While “penning” the previous post I looked to my girlfriend for a bit of advice.
On occasion it’s been suggested here at the blog that I try to “lighten up a bit” and perhaps try to stay “a bit more positive”. With this in mind, I feel that several months have gone by where my writing in general has been at least “moderately up beat”, and that I’ve done a “reasonable job” as to not get “too down” on any one thing in particular.
I don’t think it’s a secret for anyone reading here, that I struggle with the situation in the United States. I got involved with Forex as to my interests in “all things global” and in this case how “money” plays a role. The fact that the United States holds the world’s “current” reserve currency presents me with a bit of a conundrum as I’m not particularly interested in “American culture”.
Not to say it’s not great, only that – for me…….I would far rather “Bolivia” had reserve status as I could at least “learn something new ” here day to day.
I find the day-to-day situation in the U.S as the number one element in trading forex, that I would much rather “do without”. It’s not interesting and it’s certainly not “fun”. It can’t be ignored mind you – but it’s certainly a drag.
My girlfriend suggested that I “go easy” and of course – respect the valued readers that take the time to show their support here at the blog and…….yes of course, I truly DO value the readership and by no means want to “get down” on the U.S.
Then it occurred to me….perhaps I should introduce readers to one of the few “other people” I actually take the time to read. I showed Laura. She changed her tune.
Ladies and gentleman I am proud to introduce the critically acclaimed Dr. Paul Roberts.
If you think I might consider biting my tongue on occasion ( likely never gonna happen) I encourage you to not only read but BOOKMARK Dr. Roberts home page, as President Reagan appointed Dr. Roberts Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, not to mention his time as associate editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal.
Dr Roberts “has” the credibility to back such strong opinions.
Me I’m just a gorilla.
Interesting post Kong. Thank you for the links. Always appreciate the blog. You provide good information here.
Good day today. Good week for that matter.
So you cleared out all yen longs or did I misunderstand? I unweighted big time but still hold a couple light yen longs and entered some small usd long positions. Thanks again and enjoy the night!
Yes I’m out on JPY longs….but will jump back in a heartbeat.
It was time to put some cash in the bank – not to say they won’t keep on rolling.
