I’m undertaking a new project — publishing my selective works of the blog — dating back to 2007. It is a living testament of the stock market during this time period, and there’s nothing out there quite like it, impossible to replicate. I am, without equivocation, the most prolific financial blogger to have ever lived in the history of the world. One hundred years hence, traders will look back upon these halls with great distinction and read my missives and feel, actually feel, as if he/she/it was there with me — bowling on fuckers in the comments section with my magnanimous wins.
I believe it is my duty, as a citizen of the world, to publish these works, lest they might be lost to the ether when I am good and gone and everything turns into dust. I must transfer our world thru our distorted eyes into print. I say “our”, because much of what I wrote about was influenced by you — the unwashed reader. I will, of course, add some color to them and to be honest, I CRINGE at some of my earlier blogs — seeing how god damned juvenile and obnoxious I was. But that’s part of life, I suppose — the fires and the hearth — we burn inside of it and come out the other end crispier.
I will break it into three parts.
The Financial Crisis Years: 2007-2010
The Aftermath and Subsequent Rallies: 2010-2013
Leading into Trumpism and Latter Obama Fuckeries: 2013-2016
I won’t name them that, of course. I’ll come up with something creative. They will be a living journal of a trader/space alien magician during a most interesting time period for investors. Books are interesting and offer backstories to what transpired; but nothing quite communicates it like real time reporting and trading — the tomfoolery of this site pre Twitter — a time and era when blogging meant something and when men took to the streets and demanded justice for all of the crimes that Goldman Ballsachs committed — when the SEC sought out revenge against banksters and tossed them into prison cells.
Yeah, none of that shit happened — but I have interesting stories. The first part might be ready within a month or two, depending on my schedule. It will be my 3rd published item, the first two novellas based upon my time getting started in the business.
Futures are now soft. We might want to raise a little cash today.
