alerts on Infosys -> Seeking Alpha article on Infosys Patents. I was gonna write about that story but saw your article which covered it in much more great detail. Keep up the good work. I will be following your blog…. Hope you continue to keep in interesting…! Good luck…
