Here’s a guide in how to get the most from this site:

  1. Just read the daily postings to get an irreverent, hopefully incisive view of the general economic situation you face today and its impact on your investments. You won’t need to log in to accompany me in my daily rants, raves, pontifications and ponderings at the always fascinating, often-inane world of finance. If you’re as addicted as I am, that in itself will be worthwhile. Just sit back, read and laugh -or scoff if you must. Perhaps a passage or two might even save you some financial pain along the way and – one can hope – may even allow you to prosper in your own finances.
  2. But if you’re the hands-on type, jump in and respond with your postings. Just an email and a name are required (pseudonyms are fine). It’s always nice to know this site isn’t a pure exercise in personal hubris. Besides, I’m sure my two other readers are also interested in your comments…
  3. A section of the site will be devoted to specific concrete financial strategies, geared to each of the risk tolerances. Click on the appropriate category link at the right. If you don’t find the link, it’s not there. (Patience, on this blog, is always the highest virtue.)
  4. Because I have growing ranks of satisfied customers, some of whom actually pay me for investment advice in my day job, there will be certain areas of this web site restricted to member clients. At times, the same information will be available to the general public, but with a few days of delay. Beware of acting on the information when the strategies are dated!
  5. If, despite your better judgment, you decide you would like to explore joining those exalted ranks of registered customers, simply click on the contact page and I’ll respond.
  6. To quickly find all past postings or pages on a given topic,click on the Search Site link. A list of any and matches will appear.
  7. Last, but most important of all, tell me what I can do to improve this site! Go on, man (woman), here’s your chance! Carpe diem!
