Welcome…

ScottWelcome to The Capitalist Trader, where I discuss markets, money, and math, while promoting reason and liberty. I’m Scott, better known around the interwebz as Capitalist, and I’ll be your host.

If this is your first time at The Capitalist Trader, you may want to read about the site and maybe even a little about me and my mission.  Have a question or a comment? Head over to the Contact tab.

I’ve traded several different markets including equities, fixed income, and options since the 1980’s (yep, I’m old).  Since 2004 however, I’ve concentrated on the foreign exchange, or Forex, markets. Many of the trading resources you’ll find on the site relate specifically to Forex.

So come on in, make yourself comfortable and…keep pipping up!

Update 4/22/2017

Greetings!

The account was up 4.73% this week.  I’m making some progress on the third research report, but the Model chapter is too dry; it needs some illustrations.  I also need to review some of my old research on the indicator.

Until next time…keep pipping up!

Update 4/15/2017

Greetings and happy Tax Day for those in the US!

The account was up a slight 2.40% this week, a welcome breather from the two consecutive declines we just saw. My taxes are all filed now, so I expect to get some work done on the third research report this weekend. It’s almost 30% complete.

Until next time…keep pipping up!

Update 4/8/2017

The account had its second drop in a row this week with a whopping loss of 8.87%. I’ve been trying to get my taxes done, so I haven’t done much work on the next research report.

Until next time…keep pipping up!

Update — 3/25/2017

Greetings!

The account was up a whopping 9.7% this week, bringing it to a new high of 132% of inception value. I’m still trying to find time to work on the third $8 research report; the one on the Fundamental Potential Index. The flip side of that coin is that I’m raking in the bucks at my time-consuming job, so I’m getting back on my feet slowly but surely.

Until next week…keep pipping up!

Update 3-11-2017

Greetings!

The account had a nice gain of 3.76% this week, bringing it up to about 124% of its original value back at the beginning of October.  In site news, I’m working on a third $8 Research Report. This time, it’s the long-awaited report on the Fundamental Potential Index (FPI).

So stay tuned for that, and until next time…keep pipping up!

Update 3-4-2017

Greetings!

I’m slowly digging myself out of my financial plight. In terms of trading, the account had a slight decline this week, but managed to hold onto the lion’s share of its gains from the prior week.

So until next week…keep pipping up!

Ongoing income crisis

Greetings all!

Once again I’ve been MIA from the site for a couple of weeks, and once again it’s because I’m struggling to make ends meet in today’s minimum wage economy.

This time, the company for which I was working got bought out, they changed the payroll system, and the paychecks for many of the employees (myself included) went down a black hole, never to be seen again.  I promptly went broke, walked out of that job, and went back to my previous one. So for now, I’m scraping by and trying to recover.

Things are looking slightly rosier now though. I’ve managed to update the CapTraderPro dashboard for the first time in three weeks, and now I can continue on my quest to monetize the site, freeing myself up to continue creating great useful content for forex traders.

So…yeah.

Until next time…keep pipping up!

New research report – Weekly Price Action Statistics

Greetings!

Yes, I’m still alive and kicking.  I’ve been concentrating on the new job I mentioned in the last post which involves working overnight, so I’ve been neglecting the site. But actually…no I haven’t!  I just haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve been working on something else. And here it is!

Yes, I’ve finally finished the second research report. Next, I’ll begin working on the report which details the Fundamental Potential Index that I’ve mentioned in the past.

So I’ll get to work on that while you…keep pipping up!
