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 5/27/2017

Greetings!

The account was up 2.31% this week to a new high of 144% of inception value.

I thought I would be finished with the draft of the third report report by now, but there was some good news and bad news. The good news was that while reviewing my research, I found a much simpler way to apply it, which also has a higher and more consistent correlation to future price behavior.  The bad news is that I have to rewrite a lot of the report to reflect this.  Bleh. I’ll see how far I can get on that this weekend, and report back next week.

Until then…keep pipping up!

Update 5/20/2017

Greetings!

All rosy news today!

The account was up 8.4%, which is a nice change after two weeks of losses. That brings the equity to 140% of inception value, or a 40% return in a little less than 8 months.

The draft of the third report is about 80% complete now, so I expect to finish it off this weekend.  There are still revisions and technical edits to do after that, but now I’m hoping to have it available by the end of May; a full month ahead of my original goal.

As always…keep pipping up!

Update 5/13/2017

Greetings!

The account was down for a second week with a  2.68% loss.

My draft for the third research report is about 45% complete, and I should get that up to around 60% this weekend.  I’m still shooting for the end of June to make that available on the site.  Once that’s done, I’ll need to build out some site pages, after which I can finally get back to writing full posts each week.

Until next time…keep pipping up!

Update 5/6/2017

Greetings!

The account was down 1.82% this week.  I’ve been keeping away from the Euro for the past couple of weeks pending the French elections.  I’m looking forward to getting a lot of work done this weekend on the third research report.

Until next time…keep pipping up!

The account rose a whopping 10.38% this week, to a new high of 136% of inception value. Still plugging away on the Fundamental Potential Index e-book. My goal is to have it available on the site by the end of June.

Until next time…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!

The account was down by 4.55% this week, giving up about half its gains from last week. I actually managed to write the draft of the introduction to the third research report last week. Yay!

Until next week…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!
