Actually Lizzie, it might have something to do with the government printing U.S. Dollars out of existence. But yet again, this might be a pretty sophisticated concept for you to understand.
Wondering why your Thanksgiving groceries cost more this year? It’s because greedy corporations are charging Americans extra just to keep their stock prices high. This is outrageous. businessinsider.com/big-comp…

Is charting an art or a science? I've heard this dialogue for years. It's neither; charting is a craft. We are craftsmen and women. Think of old-world artisans. Carefulness. Exactness. Obsession with detail. #fromthearchives

As a 46 year trading veteran I cannot understand why some people take certain markets so damn personal Markets do not know you and I even exist and could care less if we were even alive We traders need to dramatically up our intake of chill pills

My trading guidelines state that I should never take a losing trade home on Friday. As a swing trader, there are two parts to a trade -- direction and timing. If I have a loss on Friday, at least one of the two was wrong. #fromthearchives

Guess what market(s) they was referring to??????
In 46 years of trading I have been absolutely astonished by a simple fact regardless of the asset/asset class Fundamentals (the real fundamentals) permanently change before 95% of market participants know it In fact, by the time the choir learns the song, the song has changed

There are two distinct drawdowns that take place in trading: Asset draw-downs that erode account value Emotional drawdowns Traders need to protect against both. In fact, emotional drawdowns can take a bigger toll

Good patterns are self-evident. The more you have to study a chart, the less likely it is tradeable -THINK HORIZONTAL. Avoid diagonal patterns. TRADE IN THE SAME TIME FRAME OF YOUR ANALYSIS. #fromthearchives

I have no desire to pick the tops and bottoms of big swings, and I am more than happy to catch a chunk in the middle. Bulls make money, bears make money, but pigs get slaughtered.

The root of all crime and greed is sin. We are all sinners. Rom 3. This includes me.
