St.Paddy’s Week 2016

St.Paddy’s Week 2016

Oh man!  Obviously, I haven’t been terribly motivated to trade lately.  I have been dealing with the after affects of that losing streak hangover.  I was sure that a little break was in order.  I just need to get my head back in line.  So, I have reset my thinking a little.  I am going back to what worked before.  Focus on a smaller mover and work that.  I did trade today but I will summarize that this weekend.  I want to let you know what the hell I’ve been up to! In Toronto we have a brewery down by the SkyDome (If you want to call it the Rogers Centre then go fuck yourself!!!) and they make only one type of beer.  Fortunately, it’s a beer that I like.  They also throw amazing St.Paddy’s day and Oktoberfest parties.  You get to drink out...

Why I Have Been M.I.A.

Why I Have Been M.I.A.

Hello all!  It has been a loooong time between trades for me.  I can honestly say that in well over two weeks I have probably looked at the markets for one hour.  Most of this is because I was in Punta Cana, DR for a week.  The few days prior to that, I was already in vacation mode and trying to get things done around the house.  The reason for the Dominican trip was because a buddy decided to get married down there.  I was lucky enough to be a groomsman for him.  Here is a shot of my New York partners in crime on scene in the Dominican. We took full advantage of the “all-inclusive” policy and drank our faces off every day.  I’m not talking about normal, Toronto drinking.  I’m talking about 35 degrees, in the pool, shit-can-hammered by...

St.Patricks Day – Steam Whistle Brewery

St.Patricks Day – Steam Whistle Brewery

Oh man.  Did I ever get Irish this weekend!  For the 2nd year in a row, I decided to celebrate this famous drinking even at Steam Whistle Brewery here in downtown Toronto.  We arrived before 1pm to get in right at the open.  These guys put on a good show!  There was plenty of food, live music and TONS of beer.  I ran into some friends I didn’t know were going.  I drank.  I met some new people.  I drank.  You know how it goes.  I was particularly proud of my special T-shirt.  Every year I try to find something creative to wear and every year I run out of time.  I shop online too late for anything to be delivered on time.  This year, I had my Lucky Charms t-shirt ready to go!  I bought the damn thing last year and waited this long to break it out.  I was...

New York Bound

Meh, I guess I won’t be making any trades this week.  I’m not upset about that.  Know why?  Well, if you can read titles, then you probably figured out that I am headed to New York!  I head down there a couple of times a year.  It really is one of the greatest cities to be in.  Heading there from Toronto is made very easy for me because of three reasons… Cheap flights!  Seriously, this one cost me under $200 round trip Cheap accommodations.  This is because one of my best friends lives there.  I know, that’s cheating. Roam Mobility.  Let me explain what used to be a huge problem and how Roam solved it. In Canada, we have very limited competition with our cellular service providers.  The Ass-Hats in the political arena seem to think that...
