An honest honest money advocate
First and foremost, yes, I am a gold bug. That is, I am if ‘gold bug’ means strongly favoring a more straightforward monetary system (i.e. one not run entirely on inflation by a central planning agency) that would level the playing field for a much wider segment of the population.
Unfortunately, over the years I have realized that a good portion of the gold
cult “community”, as it calls itself, is corrupt to its core much like the system it rails (and promotes its agenda) against.
So that not only bleeds into my public writing (a reader, several years ago: “are you trying to become the most hated person in Goldbugville?”), but has also helped me evolve NFTRH analysis to be sure it is dealing with the reality of any given moment aside from my personal idealistic views. Market realities are more often than not unaligned with our ideals.
I owned and operated a progressive medical device/equipment/component manufacturing company for 21 years, keeping the company’s fundamentals in alignment with global economic realities through various economic cycles. The natural progression from this experience is an understanding of and appreciation for global macro-economics as it relates to individual markets and sectors.
Biiwii.com was created in 2004 as a way to help communicate a message about deeply rooted problems with irreconcilable levels of debt and leverage within the inflated financial system. My concerns were confirmed and message justified in 2007 as the system began to purge these distortions, resulting in a climactic washout extending from October, 2008 to March, 2009. It was a manifestation of the boom/bust cycles hard wired into a Keynesian monetary/economic system.
The URL ‘biiwii.com’ came from the old saying ‘but it is what it is’ and this sentiment addressed the need to remain impartial about the markets and free of dogmatic beliefs. Over the long-term, the world changes and any successful market participant should be ready to accept changes or revisions to a given plan or worse, dogma. Centralized monetary management is unsound, but not necessarily bearish for prices. In fact, in between the periodic macro liquidations the system can be quite bullish for prices.
NFTRH Premium was launched right into the teeth of one of these liquidations on September 28, 2008. Anyone can manage a calm market. Not everyone can manage a crash or be ready to deploy capital at a time of max fear. NFTRH has successfully done just that through two major liquidations, a few cyclical bear phases and a whole lot of inflationary bull since 2008.
Geek-like interests in technical analysis and sentiment/psychology, and various unique macro market ratio indicators are part of the successful mix, with the result being a financial market report, Notes From the Rabbit Hole (NFTRH), combining these attributes to provide a service that is engaged and successful in all market environments.
