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…

1,337 views

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

 

A Christmas Gift & Poll Update

1,206 views

Good Morning Citizens,

As you are all well aware, some despots that meander the halls of iBC do not care for me nor my escalation into prominence. My life has been put in danger again, this time from barbarian raiders. As I sit here at the local children’s infirmary, I want my forces to know that you are fighting for a noble cause and your loyalty will be rewarded. On this Christmas Eve, I would like to present a “gift” for your allegiance and bravery. This link provides the code and logic behind a somewhat consistant $ES_F day trading program, although not the greatest profit factor of late, created by Ricky Cheung which he provided for free back in 2010. Below are the results from the last 5 years:

Lastly, here are the latest results on the verdict if Reformed Broker’s book sucks:

I’ll try to finish the book this week and have a review done either by the end of the week or after the new year. Enjoy your family and stay safe.

Peace Be With You All,

MAXIMUS

Note: Use the code at your own risk. I nor the lords of iBC do not take responsibility for its accuracy.

Finance/Investing books are a dime a dozen – what do the righteous citizens of iBC think of this man’s work? I’ll give my impressions next week if the results are favorable.

Marissa Mayer Has Showed Her Hand – Apple Will Buy Yahoo!

1,445 views

The gods have spoken, my scouts have returned and @marissamayer has given us a perfectly wrapped Christmas present.

She tweeted this Wednesday:

I realize there has been much talk for several months, if not years, about an Apple takeover but I’m convinced this seals it. Too many things are lining up – the confirmed release of Apple experimenting with TV components, the Flickr iOS app release alongside the instagram fiasco and now this seemingly harmless tweet of an Apple store.

There are just too many synergies here that Apple could use – whether it be from Yahoo’s foothold in the Asia marketplace, the insane amount of content Yahoo! has, Yahoo’s IntoNow app and the possibilities that could bring with a TV made by Apple, etc.

I have instructed my legions to buy several YHOO calls – it must be done.

 

GOLD LOOKS LIKE POOP – FOR THE MOMENT

783 views

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

 

The Last Word On Sandy Hook

1,281 views

I am blessed, I am lucky and I am thankful. I was able to tuck two of my children into bed last night, while my wife took duties at the hospital with the third. The parents of those twenty innocent children were not as fortunate. They felt the agony and despair of looking into an empty room; a painful reminder of what a madman is capable of. With this grief and the unbearable weight of burying your own child, these parents are now the victims of the insanely, overdramatic media and the insensitivity of politicians with their egos’ believing they can stop such tragedy.

The traitors that run the modern bureaucratic state consider themselves more like architects of a rational society and believe they can govern our reality comprehensively so everyone is included. This type of thinking leads to authoritative government and defies human nature. The framers of the constitution understood this line of reasoning and implemented divisions on government to provide checks to limit the institution for this reason. James Madison wrote specifically about the 2nd Amendment in Federalist Paper #46, in which he made it clear that the right of the citizenry to bear arms is a necessity against tyranny and is an integral part of the system of checks and balances. Granted, semi-automatic rifles were not invented then but to propose a ban on ALL guns is a direct attempt to exert a means of control over the population and limit the systems of checks and balances.

The mass shootings that have occurred over the last several years are extremely horrifying and tragic events. As humans, we need reasons and justifications for such treacherous acts of violence, whether it be to place blame on the availability of guns or the lack of quality parenting at home. We rarely look at ourselves as possibly the issue. How do we value human life? How do we treat are neighbors? Do we help the less fortunate? We can debate all we want whether this is a gun control or mental illness issue but the reality is, like I said here, we live in a very unsafe and cruel world. That is why I have my CCW, plain and simple and this is why we cannot let our own government take away the 2nd Amendment:

I do not know what can prevent such tragedies like Sandy Hook but usually the initial response is the wrong one.
