I leave it up to you to decide whether its due to sheer luck or perhaps skill but we actually seem to be accumulating pretty decent exposure and there’s more waiting in the bullpen (see below). It has always been my opinion that the true skill of a trader reveals itself not by what he/she does during the easy times but by how he/she operates during those nerve wrecking periods when things tend to get messy. And to be clear – this doesn’t necessarily mean a necessity to take action or to attempt to ‘beat the market’ at its own game – which obviously none of us will ever be able to do.
I was recently encouraged by a reader to move my entire domain to SSL which was something I had been planning for a quite a while but kept forgetting due to my ever growing workload. However then Google suddenly sends me a notification yesterday which stated that any pages with password fields served via HTTP are going to flag a warning, starting… and get this: January 1st, 2017. Well, thanks a lot Google for the timely reminder!
Welcome back, I trust you enjoyed a lovely and relaxing Easter holiday weekend. It’s actually still going on over here in (catholic) Spain and many other European nations which continue to officially observe Easter Monday. So it’s safe to say that I probably have the questionable honor of being the only person working in Spain today! Well me and the local drug dealers who unfortunately seem to have been replicating like rabbits here in Valencia over the past few years.
It’s been a great first quarter for us all and I propose to spread it around a little and celebrate Easter in style. So how about surprising your little ones with a Fabergé nestegg instead of some crusty old chicken egg laced with industrial Chinese paint. A little too pricey for you or you weren’t able to find $33 Million under your couch cushions? Well, try not to look like a complete loser and at least get yourself a few dozen gold plated chicken eggs at the low price of $138 – each that is. I’m sure for that deal their phones are ringing off the hook right now. Crikey – I’m in the wrong damn business!
