Buy a coffee

I launched this blog in 1995. Since then, we have published 1603 articles. It's all free and means a lot of work in my spare time. I enjoy sharing knowledge and experiences with you.

Your support

Have you learned something new by reading, listening, or watching my content? With your help, I can spend enough time to keep publishing great content in the future.

Or, select an option below:

A small slice of my data processing time each month

It's ongoing work running this site and what's really great is ongoing support. Here's a sense of what goes into this site: research topics for discussion. Manage the Tech stuff: website, SEO, graphics, email, back-end servers, DNS routing, edge servers. Create advertisements and load the campaigns in Google Ads. Manage the social media forums (Facebook, Reddit, Twitter). Write updates to the blog. Keep GitHub up-to-date.

$4.50 — A large cappuccino at my local

Things just work better with coffee! I like to take the kids to school then grab a cappuccino from my local on the way home before beginning the things that take mental energy.

$8.99 — A month of Netflix for some quiet nights in

A lot of the work on this happens after hours when I should be relaxing on the couch. Help me make it so and I promise to keep off the devices for a bit!

$11.50 — Fund a month of email delivery

This site sends out thousands of emails every month. For that volume and to ensure deliverability, I need to pay MailChimp.

$20 — Pay for one month of AWS storage fees

Websites are not free. The storage alone takes some cash. If you are willing to lighten the burden, we can keep this site up online.

$30 — One hour's pay for a graphics artist

Art doesn't create itself without a hand to guide it. I can't draw, so I need to pay others to help.

$45 — Pay a full-stack web developer for one hour

Much of the work on this site happens on weekends which means giving up time with the kids. Help me pay the developers so I can give my kids more time.

Lonely 🔗

Trading & investing online can be lonely, which causes problems like:

  • Being limited by your own perspectives
  • Not being able to see blind spots
  • Repeating mistakes over & over
  • Hiding from losses
  • Revenge trading

Here’s how you can create connection & accountability:

Community 🔗

Join a community of people with similar goals & trading styles.

“Trading groups” get a bad name because of pump-and-dumps, fake gurus, and blind-leading-the-blind noise…

But I’ve found getting around the right group of people can help you grow and improve weak points.

Share your Losses 🔗

Openly share your LOSSES.

It’s easy to brag about wins, but that doesn’t help you improve.

Sharing losses helps you learn from them.

Analyzing losses can show you what you did wrong and how to get better.

No regrets 🔗

Follow a “no regrets” trading strategy…

Ask things like, “If the market dumped here, would I regret NOT taking some profits?”

Or, “If this breakout works, would I regret NOT pulling the trigger on an entry?”

The goal is to eliminate regrets no matter what the market does.

In real life 🔗

Get around people IRL…

As much as I love being able to work online, there’s no replacement for in-person connection.

It’s just… different.

Attend conferences, seminars, and meetups with the RIGHT group of people.
