Where have I been?
My loyal readers have been wondering I am sure. Unlike many blogs, mine is just a a blog, not a for profit commercial enterprise.
Truth is I am somewhat of a superstitious trader. I didn't blog for 2 days in mid March. It turns out that those 2 days were my best trading days in the past 12 months, with some truly stellar gains. Being the superstitious sort, I resolved not to blog until I had a down day. Fortunately for me, but unfortunately for the rest of cyberspace, I did not have a down day until yesterday. My March finished at +10.3 %, well in excess of any expectations I had, and my April is looking pretty nice too (although today was not as kind to me as it was many traders: +.1%). I'm sorry if you were missing my "wise" words. Out of guilt today, I figured I would go on and make this post for my readers in an attempt to explain my absence. Since anyone reading this is profit motivated, I am sure you will understand. If you told me I'd have the kind of month I had there are a lot of crazier things that I would have done than stop blogging.
