An excerpt from my new book, "Tricks of the Trade - Hard-Learned Lessons from a Real Wall Street Veteran"

Lesson 4 - Go In Big, Or Don't Go In At all

Fortune favors the bold . Those who have made it in trading know that you simply cannot succeed without taking large risks. It's not sufficient just to have a consistently profitable trading strategy. No matter how profitable your strategy, if you trade with a meek amount of capital, you will never make it big. Professional traders are not afraid to risk it all in a split second, without even breaking a sweat. The pros are trained killers with nerves of steel - when they see an opportunity, they seize it with both hands and don't look back. Risk really isn't a factor when you know what you're doing. Champion traders laugh when amateurs ask them about 'risk management' and 'setting stops' - elite traders never set stops. They trade in and out of the market using their laser sharp instinct and informed market analysis, and they never doubt themselves. Using stops is an indication that you lack conviction in your position. If you feel the need to 'play it safe' and have a fear of losing, you have already lost the battle. The hard reality is, most people are just not cut out to be top traders, and are doomed to failure or mediocrity. It is up to you to determine whether you truly have what it takes, and if so, to have the courage to risk it all.

Or just invest in an index fund.

Or hire a broker? I mean, they get you at EVERY turn. Retail stock play is quite dead.

of course the traders are not scared...it's not their money they are playing with...and if they go bankrupt, they get bailed out...

The people I know (old New England money,TPTB) don't "do" risk. They have coat hangars holding their bumpers on, too. They always go for the sure thing. Yes, all in. Decisive. They like real estate and other hard assets. Big time. 


If the economy goes down, PMs go up. If the economy goes up (maybe TBTB aren't pedling fiction, maybe, because they have control), PMs go up. 

Diversified deep waters will reduce all risk.

Spot on - and very well said.
War, revolution, earthquakes and such - are the only risks.
And patience and a crystal clear strategy - and likely a "proper" life style - are the tools.
True aristocrats are VERY rare.

Most humans though are just sheeple, gamblers - or worse. Either this way or that way.
But that is a well hidden secret.

Good day Tylers and all,

Has there been any coverage of the probable death of the smart phone market due to the end of subsidized prices by the mobile carriers?

I don't know anyone who is interested in a cute phone for $600.

semperfi's picture

answer:  women

before any downvotes pour in  - all the women I personally know who have recently bought phones have all paid $600+

Somebody gots ta pay fo mah phony bill!

3rdWorldTrillionaire's picture

The carriers are "financing" them with zero interest over a contract term. The sheeps will add $20-25/month to their phone bill to get the new hot phone for 20 months.

Jim in MN's picture

LOL this is like the most downvotes I've ever gotten.  I should ask cell phone questions more often.  Where's Reggie anyway?

You should try harder. I get pretty good down votes without trying to hard, just mention the terrorist jewUSSA occupiers and murderes running their shit show, and you will get plenty.

I never downvoted you though.

I could post links all day, but prefer not to, hey, you give the fuckers money and weapons 24/7, and your government gave the concent and aided the project, you people are totally fucking clueless.

AIPAC runs your shithole, and you cannot even face it, or any other facts about your Kuntry.

By the way, you wankers:


2014 US Mobile Phone sales fall by 15% and handset replacement cycle lengthens to historic high

By Roger Entner on February 10, 2015 (a year ago, which is why I am wondering now)

In 2014, roughly 143 million mobile phones were sold in the United States, approximately 90% of them smartphones. This is a decline of 25 million phones from 2013 when approximately 168 million phones were sold – and only half of them were smartphones. The decline in phone sales is predominately due to the rise of equipment financing plans, compounded by slower new subscriber additions. At the same time, consumers’ phone purchase habits have changed significantly.

Somewhere, in some bank's boardroom, a mechanical voice, similar to those heard in aircraft cockpits during crashes, is saying "Voot-voot! Pull! Up! Voot-voot! Pull! Up!"

Currently looking to short stocks on any late rally but may well lose my nerve, later.
