And then the second day after the post the Dow Jones rallies over 200 points. Yet these posts don’t get clicked enough to get me into the iBC “Trending” section.
Just look back over my Market Breadth archive. You’ll find I don’t post bullshit.

Duly noted, Wood. I think the latest re-design made it harder to find the latest articles from your favorite writers on the home page.
You and your system are the shit. Although I may not post often, I pay attention to your directional calls.
Thank you. Just knowing you are paying attention inspires me to make the calls. No bullshit.
I don’t like the idea of a level playing field on this site, or that only 1-3 posts show on the homepage without scrolling down or zooming out. There should be 2 blog feeds side by side. On the left a column for tabbed bloggers. On the right a column that everything from the community, news posts, etc, everything feeds into (and still preserves the iBC game). And having to page down 3x to see the Trending box means I rarely know what the hell is trending.
Unfortunately, the redesign sucks balls but Fly would never admit it.
Thanks guys. I appreciate it. I can’t say too much because I’ll be seeing Fly in a week or so and he is likely to bitch slap me in front of Cajun and Chess.
always watching you shed. keep on keepin on.
I know MOOB. Keep those callouses rough and the strings clean!
Welcome to the world of quant analysis. People like opinions from strongly opinionated people.
Well put D.
you fuckers are all banned
Keep it up wood. I read them as well.
Big fan of your work Wood. I find the layout of new site is more difficult to keep track of posts, due to high post rotation and mix of news posts within blog posts. Quantity bias vs quality on site at the moment, just needs some fine tuning.
Keep up the great work.
Damien may be on to something – maybe readers want posts that say “Buy XXX”, without having to read the how or why.
I know you put in a ton of work doing these analyses; I for one really appreciate all the effort. It’s sure helped my thinking.
Hey, Wood! Your work continues to be great. There may be a technical aspect to not getting clicks: I get your posts via RSS; I read each one, but it may not count as a click. If you can, change your RSS to send a synopsis or only the first few lines, followed by a link to the web page. Then everyone who reads will be counted.
Good advice, thanks!
Paying attention from out here in the middle of the Pacific.
My experience is most people cannot distinguish between information that sounds good and information that actually helps a trader. Otherwise majority would have made money. Your experience with link clicks is similar to pattern I see on mine.
I sincerely believe your posts are of high value compared to many other blogs. That is one reason your blog made the cut to be on my site while most other blogs (inlcuding iBank) did not make the cut.
I am not including URLs neither for my site nor for my blog in this comment. I don’t want people think this comment has other interests.
I am trading for several years and generally don’t post comments much. I hate to see a good bloggers like wood loose interest.
Wish u all good trading!
