Pretty f#$@% amazing!
Right, Matt. Perhaps most importantly..."Apple restricted
AirDrop in China to assist the regime in stopping information
flowing inside China." Don't own Apple anything. Never have. Never
"Apple hobbled a crucial tool of dissent in China weeks before widespread protests broke out," reports Quartz. "Anti-government protests flared in several Chinese cities and on college campuses over the weekend. But the country’s most widespread show of public dissent in decades will have to manage without a crucial communication tool, because Apple restricted its use in China earlier this month" to help quell protests.
Not sure where that came from, but couldn't agree more on those
points, Matt. Ever notice the WW II era folks, the depression era
folks, those who remain, that is, always seem to have their heads
together? Going through hard times in life can be the best thing
I remember way back when Cramer said charts don't work and
refused to use them.
"They have a lot of access to other instruments that other
brokers don't..." Very true, an astounding difference of
instruments in some cases. What's puzzling is their entire lack of
personal service/knowledge. I'm more knowledgeable that some of the
people on their phone line! And I am no genius. And one department
is clueless about the other.
Personally, I don't think TOS is just for trading options. I've
traded futs there, too, and love a lot of their tech indicators.
And since it's so popular they have a lot of traders creating
original indicators for it as well. I've always hated the IB
interface but for some reason, IB has a great corporate bond search
and trading, (though terrible at getting people to talk to who know
anything) and so does E-Trade. With rates higher, I like those
re Black Friday Special mention...Hey, c'mon guys! $-wise, BPT
is already the greatest T.A. website bargain I have ever seen.
I hadn't noticed that. With Elon opening it up I do get more
Tweets from people I don't know (from someone else who's following
someone I know) but you can always block them. PS A lot of great
T.A. traders on there, too. Ideas you don't see everywhere else.
And it's a good marketing tool, Matt and Steve!
Personally, I love Twitter, if only to communicate with people
you cannot usually reach. I've had small conversations with Ed
Snowden, Mike Santoli of CNBC, Tom Brady (who also used one of my
marketing ideas), the Gov of Colorado about her policies, and
recently Elon himself, about the obvious subject.

The phrase “be careful what you wish for” means that situations
don’t always turn out like we hope. Pivots happen when the Fed has
successfully engineered a recession. [see the grey bars in the
The G5 Credit Impulse is the 2nd derivative [the rate of the

The sequel to the Social Network - where the Winklevii lose all
their money in bitcoin, and the whole metaverse thing doesn't pan
out for Zuck, so they're all classmates at Harvard Business School,

to be so good.

You stole my line Fred; when I apply for a writing job and they
ask for my preferred pronouns I actually respond with I
prefer "it." As in "It will have the copy by Wednesday."
Funny, I never hear back.
Yes, Walt. From an old issue of Barron's. Remember them? Now a
What I think when people want to talk "Macro."
Fredsaid: agree with you. Much of it is already priced in
predicting the vote outcome. 1. But as you know, high prices can
always get higher. 2. (As much as I do not trade on fundamentals)
there is a lot of room in the drilling, regulation, and pipeline
front for changes and upside potential when the rules get changed.
Just a thought to keep in mind. We will of course see it in the
I hate politics and will not discuss it but with the GOP's 90%
chance to take Congress and the independents now leaning that way
(Senate?) we should remember to keep a close eye on the energy
patch, drillers, oil services et al which will benefit.
