I haven’t figured out how to embed it, but please click here and watch my video from today. It’s very “fresh and raw” and I think has some very valuable lessons. If you are interested, you might want to also watch the video from yesterday (which is available on the same page) as a sharp contrast and to see what I was saying pre-Brexit. As for the picture below, it does nothing. I am putting it here just to jazz up the post.
Those who watch me on Tastytrade may recall the channels I’ve pointed out on the Euro. Well, the channel is now broken (for obvious reasons). My view is that this failure will result in the same thing that the prior failure did: a new, lower channel that will be in place for a long while.
Much to everyone’s surprise, including mine, the Brexit campaign won the UK referendum by a healthy margin and it seems the UK is starting down the road to leaving the European Union. There were big reactions overnight on the markets, and much gloom voiced and written about the danger and the instability of the Brexit, but personally I think it’s a good thing, and if you believe that it’s always better to stick with the devil you know, then I’d suggest perusing the writings of the US founding fathers for a series of opposing opinions. Change sometimes works out ok, and it’s worth remembering that the only situation for humans that is ever really stable, is death, which is a high price to pay for certainty. Any good outcome always involves taking a risk. 🙂
