King David to Maximus

Hello All – I know I’ve hardly had a presence here but wanted to inform those few who wondered what has happened to me. Over the course of the past 11 months, my youngest son has been in the hospital 205 days. He sadly passed on September 12 after a battle with several medical issues.

The lead sponsor for the Columbus Marathon this year is Nationwide Children’s Hospital and they selected him before he passed as a Patient Champion. At each mile, they will station a former patient and tell his/her story. Bryer, my son, was selected for mile 21. I will be running the marathon in his honor and ask for your gracious donation in his name to help support the NICU at Nationwide Children’s Hospital where he spent the majority of his life.

You can donate here http://nationwidechildrens.kintera.org/bryerssong

We also are selling shirts that commemorate his signature hair at www.bryerssong.com and all proceeds benefit the NICU as well.

Lastly, you can continue to follow his legacy on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/bryerssong

Thank you all so much.

Rappin’ For Jesus

It is quite obvious my loyal subjects miss/need me. I rarely come here anymore as I deal with Neonatologist after Neonatologist tell me my son is a mystery. The whole doctor rotation thing is one of the most ridiculous concepts in modern medicine by the way. So I’ll just leave you with some Jesus:

 

UPDATE

Good Evening,

Update, as requested:

I am eternally moved by the outpouring of grace and concern that has billowed in these holy parts of the world wide web that is iBankCoin. My youngest is doing much better, as they have taken him off oxygen today. His ascites is under control with Lasix but we still have no answers. Several tests are outstanding, including specific genetic testing relating to Lysosomal Storage Diseases (If anyone has any experiences with these I would greatly appreciate some insight). Testing for the LSD’s is essentially the last thing they are looking for as every other test has come back negative. They are very rare and dangerous diseases making the wait that much more unbearable. I ask for your continued prayers, chants, hymns, etc.

This PICC line in the side of his head was finally taken out as well this week:

Asking For Your Prayers Or Whatever You Do…

I humbly ask for your prayers, good thoughts, sacrifices or whatever you do for my littlest one. This is extremely out of my nature to ask and share such personal situations publicly but this guy needs anything he can get. He coded yesterday and the doctors have ran every test under the sun to no avail. He has an abnormal amount of fluid in his belly and his liver is slightly enlarged. This will most likely be my final post, as I need to get with Le Fly and discuss the possibility of a special election for a new tabbed blogger. Thank you all for the kind words and messages I have received. To make this finance related, the people’s portfolio is updated here and, obviously, there will be a delay in getting around to @reformedbroker’s book review.

Graciously Yours,

MAXIMUS

 

GOLD LOOKS LIKE POOP – FOR THE MOMENT

My legionaries went long $GC_F this morning at 1670.70 and what a terrible miscalculation that was. Trading systems can slit your throat around news releases obviously. This happend today with my stop hit within a hour or so at 1650. The charts below show $DGP, which is a gold double long ETN I like to look at. It may bounce here but probably too risky for my taste.

You can also see below the 240min chart of $GC_F that shows the last few trades taken:

I did close out one QQQ spread today at 3.75. Your portfolio is updated here and you can always follow me on twitter @MAXIMUS_iBC for roman greatness.

UPDATE: I am now back long at 1646.40
