Depending on demand, I’m looking to possibly run the only live 2013 Jellie Trader Training effort during the week of August 26. Interested participants can find out more info on the educational site.
I’ll post a full weekend blog update shortly.
Lease Discussion Blog Post #1 2-3-10
Lease Discussion Blog Post #2 2-7-10
These are dated with respect to costs and fees, yet should still be conceptually relevant posts I did in the initial blog around the time of my NY Trading Expo presentation back in 2010 re: CME Lease Cost-Benefit Analysis. You’ll need to update for current costs & fees, but the concepts are similar. At the time of the 2010 post, monthly IOM lease prices were $600, which have subsequently declined to $350.
Thanks to all who attended … I’m told the interest and attendance was strong.
And the beat and interest goes on with today’s interview with Chuck Jaffe at MoneyLife.
Chuck is a fellow New Englander and regular contributor to MarketWatch, and you can find his complete bio here. He too has been an outspoken critic of some of some of the financial processes and “shingles” hung out there for investors to dry.
Special thanks to Chuck and the entire team at MoneyLife as we continue our ongoing mission of increasing transparency and pursuing equal footing for the little guy.
Now back to trading!
Here’s the link to this week’s TV interview with David Nelson at NewsMax TV.
My favorite quote? “I welcome competition … it brings out the best in all of us.”
Many thanks to David and their team.
Here’s the link to Wednesday’s Business Talk Radio interview with Gabe Wisdom. It’s about 30 minutes long and I thought Gabe did a good job getting at several of the key issues discussed in the book.

Wow … I thought it would be half-decent, but certainly didn’t expect this.
Word apparently is that it’s having a far broader reach than simply a trading industry niche.
With the just-completed book production (here’s a link to Wiley’s just-issued press release for the book), I can now more fully devote my market energies to simply trading.
Yet this chapter of my life, while long delayed as I for years chose not to pursue writing a book as I felt my market energies were much best suited toward trading itself, was necessary in the end.
And in an extremely ironic fashion, as the trading world gets ready to examine 270 pages of heartfelt text detailing my last 52 years of life and 15 years of trading with microscopes, magnifying glasses, magazine reviews, blog opinions, and more, this trader-momentarily-turned-author-returning-to-trader will be doing just the opposite … and that is beginning a whole new chapter.
So while the world looks back at what will hopefully be one of the most unique writings of how an individual worked with his own failings and humanity to produce what some may describe as extraordinary results, I will be looking forward.
You see, I am a trader.
The past is just that … the past.
Yes, in the end, the tale had to be told to try to help others and put the often-confusing and misunderstood industry of trading and financial management in perspective.
Why did it have to be told? Because in a world increasingly full of Gordon-Gekkos, Jon Corzines, and others with similar sleights of hand, the side of legitimacy must have its voice.
Make no mistake: As I detail in the book and have throughout these virtual pages over the last decade, I am human and have a ton of shortcomings. Yet the truth once again deserves its turn … even with all of its good, bad, and ugly qualities.
Otherwise, we simply continue to live in a house of mirrors.
And while I encourage you to momentarily join the trading world and look back at my failures and successes such that history can help you avoid repeating some of my pratfalls while grasping a few golden kernels, I similarly encourage you to then look forward to tomorrow, next week, and far beyond.
For tomorrow is one of the greatest gifts we can receive.
And that’s where you’ll find me.
