When it comes to financial news in particular, can you remember reading a single bullish headline over the past week? Or perhaps over the past month? The past year? Past decade? Me neither. Instead it’s been doom & gloom every step on the way up from SPX 667 back in 2008 to now over 3300 eleven and some years later. If nothing else the political culture war triggered by the election of Donald J. Trump has only served to exacerbate a mainstream media landscape addicted to that next juicy bit of angst inciting clickbait.
Remember when I introduced not one but two masterclasses about a month ago?
First my Price Action Masterclass– a comprehensive tutorial on reading and understanding price action without the use of superfluous indicators.
Second my System Building Masterclass– a massive tutorial on building non-fragile trading systems that stand the test of time.
This is going to be a quick post as we’re still in the mist of packing and are scheduled to hitch a plane for Trieste, Italy in a few hours. From there we’ll be renting a car and then head into beautiful Slovenia for a weekend stint at Lake Bled (shown above). Honestly I wish the weather would be as nice as in the picture but just like earlier this year in France we’re out of luck in the weather department as the forecast shows almost continuous rain for the next week.
I’m going to be out of commission today as I just came back from getting a root canal. If you’ve been visiting lately then you are aware that I have been dealing with an infected dental nerve for the past two months. Turns out one of my older crowns somehow had failed and over time a ton of caries had developed underneath. Yikes!
