life as a trader

My early entrepreneurial days focused on the commodity markets. Future and options markets, more complexity called derivatives. During that time, I met Ron Carmichael, a trader that started in his successful career from his dorm room. He is now sharing is trading insights and lessons an a new website and blog.

What a time to be involved in the financial markets. Ron's thought, observations and lessons are worth a read.

Beetles, Bees & Butterfiles

The bumble bees were mainly dead, the butterflies were inactive or soaking up a glimpse from the sun, the only happy insects seemed to be the black beetles as the moved with purpose across the land.
