I am thankful for being born into this ravenous society, obstacles placed in front of my path. Difficulty levels are orders of magnitude greater now– than ever before.
As a trader and student of the market, I am thankful for all other investors who came before me, imparting their experiences, through the written word, for the benefit of future generations. Right now, I am thankful for Henry Clews’, 28 Years in Wall Street.
It’s fairly obvious to me that making the decision to become a stocked broker was probably the worst decision I ever made. Nevertheless, it has afforded me an existence and this god forsaken stock market, for better of for worse, has provided me with a venue to discuss my thoughts online–building a foundation for what will one day be revered as the single best finance site that was ever created: iBankCoin. I’m a five tool player, son. Get out of my way.
I am thankful for the Tontine Coffee House, NYC, where this NYSE thing all started. The Buttonwood Agreement and that damned tree too: I am thankful. A shout out to the players at the Gallagher’s Evening Exchange. I am thankful for you.
To J.M. Walker: you sold too soon. I am thankful for your mistakes.
Even the losers, I am thankful for you, especially old man Daniel Drew, James C. Flood and Wm. C. Ralston. I’ve learned from your mistakes, more than you probably thought was possible.
At any rate, The Turkey Gods are here. Don’t fight the wave of gravy that is about to crash on you. Embrace it and become the gravy. I’ll see you fuckers on Friday.Comments »
