News & Updates

Making sure you’re up to date

If you haven’t been following the updates on the Facebook page or via Twitter (Why not!?) there have been a couple of items you’ve missed.

  • I did an interview with Stocks & Commodities magazine which will be published in the October issue. The focus was on forex trading and markets. The October issue is handed out to attendees at the Vegas Futures and Forex Expo in late September. That’s the one I’m presenting at on September 25th.
  • I’ve begun reading the book Buy – Don’t Hold by Leslie Masonson. When I’m done I’ll post a review.
  • Trading FAQs contributor Billy Williams has an article in this month’s Futures Magazine: How to find stock market trends.
  • I took on the Chief Market Analyst at Currensee on his ideas for what the Fed should do.

I use Facebook and Twitter for quick hit sort of updates – stuff which generally doesn’t warrant a blog post of its own. Make sure you’re following one or both to stay updated.

New The Essentials of Trading Facebook Page

facebookI finally got around to creating a “fan page” on Facebook for The Essentials of Trading. Given how many copies of the book have been sold I figure there must be at least a few fans out there. 🙂

This is something that’s been on my To-Do list for months, and a number of folks have encouraged me to do it. It was just one of those things I never got around to doing, though, partly because I wasn’t sure how much work was going to be involved in putting up something respectable.

Well, yesterday I found out that it wasn’t that much work at all. I probably put in maybe an hour of actual work, and the bulk of that was writing the HTML for the “Welcome” page.

You can see it here. Make sure to become a fan.

Now I consider myself to still be a neophyte when it comes to Facebook, so there might be some things I could do or do better to improve things. If so, please let me know. I’m definitely open to feedback.

Aside from that, definitely stop by and leave comments, ask questions, start discussions, and all that stuff. I’m looking forward to making the fan page a useful additional supporting component to my overall trading education effort.
