Truth Understood Compels Belief

As you do unto others, you do unto yourself.


Any moment can end up the last time you have that experience, each second in consciousness stands unique and distinct from the next, never to return again. Savor it, thank your lucky stars, and grok the next. You might not know when something shall be the last time you experience it.

The Blog is Dead, Long Live the Blog

More than a decade has past since I began emptying my head of thoughts and placing them in this virtual receptacle. Though my consistency lacks rigor, a modicum of amusement always arises when I look back at past ideas I found compelling. This project began as a trading journal of sorts, a thread to help…

Back Into The Foxholes

Well the bounce was short lived and we are back to murdering longs with tales of Greek default and collapsing communists.

The Almighty Dollar will rise like a phoenix from…

I’m Beginning To $SPY The Light

Treasury Time

Not surprising but worth noting, TLT is showing up on my list of rising products with large short positions, coinciding with the Bullidex making fresh lows as the markets continue to weaken. Stay liquid.
