HIGH JINX ALERT: Nothing Can Go Wrong, I’m All In Again

I’ll tell you what I bought later on this week. Out of respect for Exodus members, I won’t tell you my trading ideas in real time anymore. It’s not like any of you shills deserve it anyway.

To the point, everyone is expecting the Fed to hike and talk extreme shit about future hikes. Oil is trending up again and Trump defeated Rachael Maddow and has caused the left to devour one of their own. Ergo, and quite literally, nothing can go wrong.

That’s right, I fucking said it.

Rant forthcoming.

There is nothing but upside from here. All persons long equities stand to make enormous fortunes. The economy no longer concerns me. Trump is now our leader and all is well. Trumpcare sucks, but so does Obamacare. No change on that end. If oil catches a bid and you are short, you’ll end up speeding yourself at highway speeds into a brick wall, CIA style.

I can go on. There’s a litany of reasons why I rationalize my trades with news items and events in order to justify my actions. At the end of the day, it’s me against the machines — fighting the good fight to make financial blogging great again.

Many of you probably don’t know it, but finance blogging used to be fun, exciting and many were doing it. Back in the day, OA and me were two of many prolific traders out there who talked about markets and trades every day. Now there’s only a handful left, because most of them blew themselves to smithereens.

The new traders don’t even know what a blog is and instead opt for ADD styled twitter comments for their followers. In a way, finance blogging has become old hat, sort of like newspapers and black and white televisions. In order to keep finance sites relevant, you have to discuss different topics, which is why I’ve expanded the site to different genres.

It’s called evolving with the times.

But some things remain constant, as I speed chop carrots with my testicles grotesquely displayed atop the counter, furiously mincing and dicing, 100% long 1 stock into the Fed.

    Thanks for the laugh.
    “I won’t tell you my trading ideas in real time anymore.”

    My trading idea in real time is not to trade. Cuz it’s rigged. My odds are better in Vegas.

    I still remember when people would faithfully compete to post FIG in the comments and lived in fear of the banhammer and space cannons. These days I see degenerates (mainly libshits) in the comments ranting and raving, barely coherent and frothing at the mouth with their self-important zeal.

    Having said that I do enjoy the new content immensely, your writing style lends itself particularly well to eviscerating idiots of which there are plenty in the sphere of politics.

      How do type and clean shit off your nose at the same time? And by the way, Ironbird is not a libshit.

        The lack of self awareness is hilarious.

        It’s nice to see how easily you get triggered.

    the Fly is in the energy space……he has either gone all in on the XLE or possibly he has ventured into the service sector….where he has chosen SLB…which gapped open and never looked back………

    I want to see the look in Madame Le Flys eye when she hears he went all in with the kids and house parked as collateral with his clearing broker…. LOL
