I have had a lot on my plate lately. For starters, I had to deal with the fallout of a certifiably crazy ex-girlfriend. This black-widow basically led me on and played me for eight months taking advantage of my kindness only to stab me in the back in a most spectacular fashion!
Anyways, I learned an incredibly valuable life-lesson from the experience and that's:
When it comes to crazy women; Avoid them from the very beginning. There are always red-flags.
Everything you need to know about dealing with women can be summed up in this 100% accurate video.
There is a direct correlation between hot & crazy. The Danger-Zone is very real and must be avoided at all costs!
With this crazy girl officially out of my life for good I can now return my focus towards the priorities:
Bettering myself and making a fortune through finance & markets.
- Finish my undergrad degree in Business-Finance.
- Find a job with a hedge fund or other type of money management institution.
- I then want to further advance my career and earning potential with CFA certification.
I will never give up trading but trying to make a living purely trading is a suckers game.
The more intelligent route is having a 'real' job. Safety to fall back on. I went to a meeting of the schools Finance Club and one of the professors claimed that CFAs make an average salary of $250k/yr!
That's what I need to do. I need to gain a foothold in the financial industry and trade on the side.
I will work my hands to the bone, I will do whatever it takes.
I aim to achieve success & will stop at nothing until I have made my fortune.
Short: Crude Oil
I was flat for a long time but on Friday Sugar broke out surging more than 5%!
Crude has been chopping it's way lower as the constant rumors of oil production cuts slowly lose their effectiveness.
Equities are simply much too dangerous to mess with at this time. The SPX chopped sideways for 2 months only to get obliterated in a day on 'Fed Rate Hike' rumors. Until these Central Banks get out of the markets, I fear that equities will continue to diverge from any semblance of traditional fundamental valuation metrics.
