I do not take my presence on Twitter very seriously. Coincidentally, my stream is a source of entertainment. That is not to say every bit of financial commentary presented in the twitter hemisphere is without value, but rather that it takes diligent processing to concentrate down to a pure information extract.
However, I do not filter all the participants, all the time, nor do I filter my tick stream to remove 1-lot “noise”. I want to see as much information as possible, when I want to. Sometimes in all that commotion a theme emerges.
Today’s theme was the most confidently bearish I have ever seen. My stream was super confident on the bear side. People who never tweet their positions were touting their TZA and puts on this or that. More than ever, and I do a lot of twitter, it’s my drug.
AND I SAY GOOD. Flip it over logic has taken me through the month of January and I made money, dammit. It’s been a grind, so what? You want to know a real grind? Spend a summer month on a cement crew, 7-days a week.
Do you know what this weekend is? I have watched two quarters of football this year and even I know it’s the Super Bowl. So screw it, my book went into the weekend long, much longer than where I started the week. I couldn’t care less to gain CLOUT by TOUT-ing some hot new long. They don’t last long enough, so why report on it.
If you want to talk about trading, about how to trade or about performance mentality, we shall. If you want to fly onto my dock and wait for me to catch and throw you a fish, then you’re better off heading to Florida.
THE FISH ARE SCARCE AND I INTEND TO EAT AND FEED MY PEOPLE.
PS – big #FF to my homies on Twitter, you make the week awesome.
