(Editor’s Note: Davis Ramsey is well-known to Slopers. After reporting a blow-out month in profits on the NADEX, he shared a couple of interesting insights in the comments section about his journey. I encouraged him to expand those comments into a post, which he has kindly done below. – Tim)
I should start by saying that what you’re about to read was only possible because of the community here on Slope. I was directed here in the wake of the 2010 Flash Crash by a post on Yahoo Finance message boards. I didn’t say much for a long time – nothing to say really. But I learned a lot and people here helped me become the trader I am today. I very much believe in the value of community and sharing ideas freely – that’s why I’m committed to as much transparency as possible in what I do on NADEX.
I linked Barry Ritholtz’s gold bug swipe along with other items in an Around the Web post. Anything linked (or republished from guests for that matter) on this site is to be taken as 100% their view, not mine. You, the reader are tasked with using your own brain to consider, discount or ignore any of it as you see fit.
What do I think of Ritholtz’s view on gold, personally? I think ole’ Barry is picking some easy, low hanging fruit to use up virtual ink over at Bloomberg, per his contract (real or implied). I mean really, gold did not react to Greece and he takes that as a negative for the metal?
