Recipe for a Trading Blog (Reprise)

Slow market day headed into Easter weekend, thought I’d bring back a classic.  If you didn’t catch it on February 24th it’s new to you!  Have a good one – JB

This is my great grandmother’s recipe – she blogged over at SeekingShelter back in the day, a site for stock-trading refugees headed to Ellis Island…

Ingredients:

1 Jesse Livermore quote

3 PerfCharts, preferably from Stockcharts.com but Finviz will do in a pinch

1/3 cups vague statements about position sizing

1/3 cups ambivalent chatter about how we’re in “a market of stocks”

1 28 oz can poker metaphors (can substitute football metaphors if blogging in the fall)

A punch of “risk management” platitudes

A dash of “my discipline”

Instructions:

1.  Preheat a conventional oven to 375° with CNBC on in the background

2.  Combine all ingredients in a skillet set on a medium flame, reserving poker metaphors to the side

3.  Stir with blatantly unnecessary Fibonacci fan

4.  Add snark to taste

5.  When content is browned, mix in poker metaphors, transfer to oven for 20 minutes

6.  Check traffic while baking, “can’t believe Tadas didn’t pick up that post yesterday”

7.  Remove from oven, let cool 5 minutes before cross-posting to Seeking Alpha

8.  Garnish with links to another post you wrote last week, serve via StockTwits
