I really like twitter. I knew I would. I studied it for a few years before joining. Once I began tweeting, I was certain it would become a big part of my life online.
I am however cognizant of the noise. In all my years following stocks, my biggest pet peeve had become people touting their wins, while at the same time shuffling their losses underneath the rug. So I made a pact to do neither.
Instead, I simply share my ideas. Once a stock starts moving, I leave it for others to
pump discuss. I’m not going to celebrate winners with exclamation points & sky high expectations, nor will I whine about or lament a loser. For instance, updated charts after a stock has moved.. cui bono? —there’s no value in these other than to support one’s ego / marketing agenda.
I’d rather offer up a new idea.
Of course, there’s an expectation that the reader should always make his or her own decision. It’s your money. It is not important what I’m doing. What matters is: do you like a particular setup? Can you define tolerable risk? Create your own plan & capitalize on it.
Due to my steadfast belief in autonomy, I’ve rarely felt the need to provide a disclaimer.
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you have probably noticed that I’m capable of churning out a ton of suggestions. I wanted to come up with a way to emphasize some of my favorites. I’ll only share with you the things that I believe look good, but occasionally they seem fantastic. How to differentiate?
I’m going to try something new over the next few weeks. When you see stars in a tweet of mine, these are the setups I’m focused most intently upon. Not everything will be rated, but five stars will be best, & I promise to use this designation sparingly.
As always, thank you for your interest in my work.
