With a new administration on its way in and growing concerns about the Fed’s unmitigated money printing initiatives many are starting to wonder if the big stock market party of the Trump years is finally over and where we may go from here. Given that social spending is expected to massively increase along with taxation in the upper income brackets the dynamics that have been driving the market could rapidly be shifting.
As we are all in dire need of a bit of distraction from all the chaos I decided to start a new tradition here on Evil Speculator. Whenever I run into a good mix or new tune that tickles my fancy I’ll post it here over the weekend. The great honor of being our first is Anthony Rother*, a German based artist (I am not sure he’s actually a Kraut), that for some strange reason managed to escape my periphery which is a bit surprising to say the least:
Social media giants have been channeling their inner Wile E. Coyote over the past few days for rather obvious reasons you are most likely aware of but which clearly fall outside the context of what we do and worry about here at Evil Speculator. Again, there is a myriad of places that relish in that kind of discourse and if you feel like yelling at and insulting people you’ve never met on the Internet you’ll be much better off over there. So let’s put our respective political ideologies on ice for a moment and simply look at what’s going on from a purely strategic perspective. Or in other words – how we can we take advantage?
If there is one unrewarding duty I continue to claim my own then it is to caution you against relating your trading activities with your own personal beliefs, may they be ideological, political, spiritual, religious, or otherwise. I am not saying you should abandon them in any way. Quite on the contrary – they may be the ones that keep you sane as a human being, especially in these trying times. Bu if you hazard in participating in the big game you will have to force yourself to draw a clear line between your actions as a trader and any other pursuits or interests in life.
