No Casual Fridays At The Lair

Sorry guys but casual Friday will have to be postponed until further notice as we’re too busy banking coin and taking numbers. On top of a veritable laundry list of winning campaigns over the past few weeks we managed to grab a very fortuitous entry on the E-Mini yesterday right ahead of the opening bell. As I was a bit pressed for time Thursday morning I thought it worthwhile to share some of my pertinent perspectives today, i.e. what caused me to suggest this campaign in the first place and how my initial beliefs were confirmed later in the session.

Jobless Claims Entry Opportunity

At Evil Speculator we’re always hiring, not in the sense that we’re employing anyone, but no matter where you live, how old (or young) or whatever your skin color may be, everyone is free to participate.

Always Follow The Money

Before you do anything else I encourage you to catch up on my previous post which covers this week’s top and bottom performing stock symbols in the S&P 500. I’m actually considering to add small caps as well to widen our stock universe by a bit, what do you guys think? Anyway, today is a bit of a strange day here in Valencia as the 9th of October is officially a ‘día festivo’ celebrating the arrival of Jaume I ‘El Conquistador’ on this day in 1238 who managed to end several hundred yeas of Muslim rule over the region. However it’s fair to say that the mood here is a bit somber today as the situation in Catalonia is increasingly spinning [...]
