A Final Warning

By -

I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll say it one final time: after the close on Friday, we’re going to throw the switch. The old site goes dark and the new site comes up. There are endless scenarios:

+ Best Case: everything runs perfectly, and the only change you see is a beautiful new site.

+ Worst Case: Slope is totally down, and you get a 404 error all weekend.

+ Probable Case: the site will be up, but there will be some snags, problems, and bugs we need to frantically fix (because, cough cough, so few people helped me test, although I begged endlessly…….)

Anyway, I just wanted to tell as many of you as possible. Good luck to us all!

BABY BOOMERS & THE INFORMATION AGE

Triangles Within Triangles

Apologies for the slow rate of updates this week. Stan and I are distracted while running our first Trader’s Boot Camp, lasting about four weeks and lasting until the end of next week. We are teaching basic TA and trading methods for both swing and day trades. This is mainly aimed at existing subscribers, on the basis that a profitable subscriber is a happy subscriber, but we are starting to promote this to non-subscribers for the next one starting on 22nd May, so if you might be interested, have a look here. We are charging $499 per seat for non-subscribers, which seemed a fair price to us, but for some reason is by far the cheapest we have seen anywhere on the web.

I should also mention that our monthly free public Chart Chat is on Sunday and you can sign up for that on our May Free Webinars page. We’ll be covering the usual range of thirty to forty instruments across equity, bond, currency, precious metal and commodity markets. (more…)

Flufferbot!

I was looking forward to the Tesla earnings after the close yesterday. Legions of bulls and bears were on either side, preparing for battle – – and some kind of shock. So……..the earnings came out………and………nothing.

Seriously. It was incredible. Although the stock bounced around some at first, after a little while, it was just a few pennies from where it was at its multi-hundred dollar close. It was about as exciting an after-hours session as a public utility company’s earnings report.

And then……………the conference call. Which, you’ve probably already heard, was insane. Maybe Musk is losing his mind, or just has stopped caring about the common people which haven’t been worshipped into deities like him, but he was going wiggy about completely sensible questions. (more…)
