End Of The Road?

A slowing of the trend in the S&P 500 over the past few sessions has evolved into a more pronounced sell off overnight, and by the time you read this my ongoing E-Mini long campaign may have already met its maker. And that would be perfectly fine as we’ve been riding this rally way beyond expectation. And I mean that in a strictly technical sense and not an emotional one. A 3R or 4R winner is considered a very good run these days, especially given the increase in intra-day volatility over the past few years. More than double that should always be considered the rare exception, rather than the norm. That fact of course does little to prevent most retail participants from [...]

Still Room To The Top

It’s lonely at the top, so the saying goes. But we’re not even at the top yet and I am already noticing a distinct lack of good company.

Almost to emphasize the very point I made in last Friday’s post, Milo Yiannopoulos has now apparently found himself in the crosshairs of the mainstream media for alleged pedophilia related remarks he made sometime last year.

Enjoy The Silence

I must be among a small handful of clueless contemporaries who had been blissfully unaware of the existence of the Youtube blogger PewDiePie, a Swedish millenial who apparently amassed over 50 Million subscribers and raked in over $7 Million a year in ad revenues. My first thought was that I must be doing something horribly wrong or that I may be in the wrong business. So just as I was getting all oiled up to deliver my first shirtless videocast I became aware of what all the hubbub had been about and thus quickly changed my mind.
