Presidency Thwarted, Ron Paul Movement Morphing

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 29, 2008

I continue to monitor the followers of Ron Paul (via 347 RSS Feeds currently), and have been neglecting to post some of what I have been reading.

Perhaps the best way to correct that over sight is to start with the new Ron Paul Book, The Revolution: A Manifesto. He appeared on C-SPAN’s Book-TV recently, and here is the video:

I think it is good for the Ron Paul people to stay in the GOP, because this is the year that a Libertarian Party could take off. It is better that the movement be split right now between the GOP and the strengthening Libertarian Party.

Video: Video Technical Analysis Stock Market Review For 0906

Posted by Thunder Pig on September 6, 2007

I am heavily into using charts to determine my market moves, (disclaimer—I take all my money out of the market in late July, and return sometime in September or October) and I discovered this guy a few months ago. I never got around to highlighting him until now. He blogs at Alpha Trends, and he usually puts out a video or two a day during trading, or shortly after the markets close.

John J Murphy is the best place to start, and get the study guide, too!

Martin Pring is also someone I study.
