Gold Flushed Down River

I find history absolutely fascinating and especially the exploration of the Western frontier during the 19th century has always fueled my imagination. The featured image depicting three prospectors was taken in 1886 by a man called John C.H. Grabill who documented frontier life throughout Colorado, South Dakota, and Wyoming during the late 19th century. Imagine for a moment what must have motivated these men to abandon known civilization and relative comfort just to venture into the wild to seek their fortunes.

Up Is Down

Clearly the tape is toying with us and the fact that it’s OPEX Friday ain’t helping our cause. When faced with excessive tapemockery™ my general advice is to simply stay back and hunker down in anticipation of better trading conditions. No occasional surprise move along your trading direction is worth the mental turmoil and slew of losses you will most definitely have to endure in between. And remember – it’s late summer and although the rumor mills are churning out hype and biased opinions at full blast actual market participation remains muted. Not exactly what I would call prime trading estate for banking coin. Remember: You can’t force the market to [...]
