2018 First Impressions

Welcome back! I hope some of you enjoyed a quiet and relaxing time away from charts and the never ending drama of our financial markets. I wish I was that lucky but as almost every year I somehow find myself stuck catching up on a myriad of chores, reading assignments, and various project related tasks. That’s right, the action (and the screaming) never stops down here at the evil lair. Now I was actually planning on ripping the lid off a major new initiative I have planned for you guys but I’m running a bit behind so let’s just take a gander at some of our key markets.

Barbarians At The Gate

This doesn’t seem to be my month as I had an extremely crappy day yesterday. And I’m not even referring to the almost instant stop outs I racked up on the E-Mini and the EUR/USD (fortunately position sizing was small in anticipation of monkey business). So what happened was that I got in touch with my hosting company about some strange errors a few readers and I kept seeing when loading the site. Some sys admin at my hosting firm decided to dig deeper and then came back saying that evilspeculator had suffered an SQL injection attack and that the entire database most likely would have to be rebuilt. YIKES!!! Relax – it turned out to be bullpucky and everything is [...]
