I cut my teeth on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, so I saw firsthand how the “sausage was made” – and it usually wasn’t pretty.

In 2008, I went down the rabbit hole.I thought I could make money in any market.A naive and unrealistic perception.I was starting to manage client accounts whileworking on a trading desk.And then, I was fired!It was time to go full time on my own.I tried to be superman, but realized it was only acustom.I lost money!I panicked!I became desperate.I n…

A fellow Sizzler wrote in yesterday asking, "Youdon't discuss a lot about investing in stocks,why?"There's a good reason why and remember, this isjust my opinion.Very few probably know a high-level executive at apublicly traded company.However, let's pretend you lived next door to one.If you owned shares of the company and asked themany question re…
 
I feel like a hypocrite saying this because Iloathe financial institutions, but I got back frommaking a deposit.The reality is that there are no other greatoptions available.It's similar to the current U.S. PresidentialElection.Good hearted people are working at these places,but the whole operation is made to nickel and dimeus slowly.I'm not sure w…
