  • The "HOPE TRADE" [View instapost]
    Very well said Mike. Thank you for your time and effort.

    Your being fairly new here is perhaps one reason why the surprise that so many people here go underwater, and then average down. They are the current "herd", they are dogged, and they will not be easily turned. I know. I have tried. Perhaps you, with your years of experience, will be more successful in changing some minds in what I think are bad practices, especially in this market. I sincerely hope so.

    "Losers average losers" - Paul Tudor Jones

    Best wishes,

    P.S. I do hope you can publish this latest comment as a stand alone Instablog as well.

    Markos and SevenSeas,

    Thank you for the civil discussion. It will be very interesting to see what the Greek people decide, and by how much.

  • The Gold Miners Have Probably Bottomed, Even If Gold Has Not! [View instapost]

    Thank you for your article. I admire your goal of calling both price and direction of gold and gold stocks. I can not do that myself effectively (as a day trader I really don't have to) although I do manually chart spot gold to get a 5 day sma.

    #1. What gold index do you watch while scalping (if any), in addition to 1 minute charts?
    #2. Do you still try to "achieve a steady 1% weekly return" as quoted from your profile page?

    Thank you again for sharing your insight and experience.

  • Will The Federal Gasoline Tax Increase In 2015? [View instapost]
    My son is a truck driver for $ARG. And I just did his income taxes for him. Believe me, a dollar increase, per gallon, would hurt like hell. And that's just so he could get to work in his personal truck. He already has to take into consideration where he goes hunting/fishing (I know you are an outdoorsman, Chris) depending on how much gas it takes to get there. And I mean just within Vermont.

    So I totally agree with those above who say that kind of increase (And I agree it should be $1, but for infrastructure only) must be offset by a decrease in the other (income) taxes he has to pay.

    And while we're at it, lets do a flat income tax. Reduce the tax code to something sane, that my son could fill out himself. Not that I mind doing it for him.

    Lets face it. Neither one is going to happen. Sooner or later, We The People are going to have to take back our country from the politicians.

    Sooner would be better.

    Jeez Poka,

    Take it easy on the guy (MeadowA). That was his maiden comment. (grin)

    But I'm not going to disagree with what you say regarding energy.

    BTW, thanks for coming back. You are always informative, interesting, and yes, entertaining.

    Cheers and Pura Vida !
