Never heard of me? It’s all good, I’m a quiet equity partner here at iBankCoin. For those of you who do know me, it’s such a pleasure to write this post for you. For those who don’t know me, I blogged on iBC for over 2 years as a top technical analyst then I went on to blog at Chart.ly, briefly, then onto Stocktwits as ChartsGoneWild with StocktwitsTV. I have written almost 2,000 posts (combined on all sites) in 4 years, recorded over 100 StocktwitsTV shows, ran my coaching program and chat rooms, written a chapter in the published Stocktwits Edge (Wiley Finance, 2011), and somehow still remain in the Top 50 on Investimonials after 2 years of inactivity. So great, now you know that I’m not some random shitbag off the block! This is my first post on iBC in 4 1/2 years.
What have I been up to for 4 1/2 years? I went back to get even more formal education and I’ve dangerously worked with a friend’s pmc firm as the intelligence/operations officer. I guess my @WeeklyTA twitter got hacked into being a porn site now (sigh). Don’t fret, I’ll be making all new accounts in the future. In the meantime, if you want to contact me personally, my weeklyta@gmail is still active and I’ll be happy to reply directly. Tell me guys, should I start blogging again? I’m pretty positive I helped a lot of folks make a lot of cash, and it makes me feel really good inside. Just reading through my Investimonials reviews brings a joyful smile to my face. I made a difference for you.
With the market the way it is, the days of getting 200-300+% annual returns years ago has been long over. It was fun during the Great Recession and getting all of you guys to bang out +10%, +20%, +30% returns per trade on a regular basis. The truth is, it’s just more time effective for me to ride the “go-long fuck it” ride but still devote time for 1-2 intra-day trades for the quick “pops”. It’s very strange for me to think about a longer time frame, but experienced traders can accept and adapt accordingly when the markets change (this low-vol/low-ranged ebb-and-flow trading started when the Great Recession ended, about the time when I started helping foreign govt’s catch major narco-traffickers). But, that’s another story to tell when my eight different confidentiality agreements expire.
Instead of giving out more educational material when I clearly and honestly have not had the time to follow the markets truly in-depth, pick-by-pick, I’m re-posting my old educational materials for the new readers to digest. For the old timers, feel free to post in the comments and I’ll get back to you like I always do. Tell me how you’ve done during my absence. Tell me if I’ve helped you in some way. I’d love to hear it all. If you’re an actual student or friend, please e-mail me. I’ve gone through three cell phone numbers, so let me update you with that information as well.
A Happy & Safe Holiday Season to all our loyal readers and subscribers. All of us at iBankCoin thank you for keeping the lights on at our global headquarters! Please enjoy these classics:
