Just About Ready

Thanks to the generous help and support of some fellow Slopers, who spent many hours reviewing and copyediting my latest creation, I am optimistic that Silicon Valley Babble On will be available before this month is over. I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the cover and let you know it is on its way. I consider it my best work, and I eagerly look forwarding to letting you know when this book is released.


This Time For Sure (Part 1 of 4)

Preface to All Four Parts: I am presently short 74 different positions. I actually intended to be short 80 positions, but the market closed on Friday faster than I could finish the orders. I am showing all 74 charts across four posts this weekend, but unlike the past, this isn’t a “half for everyone, half for PLUS only” deal. From now on, PLUS members are going to get the vast majority of the charts. Non-paying readers will get a sampling of the charts, and PLUS members will get the majority.

These are all ‘live” positions, and recently they have been doing a yeoman’s job of outperforming the market. Click on any thumbnail for a big version, and you can scroll left and right through the gallery. I have tried to zoom in (when appropriate) on the portion of the chart I believe is most germane and illuminating to readers. So if you’re not a subscriber yet, please read the reasons for being one.
