I chose Algeria, a country where […]

All I Want To Do is Retire

I have always believed that if you don’t have a sense of humor, then you better get the hell out of this business. Below is a link to a YouTube video entitled “All I Want To Do is Retire” which covers the decline of the brokerage industry over the last 20 years. The video is […]

Covering Shorts in the Euro

This short position has been a total home run of a trade, with the Euro going into freefall when the ink was barely dry on the Trade Alert.

The diminutive Mexican canine enjoyed a boom in popularity in recent […]

My Take on Obamacare

So much BS is flying about over the Obamacare issue that I can’t resist the temptation to put in my two cents worth. There was no chance this was going to work on day one, and I warned senior administration officials as much on many different occasions. Even the Massachusetts health care plan only saw […]
