I do follow markets in a methodical, risk-managed way. I do look for important intermediate turning points that can bring large gains (or preserve large amounts of capital). I do care about what is in play and why, yet I filter at all times with technicals, ratios, sentiment and all that fun stuff.
I don't treat you like an automaton, blindly following the guru. I don't treat you like a child. I expect you (well, NFTRH subscribers anyway) to think, weigh and act as you see fit, not as I see fit. I will just continue in 2012 to do my best to make sure we are on the right side. I'd be more than pleased if people sitting on the fence would join NFTRH.
Short of that, there is a PayPal donate button on the side bar as well. I worked hard this year and am going to work hard in '12. If you've gained value by reading this blog, I'd gladly accept any tip you would care to leave there.
I'll probably post more before the year ends, but I just wanted to pop this post up, toot my horn a bit and wish you all a Happy New Year. Getting this destruction in gold and silver in 2011 is a good thing, because it appears we no longer have downside targets hanging over our heads, beyond any short term grinding around for a final bottom. Get your thinking caps on for 2012 and for crying out loud, get the hell away from that herd if you have not already done so.
