Never heard of me? It’s all good, I’m a quiet equity partner here at iBankCoin. For those of you who do know me, it’s such a pleasure to write this post for you. For those who don’t know me, I blogged on iBC for over 2 years as a top technical analyst then I went on to blog at Chart.ly, briefly, then onto Stocktwits as ChartsGoneWild with StocktwitsTV. I have written almost 2,000 posts (combined on all sites) in 4 years, recorded over 100 StocktwitsTV shows, ran my coaching program and chat rooms, written a chapter in the published Stocktwits Edge (Wiley Finance, 2011), and somehow still remain in the Top 50 on Investimonials after 2 years of inactivity. So great, now you know that I’m not some random shitbag off the block! This is my first post on iBC in 4 1/2 years.
What have I been up to for 4 1/2 years? I went back to get even more formal education and I’ve dangerously worked with a friend’s pmc firm as the intelligence/operations officer. I guess my @WeeklyTA twitter got hacked into being a porn site now (sigh). Don’t fret, I’ll be making all new accounts in the future. In the meantime, if you want to contact me personally, my [email protected] is still active and I’ll be happy to reply directly. Tell me guys, should I start blogging again? I’m pretty positive I helped a lot of folks make a lot of cash, and it makes me feel really good inside. Just reading through my Investimonials reviews brings a joyful smile to my face. I made a difference for you.
With the market the way it is, the days of getting 200-300+% annual returns years ago has been long over. It was fun during the Great Recession and getting all of you guys to bang out +10%, +20%, +30% returns per trade on a regular basis. The truth is, it’s just more time effective for me to ride the “go-long fuck it” ride but still devote time for 1-2 intra-day trades for the quick “pops”. It’s very strange for me to think about a longer time frame, but experienced traders can accept and adapt accordingly when the markets change (this low-vol/low-ranged ebb-and-flow trading started when the Great Recession ended, about the time when I started helping foreign govt’s catch major narco-traffickers). But, that’s another story to tell when my eight different confidentiality agreements expire.
Instead of giving out more educational material when I clearly and honestly have not had the time to follow the markets truly in-depth, pick-by-pick, I’m re-posting my old educational materials for the new readers to digest. For the old timers, feel free to post in the comments and I’ll get back to you like I always do. Tell me how you’ve done during my absence. Tell me if I’ve helped you in some way. I’d love to hear it all. If you’re an actual student or friend, please e-mail me. I’ve gone through three cell phone numbers, so let me update you with that information as well.
A Happy & Safe Holiday Season to all our loyal readers and subscribers. All of us at iBankCoin thank you for keeping the lights on at our global headquarters! Please enjoy these classics:

Yes, you definitely need to start blogging again! I def miss the days of your posts with live entries/exits, banking coin and posting donkey-scholonged gains on the stocked exchanges (AIG, etc!). I was trying to look you up but it seemed like you disappeared off the face of the internet. Glad you are doing well, hope you get starting blogging again.
Steve, is that you??
Good to see u at it again CA. Hope to see more of you soon.
Yep, how’s your gym doing?
Gym business is hitting 52 week highs. Already opened #2.
dude, you were a beast when you were full time, I remember when your comment section used to crash iBC lol
Yea I think I remember. It was on one of those crazy days. Anyway, reading your blog. Nice job.
You know it.
Honor student with the ladies. Lol
I know he is doing well. Great to read your words my friend.
Merry X-mas, Chuck
ROFL “i’m an equity partner”
GTFO. We have OA now. Don’t need your shit
sounds like a fucking little brat
Your name is fitting. Yes, John is an equity partner. Why be a dick?
sippin’ on those hater tears. yum!
OA !!! check his trades last year buy and sell price .. no money made.. onlyones made money was option commisions desk
beware of following his trades
We need you back John!1
“OA” joined as blogger after I stopped active involvement, so I don’t know him personally. However, anyone can consult with Covestor, CXO, or others for verifications. People are lazy as shit. I have thousands of materials/involved in 8 different sites at some point. No one wants to do the hard work to sift through the thousands of bits of information I put out. So,
“douch” IP: 126.96.36.199
Get an education, BREH. I’ll teach you how to spell it. It’s douche, not douch, idiot. Enjoy and Merry X-Mas!!!!!!
188.8.131.52 is a router…
@ J Adabese (your pen pal) COMPLETELY AGREE
Sorry, but, J Adabese has been permanently banned from all aspects of this site. There’s a difference between asshattery and constructive criticism. If anyone else wants to follow in his footsteps, feel free :DDD
Half of you commenters can go fuck yourselves. The other ones opinions actually matter.
Shut up, and let the man blog, he’s done way more than you morons.
I just saw the IP addresses and they’re like all the same 1-2 ppl with changed display names every time. lol troll much?
Woah – ghosts from Christmas past. You should definitely start blogging again good sir!
i’d like to buy equity in iBC.
Wow, what a pretentious twat you are. We all remember your tall tales and exaggerated nonsensical returns.
Five paragraphs of masturbation. Great job /sarc.
Please, please don’t bother wasting your time on future blogs.
CA – just gave a quick look to the treasure trove contained in the link you posted. Much appreciated. Would love to learn more about you & your style… Please continue!
All of my information is free. enjoy.
1-2 intra-day trades for the quick “pops”..or “drop”(hmmm ?) I think it was much more than that as I recall.
Good to know you are still alive and well. It seems that you just went ((POOF)).
Welcome back to iBC. I’m not a day trader but always found your posts/Stock Twits vids interesting.
John – miss you man. Hope all is well.
Merry Xmas CA!
It would be great to see you blogging again.
I am absolutely positive this guy beats off in the mirror while he blogs.
Just kidding. Please never come back !!!!
Love the educational stuff man. Merry Xmas
Need whaaambulances over here. STAT!
If you guys don’t know, iBC has a YouTube videos channel filled with HILARIOUS videos. Please peruse:
Real quick, let’s refresh some history, yes?
Historically, I’ve brought in a lot of controversy and “hating”. It is funny reading some of these posts though, no shits given, of course. But regardless, I don’t conduct my trading as a “scam”. I practiced what I preached, until I went into private military contracting. However, feel free to review in order:
1) So, this guy was a blogger who was pushed out of GF, then I voluntarily left GF to get with iBC (thank God) http://marketsci.wordpress.com/2009/08/18/goodbye-green-faucet-and-seeking-alpha-hello-bullshit-free-blogging/
2) What’s next? http://marketsci.wordpress.com/2009/08/20/well-done-mr-lee/
Go ahead, read the comments section.
This was 5 years ago. I don’t care about it, in fact I wish Michael is doing well, no harm, no foul. However, some of these new trolls, who I’ll be perma-banning from the entire site, need to recognize the facts. Deal with it. As a partner, zero shit-fucks given. You’re out. Peace brehs, go to Motley Fool.
… didn’t particularly care for you when you were here !
… didn’t miss you for ONE second when you left !
… see nothing NOW that makes me think I was wrong about you !
… DON’T let the door hit you in the ASS on the way back out the door !
BYE BYE !!!
Gee Alf, your opinion means a lot to me.
… and “your opinion” of “my opinion” means absolutely zero !
Merry Christmas !
it’s ok, alf44 has been a VERY long-time loyal reader of iBC.
I have nothing against you. Thank you for your continued interest in iBC.
Welcome back! You’ve been missed.
Miss you bro! Great to read your thoughts once again
Michael! I miss all of my students greatly, mostly my local ones like you. I’ve gone bat shit crazy in Panama!!! Love to re-connect. Please email.
Good to hear from you again. I don’t usually post. I learned something from you. Hope to hear more from you in the future.
I don’t understand all the hate as those who aren’t fans of yours can just not read your blogs. I’m sure it’s not easy to do, but please ignore them. Why? Because I’m sure there are many like me who are going through your previous posts and gaining so insight and knowledge into the market and trading. I especially like the chart game So please keep posting!!!!
Well, anyone who has been around for a while will get a bunch of haters. It’s normal. Fly and Woodshedder had to deal with Dennis Kneale from CNBC, obviously a major business news outlet. So, anon-internet trolls are nothing. It’s a part of business and publicly putting yourself out there. My blog has been one of the most controversial on many levels. Regardless, those who know me will get my time and all others can go fuck themselves with a shovel handle.
What a pleasant surprise. Nice to hear you’re doing well.
Separately, I trust you aren’t blindly serving the agenda of douche-bag neocons in your day job.
Was wondering what happened to you. Was one of your subs on stocktwits. Prior to that used to read all your articles on IBC. I was always blown away by how easy you made trading look and how well you managed your risk. Never forget some of those amazing AIG trades where you made more in a day than most people do in a year! Yes, start blogging again!
