Reflecting on 2017: Part Two of Three

By -

Preface to all three parts: 2017 has been an exciting year for Slope, and I went looking among the literally thousands of posts this year to find what I considered the most intriguing. I earmarked twenty-one of them, and since that is too much for a single post, I’ve broken them into three equal parts. Here, then, are seven of my favorite posts from the year and a few words about each one. Thank you, Slopers, for making this place thrive for so many years.

  • Not Even Worth a Binder – In which I decide there’s absolutely nothing about Martin Armstrong worth considering.
  • Two Blondes, Two Fates – Marissa Mayer and Elizabeth Holmes. What are their similarities and differences, and why did one succeed while the other flopped?
  • SlopeCharts is Live! – I excitedly announce the launch of my latest creation, which has been gobbling up my time ever since.
  • Streetwise – this is probably my best-written post of the entire year. It’s about Zachary, who lives on the streets of Palo Alto. It also prompted a generous response from Slopers who sent him a surprising amount of cash to help.
  • What Rich Used To Be – the massive changes that have taken place over the past few decades that have altered the meaning of rich, poor, and middle class.
  • Blessings In Disguise – A look back at my life’s misfortunes and how they transformed themselves into positives, once some time had passed.
  • Ego Salieri – A long post about my career and some bitter disappointments along the way.

Probably A Dip To Buy

I was seeing a possibility of a retracement  last night and was talking about that this morning in my premarket vid. The 60min sell signals on ES and NQ have made target but there is a strong case on NQ for a hit of a wedge support trendline currently in the 6460 area and that has not yet been hit. On TF this is likely to be a pullback to establish a rising support trendline before the high probability retest of the all time high, though obviously this is a big news bomb week.
