In the course of 2013, there have been a number of cool improvements to the blog, but my favorite one of all is the SocialTrade system. (In case you’re not acquainted with it, here are some videos about what it is and how it’s used). (more…)
Over the weekend, I received a wonderful note from a Sloper. This gentleman is a very systematic thinker, since he sent an email in a format no one else ever has: a well-constructued outline of thoughts. I thought you’d get a kick out of seeing it, and I asked (and received) his permission to anonymously post it here. If you can’t quite read it, click on the image below to see it in all its well-organized glory. (more…)
What a weekend on Slope. In my four years of participating on Slope, I can not remember the last time nerves were this raw. Personally, I think its a sign of capitulation, and more importantly, a mark of a market reversal. But that is not here nor there. I want to write about what its like to trade as a Pirate. (more…)
Over the course of nearly nine years of blogging, I have received thousands of emails from all over the world. I got one in the wee hours of Monday morning that was especially nice and, having the writer’s permission, I would like to share it in full (with a few bits redacted for the sake of privacy): (more…)
Note From Tim Knight: The post below is an unusual one for Slope, as you will soon see. I would not normally publish a post such as this, but I am doing so principally out of gratitude to BDI who has provided dozens of outstanding submissions in the past (to say nothing of his constant presence in the comment stream). However, because the post does allude to a business opportunity, I want it made absolutely crystal clear that the presence of this post is in no way an endorsement. I have absolutely nothing to do with the business at all, nor do I vouch for it or potentially benefit from it in any way. I am simply letting BDI had some Sunday air time to talk about something he’s doing and what I think are the fairly interesting facts behind it. Caveat Sloper!
I got a nice little honor that Slope was given a top spot in the Best Blogs for Futures list. I, umm, never thought there was much futures talk here, or education for that matter, but I’m an attention whore, so I’ll tip my hat and say thank-you.
(As I mentioned in my Anatomy of a Hate Mail post a few days ago, the vast majority of emails I get from Slopers are really nice. Below is a fine example, which I got last night. I received the author’s permission to publish it, with the provision that I remove the person’s name. It is an eye-opening first person account of what’s going on out there…….Tim) (more…)
