First and foremost I want to thank Tim for allowing me to write a post about my book Targeted Capital: The Art Of Low Risk High Reward Trading. Second, I want to thank the Slope community as a whole; so far the reception of the book has been nothing short of overwhelming. Thank you so incredibly much.
I wanted to quickly spell out what Targeted Capital contains for those who might be interested in picking up a copy of the book. I truly think Targeted Capital contains relevant information for all traders no matter what their style, market, or preferred timeframe of trading is. However, the last thing I would want is for someone to purchase a copy and find that it is totally irrelevant to their style of trading. Here is what the book contains.

It’s sort of what my own Panic Prosperity and Progress would be like if I could manage to draw well!
Well, the goofy Bay Area I live in has become even goofier. Cultural saturation in this everyone-deserves-to-be-a-billionaire loony bin has found its way even to children’s books. In this guide to the alphabet, the letter “I”, for example, is used for the all-important words “investing” and “Internet” (and, in a nod to reptile-loving neckbeards, “Iguana”). Sigh.
My recording sessions with Audible, Inc. continue, and this afternoon I’ll be donning the headphones to continue reading my Panic, Prosperity, and Progress #1 national best-seller (ahem). I’ll do a post about these suddenly-interesting markets this evening.
